    POLK COUNTY, Fla. ? Authorities are looking for a Polk County man believed to be responsible for an elderly woman?s death, sheriff?s officials said.



    The 39-year-old suspect, Aroldo Enrique Paz, is wanted in connection with the homicide of 74-year-old Perfecta Paz Paz, of Polk City, with whom he resided. She was found buried in a shallow grave in her yard, showing signs of suffering a violent death, according to the Polk County Sheriff?s Office.

    Aroldo was last seen Tuesday afternoon and is currently at-large, deputies said. Authorities suspect he may be headed to Texas.

    "He should be considered armed and dangerous,? Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said. ?Our homicide detectives, who are simply the best, will do everything possible to find him, bring him back, and ensure that justice is served for Perfecta Paz Paz and her family.?

    Deputies first became involved with the case Wednesday when the victim?s sister reported Paz Paz missing.

    According to a news release, the sister reported last seeing Paz Paz alive Tuesday at 5:30 a.m. When she returned to the house Tuesday afternoon, she saw Aroldo in the yard, and he told her the victim had left, according to sheriff?s officials. On Wednesday afternoon, when the victim?s sister came home from work, her sister was still not home and Aroldo, his car and his belongings were gone, deputies said.

    "She continued trying to call the victim but would get no answer,? the news release said. ?The victim usually kept some cash in her home, and it was also missing.?

    During the ongoing investigation, another relative told detectives the victim had expressed her desire to move out because Aroldo and her were ?always fighting.?

    While investigating around the residence, detectives found ?freshly disturbed soil,? where they found the victim?s body.

    Aroldo?s warrant carries charges of first-degree murder, grand theft and tampering, Deputies said in the release that he is believed to be driving a 1999 beige Toyota Camry with the Texas license plate PTC9735.

    Anyone with information that could lead to the suspect?s whereabouts is encouraged to contact Heartland Crime Stoppers. Tips can be left anonymously by phone at 800-226-8477, by dialing ?**TIPS? from a dial pad, online on their website, or via the P3tips app on smartphone or tablet.

    This is a link to a Polk County Sheriff press conference about the case, it's 20 mins long & I didn't watch the whole thing but I did a quick write up of the part I did watch

    The sheriff says Perfecta & her sister live on acreage with fruit trees etc & are near woods. They initially investigated the case as a missing person & thought she may have gone for a walk & become incapacitated somewhere nearby. He says her grave was well concealed & it was only discovered because in hope of getting an idea which direction to search, a detective with ag/ranch experience decided to walk the fenceline to see if there were any gaps she might've exited through.

    He says the detective only discovered the grave because he accidentally stepped on it & his foot sank. It had been carefully disguised to look just like the surrounding area & would've been missed otherwise.


    Also, Aroldo is her nephew but also her adopted son. She adopted him when he was 3 but when he was 6 she emigrated to the US & he chose to stay in Honduras with his father. He came later in 2003 when he was 20/21. They say he was injured while working in construction & the sisters agreed to let him stay there while he recovered. He'd been living with them for 7mths & had fought with Perfecta in the past over money she lent him which he hadn't repaid. He allegedly threatened her with a gun during an argument over money.

    If he was her adopted son why would he stay in Honduras if his dad didnt have custody?

    I was wondering that too. Maybe it was an informal family arrangement?

    Polk County man wanted for adoptive mother’s ‘violent death’ captured in Texas, deputies say

    The Polk County Sheriff’s Office said Texas authorities have arrested a man who was wanted for killing his aunt who adopted him.

    Aroldo Paz, 39, was detained in the Houston area on Monday, according to deputies. He was being sought in connection to the murder of his adoptive mother, 74-year old Perfecta Paz Paz in Polk City.

    Sheriff Grady Judd said Aroldo Paz moved in with Perfecta and her sister after he was injured in an incident at a Texas construction site.
    Detectives issued a warrant for Aroldo Paz’s arrest on charges of first-degree murder, grand theft, and tampering with evidence.

    They said they learned he may be in the Houston area and alerted U.S. Marshals. The marshals located Aroldo Paz on Monday and took him into custody.

    He is being held at the Harris County Jail without bond as he waits to be extradited to Polk County.
