Woman’s body found in carjacked and torched vehicle

WINTER SPRINGS, FL – A massive manhunt is underway in Florida as authorities seek individuals linked to a horrific carjacking and murder. The victim, a woman, was discovered within the charred remains of a sport utility vehicle (SUV).

The incident, which involved a 2017 white Dodge Durango, occurred shortly before 6 p.m. on Thursday in Winter Springs, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office. The SUV was allegedly driven by Katherine Altagracia Guerrero De Aguasvivas, a 31-year-old resident of Homestead, Florida.

A bystander at a busy intersection captured the carjacking on camera. The footage reveals a masked man in a black hoodie, brandishing what seems to be an automatic weapon, approaching the driver’s side of the SUV. A green Acura sedan was spotted trailing closely behind. The video shows one of the suspects opening the driver’s door before the passenger door also swings open. Both vehicles then made a U-turn and sped off.

The witness who filmed the incident called 911, urging immediate action. The victim reportedly contacted her husband during the incident, who advised her not to stop. Despite claims that Aguasvivas was visiting family in the area, investigators have yet to locate any relatives in central Florida.

By 7 p.m., witnesses in neighboring Osceola County reported hearing gunshots and later found a burning vehicle believed to be Aguasvivas’. The Durango bore a Florida license plate, KVFF22, and a “for sale” sign with a phone number linked to Miguel Angel Aguasvivas Lizardo, of Florida City.

Seminole County Sheriff Dennis Lemma expressed grave concern over the incident, stating that both suspects should be considered armed and dangerous. Aguasvivas, originally from the Dominican Republic and a U.S. citizen, reportedly lived with her husband in Homestead, Florida, where they worked at a barbershop and beauty salon. As of Sunday, no further updates on the case were available.

Authorities are urging anyone with information on the case to contact the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office CrimeLine.
