The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office reported to Historic City News that there has been a break in the investigation of the February 22nd murder of 32-year-old Zuheily Roman Rosado; a convenience store clerk at the Mobil Mart located on SR-100 at I-95 in Palm Coast.
An outside camera captured the image of the killer as he entered the store. The 5’10” tall man, wearing blue jeans and a dark t-shirt, is seen in the video pulling his shirt up over his face. The man is observed fleeing the store, moments later, heading west towards the north-bound entrance ramp to I-95. The entire incident occurred – from start to finish – in less than 30 seconds.
“We haves scheduled a Press Conference at the Sheriff Operations Center in Bunnell for 11:00 a.m. tomorrow morning to announce the arrest,” Commander Bob Weber, media relations and public information officer, told Historic City News reporters. “Additional details of the investigation will be released at the Press Conference and we are currently in the process of arranging for a member of the immediate family to attend.”
At 10:20 p.m., a customer entered the convenience store to find the clerk lying on the floor in a pool of blood. Within moments of the gruesome discovery, an off-duty firefighter stopped at the station and checked the victim — he told the emergency call operator that he believed the victim was already dead.
Within approximately three minutes, nine patrol units, including K-9 officers assisted by air support provided by the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, had established a perimeter and they were searching for the killer. Sheriff’s detectives on the scene, along with investigators from the State Attorneys Homicide Investigative Unit and Florida Department of Law Enforcement Crime Scene Unit, searched the area unsuccessfully.
The shocking surveillance video, published by Historic City News, shows the killer with clear and deliberate purpose as he walks into the store, runs up to the counter, shoots Rosado, and then turns and runs out of the store. He does not handle any merchandise, he does not attempt to snatch money from the register or take anything of value — except the life of the mother of six children.
