Adam Hilarie was fatally shot by a woman and three others. Police said Hilarie met the woman at online dating site PlentyOfFish.
Reports said that Hilarie from Florida took the woman bowling after they met through the online dating site. The next night, the woman came back with three other men and a gun, then committed robbery with homicide.
“In cases like this, it’s easy for us to put ourselves in the shoes of the family,” Deputy Chief Andy Ray noted, giving a detailed report of the arrest of four people in connection with the murder, including Bustos.
Joshua Ellington, 26, Andre Warner, 26, and Gary Gray, 31, were also taken into custody and charged with conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery with a firearm and first-degree murder. However, Ray was unsure of how the robbery aggravated to that degree.
The arrest report said that the 27-year-old victim begged for his life. During the entire ordeal, he did not put up a fight and had been constantly telling them that he had a 5-year-old daughter.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, police investigators got a lead in the case after they came across a witness report saying the victim was with a young woman on Thursday night. This made their hunt easier, as Winter Haven police picked up Bustos in a separate burglary over the weekend.
Police documents reported that Hilarie was shot in the head with a .38-caliber gun. The four burglars took an Xbox, video games, three flat-screen televisions, an iPhone, a wallet, and other items.
