    FL - Octavio Reyes, 36, Riverview, 30 August 2014 *Arrests*



    http://www.wfla.com/story/26503234/f...-riverview-man

    Octavio Reyes vanished without a trace. The 36-year-old Riverview construction worker was last seen on August 30th in the parking lot of a local Wal-Mart. He was supposed to go out with friends to Club 301 that night but never showed. Reyes, a father of six, a family man with a good job, a great life and a ton of friends, left behind a mystery...

    One week after he was last seen his custom-painted truck was found torched in a wooded area of Ruskin. The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office took possession of the burned-out vehicle with the hope it might lead to the missing man...

    Octavio's family is so desperate to find him they even dove into a canal close to where the truck was found to see if they could find his body... His niece has access to his bank account and tells Eight on Your Side his money hasn't been touched... When they call his cell phone it goes directly to voicemail.

    Search continues for missing Riverview Dad
    6:37 p.m. EDT September 11, 2014
    Detectives are retracing Reyes' path and tracking his bank records and cell phones. But Reyes' family has been trying to reach him, since he made plans to meet up at Club 301 on August 30th but didn't show up.
    His family tells 10 News that Reyes and the mother of his kids had been in divorce court the day before he disappeared, but he didn't seem upset.
    "He's been separated from his wife for three years. They were going through a divorce, but he never gave us a reason to even think that he would want to just get up and leave and leave everything," says Reyes.
    "Hopefully, there's not going to be a bad guy in this thing, and this guy is just sitting out on the beach somewhere trying to get away from everything and just hasn't called and notified his family," says Det. McKinnon.

    Her cousin later saw Reyes at Walmart on Gibsonton Drive about 10:30 p.m., and Reyes said he would see him at the club later, she said. Octavio Reyes never arrived. Juanita Reyes reported him missing the next day.

    "I was waiting for it to be 24 hours and I reported him, because he's never done anything like this," she said. "That's not normal behavior for him."

    Authorities found his 2000 Ford F-150 burned on Shell Point Road in Ruskin on Aug. 31. "They've been out there the last several days and are still working some leads," said Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office spokesman Larry McKinnon, speaking of investigators. "But there's no better tool out there than the public's eyes."

    "I don't know what happened to him...I just want justice for him and for them to pay for everything they did to him," said Octavio's wife Rosario Reyes.

    Sunday evening, she stood with her six children, trying to comfort them through tears after Hillsborough County Sheriff's investigators say their father was found dead, buried in a wooded area just south of Ruskin off of US 41...

    Reyes' was buried just a few miles south of where his burned out truck was discovered in Ruskin the day after he went missing two weeks ago.

    Heartbreaking. I wonder if the man arrested is known or if this was random.

    RIP Octavio.

    Deputies arrested Bermudez late Sunday. According to the sheriff's office, Bermudez admitted to robbing Reyes, kidnapping him, and severely beating him. Deputies say Bermudez also told them he buried Reyes in a shallow grave and set fire to his truck.

    The Riverview man whose body was found over the weekend after he disappeared late last month was ambushed, robbed, and beaten and later buried alive, according to an arrest report.

    The affidavit detailing the murder case against Javier Bermudez also suggests that several other people participated in the killing of Octavio Reyes, but that an investigation to identify those responsible remains ongoing...

    The Hillsborough County medical examiner's office determined Reyes' cause of death to be suffocation, according to the report.

    Hillsborough deputies today arrested 17-year-old Adam Regino, of 10413 Ray Street St. in Gibsonton. Regino is being held in the Hillsborough County Jail on unrelated violation of probation charges, but he will be charged in connection to Reyes’ homicide tonight, the sheriff’s office said.
    In a news release, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Larry McKinnon said detectives are “continuing to work around the clock and are confident that all those who were involved in this homicide will be brought to justice.”

    Details emerge in case of man buried alive in Ruskin
    GIBSONTON — Late on Aug. 30, Adam Regino sat behind the wheel of a truck that bounded south through Hillsborough County. In the rear seat was Javier Bermudez. A third man sat in the passenger seat. In the back of the pickup, lying under a bed cover, was the truck's owner, Octavio Reyes. His legs and arms were bound. From inside the cab, the three could hear him trying to kick his way out. As he banged against the bed cover, they turned up the volume on the radio. Not long after, Reyes was dragged from the truck and thrown in a foot-deep hole along the banks of the Little Manatee River in Ruskin. He was buried alive.
    Only Bermudez and Adam Regino have been charged in Reyes' death. Regino's arrest affidavit indicates that detectives believe others were involved, but it does not say who. The investigation is ongoing.
