Authorities in Florida believe they have found the body of missing 19-year-old college student Miya Marcano.

The body was discovered at 10:45 a.m. in a wooded area on Saturday, Orange County Sheriff John Mina announced at a press conference.

Miya Marcano was last seen on September 24 at Arden Villas apartment complex where she lived and worked in Orlando, Florida.

"We can't imagine the pain, the anguish, that Miya's parents, family, loved ones, the friends and really our entire community have gone through and will continue to go through," Mina said Saturday at a press conference. "On behalf of the men and women in the Orange County Sheriff's Office, we offer our deepest condolences."

The man suspected of Miya's murder, Armando Manuel Caballero, 27, killed himself in his apartment at a Seminole County apartment complex. His body was found on Sept. 28, days after he was questioned by police and cleared as a suspect.

Caballero worked as a janitor at Arden Villas apartments since June.

Police say Caballero was romantically interested in Miya, and she repeatedly rejected his advances.

Miya worked in the leasing office at the apartment complex. Caballero used a master key fob to enter her apartment about 30 minutes before her shift ended at 5 pm.

An arrest warrant was issued for Caballero after the complex manager told authorities he entered Miya's apartment that day without permission.

Her apartment showed signs of a struggle. There was blood on her pillow and the front door was barricaded from the inside.

Miya, a student at Valencia College in Orlando, was scheduled to fly home to Fort Lauderdale to visit her parents the day she went missing.

The petite college student attended Valencia University near the apartment complex. Police say foul play is suspected in her disappearance.

Her apartment showed signs of a struggle and the front door was barricaded from the inside.

Miya went missing hours before she was scheduled to fly to Fort Lauderdale to visit her parents.

An arrest warrant was issued after the complex manager told authorities that Caballero entered Miya's apartment that day without permission.

Marcano's grandmother, Joysue Thompson, told WESH 2 News that Miya was "the family's princess." She said the family believes she's alive and they just want her brought home safe.

"All we ask you is help us bring Miya home. Bring her home safe, just drop her off and let us know where she is and we'll pick her up – just bring her home."

"Our deputies and investigators are working around the clock to find 19-year-old Miya Marcano," Sheriff Mina said in a statement on Facebook.

John McAfee had a suicide note in his pocket when he was found dead in his prison cell in Spain last week.

McAfee's death came hours after a court ruled he would be extradited to the U.S. to face federal charges of income tax evasion and wire fraud.

The note was found after the 75-year-old software designer hanged himself in his cell in Barcelona on Wednesday.

However, his widow Janice McAfee said her husband was not suicidal and would not have taken his own life.

Janice McAfee, 38, is demanding a "thorough investigation" into his death, saying her husband did not appear suicidal when they last spoke.

"His last words to me were: 'I love you and I will call you in the evening', those words are not words of someone who is suicidal," she told reporters.

She fought back tears as she spoke with reporters outside the walls of the Brians 2 penitentiary northwest of Barcelona where she recovered her late husband's belongings.

"I don't believe he did this, I will get answers," she said.

McAfee also confirmed he wasn't suicidal in a tweet last year.

"I am content in here. I have friends. The food is good. All is well. Know that if I hang myself, a la Epstein, it will be no fault of mine," McAfee tweeted on October 15.

Janice, a former prostitute, met John in Miami after he solicited her services in 2012. They got married the following year.

John McAfee was arrested at the Barcelona airport in October 2020 on an outstanding warrant issued by prosecutors in Tennessee.

Prosecutors were seeking up to three decades of imprisonment for allegedly evading more than $4 million in taxes.

McAfee is best known for designing the award-winning antivirus software that was used by 80% of Fortune 100 companies worldwide. He later sold the rights to Intel for $100 million.

The founder of antivirus software company McAfee reportedly committed suicide in his cell at a Spanish prison.

John McAfee took his own life in a prison cell in Barcelona on Wednesday, hours after his extradition to the U.S. was approved.

McAfee, a multi-millionaire, was accused of income tax evasion by the IRS.

The tech innovator died hours after the Spanish High Court approved his removal to the United States, the Associated Press reported.

McAfee was arrested at Barcelona airport in October 2020. He fled there from the U.S. to avoid income tax evasion charges.

McAfee reportedly told Spanish authorities he was being targeted for political reasons.

The AP reports he still had the opportunity to appeal the Spanish High Court's decision to deport him.

McAfee founded the software company in 1987, and the company was purchased by Intel in February 2011.

In 2014 at a convention in Las Vegas, Intel said it was phasing out the McAfee name and replacing it with "Intel Security Group."

McAfee released a drug-fueled video in which he uninstalled McAfee from a computer and claimed to have the ability to block NSA surveillance.

He told the BBC he was grateful that he was no longer associated with "the worst software on the planet."

Loaded, who was born Dashawn Maurice Robertson, wrote a suicide note on his final Instagram Stories post:

"Dear most high, Please forgive me for my shortcomings and all of the times I've fell short of making you proud and being appreciative of all the blessings that have been put in my life.

"Sometimes the lines are blurred between being solid and being heartless. I want to thank you for how far I've come and the people you've put in my life to keep me grounded through everything and I love every single one of those people that are genuinely for me. I ask for entrance into your kingdom thru all of my mistakes. I know you love all of your children and I'm ready for my heart and soul to Join you."

Lil Loaded was facing a manslaughter charge following the murder of his friend, 18-year-old Khalil Walker.

He was initially arrested on suspicion of murder last year, but was indicted in February.

Following the viral hit, Loaded signed with Epic Records. "6locc 6a6y" was awarded a gold certification by the Recording Industry Association of America just last week.

Loaded posted about his achievement on Instagram four days ago, insisting he had the "dopest fanbase on earth".

He wrote: "6LOCC 6A6Y Certified Gold. Who runnin dis s**t like me. young N***a S**t dopest fanbase on earth."

Stanley Gabart, whose production company worked with Epic Records, said: "This kid was on a great path. He was struggling with some things we wish we would've known about, wish we could've intervened."

The tragic suicides of two Black teenagers prompted calls for more mental health services in one of the most neglected communities.

16-year-old Mikayla Miller (right) was found hanged from a tree just steps away from her apartment in Hopkinton, Massachusetts.

Mikayla's death touched off rumors that she was "jumped" by 4 white teens -- two boys and two girls -- who then carried her body into a wooded area and lynched her.

Just hours before she died on April 18, Mikayla fought with a group of white teens, including her ex-girlfriend, in the clubhouse of her apartment complex.

She suffered a bloodied lip, police said. The clubhouse showed signs of damage. Hours later, Mikayla walked into the woods and hanged herself with her belt.

Her family said Mikayla was a member of the LGBT community.

State law enforcement officials initially ruled her death a suicide. But pressure from her mother, Calvina Strothers, and community activists prompted police to take a closer look at the evidence.

Tracking her steps on her iPhone's Health app, investigators discovered she walked about 1,316 steps -- roughly the distance from the complex into the woods where her body was found the next morning.

Additionally police traced the GPS signals of the teens she fought with. None were in the woods that night.

"As to who else may have been in the woods or that area on Sunday, we do not have any information as to that," said Middlesex district attorney Marian Ryan.

Ryan doesn't believe Mikayla's death was the result of foul play.

A week later, Saniyya Dennis, a 19-year-old Buffalo State sophomore (pictured), went missing from her dorm room.

Saniyya's father, former Dipset rapper 40 Cal (Calvin Byrd), offered $10,000 for information on his missing daughter.

At an afternoon press conference on Thursday, police said Saniyya apparently jumped to her death from Niagara Falls after calling an ex-boyfriend 66 times.

A text she sent to her ex read: "I'm not feeling good - I think I'm going to kill myself."

Surveillance video from Saniyya's dorm in her final hours on April 24 showed Saniyya throwing personal items into a garbage can.

Police retrieved the discarded items and concluded that she didn't plan to return to her dorm room.

Hours later, she took a bus to Goat Island where she made a 45 minute phone call to a male friend. The male friend later told police he thought he'd convinced her not to take her own life.

Saniyya sent a text message to her mom telling her she loved her. Her cell phone pinged a tower close to the edge of Niagara Falls.

At 1:22 a.m. she sent her friend a final text message, assuring him she was back on the bus.

A minute later her phone left the cell phone network -- an indication that she either turned the phone off or it was destroyed.

"It appears that this poor girl took her own life," said Erie County DA John Flynn at a press conference on Thursday.

Flynn said her body may never be found because it is likely wedged in jagged rocks below.

The model girlfriend of Bayern Munich soccer star Jerome Boateng was found dead in her Berlin, Germany apartment, officials say.

Police are investigating Kasia Lenhardt's death as suspicion of suicide.

A police spokesman said: "Yesterday at around 8.30 pm there was a police operation in Charlottenburg on suspicion of suicide. A lifeless person was found in the home. There are no indications of third-party involvement."
 

Kasia, who had Jerome's name tattooed on her torso, died a week after a nasty public split from the soccer superstar. The couple dated for 15 months before they broke up, according to The Sun newspaper.

Jerome parted ways with the 25-year-old model after she wrecked his car in January, resulting in the car being written off as a total loss.

Her blood alcohol level was above the legal limit.

In a statement after the breakup, Jerome stated Kasia "destroyed" his relationship with his ex-girlfriend Rebecca Silvera, the mother of his children.

He said it was time to "draw a line" and "apologize to everyone I've hurt" including Rebecca and their children.

"Kasia became my girlfriend by destroying the relationship with my ex-girlfriend Rebecca and my family and blackmailed me," he wrote.

But Kasia took to social media to say she dumped him because of the World Cup winner's "lies and constant infidelity".

"Now is where you draw the line. Enough," she wrote in a cryptic post on Instagram. She also referred to the pro athlete as "the devil" and promised to "speak up" and "fight back".
 

Calling Kasia's messages "manipulative", Rebecca told RTL news outlet: "Kasia destroyed my family for her own benefit. I'm not going to let her destroy Jerome too. I'm not going to let her play the victim. She's done enough damage."

The model leaves behind a son, Noah, from a previous relationship. Kasia is best known as a contestant on "Germany's Next Top Model" in 2012.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death among young people.

Busta Rhymes paid tribute to his late friend and collaborator MF DOOM as "a God MC and incredible human being".

The rap legend - whose real name was Daniel Dumile - passed away on October 31, according to a statement by his wife Jasmine on December 31.

DOOM, aka Zev Love X, Metalface and King Geedorah, worked with Busta frequently since their 1991 track "Nitty Gritty Remix" with the former's group KMD.

Busta admitted he is struggling to come to terms with the devastating loss of the beloved rapper - who was just 49.

Alongside a video of their 2016 track "In The Streets" - which also featured The Chicago Kid - Busta began his lengthy post on Instagram: "Rest easy on levels that words can't describe @MFDOOM."

He continued:

"It has taken me days to come terms with this enough to type about it and I still can't believe it or come to terms with it. I'm completely f**ked up by the loss of this God MC & incredible human being!! Over 30 years of friendship & brotherhood almighty!! I wanted to believe this was another elaborate scheme by the great Whodini MF DOOM himself but this time I have received the confirmations that it wasn't."

On DOOM's legacy, Busta added: "This has meant something to our culture that no other MC has because he figured out something that none of us before him and that was to be completely free!!!"
