War on Crime Radio “No Body Murders” Episode You Don’t Want to Miss!


Wednesday night, War on Crime Radio with special co-host, domestic violence expert/author Susan Murphy-Milano, had a very informative and insightful live show with special guest and “No Body Prosecution” expert attorney Thomas A. DiBiase. For over 12 years, Tad worked as Assistant United States Attorney in the District of Columbia and prosecuted homicide cases for most of those years. The mysterious cases of Stacy Peterson, Lilly Aramburo, and Trenton Duckett were discussed.

Tad DiBiase offered his professional opinion and advice concerning Lilly’s disappearance. He agrees, that police should have zeroed in on Christen Pacheco (her boyfriend & last person to see her alive) from the very beginning. He says that women don’t just leave their children behind, even women with history of not treating their children very well. He says it’s simply inexcusable that over a year later, Lilly’s case is still being treated as a missing person. Miami Dade Police say they are operating as if she’s still alive until they have evidence proving that she’s not. That is a huge mistake, according to Tad. He says investigators need to face reality.

But don’t take my word for it. Please listen for yourself, I’ve included the audio below. Take a listen and tell me what you think.

Help find Lilly. Make a phone call to the US State Attorneys Office in Miami and politely ask them to investigate the possible homicide of Lilly Aramburo. It only takes a minute. The phone number for the State Attorney’s Office in Miami is 305-961-9001. Also, please contact Attorney General Bill McCollum Office, the Contact Person is Sandi Copes at (850) 245-0150. Or consider emailing the Miami Herald and asking that they look into Lilly’s case.

Missing Mother, Lilly Aramburo – Son is Almost Two!

Lilly Aramburo Texas Equusearch FlyerImage by seoyogini via Flickr

Originally uploaded by seoyogini

Next month, Lilly’s little boy turns two. This little boy is the spitting image of his mother. I wonder what it must be like for him, living without her.

Seems like just the other day, I got the phone call from David, his father, telling me Lilly was having the baby. I got ready as fast as I possibly could, jumped in my car and drove to from my apartment in Miami Beach to Hollywood to witness the baby’s birth.

So much has changed since then. That precious newborn is a toddler now, exploring the world around him. Without his mom. And without his dad. That’s “impermanence” for you.

And so it deeply saddens me to realize this child will grow up without both parents. But despite it all, he’s always happy, very bright and full of life. His grandmother has given so much love and attention.

Can you please help find his mom?

Help spread the news of this missing mother from Miami. There are many ways to help.

Email me, if you’re interested. Or leave a comment on the blog. And I’ll get right back to you.

Happy Birthday, sweet baby! May you always be joyous & happy and free from suffering!

Join us on Flickr, Care2, Friendfeed, and Check out the Picture of Lilly’s Back Tattoo!

Thank you, Detective Mancha from Miami Dade Police Department, for providing us with this picture of Lilly’s back tattoo. This is the only known picture of it and we are extremely thankful to Det. Mancha for providing it to us.

Anyone with information should immediately contact MDPD at 305-418-7245.

I’ve used many social networking sites to assist me in my mission of finding Lilly and raising awareness for missing persons. If you have a loved one that’s missing, you are invited to join my group on Flickr. The group is focused on missing persons in the United States. Every member is encouraged to upload pictures of missing loved ones (as long as they disappeared within the US). This is a good idea in several aspects. Many people use Flickr. And it’s an effective way of raising awareness for the missing.
Join my room in Friendfeed. Members post links to pictures, articles, anything that has to do with missing persons. If you’re a social media lover, be sure to join us on various sites across the web. Care2.com. And a community on Mixx.com.
Add Lilly as a friend on myspace and join the group on Facebook and join the cause on Facebook. These are a just few of the ones I use. I’ll write an entire post about this in more detail in the near future.

Lilly Aramburo Missing Miami Mother – MIA

I absolutely ADORE this picture. This is how I remember my friend. Smiling, laughing, enjoying the moment.

Lilly vanished, without a trace, on June 1, 2007. Life hasn’t been the same. Her mother lives in constant agony, waiting for her daughter’s return. Having to raise her grandson under such difficult circumstances is not an easy task. With each day, Lilly’s son slowly loses precious memories of his mother. He was 9 months old, last time he saw her smiling face and was held in her warm embrace.

We are asking the community for help – Do you know someone called EJ in Miami? Probably hung out in Coconut Grove by the Pier or Peacock Park and Churchill’s Pub in Little Haiti. Do you know Christen Pacheco?

Anyone with info should immediately contact Miami Dade Police – Detective Aaron Mancha at 305-418-7245 or 305-471-8477. You can remain completely anonymous. Or leave a comment on this blog.

To Lilly’s Murderer, Your Conscious Must be KILLING You!

Another newly acquired picture of Lilly courtesy of Miami Dade Police Department. With every new picture, sadness tends to overcome me. And all I’m left with are questions.

Christen Pacheco, the man Lilly was engaged to, was one of the last persons to see her alive. He reported her missing, 24 hours after the fact and before ever checking with family or friends. He tried to make it seem as if her intention was to kill herself. He fabricated a tale about Lilly leaving with bungee cords. If it was truly her intention to hang herself or take her own life, her body would have been found by now. My gut feeling screamed murder. But I am not accusing Christen. Although he never behaved like a man suffering due his fiance’s disappearance and never made any attempts to find her, he is innocent until proven guilty. However, several criminal profilers, including Clint Van Zandt, and others in the criminal justice field, all agree that police should have seen red flags immediately. They should have questioned her fiance thoroughly. Police should have started investigating at that most critical moment! But instead, they assigned her case to a detective (Detective Aaron Mancha) who was on vacation! Lilly’s life was treated as completely inconsequential and meaningless. I often think about why. Was it because she’s not white or well off? Was it negligence or something greater and uglier like Missing White Woman Syndrome?

Why is it that after all this time, Miami residents are still unfamiliar with Lilly’s case? Because her case has not interested the news media at all. How could it make an enduring news impression, even locally, if media is unresponsive and unwilling to report?

After all this time, I believe her little boy and family, deserve answers. Something happened to Lilly. She did NOT willingly walk away from her son and her life. Lilly would never allow so much time to pass without making a phone call or checking on her son. Someone took her from us. And many of us will not rest until she is found and justice is served for Lilly Aramburo.

Here’s a direct statement to her perpetrator: YOUR CONSCIOUS MUST BE KILLING YOU!!!

Miami Police – Nothing Like CSI:Miami or First 48


Recently, I had a conversation with the detective from Lilly’s case. It only took a few weeks of daily messages to his voice mail and emails to him and his superiors inside the Miami Dade Police Department.

I was a little frustrated to say the least but very thankful to have the opportunity to seek help in several aspects in the search for Lilly. And more specifically, I had some questions that needed answers.

In the few weeks in which I waited to speak with MDPD, I managed to not only get two Search and Rescue Teams to volunteer, but I tracked down the owners of the property (where the recent tip said she’d be found) called them and received approval for the search. All we were waiting for was MDPD.

Back to the conversation with detective. After almost 3 weeks, not much had been accomplished on their end. According to him, he was out the previous week and nobody handles his cases while he’s out. Besides, Lilly’s is not his only case (I’ve heard this mantra over and over again). Nevertheless, I was happy to report that we had 2 SAR teams ready to move and all we needed was their approval. That approval never came. What I got instead was a bunch of excuses.

And since then, I can’t help but wonder why the MDPD would not allow two professional Search and Rescue teams from South Florida to help in the search for Lilly? The more I think about it, the less it makes sense.

You would think they would welcome and accept any help that’s offered to them since they’re so tied up with hundreds of missing persons cases. So busy that it’s taken more than 3 weeks to get the ball rolling in order to complete the search at the property where Lilly’s remains might be found. Instead, they insist they are fully prepared. They have cadaver dogs…

After an entire year of neglect to her case, now we must rely on them and them only?

And yet, why has it taken this long? Can it really be that the MDPD are that tied up? That it takes them weeks to simply find out who the property owners are? When it took me less than 20 minutes? Trust me, Miami Dade Police are nothing like what you see on CSI:Miami, more like Reno 911.

Honestly, what is it going to take for police to solve this case? Lilly did NOT willingly abandon her child. She did NOT just vanish!  

Does more blood need to spill?

Can this be the crime scene?? See the pictures!

Susan wrote a great posting about the potential crime scene in Lilly’s disappearance.
Below are the pictures of the property where Lilly might be found. But getting police to follow up on this lead is a different story. As usual, it’s not their priority. For those that are not following the case, Lilly was last seen at her fiance; Christen Pacheco’s apartment on
June 1, 2007. She’s never been seen or heard from ever again. Christen reported Lilly missing 24 hours later, before calling her mother or family members & friends. According to his story, she walked out of his apartment at 2am in pajamas to pick flowers and took a bungee cord with her.

In honor of Lilly ~ “Lilly My One and Only”

Lilly loves this song. We used to listen to it together in my apartment in Miami Beach. That was before everything changed and she became engaged to Christen Pacheco. 
I saw the video recently and it overwhelmed me with sadness, made me cry for a little bit. I sat here on my computer remembering sweet Lilly and our times together. Thinking about her sense of humor, her laugh, her love for animals. I wanted to share it with all of you.
Please, take a moment to watch the video. The song is called “Lilly, my one and only” by Smashing Pumpkins.

1st Annual Safety Awareness Event & Candlelight Vigil in honor of Lilly Aramburo

On Sunday, June 1st, 2008, Justice in Miami, Subliminal Pixels Lab and PK Graphics, sponsored a community safety event on the 1 year anniversary of Lilly Aramburo’s disappearance. The event was a success!

We listened to live music courtesy of Power 96. Safety information and ID kits were handed out to parents and children. Guests signed in to receive their ribbon and candle. We had the beautiful “Lilly” line of hats and headbands, for sale. They were designed and donated courtesy of Maggie’s Rose. You can see my girls and Havanna in the video wearing their hats. Everyone had something nice to say about them! If you’d like more information on the “Lilly” line, please feel free to go to the Maggie’s Rose website or contact us.

The butterfly ceremony/meditation was amazing. You could see the butterflies landing on our fingers and hands and the prayer flags in the background, blowing in the wind, releasing prayers for Lilly and all beings. A poem was read by Renea, Maya Angelou’s “Touched by an Angel”. And I read an excerpt from The Way of the Boddhisattva by Shantideva. We have a video clip of that below.

As a sign of solidarity with families of missing loved ones everywhere, Pastor Tony Isaacs led a special prayer. Our intention was that as each individual candle was added to the whole, it showed victims and their loved ones that there is a ray of hope.

All of the efforts were dedicated in honor of missing persons and victims everywhere, specifically, Lilly Aramburo, Heather “Kitty” Riggio, and Jennifer Kesse. Our aspiration is that they receive justice and the attention they deserve.

We’d like to extend a special thank you to our volunteers, (in no special order) Vivian, Renea, Sara, Delilah, Jamie, Hope Movement, the volunteers from Christ Fellowship, Pastor Tony Isaacs and all those who desire not to be mentioned (you know who you are!!) Thank you to our internet activists, our bloggers and friends in demanding justice…
And last but not least, a big hug and my sincere thanks to Bagua

THANK YOU! Your love and support helps us get through these difficult times. We stand with you in pride and gratitude. May you always live in truth and peace.

Although we had media present, only one channel and it’s affiliate played it on the news. Here is that clip from the vigil http://cbs4.com/video/?id=55873@wfor.dayport.com

Messege from Lucely, Lilly’s mom

“Thank you for your support and encouragement that you brought to Lilly’s family and friends at the candle vigil. Also thank you to the people that could not be present but were involved in one way or another and who’s efforts were appreciated, you truly touched our hearts. Results have already been brought forward thanks to your passionate work and dedication. This is one step closer to finding Lilly and to bring her home.

God bless you and thank you again.”

Memo To Miami Homicide Detectives


The latest post about Lilly’s disappearance and the Miami Dade Police Department by Susan Murphy Milano on War on Crime.

Today, a meeting took place with Detective Mancha, Miami Police Department who is assigned to the missing person case of Lilly Aramburo.

I mean no respect to the men and women with the Miami Police Department who work around the clock to fight and solve crime on the street of Miami. I decided to post a memo regarding Lilly Aramburo.

TO: Detective A mancha:

FROM: Susan Murphy Milano

RE: Lilly Aramburo

Allow me to assist you in your job pertaining to the investigation into the disappearance of
Lilly, a woman and mother, who did not just “vanish” !

In your meeting today with Lilly’s family you stated the need for the vehicle identification number for the 2005 Black SUV Escalade owned by one Christian Pacheco. I believe that is your responsibility to contact the Florida departments of motor vehicles and obtain that number. Or obtain the various traffic violations of Christian Pacheco between November of 2006 through May of 2007 and it will provide you with that vehicle number.

Or you can check the following vehicle tags here are the numbers:

Florida Tag # TZ192G
Florida Tag # 45988L

One of the above vehicle tags will provide you with the vin number you need.

The 2005 Escalade also had a GPS system in the car. With the vin number you can contact the folks at Onstar and have them trace the last known area this car was in. And just maybe you will find it and locate Lilly Aramburo. Records indicate Christen Pacheco did not total his SUV. He did not make an insurance claim on this vehicle. He left shortly after
filling a missing persons report that sat on someone’s desk. A few days later he told people he was in an accident and totaled the car. Totally false!

Charge card records between 5/2/07 through 6/11/07 may provide important information.
The charge card records will help you with the time line.

In addition, the couple filed for a marriage license on 4/25/2007. Christen Pacheco was the last person to see Lilly Aramburo alive. Perhaps go to a judge and obtain a search warrant at head over to Christen Pacheco’s residence and you just might find important blood evidence on the carpet and in various spots throughout the condo. Lilly’s blood type can be checked against hospital records and records from St. Luke’s rehab center.

I am available to assist you any way possible. There are red flags all over this case. And they point in only one single direction. My email address is contact@movingoutmovingon.com
###############

Folks we need your assistance Miami Police Department appears busy these days taping episodes for the crime show the first “48”. This case is not that cold to investigate and make an arrest.

Please help us by emailing the following folks in outrage for not investigating the death of Lilly Aramburo.

GOVERNOR CHARLIE CRIST: HELP US FIND LILLY ARAMBURO!

Please read the latest story discussing Lilly’s case below. Please go to the link on the title of this post. Visit the site and COMMENT,COMMENT, COMMENT!! We need everyone to COMMENT, PLEASE. Additionally, please email Governor Charlie Crist. Ask him to help bring our Lilly home!

Please listen to the radio show. According to former FBI/Criminal Profiler, Clint Van Zandt, “there are interesting parallels to the Stepha Henry Case (a college graduate who disappeared in May) and took local authorities in Miami to the first of the year to get their investigation together.” He goes on to say that it’s WRONG that Lilly’s case is not listed in the NCIC database. He adds “Circumstances are SUSPICIOUS enough that this should raise her as a higher profile potential victim on the radar scope of police”

On April 25, 2007, Our investigation into the Missing Miami Mother Lilly Aramburo and her fiance, Christen Pacheco, found the couple applied for a marriage license on April 25, 2007. Approximately thirty-six days later, Lilly Aramburo, vanished. See details below:

Application Number: (Year-Number)2007-008528
Status:NOT RETURNED*
Application Date:APR-25-2007
Groom Name: (First Middle Last)CHRISTEN ROBERT PACHECO
Birth Date:JAN-25-1975
Birth Place:NEW YORK
Groom Reside, City:MIAMI
County:MIAMI DADE
State or Foreign Country:FLORIDA
Bride Name: (First Middle Last / Maiden)LUCELY ARAMBURO
Birth Date:NOV-16-1983
Birth Place:CALIFORNIA
Bride Reside, City:MIAMI
County:MIAMI DADE
State or Foreign Country:FLORIDA

Approximately thirty-six days later, Lilly Aramburo, vanished. The last person(s) to see her alive was Miami Businessman, Christen Pacheco and a long time friend by the name of Kelly Rae Starling. Both say that Lilly left her loving future at two in the morning in her pajama’s to go and pick flowers. She had no shoes or slippers on her feet, she left her purse and cell phone in the home she and Christen Pacheco shared. Most of all, she left her one year old son.
The explanation from Christen Pacheco who also heads up a not for profit agency in the State of Florida called Kidz Comfort Zone, Inc., knows what happened that night.
Police have yet to investigate the disappearance of this Miami Mother, Lilly Aramburo. On June 2, 2008 it will be one year since Lilly vanished.
The police have ignored the families pleas to investigate this case, it’s time to take it to Governor Charlie Crist.
I am asking that you take a moment and email the Governor of Florida.
Copy and paste this post and send it to: Charlie.Crist@myflorida.com
And ask him to help us bring Lilly Aramburo home!
If you have any information concerning this case, please contact:
