Appeal to Miami Residents For Info in the Possible Homicide of Lilly Aramburo

In 6 months, it will mark the 2nd year anniversary since Lilly Aramburo was last seen by family and friends. The night was June 1, 2007, at approximately 2am. She walked out of her live-in boyfriend’s condo after a heated argument and has never been seen alive since.

Lilly’s family is asking the public for help. If you know anything at all or have information regarding the disappearance of Lucely “Lilly” Aramburo, Lilly’s mother, family and friends urge you to contact Miami Dade Police at 305-418-7200 or Crime Stoppers at (305)471-8477. (You can get a cash reward of up to $1000!) It offers complete anonymity. Lilly may have walked to the bus stop or to the Metrorail Station which is very near to Dadeland Mall. She may have traveled to the Coconut Grove area.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO LILLY?

MISSING Lilly Aramburo

Chances are you’ve probably never met Lilly but if you did, you would understand why we’re so determined to find her. Lilly was a girl of peace, a young mother who loved her baby boy very much. She was a humble person and good friend who touched everyone she met with her beautiful smile. She had the energy of a small child. It is a shame that this had to happen. And that her disappearance has remained unnoticed, while the media arbitrarily picks and chooses who they find important.

She loved music, and although she loved rock, oldies were secretly her favorite songs. She loved to read and write in her journals, but refused to learn computers. She was a very simple girl, who shopped at vintage stores, and hardly ever wore much make up. The term earth girl, comes to mind when I think of her. And pixie, as well. People would often confuse her with being a teenager because she looked so damn young. Lily was tough as steel, both emotionally and physically. Once she fell off a 2nd story building at the University of Miami campus. She went to the hospital and walked out, took the brace off and kept going, because she had to be at work the next day.

When she was pregnant with her son (now 2 years old), she glowed. It was the most amazing time in her life. The loveliest I had ever seen her. Her skin looked a golden olive, and her almond shaped eyes, glistened. I could see life in her. And she was truly happy and hopeful, looking forward to the birth of her son.

I thought she would make it. She began taking prenatal yoga, went back to being a vegetarian, and was dedicated to meditating and praying a lot. We had no idea of what was to come. Almost 2 years later, and we’re still awaiting answers. Every day Lilly’s mother wakes up thinking about Lilly and what could have been. It must be so painful for her to raise her grandson, Lilly’s 2 year old son, while praying for the day when Lilly is found and finally put to rest.

We have reason to believe Lilly is a victim of homicide but many questions remain unanswered. And that is why we’re asking for your help.

We’re currently trying to piece together Lilly’s last movements. Anyone with information which could assist police with their investigations should immediately contact Miami Dade Police at 305-418-7200 or Crime Stoppers at (305)471-8477.

Lily’s case has received very little media coverage. So far, the only article published about Lilly’s disappearance was in the Miami New Times last September. As you can see, Nancy Grace was kind enough to feature a Case Alert about Lilly, as well. Can you help us get media coverage for Lilly? Contact Nancy Grace and ask her to investigate Lilly’s possible homicide. We’d like Lilly to be featured on local media stations in Miami. Please let us know if you can help with this. Drop me a line or leave a comment on this post.

Lilly’s family and friends are grateful for your prayers and continued support. Let’s bring resolution to this grieving family.

Prayers for Missing Mother Lilly Aramburo

True peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice. Martin Luther King, Jr

I spent the day yesterday with my favorite boy in the world…Lilly Aramburo’s 2 year old son, Palden:-) Lilly’s mother, Lucely, invited me over to their new place, along with a few of Lilly’s old friends from school. I had a lovely time. It was amazing to see how much her little boy has learned to talk. He took me by the hand and showed me his room and all his toys. He walked me over to a chest, lifted the top and showed me what was inside…Lilly’s boots and shoes…and he said “gone…gone”. He broke my heart in two. Although, he was a baby when he last saw his mother, Lilly, (it seems to me) her memory is still very much alive in his mind.

The following prayer is dedicated to Lilly and all missing loved ones. May they be in peace, free from all harm and suffering. May they be found and may justice prevail.

Prayer to Find What Is Lost
St. Anthony, when you prayed, your stolen book of prayers was given back to you. Pray now for all of us who have lost things precious and dear. Pray for all who have lost faith, hope or the friendship of God. Pray for us who have lost friends or relatives by death. Pray for all who have lost peace of mind or spirit. Pray that we may be given new hope, new faith, new love. Pray that lost things, needful and helpful to us, may be returned to our keeping. Or, if we must continue in our loss, pray that we may be given Christ’s comfort and peace.

Amen.

Yet Another Holiday Without Lilly – An Update

This will be our 2nd holiday without Lilly Aramburo. The feeling of great loss and grieving hasn’t stopped since her disappearance but Christmas is especially arduous. Emotions are raw. Most of Lily’s family is processing through this the same way we would with a death, except there’s no closure because Lilly’s body has not been found.

In the midst of all this suffering, there has been some progress though. Lilly’s mother, Lucely, requested a meeting with Captain Janna L. Bolinger-Heller from Miami Dade Police Department, she kindly agreed. Lucely, Joe Carrillo (private investigator), and I met with the Captain and Lieutenant Normando Gregorisch yesterday. It was our first time meeting Captain Heller in person, as well as Lieutenant Gregorisch. I must say, it was a very positive meeting. Obviously, I can’t disclose any details since it involves an open investigation. The last thing I want is to compromise the case and let violent criminals get away with murdering my friend. If all goes well, and everyone keeps to their word, I have no doubt…the truth will come out and this case will finally be transferred to homicide.

Please light a candle and say a prayer for Lilly and her family.
