Justice for Lily Hunger Strike in Miami

Monday, November 16, 2009 would have been my best friend, Lilly Aramburo’s 26 birthday. Lily has been missing since June 2, 2007. Her plight has been featured on Nancy Grace and Americas Most Wanted.

Lily disappeared from the apartment of her heroin addicted boyfriend in the Dadeland area. Since then, her mother Lucely and I have launched an exhaustive search for her only to become disillusioned and extremely frustrated with the lack of effort of the Miami Dade Police Department.

Police failed to locate two witnesses that were present the night she disappeared. We’ve been working with private investigator Joe Carrillo and his team for over a year locating the two witnesses within days. A convicted killer has been identified by the investigators as a person of interest in her disappearance. After four meetings with the missing persons detectives, a convicted killer who served time for murder has yet to be interviewed even though identified and located by the private investigator. Why? Police refuse to answer the why.

Lily’s mother and I desperately need to bring attention to her disappearance and want answers from the Miami Dade Police Department. We’re both commencing a hunger strike Monday at 9:00 AM in front of the Miami Dade Government Center until we get answers.

Location: Government Center
111 NW 1 Street
Miami, Fl.

We’d like to thank all of you for supporting us in our fight to find Lily and for keeping Lily in your hearts and minds. PLEASE do not stop passing on this blog to all you know! You can also help support the search for Lily by donating to Lily’s reward fund or by purchasing a T-Shirt.

Anyone with information pertaining to the disappearance of Lily Aramburo is urged to contact Private Investigator Joe Carrillo at 305-926-3110 or call Miami Dade Police at 305-418-7200.


Missing mother Lily Aramburo on America’s Most Wanted!

Young Mom Lily Aramburo Disappears


In the early hours of June 2, 2007,  Lilly Aramburo left her boyfriend’s apartment, never to be seen again. As her family and friends have told us, she would never leave her baby son behind on her own free will.

Now, they have turned to America’s Most Wanted for help.

Lilly is described as friendly and always willing to listen and help a friend in need. A blog has been started, called Justice in Miami, to raise awareness about her case.

At 22, she was not without problems. She struggled with drugs, and may have found herself in a situation where people she knew did her harm.

Private Eye Working To Find Lilly

Lilly’s friends are desperate for answers in her disappearance.

The quiet residential street in Miami where she lived turned different at night, and people are afraid to talk about what they see and what they know.

Law enforcement sources say they know the last place she was seen alive, a private home on the street.

Those who love her have great concerns about her not being alive when she left that house.

A South Florida private investigator, Joe Carrillo, has received some great tips that have been passed on to Miami law enforcement.

Those that know Lilly think some people might be afraid to come forward.  Lilly’s loved ones want to know what may have been done to her.

Lilly Aramburo, Gone but not Forgotten

Gone Without a Trace

The Disappearance of South Florida mother, Lucely “Lily” Aramburo has left her family and friends devastated. Although it’s been almost 2 years, since she’s been gone, she is not forgotten. Lilly was a very good friend. I miss her dearly.

Lilly Aramburo was 23 when she disappeared in June 2007.  She was last seen leaving her boyfriend’s condo, located in the Kendall area of Miami, Florida. Lilly’s boyfriend called her family the next evening at 2am after reporting her missing to Miami Dade Police. There are a lot of questions and very few answers.  Needless to say, Lilly’s case remains unsolved.

A candlelight vigil and silent march is being planned for the 2nd year anniversary of Lilly’s disappearance. It will take place at the end of May in Coconut Grove, Florida.  I will keep you updated as more info becomes available.

If you live in the South Florida area,  consider showing your support by attending the vigil and silent march.  If you use Facebook, please RSVP here.

I just came upon this article in the Miami Herald and wanted to share it with you. I can’t imagine the suffering this little girl’s family has had to endure. If anyone knows anything about the 1987 murder of 3-year-old Julie Magliulo in North Lauderdale, please do the right thing and contact the FBI at 1-800-225-5324.

Broward child’s 1987 murder to be reopened
The Broward Sheriff’s Office and the FBI plan Wednesday morning to announce the reopening of the late 1980s case of a 3-year-old girl found killed in West Broward.
On June 8, 1987, Julie Magliulo walked outside her family’s home near North Lauderdale. Her parents never saw her alive again.
Her skeleton was found about 10 months later, dumped about 20 miles away in what then was a barren swampland, and now is the city of Weston.
Her disappearance was selected as part of an initiative by the FBI’s Crimes Against Children Unit, which includes Child Abduction Rape Deployment Teams, FBI spokeswoman Judy Orihuela said Tuesday.
”This was one of the five that was picked from around the country,” Orihuela said.
The FBI has offered a reward of up to $25,000 for information that leads to an arrest and conviction. Those with information are asked to call 1-800-225-5324.
