Orange County FL March 13 2018 Orange County Sheriff’s Office deputies made an unexpected discovery when they responded to a burglary at an Orlando middle school Sunday.
The suspect was wanted in the murder of his estranged wife in Kissimmee last week.
Alex Olivencia-Alvarado was taken into custody after deputies responded to Meadow Woods Middle School at 3 p.m., Orange sheriff’s spokeswoman Ingrid Tejada-Monforte said. He had a 9mm handgun at the time, Tejada-Monforte said.
Osceola County deputies were contacted and took Olivencia-Alvarado, 35, into custody, a news release said. He was booked into the Osceola County Jail in connection with the death of Michelle Rodriguez-Laracuente, who died of a gunshot wound on March 5 at a residence on the 200 block of Manoel Silva Street.
Armed burglary charges against Olivencia-Alvarado are pending.
The school was searched and secured, Tejada-Monforte said.
The investigation continues.
