VERO BEACH, Florida – At approximately 7:45 a.m., Indian River County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a home in the 8100 block of 102nd Avenue in Vero Lake Estates.

A 45-year-old female, Vicky Torres, was found dead inside the home. Preliminary evidence has led detectives to believe that her husband, Pedro Torres, killed her before fleeing to South Florida.

A B.O.L.O. (Be On the Look Out) has been issued for Pedro Torres who is believed to be driving a gray Nissan two door 350Z car bearing Florida tag EGIX72.

Torres is known to frequent Broward County and is believed to be somewhere in that area.

“Tragically, we have experienced another domestic violence homicide in our county. We know that domestic violence is a crime that spans all socioeconomic boundaries. We are working with our partners in South Florida to locate and apprehend Pedro Torres so he can be held accountable for this crime,” Indian River County Sheriff Deryl Loar stated.

The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office partners with SafeSpace Inc., the only certified domestic violence shelter and outreach organization on the Treasure Coast.

If you or someone you know is living in a domestic violence situation, we encourage you to call 1-800-500-1119. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Pedro Torres should call 9-1-1 immediately.

Torres is believed to be armed and should be considered as dangerous.
