OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – The suspect arrested in connection with the death of a missing St. Cloud mother whose dismembered remains were later found on his property incriminated his son, the victim’s estranged husband who is also facing charges, in a letter he wrote from jail.
That jailhouse letter was included among more than 1,100 pages of documents released Tuesday by the State Attorney’s Office that detail how the investigation into 33-year-old Nicole Montalvo’s disappearance and later her death unfolded.
A strained relationship
Records show that before her death, Montalvo complained about the treatment she received from Otero-Rivera and his family. In Facebook messages to a friend days before her death, she spoke of someone hacking her account and blocking several men.
“He will never leave me alone,” Montalvo wrote on Oct. 19, 2019. “Unless I go.”
She spoke of the family watching the son she shared with Otero-Rivera and said they called her a bad mother because she had to work.
“I hate how they make me feel,” she wrote.
