OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – GPS data helped deputies pinpoint who buried the dismembered body of a St. Cloud mother who had been reported missing, according to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office.

On Thursday, officials released an arrest affidavit for Angel Luis Rivera that reveals new details about the death of Nicole Montalvo.

According to the document, the investigation began on Oct. 23 after Montalvo’s friends and family reported her missing. They said she hadn’t been in contact with them since Oct. 21 and hadn’t showed up for her shifts at work, all of which was unusual.

Deputies said they contacted Rivera on Oct. 23 about Montalvo’s disappearance. Montalvo was married to Angel Rivera’s son, Christopher Otero-Rivera. Records show the two had a rocky relationship that included Montalvo accusing Otero-Rivera of domestic violence on more than one occasion.
