Lilly Aramburo: Blood Stained Road Must Be Investigated By Miami Police

It is a blood stained journey on the road in the investigation of Lilly Aramburo. All pointing to the two individuals Christen Pacheo and Kelly Rae Sterling who were last with Lilly back on the night of June 2, 2007.

It is possible that by accident Christen Pacheo received a bad batch of drugs and gave them to Lilly that night. He may have panicked when he could not wake her. Then he waited after twenty-four hours to contact the police. With the body not likely to have been moved out of the area until afterwards, when it was safe.

Once the police arrived at two in the morning, a report was made by the responding officer, who had personal ties to Christen Pacheo. The report was buried along with important evidence that no doubt should have been investigated by the Miami Police Department.

Was Lilly still in the house someplace when police took the report? It is possible.

As the boyfriend, fiance', Christen Pacheo was never brought into the station and questioned. Nor was his place of residence ever searched. Had police entered the next day with a search warrant, I probably would not be writing this post.

Miami Citizens should be outraged! This could be your child or relative whose cries for simple assistance have fallen on deaf ears.

Maybe if everyone who reads this would take just a moment to email the following folks it would make the journey into this investigation more productive and those who are paid to do their jobs would finally solve a crime, long overdue! -Chief of Police Miami His telephone number is 1-305-603-6100

This is an outrage...such a tragedy!

The police came to Christen's apt. to take the report at 2AM, and the story of Lilly leaving to go pick flowers is also at 2AM...coincidence?

Miami, I cannot fathom their lack of compassion, most stores and establishments flat out REFUSE to post a flyer of Lilly and the ones that do, tear it down, or have it torn down within just a couple of days.

Who ever is in charge of Miami dept. should be emailed by everyone. Maybe that will get some action on this case.

This is a copy of the letter which I wrote to the missing person's department of the MDPD. I encourage others to use the website link and follow to the "Report a missing person" link.

Report Lilly missing, again.


I think you should see this.

This is about to hit national media exposure, all of the key groups in missing person cases are becoming involved, and the media is snowballing. Word is getting out, and it’s going fast.

Your department is the department who should have handled this case. Your department is the department accused of dropping the ball. Your department is the department who did not properly investigate, who did not listen, who did not seem to care. Your department is the department who isn’t returning phone calls, following leads, helping to search for this girl at all.

Your department is the one who turned a blind eye to a missing woman who disappeared at 2am to pick flowers with bungee cords in her pajamas. Who never looked at a man who beats women and a woman who has tried to kill people and hated this girl with a passion, who were the two people to last see her alive in the residence.

For 6 months you never even searched the apartment. For almost a year you have never brought in the last people who saw her for questioning. One who left town and now travels the country homeless. One who has been arrested on drug charges.

How is it that we found pictures of the abuse and bruises, we found evidence of a vehicle that disappeared completely shortly after she did, how is it that we found evidence of the hatred the girl in the apartment had for her, or evidence that she had tried to kill someone before, or evidence that there was a domestic violence history that your department had actually responded to- at the exact residence- between the missing woman and the last person to see her alive, and yet your department seems to have found nothing?

The police report suggests she was suicidal. Did someone in your department really decide she killed herself with flowers and bungee cords at 2 am and managed to hide her own body so well that a year later it has still not been found?

I wanted you to see this because I wanted you to know there are people who care, the numbers are growing. We want justice for Lilly, we want answers for her son.

We do not want him to forget her, as it seems your department as done.

This is a comment left by Lilly's close friend, it is both heartbreaking and infuriating.....

"but we're staying off the dope now, i'm not going to do any while we're living with lilly and david b/c theyre clean"
This is a quote from kelly- PROOF that Lilly was doing very well before KELLY came back into the picture!!!

Lilly was CLEAN that week when she was in rehab, (3 days before she VANISHED) she was CLEAR in her own mind, she wrote beautiful journal entries about her hopes & dreams of a good future with her baby, Palden. She wrote letters to friends about how hopeful she was.

Yet the DAY CHRISTEN picks her up for her court appearance, she fails a drug test given by the court. She INSISTED, under oath, that she had NOT used any drugs. She was adamant about it! But nobody believed her. Thinking back, it is a possibility that he drugged her without her knowledge. Lilly had previously shared with family that she had awoken several times in his apartment with her arms bleeding, with track marks and full of HICKEYS. She NEVER injected herself NEVER!! She was deathly afraid of needles. Christen would do ANYTHING to keep her with HIM.

She was in TREMENDOUS fear for her life. She called someone shortly before her disappearance, crying, scared, desperate for HELP.

So sad to think that she tried so hard to reach out for help, she begged & pleaded. But nobody DID ANYTHING TO HELP. They didn't do anything..

It's so painful to see how MDPD has FAILED her, how the system FAILED her. How some of her friends FAILED her. Partying, living it up, NEVER taking the time to even LOOK for her. NEVER cooperating with police through their own efforts.

There are MANY clues and enough evidence, at the very least, for the MDPD to make this case higher up on their priority list. What is it going to take for LE and media to do the right thing?

PLEASE PLEASE HELP DEMAND JUSTICE FOR LILLY. Write emails to Governor Crist. Simply copy & paste the article. There are a lot more people that can be contacted to put some MUCH NEEDED PRESSURE on MDPD.
PLEASE do everything in your power to bring closure to this family. MDPD should be investigated for their disregard in this case. Lilly is a human being and all human life is precious.

DEMAND JUSTICE FOR LILLY!Her mother is SUFFERING so much. Her son is slowly losing any memories he had of his mommy. It's the right thing to do.

Lilly, My one and only
This was one of Lilly's favorite songs. (Lyrics by Smashing Pumpkins:)

Lily, my one and only
I can hardly wait till I see her
Silly, I know I'm silly
cause I'm hanging in this tree
in the hopes that she will catch a glimpse of me
and thru her window shade
I watch her shadow move
I wonder if she.......?
Lily, my one and only
love is in my heart and in your eyes
will she or won't she want him
no one knows for sure
but an officer is knocking at my door
and thru her window shade
I watch her shadow move
I wonder if she could only see me?
and when I'm with her I feel fine
if I could kiss her I wouldn't mind the time it took to find
My Lily, my one and only
I can hardly wait till I see her
oh Lily, I know you love me
cause as they're draggin me away
I swear I saw her raise her hand and wave (goodbye)

Keep up the great work you are doing here everyone. Keep emailing and writing and maybe we can make a difference in the tragic case. We need to speak up for those who can no longer speak for themselves!!

Anonymous said...

Maybe when it all comes down to it, the tragedy we all can see in this case regardless of how much alike or different than Lilly we may that it's sad to think that in your most desperate anguished moment...that you could be just ignored.

If that wouldn't make you feel like absolute nothing, not sure what would...

I am saddened that nothing is heard in the media about Lilly. She is missing in more ways than one ... in reality, the media and apparently LE investigation while her family and son are hurting, needing answers.

I do hope something sparks MDPD to investigate Lilly's case more.

Miami Police should be embarassed for not doing their jobs!

Great job on the radio show and putting the word out about Lilly. Its simple enough if Miami police would do their jobs the person responsible would be in jail where they belong.

WHY aren't Miami police doing their job?!!

Something smells really bad and the scent is coming from MDPD.

I am putting a call out to everyone......

If anyone knows how we can trace the "totalled" black Cadillac Escalade that was once either owned or leased by Christen Pacheco, please let us know. I have no idea where to start on connecting the dots to this particular vehicle, but I feel it is of utmost importance to the case if we can find it and have it gone over with a fine tooth comb.

So if you know how to get this information, or know anyone who does, please contact me or anyone here. Thanks.....I know you are out there!

The attorney general William McCallom needs to do his job and have this man charged with fraud. A non profit agency that helpd children? It's a scam.

Tonight is Lilly's One Year Missing Vigil, let's all light a candle for her, wherever we are, in honor of Lucely Lilly Aramburo...

On Sunday, June 1st, 2008, Justice in Miami, Subliminal Pixels Lab, Maggie's Rose, and PK Graphics, sponsored a community safety event on the 1 year anniversary of Lilly Aramburo's disappearance. The event was a success.

We listened to live music courtesy of Power 96. Safety information and ID kits were handed out to parents and children. Guests signed in to receive their ribbon and candle. We had the beautiful "Lilly" line of hats and headbands, for sale. They were designed and donated courtesy of Maggie's Rose. You can see my girls and Havanna in the video wearing their hats. Everyone had something nice to say about them! Thank you, Sara! If you'd like more information on the "Lilly" line, please feel free to go to the Maggie's Rose website or contact us.

The butterfly ceremony/meditation was amazing. You could see the butterflies landing on our fingers and hands and the prayer flags in the background, blowing in the wind, releasing prayers for Lilly and all beings. A poem was read by Renea, Maya Angelou's "Touched by an Angel". And I read an excerpt from The Way of the Boddhisattva by Shantideva. We have a video clip of that below.

As a sign of solidarity with families of missing loved ones everywhere, Pastor Tony Isaacs led a special prayer. Our intention was that as each individual candle was added to the whole, it showed victims and their loved ones that there is a ray of hope.

All of the efforts were dedicated in honor of missing persons and victims everywhere, specifically, Lilly Aramburo, Heather "Kitty" Riggio, and Jennifer Kesse. Our aspiration is that they receive justice and the attention they deserve.

We'd like to extend a special thank you to our volunteers, (in no special order) Vivian, Renea, Sara, Delilah, Jamie, Hope Movement, the volunteers from Christ Fellowship, Pastor Tony Isaacs and all those who desire not to be mentioned (you know who you are!!)Thank you to our internet activists, our bloggers and friends in demanding justice...
And last but not least, a big hug and my sincere thanks to Bagua

THANK YOU! Your love and support helps us get through these difficult times. We stand with you in pride and gratitude. May you always live in truth and peace.

Although we had media present, only one channel and it's affiliate played it on the news.

Here is that clip from the vigil
