Pedro Torres “is known to frequent Broward County and is believed to be somewhere in that area,” according to the department.
Vicky Torres, 45, was found dead early Sunday morning inside the couple’s home in the 8100 block of 102nd Avenue in Vero Beach.
Preliminary evidence has led detectives to believe that her husband killed her before fleeing south. Pedro Torres is believed to be armed and dangerous.
Indian River County Sheriff Deryl Loar Sunday urged anyone with information on this to call 9-1-1 immediately. Tipsters may be eligible for a reward of up to $3,000 by contacting Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-800-273-TIPS (8477) or by visiting their website at www.tcwatch.org.
