On April 4, 1985, Miami-Dade police received a report about a suspicious trash bag wedged between two boulders on Virginia Key Beach. When they arrived at the scene, they cut open the bag to find a dismembered corpse of an unidentified woman. While the findings were grisly, the Miami PD weren’t all that shocked. With all the cocaine running in Miami during the 1980s, brutal murders were not uncommon. The cops chalked it up to being a drug-motivated murder and the body was marked as a “Jane Doe.” The case remained unsolved for 25 years until a DNA analysis determined the victim was Nilsa Padilla, was a mother of three.
Gloria, Bernisa (pictured above), and their sister who wishes to remain anonymous, lived through a childhood that no one should have to endure. They allegedly lived like animals in the wilderness of the Florida Keys and were subjected verbal, physical, and sexual abuse at the hands of their father, Jorge Walter Nunez.
Two sisters who witnessed two alleged murders lived a life of fear, wondering if their father would reappear and murder one of them. Both maintained a wall of silence until the fateful day when Gloria walked into the Miami-Dade police department to speak out against her father. When she initially told her story, police didn’t believe her.
Would police be able to follow a trail that lead back to double homicide? Would they locate Jorge Nunez, who may have slipped out of the country? Will police ever be able to bring the man who heinously killed his wife, and then allegedly murdered his baby daughter to justice?
