Deputies Say A Missing Florida Lady Was Discovered Dead Inside A Storage Facility: Know More Here

Shakeira Rucker, a 37-year-old Winter Springs mother of four, is thought to have disappeared on November 11. After her body was discovered on Saturday, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that a homicide investigation had been launched into her disappearance.

Around 5:00 p.m., someone reported an odour at the self-storage facility located at 2400 Wiggins Road in Apopka, prompting the dispatch of deputies, according to FOX 35 Orlando.

“Shakeira’s family was notified this evening,” OCSO said in a Facebook post. “We grieve with them [and] our detectives are committed to bringing them justice in this case.”

When Rucker was last seen, she was with her estranged husband, who FOX 35 described as Cory Hill. When Hill disappeared, she was soon designated as a person of interest.

The night she was reported missing, the two were captured on camera leaving a restaurant in Polk County, according to officials.

Online records indicate that Hill is now being held in the Orange County jail. Despite being charged with unrelated attempted murder, he is said to have refused to speak with deputies or police regarding Rucker’s disappearance. He has not been charged or designated as a suspect in Rucker’s death.

“I just want my mom to come back,” 16-year-old Mikayla Rucker previously told FOX 35. “It’s hard, her not being here, because I’m always with her. It’s like I can’t live without her. She’s all I know.”

A $5,000 reward had been offered by Crimeline for information leading to Rucker’s whereabouts.

John Mina, the sheriff of Orange County, is anticipated to talk about the case at a press conference on Sunday.
