Trial Set for Woman Accused of Leaving Boyfriend to Die in Zipped Suitcase

Sarah Boone, a 45-year-old woman from Winter Park, Florida, is set to go on trial this October for the murder of her partner, Jorge Torres. The case has garnered national attention and has left many people questioning the motives and actions of Boone.

According to an arrest report, on February 25th, 2020, Boone called 911 and reported that she could not find her boyfriend. She told detectives that they had been playing hide and seek at their home when he climbed into a suitcase. However, when she woke up the next morning, she found him unresponsive inside the zipped-up suitcase.

Many are wondering how this tragic accident could have happened and what led Boone to leave her boyfriend trapped inside a suitcase overnight. As more details emerge about the case, it becomes clear that there is more to the story than meets the eye.

Boone’s initial statement to detectives seems suspicious at best. How could someone accidentally leave their partner zipped up in a suitcase? And why would they wait until the next morning to call for help? These are questions that will surely be addressed during the upcoming trial.

When she woke up the next morning, on 25 February 2020, she could not find Mr Torres but remembered he was in the suitcase.

When she unzipped it, she found Mr Torres unresponsive, the arrest report said, and she rang 911. She was then arrested.

Boone denies second-degree murder but detectives charged her after they found videos on her phone showing Mr Torres trapped in the suitcase, yelling that he could not breathe and calling out her name, the arrest report said.

After a hearing on Friday, the 46-year-old faces a trial starting on 7 October.

In one of the videos, Boone responded: “Yeah, that’s what you do when you choke me,” according to the report. She added: “Oh, that’s what I feel like when you cheat on me.”

A post-mortem found that Mr Torres had scratches on his back and neck, and contusions on his shoulder, skull and forehead from blunt force trauma as well as a cut near his busted lip.

Perhaps what is most concerning about this case is Boone’s history with multiple lawyers. Since her arrest four years ago, she has gone through several attorneys who have either dropped her as a client or been removed from the case due to conflicts of interest. This raises red flags and begs the question: does Boone have something to hide?

The fact that Boone has changed lawyers multiple times only adds to the suspicion surrounding her actions. It is clear that she is trying to manipulate the justice system and avoid facing consequences for her alleged crime.
