Uber Eats Driver’s Alleged Killer Might Encounter Capital Punishment if Found Guilty

egal representatives have stated their intention to press for the ultimate sentence – death penalty – for the man believed to have mercilessly slain and dismembered a Pasco County Uber Eats delivery driver, if he is declared guilty.

The prosecution’s objective is to demand capital punishment for the accused murderer, Oscar Solis.

Despite the grave accusations, Solis entered a plea of not guilty to the charges of murdering Uber Eats driver, Randall Cooke, who was declared missing when he failed to return home following his final delivery.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco discloses that Cooke’s last known location, as captured on surveillance footage, was delivering to a residence on Moog Road in Holiday, occupied by Solis.

“In the video, he’s simply standing, waiting. He was likely questioning whether he was at the correct address,” stated Sheriff Nocco. “There was no response. Then, the footage abruptly ends.”

The affidavit reports that investigators scrutinized further security footage from the subsequent day after Cooke’s disappearance, taken from a camera situated at the rear of the Moog Road residence.

“On the tape, you see Oscar Solis, along with another person, hauling trash bags around the side of the house,” Sheriff Nocco mentioned.

The unfortunate revelation was that Cooke’s remains were later discovered in those very trash bags. Moreover, Cooke’s wedding ring and car keys were found within the confines of the Moog Road dwelling.

The inquiry also included interviews with Solis’ housemate, who resided at the same house with his wife and child. The housemate reported hearing a loud disturbance from Solis’ bedroom on the evening Cooke was spotted delivering to the home in the video.

Per the affidavit, the roommate and his family decided to relocate to a hotel the subsequent morning due to their discomfort with the situation.

During a thorough examination of the residence, investigators found the premises stained with blood in multiple areas, including the kitchen, living room, and Solis’ bedroom and bathroom. Items belonging to Cooke, including his wedding ring, wallet, and car key fob, were recovered from the house.

Sheriff Nocco commented on the randomness of the victim, stating, “It could’ve been anyone.”

The possible motive for this brutal act remains a mystery.

Solis, indicted for first-degree murder and desecration of a corpse, is now under the representation of an attorney from the public defender’s office.

The events that transpired after Cooke was last seen on camera remain murky, but deputies from Pasco County assert that was the last time Cooke was seen alive.

“Someone abruptly pulled him in and extinguished his life,” Sheriff Nocco added.

The affidavit details Cooke’s wife’s growing concern as she was unable to establish contact with him, her messages eventually ceased to display as “delivered.” In an attempt to trace Cooke, detectives later tried to signal his phone, but it seemed to be switched off.
