Man sought after wife killed in Vero Beach

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, Fla. -- An Indian River County woman was killed Sunday morning and deputies are looking for her husband as a person of interest in her death.

At approximately 7:45 a.m., deputies responded to a home in the 8100 block of 102nd Avenue in Vero Beach and found 45-year old Vicky Torres dead inside.

According to the sheriff's office, preliminary evidence has led detectives to believe that her husband, Pedro Torres, killed her.

A B.O.L.O. (Be On The Look Out) has been issued for Pedro Torres, who is believed to be driving a gray Nissan two-door 350Z car with Florida tag EGIX72.

Torres is known to frequent Broward County and is believed to be somewhere in that area.

Indian River County Sheriff Deryl Loar said, "Tragically, we have experienced another domestic violence homicide in our county. We know that domestic violence is a crime that spans all socioeconomic boundaries. We are working with our partners in South Florida to locate and apprehend Pedro Torres so he can be held accountable for this crime."

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Pedro Torres should call 9-1-1 immediately. Torres is believed to be armed and should be considered as dangerous. You can remain anonymous and possibly 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.
