Ormond Beach, FL – The Ormond Beach Police Department (OBPD) has released the identity of the woman who was found dead on the side of an Ormond Beach road on Monday.

Police responded at 8:57 AM Monday to the 100 block of Bennett Ln., near Granada Blvd. and Tomoka Ave., after someone in a work truck drove by and reported the body of a woman lying on the side of the road. OBPD ruled the incident a suspicious death. OBPD, along with the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO), identified the woman as 42-year-old Janice Marie Zengotita-Torres of Kissimmee, FL. Her next-of-kin has been notified.

According to a news release from OBPD, the OCSO contacted OBPD and informed them of a woman who was missing from their jurisdiction. The two agencies worked together to identify the woman, Zengotita-Torres, as the woman who was found dead in Ormond Beach.

On Friday morning, investigators with OCSO also identified a person of interest in the case, and that person was taken into custody by OCSO investigators. No further information has been released at this time.
