The reward for information leading to the arrest of the individual responsible for the death of Zuheily Roman Rosado has been increased by Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida to a reward of up to $5,000.

Investigators have released a 58-second video and 13 still photos of the lone suspect entering the Mobil Mart gas station at about 10:09 p.m., and then fleeing moments later after killing Rosado.

Investigators have been unable to establish a clear motive for the killing and have said that it would not be prudent to speculate as to what the motive may have been.

Flagler County Sheriff’s Office investigators are seeking the public's help in the on-going investigation of the death that occurred the evening of Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013.

Rosado, a mother of six, was shot and killed while working at the Mobil Mart gas station located at 6020 E. State Route 100, in Palm Coast. The case remains under active investigation.

Investigators have described her assailant as a light-skinned man, approximately 5 feet, 10 inches tall, wearing blue jeans and a dark T-shirt.

The man is seen fleeing from the store moments later and heading west on foot toward the northbound entrance ramp to I-95.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Detective Mark Moy at 586-4801 or
call Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida, toll-free, at 888-277-TIPS.

Tipsters can text information by texting "tip231" plus their message to CRIMES (274637). Tipsters who provide information to Crime Stoppers will remain anonymous and can qualify for a reward of up to $5,000.

  • This could be an "initiation" killing to join a gang or a preclude to test the waters. It scares me to think if it was either of these. It does look like a "Hit"

  • This is so hard to watch. If robbery wasn't the motive, then why would someone just run in there & shoot, and run back out.....Was she involved in any custody disputes or have a vengeful ex? No one wants to speculate, and I'm not an investigator....but by viewing this video, it makes me wonder was this a pre-meditated murder? I am so sorry for her family, most importantly her children. I hope they can find some answers.
