Homeless Couple Held Without Bail in Woman's Murder

Couple accused of killing good Samaritan charged with first-degree murder

The homeless couple accused of killing a Davie woman who invited them into her home appeared in court Thursday, where they were charged with first-degree murder.

Delia Padron, 57, and Oscar Camejo, 55, AKA Lazard Falco, appeared before Broward Circuit Judge John Hurley who ordered them held without bail in the killing of 62-year-old Jill Dornbush.

Padron and Camejo had befriended Dornbush through her job at McDonald's, and the good Samaritan eventually invited them into her condo on the 3700 block of NW 78th Avenue, police said.

Police said Camejo and Padron became enraged when Dornbush would not allow the couple to use her shower.

"It is alleged that you acted in concert with Delia Padron to murder Ms. Dornbush in her home by stabbing her and choking her and wrapping her body in a blanket then dumping Ms. Dornbush's body in a dumpster," Hurley said during Camejo's Thursday hearing.

Dornbush, Padron and Camejo were seen on surveillance cameras in a nearby Walgreen's on Friday, April 30. Neighbors said that was the last night they saw Dornbush alive.

Several concerned residents at Dornbush's condominium complex went to her home Monday and found blood on the carpet and called police.

Detectives believe the body and possibly the murder weapon were in the dumpster and were already picked up and incinerated. Investigators are trying to track down the dumpster in hopes of collecting more evidence against the duo.

Padron and Camejo were arrested in a Hialeah McDonald's on Wednesday after employees at the restaurant recognized the two from news reports. Police also found Dornbush's light blue Honda Civic parked outside the McDonald's.

During Thursday's court appearance, it was revealed Camejo has prior arrests, including a warrant for possessing a firearm by a convicted felon, resisting an officer with violence, battery on a police officer or firefighter and various driving offenses.
