According to the Miami-Dade Police Department Homicide Bureau detectives, the missing person’s case is being investigating as a homicide.

Claderin reportedly had filed for divorce from her husband, 54-year-old Jesus Maqueira after 20 years of marriage.

Detectives said Maqueira visited Calderin’s place of employment where they argued. After Calderin left work, she was not seen or heard from again.
