FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) — Ft. Lauderdale Police have reopened an eight-year-old cold case involving the shooting death of a woman in the hopes that someone from the community may be able to shed light on what happened.READ MORE: Legendary 'Goodfellas' actor Ray Liotta dead at 67
Angela Aguiar, 38, a wealthy real estate agent and mother of two, was shot twice on June 29th, 2008 while accompanied by her boyfriend in Ft. Lauderdale.
Officers arrived to find her dead in the arms of her boyfriend. He told police a white man in baggy clothing and a headband, who appeared to be homeless, shot her while the couple was sitting inside their beige Toyota Tundra truck.
However, without any additional leads, the investigation went cold from there.
Eight years later, detectives have opened the case back up.
“It was the weekend and I remember her and a few friends went out to get ice cream,” said her son, Elijah Aguiar, who was just 17 at the time. “They were partying. And I assume they went out to get a few drinks.”READ MORE: BSO Investigates Fatal Crash In Dania Involving Motorcyclist
When he realized it was getting late and hadn’t heard from his mother, Elijah began calling her.
“I was calling her phone and she normally always picks up,” he said. “It was 4 o’clock (in the morning) and I knew something was up. So I stayed awake and then next thing you know, around 7:30 a.m., the police come knocking on my door saying my mother passed away.”
Angela was found outside of the truck, by the railroad tracks along Broward Blvd and N.W. 2nd Avenue, suffering from two gunshot wounds.
“One in the back of her neck and then one through her back,” Elijah said. “The bullet was found in the dash and through the door.”
He’s hoping that someone who may have been hanging out in the busy downtown Ft. Lauderdale area that night may have seen something.
“She was found with pizza in her stomach,” Elijah recalled. “And now I have a four-year-old son and a three-year-old daughter and you know, I wish for them to see their grandmother.”MORE NEWS: Cruise Ship Smokestack Catches Fire in Turks & Caicos
