Yasser Abual Faraj, 23, was found dead earlier this month at his off-campus apartment in Coral Gables.

The third year architectural student was stabbed to death.

A source says the suspect is 28-year-old Robert Wayne Gore, a homeless man, and that the murder happened during a burglary.

Miami-Dade Police say Faraj’s body was discovered inside his 2nd floor apartment by his roommate on Sunday, October 7th.

They said it was a gruesome bloody scene with multiple signs of blunt trauma on the victim.

Police previously released a sketch of a person of interest, described as a white man with shoulder-length hair and last seen wearing a cap.

Based on previous mugshots of the suspect currently being questioned by police, it appears to be the same person.
