A man who was seen in the company of a 25-year-old Brooklyn woman, now missing, is in county jail on a probation violation. Michael Mele, a 23-year-old registered sex offender, is being held on $50,000 bail. One neighbor says he thinks that police removed a machete from Mele's Orange County property. There were also reports of Mele standing in a dumpster, and a woman's shoe being found nearby.
Police believe that Laura Garza was killed, after finding blood in Mele's Infiniti. According to the NY Post, cops want to hear from anyone who saw Michael Mele's 2005 Infiniti FX35 (which had temporary plates) any time after early Wednesday morning.
