Prosecutor seeks death penalty for man accused of killing Uber Eats driver

Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty for the man suspected of killing and dismembering a Florida Uber Eats driver.

Oscar Adrian Solis Jr., 30, allegedly killed 59-year-old Randall Cook as he made a delivery at a home in Pasco County on April 19.

Prosecutors say it was Cook’s first day working for Uber Eats and she was stabbed 35 times once inside the home.

Surveillance video from the home shows two men, including the suspect, carrying garbage bags around the home.

When deputies went to the house they found human remains, including a foot wearing black socks, inside garbage bags, and Mr. Cook’s car had been moved from the house to a nearby location.

Brian Sarabia, a prosecutor with the Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney’s Office, says he will seek the death penalty if the suspect is convicted of first-degree murder and abuse of a dead body.

“I’ve never seen anything like this before. I can’t get over how someone could stoop so low,” State Attorney Bruce Bartlett told reporters on Monday.

And He added: “I can’t believe for the life of me that he was so reckless in what he did.”

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Noco has said the suspect is affiliated with the MS-13 gang and previously called the murder a “horrific crime of passion.”

“It appears there was a gentleman who was working, making his last delivery of the night,” Sheriff Nocco said. “And this man killed her for no reason and took her away from her family.”
