Paula Sladewski, who posed for playboy, was found dead and burned beyond recognition in a dumpster in Miami. She was last seen in a club arguing with her boyfriend and when he got kicked out, Paula decided to stay…
“It’s so horrific. They’d have to be a monster. It’s a dastardly act,” North Miami police spokesman Lt. Neal Cuevas told CNN. “It’s the most heinous thing that a person can do to another person.”
Sladewski’s body was found Sunday night after firefighters extinguished flames coming from a large trash bin near a propane business. When they put out the fire, they saw a body. But there was barely any way to identify it.
Cuevas, who was in the area when the call came in, said the trash bin and body were still smoldering when he arrived. Police were able to identify the body through dental records late Tuesday night, he said.
Police are trying to figure out how a model from Michigan, who appeared in a 2003 Playboy video, ended up burned beyond recognition inside the trash bin — and who put her there.
The only timeline police have comes from Sladewski’s boyfriend, who was vacationing with her. Because he was the last one to see her, police are considering him a person of interest, but he has not been named as a suspect.
Police said they would consider whoever was the last known person to see her alive a person of interest. Right now, they have no suspects, Cuevas said. The boyfriend is “devastated and traumatized” by news of the death, said his attorney, Marc Beginin.
The boyfriend, whom police did not identify, reported Sladewski missing to police and also tried to find her by calling hospitals and jails, interviewing people and hiring a private investigator, Beginin said. The boyfriend also has met with investigators for 12 hours, the attorney said.
“The Miami police are pursuing all leads and doing their jobs. However, ultimately, he doesn’t need to be a person of interest,” he said.
The couple arrived in Miami on Thursday to ring in the new year by watching Lady Gaga perform, police said.
Cuevas told CNN that Sladewski’s boyfriend said they went to Club Space on Saturday and remained until about 7 a.m. Sunday, when they got into an argument. When he was thrown out of the club after the altercation, Sladewski decided to stay, her boyfriend told police. That was the last time her boyfriend saw her, according to police. Cuevas said when Sladewski did not return to their hotel by Monday, her boyfriend called police and filed a missing person report.
Sladewski’s sister, Kelly Farris, was battling back tears at a news conference Wednesday night. She said her sister had been dating the man for about two years, and he had called her Monday to say she was missing.
Farris said she had last seen her sister, who lived in Michigan and California, at Christmas.
The boyfriend was the last person to see her and they got in an argument but he is not a suspect because he put in an effort to look for her… SMH!!! Something doesn’t make sense about this…
