Sanel Saint Simon is being held in connection with Cherry’s disappearance. He is charged with attempting to destroy evidence and providing false information to police. Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings:
We could be looking at a homicide but that’s not what we’re saying at this time.
Alexandria Cherry, a 16 year old girl from Florida, speaks with her mother Monday morning and tells her she is staying home from school. Her mother returns later in the evening and does not find her. Police describe what she found:
The mother said she also saw blood spatter on several other areas of the residence and that there was a strong odor of bleach coming from a pair of men’s underwear found under her daughter’s bed.
