Human Remains Identified as Missing Wesley Chapel Woman
Linda V. Losacano and her daughter were reported missing in May.
The human remains found in a wooded area of Wesley Chapel on Nov. 15 have been tentatively identified as those of Linda V. Losacano.
Losacano and her then 5-year-old daughter were reported missing by Losacano's sister on Saturday, May 5.
The father of their child, Timothy Dean Arnold, shot himself when the Pasco Sheriff's Office SWAT team forced entry into the home they shared on May 6 because of concern for the child.
The cause of death is not known, Sheriff Chris Nocco said at a Nov. 19 press conference.
“I spoke with her sister, who is obviously upset,” Detective Daniel Toner said.
Losacano's daughter is now 6 and lives in New Hampshire.
Arnold is the main suspect in Losacano's death, Toner said.
“There’s no reason to believe there’s anybody else involved,” Toner said.
Losacano would have celebrated her 50th birthday today, Nov. 19, according to the sheriff’s office.
