Jimmy Ryce’s Killer
Homicide of 10 year old Jimmy Ryce case was handled By Pat Diaz
… The lead Miami-Dade detective on the case, Pat Diaz, took the long view on the sentence and the inevitable appeals.
“For the Ryce family, I’m happy this finally came to a conclusion,” he said. “Many, many years from now, other people will decide whether what we did was right.”
… Miami-Dade Homicide Detective Pat Diaz, the same man who once served in uniform with Fernandez, took him into custody. He remembers that day vividly. “I say it how it is,” Diaz says. “This ain’t movie stuff where you go into a room and talk about what happened. I spelled it out. I said, ‘Gil, the game’s up. You’re looking at three murders. ”
… “The defendant forced (Jimmy) into his vehicle at gunpoint. The defendant then drove the victim to a trailer located on the property at the 22000 block of SW 149th Avenue. The defendant then forced the victim inside the trailer and made him undress . . . the victim was then dressed and placed back in the defendant’s vehicle. The defendant drove around the area of the abduction and subsequently returned to the trailer . . . then shot the victim with a firearm, causing the death of Samuel James Ryce,” wrote lead case detective Pat Diaz
… As they walked away, hand in hand, lead Detective Pat Diaz watched them go and nodded. “Justice was served,” he said. “Just say that: Justice was served.”
