Florida man admits to killing Erika Verdecia, who has a missing persons report

The incident took place in Florida’s Sunrise region. Broward County officials announced that there are new developments about the missing Erika Verdecia, who lives in Sunrise. A Florida man confessed to killing the missing Verdecia, according to Sunrise police. In addition to his confession, he recounted all the details of the incident to the police.

According to the statement made by the Sunrise police, Verdecia, who was wanted as missing, was found. Unfortunately, the woman died. Eric Pierson, 54, confessed to killing Verdecia, 33. He told the police all the details of how he committed the murder.

According to the arrest report obtained from the police units, Verdecia was last seen on 28 September. Verdecia’s mother reported her missing 4 days after she last saw her. The police officers who received the missing report immediately formed a special team to find Verdecia.

According to information police received from Verdecia’s mother, the missing woman was with Pierson on September 25. On the morning of September 25, the two were stopped at a police stop. Expanding their investigation into the incident, the police wanted to testify from Pierson. However, the investigation dragged on as inconsistency was found in what Pierson had told about Verdecia.

Erika Verdecia’s mother, Carmen Verdecia, was devastated after hearing the news that her daughter had been murdered. But the sad mother was also angry. She repeated over and over again that her daughter did not deserve such a thing. She especially lamented that Pierson was free to roam outside despite his crimes.

Investigators discovered that Pierson had previously been convicted of the strangulation of 17-year-old Kristina Whitaker. Pierson was also found guilty of attempted first-degree murder in 1985 and was sentenced to 18 years in prison.

In 2020, Pierson was released on supervised release. Meanwhile, he was about to complete 26 years of his sentence for murdering Whitaker. Carmen Verdecia stated that she could not understand why this murderer was walking around on the street and complained about the failure of the current justice system.

According to the report on Erika Verdica’s death, police officers detected blood in the back seat during their inspection of Pierson’s car. That same day, Pierson’s girlfriend called the police and said something about rocks and debris in the canal behind his house.

The police came to the scene with a diving team. The dive team found a body in the canal, identified as Verdecia’s, and removed it from the canal. The police interrogated Pierson again, and on the second interrogation Pierson decided to tell everything. Pierson admitted to killing Verdecia by sticking a screwdriver into her neck twice.

Pierson also mentioned that he stuck a screwdriver in the unfortunate woman’s eyes. He said he was trying to protect himself while doing all this. However, the investigators determined that this was not possible by size clarification. According to the generated incident report, Pierson had dumped the body in the canal and was using stones to keep it sinking to the bottom.

Pierson was arrested on Saturday for first-degree murder and sent to the Broward County Main Jail. Surveillance footage from areas where Verdecia is thought to be located shows she getting into Pierson’s truck the week before she disappeared.

Carmen Verdecia said she didn’t know her deceased daughter was with a murderer. The grieving mother said she didn’t even know how her daughter met him. Verdecia’s family said they wanted justice not only for their daughter but also for Pierson’s other victims. A GoFundMe campaign was launched to help Erika Verdecia’s family.
