Miami-Dade police arrest Fernando Granados and charge him with the murder of Tiffany Cabreja

Fernando Granados
Miami-Dade police have arrested a Homestead man and charged him with second degree murder in connection with the death of 18-year-old Tiffany Cabreja.

Yesterday, detectives picked up 20-year-old Fernando Granados after receiving a tip that Granados had told an acquaintance that he had killed Cabreja.

Cabreja's body was found at a South Miami-Dade construction site last weekend.

Soon after arriving  at police headquarters, Granados told detectives that on Friday, Sept. 20, he and an unidentified friend took Cabrejas to a Leisure City park to smoke crack.

Then, for some reason, the trio then went to a construction site at SW 281st Street and 144th Ave. It was there, Granados told detectives, that he began to choke Cabrejas while his friend attacked her.

When police discovered Cabreja's body on Saturday, a ligature was tied around her neck and a bag had been placed over her head.

A source tells me that Granados lives at SW 285th Street and 144th Ct., walking distance from where Cabreja's body was found.

This morning police  are attempting to locate and question the man who Granados says was with him.

On Wednesday police questioned a man and a woman who were believed to have been involved in dumping Cabrejas' body. Police released the couple late Wednesday night after determining they were not connected to the case.

Granados will make his initial appearance in bond court later today.
