The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office charged a man with homicide on Thursday after he failed to find care for his dying girlfriend.
Sheriff’s Office detectives arrested 29-year-old Yeshua Obed Ramirez.
The investigation in this case began on Dec. 4, when deputies responded to a “no vitals call,” according to a Sheriff’s Office press release. Deputies found Fabiola Cosme-Feliciano unresponsive, who was in the company of her boyfriend, Ramirez. Ramirez told deputies Cosme-Feliciano had been sick for some time from diabetic complications and she was not able to afford her diabetic medication.
She was taken to the hospital where she was later pronounced deceased. Detectives conducted a complete investigation and learned that Ramirez had previous knowledge of Cosme-Feliciano’s medical condition and complications and did not seek assistance for her and possibly save her life. Ramirez observed Cosme-Feliciano’s condition deteriorate for a period of several days without providing assistance or calling for help, Sheriff’s Office officials said. Ramirez left her at times without means of transportation or communication, having knowledge of her condition and knowing she had been hospitalized in the past for similar diabetic symptoms. He was taking part in criminal drug activities while leaving Cosme-Feliciano alone and critically ill, the press release stated.
A warrant was issued for the arrest of Ramirez for homicide-negligent manslaughter and Ramirez was arrested and booked into the Osceola County Jail with a $100,000 bond.
