The certificate was not made by a medical examiner, but Mina said they were confident it was Marcano. He said a wallet containing his identity card and personal belongings were found containing the body.
Marcano was on his way to Valencia College in Orlando.
He had moved there from Pembroke Pines, where he had graduated from Flangan High School.
The man known as the main culprit in his disappearance, Armando Caballero, was found dead Monday suicidal.
Caballero was a security guard at the Arden Villa apartment where Marcano lived and worked in a rented office.
Detectives obtained a warrant for his arrest before his death.
On Saturday, Mina said they were able to locate Marcano’s body following the whereabouts of Caballero on Friday where he disappeared.
The authorities obtained Marcano’s recently released cell phone records, which enabled them to copy him, Mina said.
Police said Caballero had been staying at Tymber Skan’s homes for some time in the past.
