    She told me that she has a great attorney who is going to prove everyone to be liars. However, she is being represented by a Public Defender. Last time I checked, they just try to work a plea deal.

    I spoke with the prosecuting attorney, Chris Cofino and he said that he's going the full gambit on this one..

    Good to know the police and prosecutors are working on this. A lot of crimes are committed by a small number of people, and if you ignore them it just multiplies. It's like graffitti.

    Thanks for staying on the case, and keep us posted.

    Monica Brown is now in custody. I will write more soon..This is a huge case. Turns out she is not a legal US Citizen. She is traveling on a German passport which may be not even be real.

    Who's bringing the popcorn to court?

    I suspect those are just fightin' words. Seriously, any attorney would have told her to keep mum and contact no one. Further proof she's probably delusional or simply doesn't "get it"

    The plot thickens ... now Homeland Security will probably get involved! How are you finding out all this, FL_Style?

    I'm not surprised one bit! FL_Style, did she have an accent?

    By the way, kudos to Detective Taylor for being on top of this. I guess it takes a vigilante village to nudge law enforcement but at least something is being done.

    Yes, she had an accent but who doesn't in Miami? I wouldn't think of it as German one though. I think that the whole Monica Brown name/id/passport etc...is a fake. I was informed of the German Passport by the detective, but I don't really know much information as they're still trying to piece this together.

    There will be several police task forces involved in this case due to the extent of her crimes & not being a US citizen. The lead investigator on the case is looking into her true identity as we speak.

    LOL...noone has mentioned Homeland Security as of yet. However, the lead detective will be bringing the ICE Unit - Contact ICE - Enforcement and Removal Operations to investigate where she came from & what she's doing here.

    Oh, it turns out that the "immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS)..." So I guess Homeland Security is going to be involved!

    My guess is that she's staying at that 5-star property just east of Overtown ...

    haha, maybe in Scotland, but the phrase goes back to before the 17'th century, with possible origins in the British navy. Here's a link with some info:

    Yes, you called that one. I was thinking that she may possibly be Romanian. She kind of sounded like a Gypsy.. As far as being deported, she would have to serve out her sentence in the US first & then be immediately deported to her native country. So now she will sit in jail without bail until her trial.
