The preservation of democracy and our nation rests on the foundation of public order and the
rule of law. Nothing attacks these pillars like the murder of a law enforcement officer entrusted
with protecting our citizenry. This crime strikes at the very core of the American identity.
For a quarter of a century we have labored to hold responsible the individuals we believe caused
the death of Miami Police Officer Victor Estefan. Officer Estefan died a hero protecting our
community. Our hearts go out to Officer Estefan`s widow, family members, friends, and the
entire law enforcement community who have stood by our side for all of these years.
Now, with the declaration of a mistrial in the prosecution of Dennis Escobar for Officer Estefan ˜s
murder, I wish to make it clear that the Miami-Dade State Attorney`s Office has every intention of
retrying this case.
