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.
