Flagler shooting victim's children sent to live with their father in Miami


FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. - The six children whose mother was murdered while she worked at a Flagler County gas station are now being separated.

On Monday, a judge gave 32-year-old Zuheily Rosado's ex-boyfriend, Jose Vidal, custody of the three children he fathered.

The kids, ages 6, 9, and 11, will now live with him in Miami, even though court records show Rosado had a restraining order against him.

Rosado was shot and killed at a Mobil station on East State Route 100 in Palm Coast in February. Vidal has not been connected to her death.

Investigators said surveillance video shows a light-skinned man about 5 feet 10 inches tall entering the store wearing blue jeans and a dark T-shirt.

The man was seen in the video pulling his shirt up over his face. Moments later, he was seen fleeing the store and heading west towards the northbound entrance ramp to Interstate 95.

However, no suspects have been identified in the case.

The owner said cash that was next to the safe was left untouched, and investigators believe Rosado was targeted.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Flagler County Sheriff's Office at 386-313-4911 or call Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida at (888) 277-TIPS.

Tipsters who provide information to Crime Stoppers will remain anonymous and can qualify for a reward of up to $1,000.
