Bodies of two men found in West Little River home


Miami Herald writer

An anonymous call led police Thursday afternoon to a Northwest Miami-Dade home where the bodies of two men were found.

Miami-Dade police have not released their names, but family identified them as Willie “Skipp” Lewis, 26, and Saintomas “Todo” Oscar, 35.

Police were waiting for legal permission to enter the home in the West Little River area to examine the bodies, a spokeswoman said.

Lewis’s aunt, Latasha Cook, said her nephew had just moved into the home near 102nd Street and Northwest 12th Avenue recently.

“He was very fun and loving, but he hung out with the wrong people,” Cook said.

She said Lewis was unemployed and that last time she saw him he had a new tattoo on his forehead, to the chagrin of his family members.

Jean Oscar said he was very close to both the victims, and the cousin of Saintomas Oscar, who used to work as a disc jockey. He was at the home Wednesday night. The men planned on watching the Heat game, Oscar said.

“When I left, they were just chilling.”
