North Miami Police are asking for help after a man was found dead inside a local business late Wednesday.
Police say 32-year-old Jose Gonzalez was found dead inside Mimmo’s Mozzarella Italian Market on Northeast 123rd Street near West Dixie Highway.
Gonzalez was an employee at the small market, which sells cheese and other foods to many high-end South Florida restaurants.
According to police, Gonzalez was found dead around 9 p.m. A concerned citizen who was driving by the restaurant noticed that the lights were still on after hours, so he called police to check it out.
“Upon arriving, officers discovered the employee on the ground,” said North Miami Police spokeswoman Natalie Buissereth.
The business will remain closed until Monday. No further details were provided by police, as the case remains under investigation.
If you have any information, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Callers can remain anonymous.
