Suspect Sought in Death of Exotic Car Rental Business Owner

Broward County, Fla. sheriff’s detectives are looking for the person who shot and killed the owner of an exotic car rental business while the business owner was trying to sell a vehicle, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Raimundo Modia on Dec. 22 was working to sell a silver 2008 Mercedes Benz coupe that he hoped would bring him $60,000. Detectives said he was shot during the transaction.

Investigators are asking the public to help them find Nalio Almaric Williams, 35, of Hialeah, but they won't reveal why they believe Williams may be connected to the case. A white Toyota Tundra truck was found near Modia's body, detectives said. The Mercedes was found abandoned the following day.
