According to a PBCSO probable cause affidavit, the victim was found dead of a gunshot wound on Drexel Road near West Palm Beach. Deputies said his pants were pulled down and a Magnum condom was found in his possession.
After looking through surveillance video from a nearby Shell gas station, detectives saw a bearded man in the same area around the time that witnesses reported hearing what sounded like a firecracker.
Detectives were able to locate the man’s Chevrolet Equinox at a mobile park on Drexel Road the next day, December 1st. When deputies stopped the driver of the vehicle for an expired license plate, the man identified himself as Viera.
Viera was reportedly wearing the same clothes and cap as the man they saw in the surveillance video.
After searching Viera’s home, investigators found a gun and shirt matching the one seen in the surveillance video lying next to each other on the bed. The affidavit said:
“Detectives also located a used condom on the floor next to the bed and a three-pack box of Magnum condoms in the bedroom next to the handgun. There was one condom missing from the package.”
Investigators also located a large amount of hair in the bathroom sink next to a beard trimmer. The affidavit said:
“It should be noted that in the Shell gas station video, Viera has a full beard, and when he was arrested, he only had a goatee. It appeared he shaved part of his beard in the day between the homicide and his arrest.”
