Pasco County Sheriff’s Office Press Release Re: Uber Eats Driver Murdered
Pasco Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of Oscar Adrian Solis for an alleged homicide committed during a robbery today.
An adult male victim who was working as a delivery driver for Uber Eats on April 19, arrived at Solis’s Moog Rd. home in Holiday just before 7 p.m. to drop off food ordered by Solis’s father for Solis. Solis then attempted to rob the victim and ultimately killed him. No other individuals were at Solis’s home at the time of the murder. The victim and Solis did not know each other.
PSO was originally called to investigate a body that was discovered in the Moog Rd. area on Friday, April 21 just after noon. Initially, no cause of death or identification of the body could be determined. Through further investigation, and in working with the Pasco-Pinellas Medical Examiner, both identification and cause of death were determined over the weekend, and the case was ruled a homicide at that point. Investigators have determined that Solis pulled the victim into his home and attempted to rob him. This was captured on Solis’s home surveillance. After that, Solis murdered the victim and attempted to conceal the victim’s remains.
The adult male victim was the subject of a missing persons case that was reported to PSO on April 19. Solis has a long criminal history in Indiana, and was just released from an Indiana prison in January 2023 following an over four-year sentence for assault and burglary. Prior to this incident, Solis had no criminal history in Florida.
