“It’s not only from one side. Don’t try to make this like I’m a stalker,” replies Caballero[/caption]
The footage was recorded at the Arden Villas apartment complex in Orlando at around 3.25am on September 25, a day after Miya was last seen alive, according to Click Orlando.
It begins with 27-year-old Caballero speaking with an Orange County police officer before being confronted by Miya’s family.
“You have sent obsessive texts to Miya. We have all seen the texts,” the unidentified female relative says.
“You talked about giving her your life savings. You Cash App-ed her money and you claim that you weren’t in touch.”
Caballero then denies the relative’s allegations about offering his life savings, claiming “I never said that.”
“We’re gonna get a police report to pull your phone records if that’s the case,” the relative fires back, adding “You’re fascinated with Miya.”

“It’s not only from one side. Don’t try to make this like I’m a stalker,” replies Caballero, who was found dead from a suspected suicide days after the video was filmed.
“It takes two but obviously she’s missing so we’re talking to you,” replies the unidentified woman.
“I understand that. I respect that, that’s y’all’s family, but until we figure out what’s going on just don’t beat me up,” replies Caballero with his hands in the air in a defensive gesture.
Then a man presumed to be another of Miya’s relatives denies anyone is “beating up” Caballero, but questions why he would “put himself in the middle right here.”
“If I’m guilty why would I come here?” asks the maintenance worker and prime suspect after saying “we’re concerned.”
When Miya’s family asks why Caballero wasn’t concerned about Miya’s disappearance “hours ago,” he claims “we just found out” about it.
It appears that by “we,” Caballero means he and an alleged co-worker named Tati.
At the beginning of the video Caballero claims to be on the phone with this co-worker, who the female relative says “no one knows.”
“You keep mentioning Tati but no one knows Tati. Her roommates don’t even know Tati. She’s an employee but you keep saying Tati is a friend and that you’ve all hung out together” she adds.
“No one here knows Tati. All her other friends showed up. Her closest friends that live in the complex were all here early on. No one knows Tati. Only you.”
Caballero claimed he showed up at the apartment complex because he had been talking to Tati about Miya’s disappearance.
“In the first few hours we didn’t think it was serious,” he adds.
“Maybe they’re hanging out. Well, they got this place right here.
“They go downtown. I don’t know maybe her phone’s off. I don’t know where she is.”
Miya’s body was found in a wooded area near an apartment complex in central Florida on Saturday after a week-long search.
It was confirmed to be the teenage girl’s on Tuesday afternoon.
“Of course we are disappointed because there was a little glimmer of home that maybe it wasn’t her,” her family told The Sun in a statement.
The student was reported missing on September 24 after last being seen at the the Arden Villas apartment complex near University Boulevard and Rouse Road.
Caballero was named as a key person of interest in Miya’s disappearance on Monday hours after he was found dead from a suspected suicide in his apartment in Seminole County.
Miya, a sophomore at Valencia College, had been scheduled to catch a flight from Orlando to Fort Lauderdale on Friday evening to visit her family but never boarded the plane.
