Man Allegedly Drags Pregnant Girlfriend From Her Caretaker Job Site Before Killing Her
Andreae Lloyd's father said she was trying to break things off with Xavier Johnson when he allegedly abducted her from her place of work and killed her.
A pregnant Florida woman is dead after her boyfriend allegedly kidnapped her and dragged her from her work site.
Andreae Lloyd, 27, was at her job at a Miami-Dade group home on Tuesday morning when “a male arrived and began to physically beat her,” the Miami-Dade Police Department stated in a Wednesday press release.
“The subject dragged and forced the victim into a white Honda Civic" before taking off into an "unknown direction,” police stated.
By Wednesday, police identified Lloyd’s boyfriend Xavier Johnson, 32, as the suspect behind her abduction and subsequent death. They've charged him with first-degree murder, kidnapping, and burglary with assault.
Police noted that human remains were discovered in Homestead but they are pending official identification by the local medical examiner's office. The remains were discovered inside a large metal box, the type that is typically found on the back of a pickup truck, CBS Miami reports. Johnson’s truck was allegedly parked nearby.
“We have charged the person responsible for her abduction & murder,” Miami-Dade Police Director Alfredo “Freddy” Ramirez tweeted on Wednesday. “Family, friends & our community are hurting since her tragic disappearance.”
Lloyd’s father, Arnold Lloyd, told Miami outlet WFOR that his daughter was about to break up with Johnson, whom she had dated for 11 years.
“She was going to leave him because he was messing around,” he said. “She was like a wife to him. Even though he was the boyfriend. She was like a wife to him.”
He said that police showed him Ring camera footage of the abduction.
“She opened the door for him. They attacked her, threw her down, put her in her own car, and drove away,” he relayed.
Alfreda Lyons, Lloyd’s godmother, told WFOR that Lloyd’s slaying leaves her two young sons, ages 1 and 5, without a mother. She was a few weeks pregnant with her third child.
It’s not clear if Johnson has a lawyer. He’s being held on no bond.
