Circumstances

Rosa Marie Camacho and her mother, Rosa Delgado, left their Hartford, Connecticut residence. They left at approximately 5:00 P.M. to walk to a local store together and buy groceries. These groceries included milk and diapers. The store was in the 60 block of Madison Avenue. It has since been replaced by another establishment. Delgado left her five-month-old daughter at her home in the care of a sister. This was when she left with Rosa. She had only about $10. A witness saw Rosa’s father and Delgado’s former boyfriend, Julio J. Camacho. The witness saw them speaking to them on a street corner in their Parkville area neighborhood prior to the females’ disappearances. Rosa has never been seen again.

Body Found

A woman’s body was discovered floating in three feet of water in Columbia Lake. Her body was located in western New Jersey in November 1997. This was one month after Rosa and Delgado vanished. Her head and hands were missing. Authorities were initially unable to identify the homicide victim and named her “The Lady Of The Lake.” The woman’s identity remained a mystery until DNA tests were conducted in 1999. This was nearly two years later. The tests proved that the remains were Delgado’s. There have been no arrests in either Rosa’s disappearance or Delgado’s homicide. But Julio has been named as the prime suspect. By 1997, he had been an officer with the Hartford Police Department for several years.

Backstory

He was still married when he began seeing Delgado in 1992. She was sixteen years old at the time. Rosa was born in 1993 and Delgado applied for state benefits. As a result, the state of Connecticut sought child support from Camacho. He was ordered to pay nearly $200 a week to help support Delgado’s daughter. He was already paying child support for three children by other relationships while raising his second wife’s children. In November 1997, Julio asked the court to cancel his child support order for Rosa. This was until DNA testing established paternity. He didn’t mention that Rosa and her mother were missing. Delgado and Rosa lived with relatives, who stated Julio visited them at their apartment and also called them regularly prior to their disappearances.

Disappearances N Investigation

But the visits stopped as soon as the pair vanished and Julio never contacted her family to see if they’d heard from them. The police didn’t publicize the disappearances until nearly a month had passed. Delgado’s family accused the Hartford Police Department of mishandling the investigation. And the family stated that they were trying to cover up Julio’s misconduct while he was with the department. Julio was charged with third-degree assault of his ex-wife in 1989 and terminated, but reinstated after the charge was dismissed. He had seen two charged with third-degree assault of his ex-wife in 1989 and terminated, but reinstated after the charge was dismissed.

Julio’s Charges

Julio had seen two women, including Delgado, regularly. He saw them while he was on duty and fathered children with both of them. Two women claimed Camacho had handcuffed, abducted and raped them. He had done this while on duty and in uniform; one of the incidents occurred in 1995 and the other in 1997. Five others came forward with similar allegations. Julio was one of seven Hartford police officers accused of committing sex crimes while on duty during this period. In 1998, Julio resigned from the Hartford Police Department. He cited family issues as the reason. His wife, also a police officer, had been on extended medical leave. In 2001, Julio admitted to the 1995 and 1997 rapes and pleaded guilty. And the prosecution agreed to not seek charges in the other cases.

Opinion

Rosa Maria Camacho has been missing for almost 21 years. Her mother’s murder remains unsolved after all that time. She is murdered and her daughter remains missing. No one (s) is being held accountable in either. This is not okay. Someone (s) has evaded justice and has gotten by with the crimes. After 20 years, no one is behind bars for murdering a woman and causing her daughters to go missing. It has been over 20 years and the person named as a suspect hasn’t been arrested. Not in Rosa’s disappearance. Not in her mother’s murder. Does it have something to do with the fact that the Rosa’s father had been with the Hortford Police Department? The family believe that police had mishandled this investigation. Someone (s) knows something about both Rosa and her mother!
