"This was obviously a very brutal, sadistic murder," Lt. Neal Cuevas of the North Miami Police Department told Fox News Monday.

"There's a person or persons out there who could very well commit another murder," Cuevas said.

Sladewski's burning body was discovered in a Miami dumpster last Sunday night. Her body was so badly burned it took another two days and dental records to identify her. Police do not believe she was burned alive, but have not released a cause of death.

Surveillance video from a trendy South Beach, Miami nightclub shows Sladewski leaving Club Space at 7:21 a.m. on the day she was killed, according to police.

Sladewski's boyfriend, Kevin Klym, 34, had been kicked out of the club 20 minutes earlier after a shouting argument with Sladewski, according to a missing persons report. The pair had been been partying in Miami since a New Year's Eve Lady GaGa concert.

Police have called Klym a "person of interest."

Klym says after he was kicked out of the club, he went straight to his hotel to sleep and frantically searched for Sladewski when he woke. Police recently confirmed parts of his alibi.

On Monday, investigators said they were now looking for a "black male."

Cuevas told Fox that police are warning residents "to exercise caution" as they search for the killer.

Sladewski appeared in a 2003 Playboy talent search video. Recently, she worked as an exotic dancer to make money. Klym listed his occupation as a laborer on the missing person report.
