Police Release New Surveillance Video In Unsolved 2020 Murder Of NW Miami Mom

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami-Dade police have released new surveillance video that could help them crack a murder case from 2020, where a Northwest Miami-Dade mom lost her life when her home was riddled with bullets.

Ivelisse Alvarado Sanchez was found shot multiple times at a home near N.W. 18th Court and 129th Street on Jan. 26.

The shooting happened just before 4:30 a.m.

Sanchez's teenage son was also shot but survived his wounds.

At the time of the shooting, Alice Spann, who lives next door to where the incident happened, said "All I heard was bang, bang, bang. I heard about 10 shots. I didn't know what to think. I feel terrible. This is terrible. It was a life wasted."

In a strange twist, she also said another drive-by shooing at the same home claimed the life of another person from another family four years ago.

Anyone with information that can help them should call Miam-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS (8477).
