Woman’s body found inside car parked at St. Pete home, death ruled a homicide

Pinellas County

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) – St. Petersburg police detectives have determined that a “suspicious death” at a home in a quiet neighborhood is a homicide.

Police tell 8 On Your Side the incident happened at 7380 Organdy Drive North, not far from the downtown section of the city.

Police were called to the residence around 8 p.m. Thursday.

“A friend told us she was concerned she hadn’t been able to get in contact with her [friend],” said police spokeswoman, Yolanda Fernandez.

That’s when the friend went to the home of 43-year-old Sophie Solis and found the woman dead.

“It looks like she died a violent death. We haven’t pinpointed a cause of death until the medical examiner does an autopsy,” Fernandez said.

Police released documents that detail calls for service at the home. Paperwork shows officers were called to the home at least a dozen times in 2019, mostly for domestic violence issues.

Police said those issues involved Solis and a boyfriend. They didn’t identify the boyfriend but said he, and others, are being investigated as possible suspects.

If you have any information on this case, please contact police at 727-893-7780 or text SPPD your tip at TIP411.
