Sarah Boone Orlando, Florida woman tricks boyfriend into zipping boyfriend in suitcase, videos him suffocating to death. Video shows girlfriend taunting Jorge Torrez Jr. while trapped inside bag.
Sarah Boone, 42, come her arrest on Tuesday told detectives, having played a game of hide-and-seek with her partner, also 42, Jorge Torrez Jr., the day before while drinking alcohol. She said they both agreed, ‘it would be funny’ if Torrez got in a blue suitcase in her home outside of Winter Park, Orlando, WKMG reported.
Inexplicably the woman claims having forgotten all about the human cargo — falling asleep in her bed for hours before realizing Torrez was still inside.
Boone said she woke up to her cell phone ringing and went to go check on Torrez, only to find him unresponsive and not breathing.
She called 911 that afternoon with responding police finding Torrez dead at the scene.
But there’s more.

‘Yeah that’s what you do when you choke me,’
During investigations, cops said Torrez incurred a small cut on his lip along with bruising around his eye. Cops also retrieved two videos from Boone’s phone, which showed the girlfriend teasing Torres as he’s trapped in the suitcase.
Boon can be heard laughing in one video as Torres calls out her name and says he can’t breathe.
‘Yeah that’s what you do when you choke me,’ Boone said in one of the videos, according to WKMG.
One video shows the suitcase facing down with Torres pushing in an attempt to get out. A second shows the luggage in a different position as Torres calls out to Boone.
As Torres continued to assert he couldn’t breathe, Boone continued to mock him in one of the clips.
‘That’s on you. Oh, that’s what I feel like when you cheat on me,’ Boone is heard saying.
Deputies say they decided to arrest Boone after discovering ‘inconsistencies’ with her statements and what was captured on camera.
History of domestic violence:
In June 2018, Boone was arrested on a charge of battery by strangulation targeting her boyfriend, and Jorge was charged with battery stemming from an alcohol-fueled altercation inside their home.
According to an affidavit, Torres told a deputy Boone wrapped her hands around his neck and attempted to strangle him as he was walking upstairs to get away from her after an argument, prompting him to kick her.
A year later, Torres was arrested twice in a span of two months on charges of battery – dating violence.
In a Twitter post, Orange County Sheriff’s Office said Sarah Boone is now facing a second-degree murder charge. It remains unclear if the woman was allowed bail.
