Police have arrested a 27-year-old man believed responsible for burglarizing and murdering a woman at People’s Self-Storage in Miami, Fla., last week. Surveillance footage from the facility shows 55-year-old Joslin Augustin being approached by a white car and shot in the neck before the gunman stole her purse.
