Roberto Colon is charged with the murder of Mary Stella Gomez-Mullet who was reported missing for more than two weeks after her remains were found in his backyard Friday night.

Boynton Beach resident Roberto Colon, 66, stood before a judge Saturday morning after the remains of a missing woman were found in his backyard Friday night. Boynton Beach police say 44-year-old Mary Stella Gomez-Mullet was last heard from the afternoon of Feb. 18 as she was headed to his house located on the 100 block of Southeast 28th Court. According to a police report, Colon hired Gomez-Mullet to take care of his mother in Hialeah who he claims suffers from dementia.

They told investigators that they believed something happened to Gomez-Mullet. Later that day detectives contacted a close friend of Gomez-Mullet who was on the phone with her as she was driving to Colon's house to return the items his mother gave her after accusing her of fraud. Gomez-Mullet's friend told police that before the call disconnected, she heard her say something similar to "No, no, no Roberto!" The friend said she tried to call Gomez-Mullet back but the phone kept going straight to voicemail.

The friend also checked Colon's home after that phone call but could not find any signs of Gomez-Mullet there. She believed it sounded as if Gomez-Mullet had been attacked, according to the police report. After Colon agreed to a search of his property, detectives went to his house the next day and found blood on his front door.

He also told detectives that he had buried "approximately six dogs" in the backyard. Crime scene investigators later confirmed it was human blood. On Feb. 26, a residential search warrant was executed and additional evidence was found. While on scene Colon conversed with detectives and called the room where the blood was found his "abattoir. "An abattoir is a French word meaning slaughterhouse. According to the police report, Colon told detectives that Gomez-Mullet was "swimming with the fishies" and referred to her as a "piece of s**t b***h. ""Find the body, find the body," Colon shouted to detectives. Police say as investigators were leaving, Colon said with a smirk:"Well at least you didn't find a body at my house. "Last Wednesday detectives were advised by an unnamed source that in January, Colon threatened to strangle Gomez-Mullet to death and bury her in his backyard. On Friday, the Boynton Beach Police Department arrested Colon for narcotics found during the previous search.
