Florida Sheriff Calls For A Much Needed Change To The Law
Florida Sheriff Russ Gibson is grieving over the brutal murder of mother Nicole Montalvo. She did everything by the book and was killed by her violent husband. Gibson feels this all could have been avoided if the laws were stricter on domestic violence. Montalvo’s husband should never have gotten away with the things he did.
“As the tight-knit community of Osceola County, Florida mourns last week’s brutal murder of Nicole Montalvo, Sheriff Russ Gibson is left wondering if and how the justice system failed the young mother and longtime victim of domestic violence.
The state of the body, he said, is in one of the worst conditions he has ever seen and the cause of death is still yet to be determined.
“I’m so angry what these people have done to this sweet woman, at a time in her life when she felt as though she had finally broken free (from the relationship) and was so happy to have made her first month’s rent,” Gibson told Fox News in an exclusive interview on the case. “Many times, victims of domestic violence don’t know how to break free, but she was out there on her own getting it done. Now she is dead.”
The 33-year-old, a smiling employee at Broadway Pizza Bar in downtown Kissimmee, was reported missing last Wednesday after having dropped their 8-year-old son Elijah off at school in St. Cloud on Monday, and not returning to collect him. Investigators discovered human remains at a property belonging to Montalvo’s in-laws on Friday; authorities confirmed the identity of the remains as Montalvo two days later.
According to Gibson, the remains – which are still being examined by the coroner – were “disassembled”, and the situation so far marks the worst he has seen in his 32 years as a homicide detective and sheriff.
Police arrested Montalvo’s former father and law and estranged husband. They have been charged with premeditated murder and are currently being held without bond.

“This is a person who already tried to snap Nicole’s neck, and he took this plea deal,” Gibson lamented. “Domestic violence should not be a misdemeanor; they should be a felony. If weapons are used, they can be enhanced to a felony. But anything domestic violence-related should be moved to a felony.”
Her former husband tried to kill her that should have been a felony. Hopefully, they can work to amend the law to better protect women from monsters like her husband.
