Firefighter Nation has also been following this story with its latest here and here.

As this story slowly unfolded, it was apparent that many details were being kept from public record. Investigators had tight lips about what was going on. However, much of the circumstances left others wondering what really happened to Perdomo.

Even with the murder charges, we are left wondering what happened.

Perdomo was married with two children, 3 and 10 years old.

He had an apparent girlfriend in Maine whom he visited every month.

He was somehow wrapped up in drug related activity.

Seminole County Firefighters have been in Maine and assisted with the search for Perdomo.

More information will be posted as it is available.

    It’s a shame that all the headlines read missing “firefighter.” They should read missing “drug dealer”. I guess we shouldn’t think that firefighters are any different than any other people. We have our share of dirt bags in our ranks and this guy was one of them.
