Based on evidence obtained during the investigation, it was determined that Joysee’s boyfriend, Joel Bauza, is responsible for Joysee’s death,” the statement said. Bauza, Chief Cecil Smith said in the statement, “made efforts during the initial investigation to move this case toward a suicide investigation,” police said in a July 31 statement. “Through the great work of the Lake County Medical Examiner’s Office and our Major Crimes Investigators, it was clear that Joysee did not take her own life.” “She was a radiant woman who made a positive impact on so many lives in this community,” the statement continued. “We are saddened that Bauza’s actions took her away from her loved ones so prematurely. We hope that she now receives the justice she deserves.” Her son told WESH that he was devastated when he learned that he had lost her mother. “Like my body was a piece of glass, it was just cracked, shattered in every way,” Steven Rivera Cartagena told WESH. Calling her mother her “best friend,” he told Fox 35: “My mom was my world to me. That’s all I knew and that’s all I wanted to know,” he said . “Losing her made me feel like she was an orphan in a way. I was like, ‘What do I do?’
