Lopez-Ramos gave a full confession to authorities and implicated the other two suspects, who were subsequently arrested and provided full confessions as well, according to the sheriff's office.

"All three confirmed this was a murder for hire and that the victim was mistakenly targeted and murdered", the Sheriff said.
