The body of a missing woman may have been found Monday in a submerged vehicle in a Kendall canal.

Raquel Calderin disappeared in 2012, and her estranged husband was charged with her murder.

But, just as police detectives await the identification of the remains, the desk officers who spent two years investigating the case could lose their jobs to Miami-Dade County budget cuts.

County Mayor Carlos Gimenez says the county's in a budget crisis, working with a $140 million deficit.

And, over 400 police officers could be on the chopping block under one of his proposals.

Dade Police Benevolent Association President John Rivera says county residents are the ones who lose out, saying Gimenez does not make the safety of the county's citizens a top priority.

Negotiations between the police union, the mayor's office, and budget officials are reportedly set to continue Monday, June 23rd.
