Fox 35 Orlando reported that Torres was abducted while she was driving home from her office on 7 January.
That woman, who was never harmed, and Zengotita-Torres, who was married and the mother of a 14-year-old boy, were co-workers.
Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson said Ishnar Lopez Ramos hired Alexis Ramos Rivera and his girlfriend, Glorianmarie Quinones Montes, to kill a romantic rival, but they mistook Janice Zengotita-Torres, 42, of Kissimmee, for the intended victim and killed her.
Analysts trust they did in the end acknowledge they'd grabbed the wrong individual yet "proceeded with their arrangement of murder and tied the casualty with zip ties, and after that her head in channel tape and junk sacks", Gibson said.
"The victim was not the actual target of the murder for hire that was actually killed". Officials believe she was beaten and suffocated.
Zengotita-Torres died of suffocation.
Lopez Ramos was tracked down through the stolen bank card and was caught while making a withdrawal with it, all while reportedly wearing the victim's clothes.
She made a decision to hire Alexis Ramos-Rivera and his girlfriend, Glorianmarie Quinones Montes, to kill the woman, but they mistook Zengotita-Torres for their target and abducted her instead.
Authorities found Janice Zengotita-Torres' body Tuesday in Volusia County.
The three women charged in her death all came to Central Florida from Puerto Rico in late December, deputies said.
Gibson praised the actions of the family in securing the arrests.
The couple dumped Zengotita-Torres' body in Ormond Beach late Sunday or early Monday and then abandoned her vehicle, the sheriff said.
Ramos was arrested Thursday night while using Zengotita-Torres' card to withdraw cash from an ATM in the area, according to authorities.
It turns out that the victim was mistaken for the target of a murder-for-hire plot, Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson said. "This mother, this wife, this daughter, for no reason at all", Sheriff Russell Gibson told the news station.
As she was being led from the Osceola County Sheriff's Office to a cruiser that would take her to jail, Quinones-Montes cried and denied she was involved.
All three suspects gave full confessions and face charges of premeditated first-degree murder.
