'I'm sorry' note left in room where 4-year-old girl was found dead in Kissimmee, deputies say

Osceola County Sheriff Marcos Lopez says an Orange County mother killed her 4-year-old daughter then attempted to kill herself in a hotel room at an Osceola County resort.    

Deputies say on Jan. 10 they responded to the Star Island Resort, located at 5000 Avenue of the Stars in Kissimmee, in reference to a "suicide attempt" call.

Security had received a call from the mother of Jacinda Decaro and requested a well-being check because she was unable to get ahold of her. 

"Michelle and Jacinda worked together and Jacinda had failed to show up to work," deputies said in a press release.
