The couple got married last month and recently moved into unit 703 in the Champlain Towers South.
“They moved out of one condo in Surfside and moved into that building. They thought they were upgrading, going to a better place. They were so excited about the place. It was literally resort living,” Danny Caliguire, Doran-Manashirov’s friend, told KDKA on June 29.
Caliguire said Doran-Manashirov’s half-sister gave her DNA so first responders can match it if remains are found.
