TRAGIC spring breaker Christine Englehardt told people to be vigilant and warned "you never know what anyone's true intentions are" in a chilling Facebook post in 2019.
The 24-year-old was reportedly left for dead after being drugged and raped at her hotel room in Miami by two men, who then stole from her.
Evoire Collier, 21 and Dorian Taylor, 24, have been charged in connection with Englehardt's death in Miami Beach, as party chaos has led to more than 1,000 arrests.
A haunting social media post written by Englehardt has been unearthed in the wake of her death, seeing her describe an experience where she was targeted by a suspicious male.
The Pennsylvania native warned others to be cautious after she was nearly tricked by a suspected trafficking technique.
She told how she had been running at Tyler State Park when she saw a car "with a white T shirt hanging out the driver's side window."
"As I was running past him, the car started beeping at me and the driver waved his hand out the window. I assumed he was broken down and needed help, but my gut feeling was telling me something wasn’t right. So I kept running and didn’t stop," she wrote
Englehardt said she saw the car with the same shirt attempting the same motions again – and "I immediately knew that this was some kind of predator scheme."
She said she stopped workers, who alerted the rager and thanked her for alerting them.
"So if you ever feel unsafe in ANY way or have a feeling something isn’t right, DON’T hesitate to notify the police," Englehardt wrote.
"Always go with your gut. Please be on alert for any suspicious people or cars.
"This is a dangerous world now unfortunately and you never know what anyone’s true intentions are."
In a cruel twist of fate, Englehardt was allegedly duped by Collier and Taylor after travelling solo to celebrate spring break.
Collier told officers the duo had met Englehardt at a nearby restaurant, before giving her a "green pill" with the characters "a30" on it as they walked along Ocean Drive, according to a police report.
The result of toxicology reports are still pending.
They then all headed back to the Albion Hotel, where the victim was staying, and were seen entering the lobby at around 1am.
According to WSVN, a Miami Beach detective said: “She was actually staggering a little bit, and at one point co-defendant Taylor held her, behind her, around her neck, basically keeping her stable.
"We believe she was either intoxicated or drugged, and she could not give consent for them to actually go with her."
Collier confessed he and his co-defendant had both had sex with her, while suggesting Taylor had raped her as she seemed to be unconcious, according to the document.
Judge Mindy Glazer said in court: “The victim couldn’t even pick up the phone to call the police or 9-1-1 after they did what they did to her."
Authorities also said that the two men used credit cards they stole from the intoxicated woman to continue partying in Miami.
Both men remain in custody.
They face charges including burglary with assault or battery, sexual battery, credit card fraud, and petit theft, NBC Miami reported.
Law enforcement in Miami Beach has struggled to handle a massive wave of spring breakers flocking to the area over the past month.
More than 1,000 people have been arrested since February.
On Saturday, the city issued a new curfew, demanding that party goers clear the streets from 8pm to 6am. The curfew could last until mid-April.
