What The Hell??? Swirl Couple Breakup Turns Fatal After Man Nearly Decapitates Girlfriend

- By Bossip Staff

This is a terrible tragedy. A 23-year-old woman died in New York City early Sunday morning after a breakup fight with her boyfriend turned fatal.

Neighbors say they heard Sarah Coit screaming for her life for nearly twenty minutes from the third-floor Lower East Side apartment she shared at 63 Clinton St. with her 33-year-old boyfriend Raul Barrera. Police say Coit was stabbed repeatedly at 2:30 a.m. Officers found her lying in the living room with her throat sliced open after receiving a number of 911 calls reporting the fight.

“She was yelling ‘No, no, stop, stop, don’t hurt me!’ ” said Brianna Andalore, 20, who was staying with a friend in the building. “My friend who lives here told me this has been going on for awhile, they’ve been fighting like that for months. We were watching from our front window, when she was brought out. The cops were yelling, ‘Don’t look, don’t look!’ Her head was almost off, her neck was wide open.”

“I heard her arguing with her boyfriend, it got very loud, she was yelling ‘Stop, get off me!’ Then she got real silent and I heard nothing else,” said Jason Figueroa, 15, who lives in the apartment above the victim’s.

Another witness, Joost Bohner, 33, who is visiting from Holland and was staying at 61 Clinton St., also heard screaming.

“I was sleeping in the back bedroom and I heard a lady screaming. I heard her yelling ‘Help me, Help me!’ ” Bohner said. “It went on for quite awhile, at least 20 minutes. She sounded like she was in distress. People from the building were yelling out ‘Where are you? What apartment?’ She never answered them, it was like she was in panic and shock. When she didn’t answer people started calling 911.”

Coit was taken to nearby Beth Israel Hospital where she died about an hour after arriving.

Barrera later came to the 9th precinct to turn himself in after calling a relative who advised him to do so. He told police the couple was breaking up when the argument broke out and quickly turned violent. He was taken to the 7th precinct stationhouse where he was charged with second-degree murder. Barrera was previously arrested last year for allegedly assaulting a man.

Neighbors say they’d heard Barrera and Coit fighting before, but never so loudly. Police had not made any prior visits to the address.

Coit originally hailed from Riverside, Conn., near Greenwich and a family friend told the press she came from a great family.

“[Coit] was their only daughter,” a family friend, who did not want to give her name, said.

“She was a great young woman,” she said. “They are wonderful people.”

Records show Coit’s father, Lynde Coit, is a prominent financial adviser. He and his wife, Anne Taylor, could not be reached for comment. Coit is also survived by two brothers.

Just crazy… A breakup should be something that two people both walk away from alive.

  • http://n/a Fly Gurl

    They had been fighting like that for months and no prior police visits? People please place anonmyous 911 calls if need be. You could possibly help to save a life. He obviously was abusing her for awhile with no intervention which caused her to lose her life. Domestic abuse is real!Its easy to blame the victim unless you have been exposed to abuse yourself. Hopefully, she is in a better place.

    • RN from La.

      Not blaming the victim, but it is VERY important for ALL DV victims to CALL THE POLICE and file a report

      U need to DOCUMENT everythg!
      As a nurse, we document all patient care to cover ourselves & our licenses

      DV victims need the documentation to save their lives or (if they end up dead) there will be a paper-trail on the abuser tht will show his abusive behavior which will look great in court

      And, I know its hard, but LEAVE. It will NOT get better by trying the LOVE the victim. If the abuser is not seeking counseling or other psychological help, the abuse will escalate

  • isaywutuscared2

    This is so sad. What took the police so long to get there anyway? With multiple people calling that man shouldve been arrested at the scene. That’s police for u they always a day late and a dollar short. They couldve saved her if they took domestic violence more serious. I bet if they said he looked like a cleb they wouldve got there faster.

  • boyaka2000

    It’s blacks man…

    Im white with a black GF… freak smacked me around last week, knowing there’s nothing I can do about it (cos im nice).

    Somethigns wrong in black culture.

    • 00000001

      Unless your GF is a guard at the prison where you currently stay ummmm… you know you can leave her right?

    • ohsotrue

      Sweetie, check your news this is going on in any culture.

    • boyaka2000

      I COULD leave her yes, but that would mean leaving my 14 month year old daughter too… which i wont ever do.

      So im stuck… and she knows it… thats why its so mean of her.

    • James in Deer Park

      ohsotrue, check your facts. White women who marry black men are TWELVE times more likely to suffer spousal homicide than a white woman married to a white man. Don’t fall victim to the politically correct version of violence. Wake up. Get educated. Live.

      He cut her like sliced bread! Have some respect..

    • Castilian

      NO, Latino men do not slice up women! We do not carry machetes like a third arm and stab people at the drop of a hat, that is what PuertoRican men do because they are savage munkees who belong in the jungle. This guy is 100% RICAN CHIMP!

      This nappy headed monkey is not a latino. Latino men are white. Latino men have fair skin and silky hair.

    • Sonja

      @palest latina you are a idiot. My ex is cuban and he is NOT white. He was born in cuba not like those “im a latino/a” but born in USA. So there are varying degrees of skin tones even in any Latino culture and yeah chica he is Latino mix!!

    • Palest Latina


  • Oooh Weee!!

  • Keisha

    Young white women need to understand that its a black mans dream to date a beautiful white girl. If a white girl gives them a chance and dates them black men feel they are on top of the world. If the white girl trys to leave them then the black man becomes violent and jealous and will surly hurt them.

  • exotica

    sometimes as women we need to respect ourselves enough to know that real love shouldn’t hurt. so sad

    • Keisha

      So true. I tried to expalin this to a young lady the other day and she said I don’t know what I’m talking about. Her bf will call her nonstop ask her who she is with. He is transferring to the same college she attends so he can “keep an eye on her”. When she is on the phone with him I hear him yelling at her and she is pleading to him telling him she did nothing wrong. She says she will marry him and have his babies and this girl is only 18. I think she is a dumb azz.

    Ahhh, Othello and Desdemona: A LOVE STORY GONE TERRIBLY WRONG! 😆

    • Isaidit

      One word OJ :o)

  • Keisha

    This reminds me of the interracial couple in Endland where the black bf threw acid on the white girl that tried to leave him. White women need to be very careful of these black men they deal with. Black men use them as trophies and to show-off.

    • LuLuBlonde

      Girl Im white, and all I have ever dated, since highschool, was black men…No acid or knives thrown at me. He clearly is not a depiction of ALL black guys. Most of them are actually really nice and sweet guys.

    • ThickLikeCornbread

      PLEASE stop with the GENERALIZATIONS

      ABUSIVE men come in ALL COLORS. Barrera is HISPANIC, btw

      We are used to hearing about White men killing their entire family, but I dnt characterize them as killers

      Stop the Ignorance!

  • DaJSUDiva

    Such a sad story to read.. but what bothers me the most is that people heard this poor woman screaming “help me help me” no where did I read in this article that anyone even called 911! I know people don’t like to involve themselves in things like this, however, if I heard someone screaming for help I’m callin 911.. My conscience wouldn’t allow me to sleep at night if I heard that cry for help and did nothing about it.. just sayin.. prayers to her family…

      Quote: People from the building were yelling out ‘Where are you? What apartment?’

      They were trying. It is hard to stop things that can go down in mere seconds.
