Damn dude, was it that serious? She was someone’s mother, daughter, sister …
The body of a 49-year-old woman was found wrapped in plastic in her boyfriend’s lower East Side apartment Tuesday, police sources said.
The woman, who was not immediately identified, was discovered inside the Stanton St. apartment about 1:30 p.m., cops said.
“She didn’t go to work, the police came to look for her,” said neighbor James Hernandez, 35, adding that the woman works as a home health aide.
“She used to complain to her family about [the relationship],” he said. “The relationship was not going well.”
Hernandez said the 58-year-old boyfriend was trying to get the mother of two to move with him to Florida.
“He was trying to convince her to leave with him,” he said. “That’s when things got ugly.”
The city’s medical examiner will perform an autopsy on Wednesday to determine the cause of death, a spokeswoman said.
It was not clear where her boyfriend was when the body was discovered, but he was taken into custody a short while later, sources said.
“She was a working lady – happy and friends with everybody,” Hernandez said. “It’s really unbelievable. She always complained that he was very possessive.”
No one has been charged.
People these days have lost value of life. How will her children go on without her and knowing what this monster did to their mother? The justice system needs revamping ’cause jail time is just not enough. R.I.P.
