Circumstances of Discovery

The victim was found on the street between two parked cars west of 617 141st Street near a residential building in Hamilton Heights. A tenant in the building rented a room from apartment 64 to three men so they could “party and have sex” with the decedent. An argument broke out, the victim was strangled, and the tenant was forced to help wrap the body and leave it on the street with the garbage.

She was remembered in the neighborhood as a local woman who spoke Spanish with a Dominican accent. She may have gone by the name Julissa.
