A New York City woman was found with a gunshot wound to her head inside an apartment bathtub—and authorities are now searching for the woman’s long-time boyfriend.
New York City Police identified the victim to Oxygen.com as 50-year-old Ramona Rodriguez-Reynoso.
Sgt. Edward D. Riley, a spokesperson for the police department, said Rodriguez-Reynoso was discovered unresponsive in her West 167th street apartment Friday night after police received a 911 call just after 10 p.m. reporting an assault.
They arrived to find her bloody body in the bathtub with injuries so severe one police source told The New York Daily News that they first believed she had been attacked with a machete.
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police are now searching for her boyfriend of 30 years, German Reynoso, 57, who they believe may be “armed and dangerous,” according to a police flyer handed out by detectives and obtained by The New York Post.
Police said Reynoso is being considered a person of interest in the case.
Riley told Oxygen.com that as of Monday, no arrests have been made.
The couple’s neighbor, Luis Garcia, told local station WCBS-TV that he heard an argument in the building the night of the shooting.
“I hear something like a noise. I was thinking it was a party, somebody crying…screaming, something, screaming like that,” he said, adding that the death had been “very shocking.”
Eva Diaz, who had lived next door to the couple and was friends with Rodriguez-Reynoso for 30 years, told The New York Post the couple were the parents of two grown daughters.
“She was a very good person,” Diaz said.
Former tenant Ann Guerrero also described the slain 50-year-old to The New York Daily News as a “very nice” and “decent,” person.
“She had such a great heart, I couldn’t imagine her doing anything to hurt anybody,´ Guerrero said.
Anyone with information about Reynoso’s current whereabouts is urged to contact authorities.
