Police are searching for the long-time boyfriend of a Manhattan woman who was found dead in her apartment's bathtub with a gunshot would to the head.
NYPD officers responded to a 911 call of an assault inside a sixth-floor apartment in Washington Heights at around 10pm on Friday night, finding 50-year-old Ramona Rodriguez-Reynoso dead in her bathtub.
Police are now seeking Rodriguez-Reynoso's longtime boyfriend German Reynoso, 57, posting flyers in the neighborhood that describe him as a 'person of interest' who should be considered 'armed and dangerous'.
Rodriguez-Reynoso was found dead in a tub full of blood, and her head wound was so severe that police initially believed she was attacked with a machete, a police source told the New York Daily News.
