New York City, NY: A woman was found dead in the bathroom of her East Harlem apartment. The NYPD has arrested her ex-boyfriend in relation to the killing.

According to reports, the Manhattan resident brutally murdered his ex-girlfriend with a knife and dumped her lifeless body in the bathtub.

Upon entering her apartment for a welfare check at approximately 6 p.m. on Tuesday, firefighters and police officers discovered 33-year-old Melanie Woods of Second Avenue with multiple stabbing wounds and a slash across her neck.

The city medical examiner ruled the death a homicide, and emergency medical services personnel pronounced her dead on the spot.

Her mother and a friend were worried when Woods didn’t show up for her aircraft to California, even though they had followed her phone’s location to her apartment.

According to sources, one of Rodriguez’s neighbors spotted him in the stairway at approximately 7 a.m. on Tuesday, while another neighbor heard a disturbance from the apartment before someone locked the door and down the stairs.
