Police were searching late Tuesday for a man who told authorities the previously day that he had killed his girlfriend in their Bronx apartment.
Authorities said they found a woman in her 30s just before 7 p.m. Monday inside her apartment on East 174th Street in Soundview.
Sources said man called police around 6:45 p.m. Monday from a downtown Manhattan pay phone, saying he had killed his girlfriend on Wednesday and gave them the address of the apartment.
He then ran off.
NY1 has learned the woman had head trauma and had been dead for several days when she was found.
Candles and flowers were left in front of the couple's front door Tuesday night.
"It was well known that they fought, you know. I didn't really know that there was any physical abuse," said one neighbor. "We would hear arguing, we would hear loud music, you know we would just think 'party.'"
"We know there have been a couple of arguments, but I never thought it would end up this way," said another neighbor.
By late Tuesday, the city medical examiner was determining how the woman died and sources said no arrests had been made.
