Lucia Rodriguez, Missing Woman, 79, Found Dead on Fire Escape
We put up the APB on Lucia Rodriguez, 79, of The Bronx this weekend; she'd been missing since Friday. We regret to report that she has been found dead on the fire escape of her apartment building, two floors down from her home. She had suffered from Alzheimer's and apparently become confused. Friends and family had been looking for her elsewhere.
She leaves behind four grown children and a longtime companion, Marcelino Ayala, 73, who says he doesn't what he's going to do without her.
