MOTT HAVEN, the Bronx — Months after a woman was found dead at a Bronx apartment, authorities ruled her death as a homicide Friday.
Police were called to New York City Housing Authority’s Mill Brook Houses on East 137th Street in Mott Haven Jan. 25 and found a woman unconscious and unresponsive, laying in the bathroom of an apartment unit, authorities said.
The woman, later identified as 37-year-old Jessica Springman, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
Springman was a resident of the building, but police did not specify if she was found in her apartment unit.
The medical examiner deemed her death a homicide nearly five months later.
No arrests have been made.
