Woman Is Held in Death of Man Pushed Onto Subway Tracks in Queens

Source: New York Times

A 31-year-old woman was being held by the police on Saturday in connection with the death of a man who was pushed onto the tracks of a Queens subway station and crushed by an oncoming train.

The woman, who had not yet been charged with a crime and whose identity was not revealed, made statements implicating herself in the crime when questioned by detectives, according to Paul J. Browne, the chief spokesman for the Police Department.

Patrol officers picked up the woman early Saturday after someone who had seen a video of a woman running from the attack spotted her on a Brooklyn street and called 911, Mr. Browne said.

The attack occurred around 8 p.m. on Thursday at the 40th Street-Lowery Street station in Sunnyside.

3. This is going to be tough to prosecute

unless she confesses. If she's mentally ill, then there'll be questions about her competence to make a statement.

No physical evidence, only eyewitnesses to ID her, and a grainy surveillance recording. A good defense attorney could make the case it's mistaken identity.

4. She ran away....immediately!

She new she was bad....and in trouble. Mental Illness is not a freepass-get out of jail pass.
