Jealous Husband Stabs His Wife in a Beauty Salon and then LAYS on Her Body!
A 35-year-old woman, identified by friends and police sources as Iris Rodriguez, was working inside the Tu S’tilo Salon and Spa on 37th Ave. by 93rd St. in Jackson Heights at about 7 p.m. when her husband attacked her.
Witnesses say that Rodriguez's estranged husband stormed into the salon and attacked her in front of everyone. He lunged toward her, stabbing her several times in the chest.
One witness caught the aftermath on video showing the victim's 39-year-old husband laying on top of her body, clutching her and crying.
When officers arrived he was STILL sprawled out on top of her.
According to NY Daily News:
"Rodriguez and her husband split after about four years of marriage in January, but he became jealous when he saw her talking with other men, said one of her friends, who only gave her first name, Rosa. After they separated, he started calling her cell phone.
“She said that he was aggressive, and she was a little scared, but never enough to think this [would happen],” Rosa said. "She said he wanted her to live with him but she said she didn’t want to be with him. She said she didn’t want him to know where she lived.”
“Such a good person she was,” Rosa said, wiping away tears after learning Rodriguez died in the hospital. “A really good mother. She loved her children. She would do everything for them.”
She was rushed to NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst where she was pronounced deceased. Iris Rodriguez leaves behind two young sons, one who is eight and the other who is just a toddler.
Her husband, who gave no motive for his attack, was taken to the hospital and treated for lacerations but will be taken into police custody.
