Boyfriend of a pregnant nurse practitioner found dead behind a bush near an expressway in Queens has been arrested by New York police.
Goey Charles, of Uniondale, L.I., was charged on Monday evening October 27, with the murder of his 6 months pregnant girlfriend, Vanessa Pierre.
The first responders who found near the expressway, found bruises around her neck, leading investigators to believe she was strangled.
Pierre was found facedown on the side of Horace Harding Expressway near Bell Blvd around 6 a.m. on Friday, October 23.
The surveillance video shows the suspect dumping her remains. Pierre was dressed in pajamas with an orange shirt and a sock on one foot. She had a sweatshirt wrapped around her neck.
Charles and Pierre had been dating for about a year, according to their neighbors before the tragic incident happened.
The New York Police department on Tuesday October 27, released the video showing a man suspected to be her boyfriend, dumping her body before announcing his arrest.
“It’s horrible what happened,” Pierre’s father Herlin Pierre told the New York Daily News on Monday.
“She was pregnant too. She was six months — that’s what she told me. It looks like I lost two people. I was prepared to have a baby shower for her, and that’s the bad news I heard.”
