When is society going to realize intimate violence makes victims of us all?
Bloomfield confessed to police that he had killed Martin before he was charged, police told 1010 WINS.
Just before 4:30 a.m., police received a 911 call about a woman in a parked white two-door Honda CR-Z at Bruckner Boulevard and Brook Avenue in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx. The woman, Martin, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Bloomfield was arrested at the scene, and taken to Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center, where he was treated for an injury to his left arm.
The New York Post reported investigators believed Martin was killed in Bloomfield’s apartment, and that he brought her body to the desolate Bruckner Boulevard intersection about half a mile away, where he tried unsuccessfully to commit suicide by slashing his wrists.
The Post reported that Bloomfield was Martin’s boyfriend.
