SHENANDOAH — State police are looking for a man who troopers in Schuylkill County believe killed a woman in Shenandoah.
Authorities said Luis Ramos Nunez-Calderon, 41, is wanted on homicide charges.
The victim was identified by the coroner as Wendy C. Hernandez, 39, of Shenandoah. Troopers originally identified the victim as Wendy Contreras.
The coroner said she died from cuts to the neck and listed the death as a homicide.
Nunez-Calderon is originally from Bronx, New York.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call state police at Frackville at 570-874-5300.
Troopers tell us that Shenandoah police were called to apartment at 518 West Centre Street around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday and found a woman dead inside.
The Schuylkill County coroner’s office and detectives from the Schuylkill County district attorney’s office were also called to the scene.
Police are not releasing any more information on the victim or details of her death.
However, troopers were in Shenandoah, interviewing neighbors for hours and say if anyone noticed anything out of the ordinary or suspicious to contact state police at Frackville.
Newswatch 16 talked with a woman at the scene who said she was on Centre Street earlier in the day and saw man and woman fighting outside that apartment.
“They were fighting and they were like arguing and I guess because they were together she broke up with him and he had dragged her in the house by her hair,” said Nicole Brobst of Shenandoah. “Then I went home because I had to take my son home so I didn’t see anything after that.”
After talking with Newswatch 16, that witness then spoke with troopers to relay that same information to investigators.
Neighbors of the victim are concerned because the suspect is still on the loose.
