The family of a woman who was apparently killed by her husband, then had her corpse wheeled through her neighborhood says she was pregnant.
The District Attorney says there have been eight domestic violence homicides in the borough so far this year.
“This is a huge, huge epidemic,” said Director of our Staten Island Community Program, Amy Edelstein. “We offer support groups and counseling for survivors of domestic violence and we help them navigate finding housing,” Edelstein said.
And Edelstein says all the services are free and confidential.
“If you or someone you know is in a situation and you feel like you might be experiencing abuse, please reach out to us,” Edelstein said.
