New York City is getting ready to unveil its newest addition to its street art lineup, a mystery man who was identified after police linked him to a woman’s death in a shooting in the city’s Brooklyn neighborhood in November 2016.
Investigators say the mystery man, identified only as “D.W.,” killed the unidentified woman, whose body was found on Nov. 12, 2016, in a building at 15th Street and West 125th Street.
The woman’s name and age were not released, but police have said she was 28 years old and had a history of mental health problems.
D.T.R. is a black male who is described as “narrowly built,” 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing about 150 pounds, police said.
The unidentified woman was found with gunshot wounds to her upper body and her left hand, and a white powdery substance that appeared to have come from a firearm, according to police.
D’Angelo was arrested and charged with murder, armed robbery and armed burglary in the death of the woman.
Angelo was found wearing only a T-shirt, a sweatshirt and a pair of jeans, and police have not released his first name.
A description of the man has not been released, and it is not clear how D’Angelo became a suspect.
Police released photos of the unidentified victim on Monday, describing her as a white woman in her 20s with long brown hair and brown eyes.
She had been shot several times, police have previously said.
Darkside News reported that the woman’s body was in a trash can on the building’s first floor, near the stairwell.
