92-year-old woman found dead on Queens street in likely homicide

A 92-year-old woman died after she was found was found lying on a Queens street earlier this week — and the death appears to have been a murder, police sources said Wednesday.

Maria Fuertes was found early Monday at Liberty Avenue and 127th Street after a caller notified 911 just after midnight, the sources said. She was taken to Jamaica Hospital but couldn’t be saved.

Video from the location showed that she made physical contact with a man at the location and that both fell to the ground as a result, the sources said. After a few minutes, the male got to his feet and ran away.

Investigators believe “she was either attacked or bumped into,” a police source said.

“It’s probably going to be a homicide,” the source said.

The Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the case a Cause Unknown Pending Police Investigation because of bruises and fractures the victim suffered.
