Woman murdered in Astoria
From Fox 5:
A family in Astoria, Queens is in shock after finding their 23-year-old daughter dead in her bedroom.
Police say Carmen Saldana's mother found her lying on her bed on Sunday at around 9 p.m. Her feet were cold.
An uncle tells Fox 5 Reporter Linda Schmidt that Saldana looked like she'd been punched and raped. The uncle says her body was naked.
The chain lock on the bedroom door was busted. The light was on.
The family lives at 47-17 30th Avenue.
Police say Saldana's mother last saw her on Friday morning before heading to the Hamptons where she worked as a maid on the weekends.
The 23-year-old was a student at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan.
An active police investigation is underway.
The cause of death has not yet been determined.
