Detectives Investigate Lottery Winner’s Fatal Plunge

February 15, 1995

NEW YORK (AP) _ A woman who recently won $10,000 in a lottery was killed when she was impaled on a fence after falling five stories from her apartment.

Detectives said 31-year-old Ramona Henriquez-Hernandez jumped or was shoved from her apartment Tuesday morning. Witnesses said she screamed as she fell.

Henriquez-Hernandez recently won $10,000 in a neighborhood lottery, and was robbed of $2,000 in December, police said. Police were investigating whether the same thieves may have attacked her again.

Detectives were talking to two men who dashed from the woman’s apartment after she plunged out the window, but no charges were filed as of early today.
