Detectives are investigating the death of a Bronx woman whose body was found at the bottom of a stairwell inside an apartment building on Saturday night.
The grim discovery occurred at 8:12 p.m. on Nov. 28, when officers from the 48th Precinct responded to a home at 2173 Clinton Ave. in Belmont for a wellness check.
