A Connecticut woman named Maxine Messam was brought unconscious to a hospital in the Bronx. The woman then died after she was unresponsive. NYPD thinks that something was injected into her buttocks. According to the New York Police Department, two women dropped off a 53-year-old woman at Jacobi Medical Center in Morris Park shortly before 2 am on Tuesday (16th February) and then fled. Medical personnel pronounced the woman deceased after she became unconscious and unresponsive. The hospital phoned 911 at 1:51 am shortly after the woman died and police were dispatched.

The woman was from Bridgeport, according to the NYPD. According to investigators, the woman had several injection wounds on both buttocks. She was nude below her waist and seemed to have been injected with an unknown chemical. The two women who transported the unconscious woman to Jacobi told while admitting her to the hospital that they found her near Woodlawn Cemetery and drove her to the hospital in her own car. Police said an autopsy will determine Messam’s cause of death.

Meanwhile, two unknown females are being sought by NYPD as they took Maxine Messam, 53, to Jacobi Medical Center in her own BMW SUV and then walked away leaving the car behind. The victim's startled husband Carlos Simpson told The Sun outside the family’s home in Bridgeport, “We don’t know what happened. She was at work and she left work. So we don’t know what happened from there.” Messam's son, who did not want to be identified, said, “Everybody is really emotionally damaged at this point in time. I would like to say something, but we don’t have all the details.”
