The day after a Hollywood woman was found dead in her apartment, the apparent victim of blunt force trauma, police found the body of her on-again, off-again boyfriend dead of an apparent overdose.
Maribel Maldonado, 51,was discovered dead Tuesday, the victim of a homicide.
The investigation led detectives to Walter Rivera, 53. But when police arrived at his apartment Wednesday night to question him, Rivera was dead.
“He unfortunately took his life before we could get the whole story,” said Lt. Nicole Coffin.
