In a shocking revelation, a neighbor of 35-year-old murdered Bronx mom Belkis Lopez has admitted that the victim's boyfriend, who they knew as Danny, had made wild accusations about Lopez. According to the neighbor Rachel McKelvie, Danny was crying when he went to her house to ask for her phone.
She said: "He made her out to be the aggressor. He said she was accusing him of raping both of their daughters. McKelvie, 55, revealed that Danny had told her Lopez did not like Black people or Spanish people. McKelvie said, "He used to say, 'She used voodoo. She killed people,'" according to the NY Daily News.
"He's a psycho," the woman charged, adding that Danny needs to be locked up. Another neighbor Jose Munoz, 55, revealed that Danny visited to hand him a laptop. "He knocked on my door and asked if I would hold this for him. It was a laptop," Munoz said, adding that Danny did not tell him the reason but was all excited. "He was looking weird. I gave the laptop to the cops," Munoz said.
Moreover, the NY Daily News report reveals that in April 2017, a case of harassment was filed by police after Lopez told officers that her boyfriend had threatened her.
