BRONX, NEW YORK, December 17- Detectives continue to investigate the horrific and brutal murder of a woman, stabbed to death along Baychester Avenue.

Calls to 911 were received after the woman was found face-first on the sidewalk outside of 4436 Baychester Avenue, at 9:30 a.m., on Sunday, December 16.

The unresponsive woman was rushed to Montefiore Hospital North, but succumbed to her injuries.

Police identified the victim as Maxine Martinez, 44, who lived around the corner on Nereid Avenue.

Neighborhood resident Andrew Fenton, 25, who discovered the gruesome scene, recalled, "I came out, I just saw this lady face-down with blood everywhere. She was cut up pretty bad."

Fenton, who watched as paramedics tried frantically to revive the woman, added, "Something like this, in this neighborhood, someone just lying in the street, it makes me feel mad. It's crazy."

Because police had no witnesses to the incident, detectives at first were unsure if it was the result of an assault or a car accident on the busy street.

However, police now say that Martinez was stabbed multiple times in her back and head and the incident has been deemed a homicide.

Anyone with any information are asked to call CrimeStoppers at (800) 577-TIPS, all calls remain confidential.
