The woman who pushed and killed an indian man by pushing him in front of a moving subway train on Friday has been identified as Erica Menendez, a homeless woman who suffers from bi-polar disorder and has been charged with a hate-crime.
She admitted to shoving Sunando Sen in front of a 7 train in Queens to the police after getting a tip from relatives who led them to her.
She told the police her reasoning for pushing Sunando:
'I've hated Hindus and Muslims since 2001 since they put down the Twin Towers. I have been beating them up since.'
A Queens District Attourney said of the case:
'She is accused of committing a subway commuter’s worst nightmare."
Menendez reportedly went up behind Sunando and hit him in the back, forcing him to fall into the path of the moving train.
Her cousin told the Post of Menendez:
"All I know is that she's bipolar and as far as seeing the footage, I'm pretty sure it was her."
An anonymous doorman told the NY Daily News:
"I know her. . . . You could tell that something was not right, like she needed medication or something. It’s just very sad what happened."
We pray for the family of Sunando Sen.
