Police: Body of BX nurse found in Westchester

THE BRONX - Police in Westchester County say the body of a missing Bronx nurse and mother of four has been found in Yorktown.

Authorities say the body is that of 40-year-old Tina Adovasio. She was last seen leaving her home on Edison Avenue on Friday.

The NYPD has named her estranged husband, 38-year-old Eddy Coello, as a person of interest in the case. Neighbors say they often heard the couple fighting.

Coello, a former housing officer, has a history of alleged domestic violence, with two reports filed by Adovasio.

Authorities say Coello told them the two had an argument Friday, that she stormed out and he eventually called 911 to report her missing.
