Husband absent as murdered WC nurse laid to rest
A 40-year-old mother of four, who worked as a maternity nurse at Sound Shore Medical Center in New Rochelle, was laid to rest today while her husband, who is considered a person of interest in her murder, was notably absent.
Family and friends wiped away tears as two Yorktown police officers escorted Tina Adovasio's body by motorcycle to her final resting place in Putnam County today.
Adovasio's husband, Edwin Coello, was not in attendance and is considered a person of interest by police. Coello was the last person to see Adovasio alive, and was the person who reported her missing to police after he said the two got into an argument in their Bronx home.
Neighbors say that the couple were always fighting, and that there were rumors of abuse. Adovasio had reportedly obtained an order of protection against Coello, but told her lawyer to hold off on filing it because she thought that she and her husband could work things out.
