Police Name Husband, Barry Wells, Prime Suspect, After His 8-Month Pregnant Wife, Toni, Was Found Dead

The two appeared to be madly in love, back in August the couple, Toni and Barry Wells made headlines after Barry tattooed his wife’s face on his back.

However Toni was unfortunately found dead this morning in a basement stairwell in Crown Heights.

According to the New York Post:

The pregnant 22-year-old was found with bruising around her neck at 9:50 a.m. and was pronounced dead. Neighbors were alerted to her body after hearing the echoes of her 2-year-old daughter crying.

Police believe that Toni’s husband killed her and Deputy Chief Michael Kemper, Commanding Officer of Detective Borough Brooklyn North, said they are treating the death as a homicide.

“Preliminarily, the deceased female has bruising on her neck and it appears as if she was either pushed or fell down the flight of stairs leading to the basement,” Kemper said. “Witnesses heard an argument and something falling down the stairs,” another police source said. Authorities are currently “actively looking for” 29-year-old Barry Wells.

Story still developing……

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.
