THROGS NECK, the Bronx — Authorities have identified the man accused of running over his wife and attacking her with a machete in the Bronx.
Victor Mateo, 63, is being sought by police for the death of Noelia Mateo.
Police responded to a call along Ellsworth Avenue in Throgs Neck around 7 a.m. Thursday and found 58-year-old Noelia Mateo unconscious. She was pronounced dead at the hospital, authorities said.
Police sources said the victim’s estranged husband ran her over with a vehicle before attacking her with a machete.
Victor di Cristina, a resident in the neighborhood, witnessed the incident and tried to stop the man.
“He ended up with a machete and he’s banging away at her with a machete,” he said. “I ran over there. I was about 10 or 15 feet away from him and I was screaming at him to stop.”
Victor Mateo is described to be 5-feet 9-inches with salt and pepper hair.

Thoughts? Based on local media reports, Mateo was still at large at least as of October 7th, 2019.
Obviously this is a shocking and horrific case. It seems no one in Victor or Noelia's family saw this violence coming and there 2ere no "red flags" according to the New York Daily News article. Although no one knew they had recently split. I know it is cliche to say this but it seems based on what's alleged Victor simply "snapped". However, that doesn't make him any less allegedly dangerous, and he still desperately needs to be caught to get justice for Noelia and for the safety of others.
