NEW YORK — An elevator operator at a high rise near the World Trade Center site was arrested in the slaying of a Dominican-born cleaning woman whose bound body was found stuffed in an air conditioning duct.
Joseph Pabon was taken into custody at 7:30 p.m., New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said. Police pulled him over after he left his Staten Island home in a car with two other people, Browne said.
Charges were pending, he said. Pabon's attorney, Mario Gallucci, didn't immediately return a telephone message Friday
Browne said earlier Friday that DNA evidence had linked the elevator operator to the killing of Eridania Rodriguez, whose body was found with a gold crucifix taped to her mouth in the Manhattan high rise where she worked.
