Joe Fisher, 75, was last seen alive last Monday. It was the same day that Herminia Acevedo was in her living room directly below Fisher's apartment at 1268 Walker Avenue. She only speaks Spanish, but the sound she made in describing what she heard that day above her head needs no translation. "Boom!" she said, after stomping her feet to show what she also heard before the onomatopoeia.
In retrospect, she told PIX11 News, it appeared that there may have been a struggle and a fall. None of Fisher's neighbors seemed to know it at the time, but after nobody saw seventy-five year-old Joe Fisher for a few days, they went in to his apartment on Wednesday, and in the kitchen right above Ms. Acevedo's kitchen, they made a gruesome discovery.
