    That is so horrid. I'm glad that they have the suspect but I can't imagine someone ever doing something so horrible.

    Sending prayers to the family and loved ones of the victim.

    This is such senseless violence. I hope justice is served

    BBM, as someone who grew up taking trains and buses in a busy city to school and work, you will encounter crazy or just horrible people on the mass transit system, if you argue or have to stand near someone a little off hinged, dont stand right in front of the tracks. There usually is 20-30 feet of pathway for passengers to stand.

    Strange, my first thought was this sounds like something an angry woman would do.

    The perp lied about a previous subway-pushing incident:

    "In a bizarre twist, Liverpool-Turner lied to police last month about pushing a different woman in front of a train at the Union Square station, police sources said.

    She falsely claimed on Oct. 19 she was responsible for the death of a German college student who was struck by a train, police sources said.

    But cops soon learned Liverpool-Turner — who police sources said has a history of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia — made up the story.

    The 19-year-old student had been struggling with depression over a recent breakup and had actually committed suicide, police said."

    Melanie Liverpool-Turner, 30, pushed Connie Watton, 49, onto the tracks as they stood on the downtown No. 1 train platform

    had been arguing with Connie Watton, 49, at the Times Square-42nd Street station on Monday. The two did not know each other, police said.

    Liverpool-Turner underwent a psychiatric exam at Bellevue Hospital

    suspect's boyfriend, Olief Wilson, said Liverpool-Turner was taking to train to go shopping in Brooklyn.

    Two other women may have been involved in the incident, witnesses told the New York Post.

    three dozen police and other emergency officials responded

    Dozens of people are hit by New York City subway trains each year, although most of the incidents are accidental, according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which operates the system.

    Ten subway lines converge on the station, as well as the shuttle to Grand Central Station.

    ... Watton didn't have a chance to survive because the train struck her “mid-fall,” according to a witness who saw the fatal push.

    the housekeeper for billionaire Blackstone Group CEO Stephen Schwarzman’s family, his heartbroken daughter told The Post on Tuesday.

    Connie Watton, 49 — who was pushed to the tracks by a schizophrenic woman in an unprovoked attack Monday — worked for the business mogul and his family for 30 years, Watton was an honorary family member

    Watton, who emigrated from the Philippines at age 18, was a skilled cook who worked at the Schwarzman home at 635 Park Ave.After Schwarzman’s parents divorced in 1990, Watton continued to work for her mom and stepfather.....

    The couple even served as Watton’s stand-in parents at her second wedding, Schwarzman said.

    “She was sad because her own family couldn’t be there, so my mom and stepdad gave her away at her wedding in New Jersey,”

    Watton also took care of Schwarzman during a taxing pregnancy, cooking her meals while she was bedridden,

    Stephen Schwarzman’s son, Teddy Schwarzman, took to Facebook

    “One of the best people in the world, Connie Watton, was murdered yesterday,” he wrote. “She had one job for her entire short life — working in my family’s home as a housekeeper, friend and surrogate mother for the past thirty years.”
    “I never saw her hit the ground. The train hit her instantaneously,” said Peter .

    Platform screen doors are glass walls between you and the dangerous tracks in the open pit. When a train enters the station, it lines up with the glass doors, which open to let the passengers in and out.

    Is anyone else following the weird elements between Witton's employer (ruthless, super rich) and the fact that
    the accused has/has a fancy lawyer (with NY shady business and mob connections), rather than a public defender?

    twitter thread here (though bear with me, since this vbulletin formatting is the PITS for links and embeds and stuff)
