Woman Killed In Her Own Driveway While Her Granddaughter Was In The Car


Veronica Goncalves was brutally murdered in the driveway of her own home. She was the victim of a targeted attack by a person she had been in a relationship with for several years, Plymouth County District Attorney Tim Cruz said.

The victim’s nephew, Pedro Rosario, has told reporters unofficial details of her death and that the family is in a state of shock following her murder. What’s even more gut-wrenching is that he was not the only one left traumatized by her death. The victim was killed in front of her two-year-old granddaughter, who is believed to have still been in the car. However, the police have not confirmed whether that claim is true.

During such a brutal murder, many people are left grieving and questioning why there would be such a violent loss of life. Video of loved ones lining up outside the home where Veronica was murdered shows their heartbrokenness over her death.

Police responded to a report of an unconscious person on the city’s East Side and found a woman laying on the ground with obvious trauma to her head and face area. When the authorities discovered her body, Veronica Goncalves was pronounced dead at scene.

At this point, there are no arrests that have been made to bring justice to her wrongful death. However, there is a search warrant that is being sought by the authorities in pursuit of her killer.

During the investigation, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will officially determine her cause of death. This will be done in hopes to find more answers for the loved ones that Veronica Goncalves left behind.
