Wake held for pregnant Mt. Vernon woman

Posted: Updated:

Friends and family gathered in Mount Vernon today to say farewell to Gizela Andrade, who was found dead in her car in the Bronx Tuesday night.

Police say 31-year-old Andrade, who was diabetic and pregnant, was missing for nearly two weeks. They say she was found dead of an apparent insulin overdose in her car outside the NYPD's Bronx narcotics headquarters.

Family and friends say they wonder how Andrade and her car could have sat there unnoticed for so long.

Police say the car had tinted windows and police could not see the body inside.

Investigators say while they believe there was no foul play in her death, the investigation into how long her car was there and why no one noticed it is ongoing.
