Christopher Gonzalez is suspected of two New York killings, police stated.

A suspect within the 2005 strangling dying of a Yonkers lady has been arrested in Florida and is awaiting extradition to New York for a special murder, police stated.

Christopher Gonzalez, 36, was needed by the NYPD for allegedly killing a lady within the Bronx in 2000. The NYPD confirmed that he’s additionally a suspect in the killing of Angel Serbay, 25, whose body was found on the shoulder of the Sprain Brook Parkway in Greenburgh on Sept. 3, 2005. 

Gonzalez, a married man who worked at Toys R Us, was arrested on Tuesday while driving in Naples, Florida, around the corner from his home, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office said. Police said a detective saw Gonzalez and knew that he did not have a driver’s license.

Gonzalez was charged with driving without a license, a second offense. In addition to the NYPD warrant for the second-degree murder charge, Gonzalez, a New York native, has another warrant in New York and a warrant for his arrest in North Carolina, police said.

New York state police have been investigating the killing of Serbay, but they could not be reached for comment today.

Serbay was found wrapped in a blanket and dumped on the side of the Sprain Brook Parkway just north of Jackson Avenue. Investigators said at the time that she was strangled that morning or the night before in Yonkers and that her killer drove her body to where it was later spotted by a passing driver.

Serbay, who had a son, grew up in Yonkers and, following a brief relocation to Florida, was living in the city at the time of her death. She had minor run-ins with the law during her time in Yonkers and a history of drug use, her family said at the time.

“I certainly want the people who did this caught,” her mother, Susan Serbay, told The Journal News/lohud in 2006. “But I’m not out for revenge.”

The NYPD said its murder charge against Gonzalez involves the killing of Dora Almoteser, 19, who was found strangled in a Bronx apartment in 2000.
