"She's gone. This is horrible. This is horrible," her boyfriend, Carlton Busch, told CBS2 New York.
"She doesn't have any enemies. She was supposed to walk the dog and supposed go to the store, probably get something to drink or something," he said of the mother of three. 
"People walking around with guns like this is the Wild West. I don't know what it is," added Busch. "To a woman walking a dog, no threat, he's a coward."
