RAHWAY - A woman was found murdered insider her Rahway home.

Yolanda Vega, 35, was found dead after police were called to her Beacon Street home. A family member tells News 12 New Jersey that Vega was found dead in the basement behind a curtain. Police were called to the home at around 4 a.m. Monday.

According to a neighbor, there may have been a disturbance at the home Sunday afternoon. The neighbor told News 12 New Jersey that one of the deceased woman's teenaged sons ran to her door during the drama.

"He just ran to my house, and said someone is in my house with a gun with a mask on," she says.  The neighbor says the teen told her that he saw the suspect in the closet and ran out of the house.

Freddie Hernandez, the father of the victim's kids, had just dropped the kids off at the home in the afternoon when the incident occurred, according to the neighbor.

A $10,000 reward is being offered by Union County Crime Stoppers for information leading to an arrest and indictment.

Anyone who may have any information about the crime is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 908-654-8477 or online at www.uctip.org.
