A suspect who has been linked to the death of a Westchester woman in 2005 and the murder of a teenager in the Bronx is reportedly being extradited to New York after being busted for a traffic stop in Florida.

According to multiple reports , Christopher Gonzalez, 39, is being held in Naples and awaiting extradition back to New York City after being pulled over for driving with a suspended license.

Gonzalez allegedly murdered a 19-year-old in the Bronx in 2000 and has been linked to the death of 25-year-old Angel Serbay in Yonkers, who was found strangled near the Sprain Brook Parkway in 2005.

On Sept. 3, 2005 at approximately 8:18 a.m., the New York State Police were dispatched to the northbound side of the Sprain Brook Parkway, just north of the Jackson Road overpass, to investigate the discovery of human remains.

A passing motorist contacted police after he observed what appeared to be a body covered by a yellow tarp discarded on the side of the parkway.

The victim, later identified as Serbay, was discovered wearing jeans, a blue, white, and black striped halter top, and black New Balance sneakers. The Westchester County Medical Examiner determined that Serbay died as a result asphyxiation by strangulation. State police have actively been investigating Serbay's death for more than a decade.

Gonalez is now awaiting extradition back to New York to answer the charges.
