A bound-and-gagged 74-year-old woman was found dead in her Upper West Side apartment this week in what investigators believe may have been a slaying that occurred during a robbery, cops and police sources said Friday.

Victim Maria Hernandez’s sister — who found her badly beaten and injured body at about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday after going to check on her — said she had no idea who would commit such a heinous crime.

“She is the person that was very kind, loving, and caring,” Maria Terrero told The Post.

“She never ever ever had [any problems with anyone]. I think the person was looking for somebody else.”

Hernandez was left lying face-down on the bedroom floor of her ransacked home, cops and police sources said. She was gagged, with a sheet and clothes strewn over her body, and her hands and feet bound. Terrero said she went to check on her sister at the third floor unit on West 83rd Street after being told by Hernandez’s daughter that she couldn’t reach her mom.
