A mom from Queens was stabbed 60 times on Saturday by a vengeful killer who stuffed her body into a duffel bag and wheeled her down the street before sending a series of chilling texts to the woman’s husband, warning “your whole family is next”.
Cops pronounced Orsolya Gaal, 51, dead at the scene as they followed a trail of blood leading to the horrifying discovery of Gaal’s butchered remains. A member of the public had called 911 after seeing blood on the outside of the bag which had been dumped near a walking path.
NYPD officers tracked the blood trail for several blocks to a house in Forest Hills in Queens.
They believe the mom, who was originally from Hungary, had been on a night out that Friday evening before she was murdered in the basement of her home. The suspected killer, who is still unidentified, was captured on CCTV wheeling her body away in the hockey-style duffel bag, which cops found at around 8:00 AM Saturday morning.
According to the New York Post, Gaal’s husband Howard Klein, who runs an equities advisory company, was out of town visiting business colleagues with their eldest son Jamie when the murder took place.
Their youngest child, Leo, 13, was in the family’s $2 million home when his mother was killed. He was questioned by the police but later released. Both boys attended Townsend Harris High School, a public school around 4 miles from the family home.
