Police are on the lookout for the ex-handyman who stabbed a mother-of-2 to death in her basement at her family home.
Orsolya Gaal, who suffered from nearly 60 stab wounds, including deep slashes to her throat and defense wounds to her hands, was found dead on Saturday (April 16).
Her body was put into a bag and then she was dragged several miles away. Her killer left blood trails from the bag.
Sources claim that the mother had told her son she was going out with friends instead of telling him that she was with another man.
Cops are now asking her to answer questions about her former handyman, who was intimately familiar with her home and details like where the family kept a spare keys.
According to law enforcement sources, it comes after he began a relationship romantically with Gaal, before the affair went sour.
New York Post reports that it is now confirmed that he was not officially identified as a person-of-interest or suspect in the brutal shooting.
Sources say that it is not clear when the couple’s relationship began or ended, but it is believed that he would be able to gain entry to the house without breaking into it.
Due to the violence of the crime, authorities believe that Gaal was the victim and that the attacker knew Gaal. They also suspect that the attack on Gaal was personal.
The deadly attack didn’t seem planned.
An anonymous source of law enforcement said: “[Detectives] don’t think it was a planned murder,”A law enforcement source stated that.
“He left a blood trail for five blocks from the house,”According to the source.
“It was like a trail of bread crumbs.
“If you want to kill somebody, you try to make it a little cleaner, be a little more prepared. He didn’t go with something to move her body. He took something from the house.
“I’m sure with that kind of blood, there’s lots of DNA there,”The source also said. “The killer’s DNA has gotta be in that blood. It’s not a clean scene.”
It has been reported that Gaal’s 13-year-old son was home when the police arrived to the property on Saturday morning after the body was discovered.
Her husband and 17-year-old son were on a college tour at the time of the incident.
