Married Queens mother Orsolya Gaal was murdered, and the police were unable to prevent it. The suspect, who had been released from jail a few days prior, stabbed Gaal, 51, to death. He had allegedly received a text message from Gaal, who had supposedly sent him to jail years ago and sought revenge. The information is from an unnamed police source.
Gaal’s body was discovered in a bloodied duffle bag near her home in Forrest Hills, Queens, New York. The police have taken her body and they have not yet arrested anyone for her murder. It is still uncertain whether they have any leads on the killer. This happened on Saturday at 8:11 am.
The police questioned Gaal’s son, Leo, who is thirteen years old, multiple times to determine if he was responsible for his mother’s death. However, they did not press charges against him and let him go after a few hours.
While the murder took place, Gaal’s husband Howard Klein, and her eldest son Jamie were out of town. However, her thirteen-year-old son was believed to be present at home during the time of the attack that led to his mother’s death.
According to anonymous police sources who spoke to PIX11 News, Gaal was allegedly murdered in her basement and her body was removed from her home in a bag. Prior to her death, she reportedly told her son that she was going out with friends, but sources suggest that she may have actually been with a man. It is believed that the incident occurred on a Saturday night.
The murderer sent a text message to Gaal’s husband using Gaal’s phone after killing her in a brutal manner “your whole family is next.” Howard was reportedly told by the killer “Your wife sent me to jail some years ago. I’m back.”
Gaal’s husband spoke to The New York Post shortly after her remains were discovered on the roadside “[My son] Leo is safe. Thank God [my son] is safe. There are concerns about our safety. Our lives are at risk.”
Moreover, the surveillance footage reveals a person wearing a hood who pulled Gaal’s body out of the house around 4:30 am. The bag utilized by the suspect resembles the same bag owned by the thirteen-year-old son, leading to suspicion that the killer may have taken it.
“Something is not adding up. But there are cameras along the way. They’ll tell if it’s an adult or a child,” the unnamed police source said to The New York Post. “She knew the people she was out with. We’re talking to them. We also have to figure out, did she meet some mysterious stranger along the way?”
Gaal’s remains were found by a Good Samaritan on the roadside. Upon noticing blood on the duffel bag, the Samaritan immediately contacted the police who received the urgent call at 8:11 am.
Amid a crime wave affecting all of New York City’s five boroughs, Gaal was murdered. It is hoped that the police can find the killer and prevent more violence against her family.
