Orsolya Gaal dead news – ‘Murder’ suspect David Bonola 'returned to Queens home to discuss on-off affair,' NYPD cops say

THE suspect arrested in the Orsolya Gaal murder case returned to her home to discuss their affair, according to the NYPD.

Sources said that David Bonola, 44, did not have a premeditated plan to murder the mother of two, and killed her after their conversation didn't go over well.

On Thursday Bonola was arrested and charged with murder, criminal tampering, and criminal possession of a weapon, NYPD told The Sun.

Exactly what happened to the mom-of-two remains a mystery, though investigators suspect Gaal knew her killer.

Gaal sat alone at a bar near her Forest Hills home for 40 minutes on Friday before she headed to her house, where investigators now believe she was killed on the first floor, The New York Post reported.

Coroners also revealed that Gaal had been stabbed 58 times days after her body was found stuffed in a duffel bag and dumped near her home in Queens, New York.

The alleged killer reportedly texted her husband, Howard Klein, threatening him: "Your whole family is next", according to police. Klein was out of town when Gaal was killed.

    Bonola's messages to Gaal, conclusion

    In another Facebook post, Bonola wrote, "[music note emoji] Tu mirada enamorada", which translates roughly to "your look in love."

    The comment appears to be a reference to the 1999 song Tu Mirada by Luis Miguel.

    In the song, Miguel croons: "Your gaze in love / In my dreams entangled / It is passion wrapped in fire / Like wind through the flames."

    Later in the song, Miguel repeats: "It is passion wrapped in fire / Because without you I am nothing."

    "It was more like a crash test dummy."

    'You're running a huge risk'

    Robert Boyce, a thirty-five-year veteran of the NYPD, told The US Sun it "doesn't make sense" to him that the killer would opt to place Gaal's body in a bag and physically wheel it from the crime scene, instead of putting it into a car and driving away, "particularly when it's leaking huge amounts of blood."

    "Also, at that time of night, who is up?" he asked.

    "Being spotting pulling that bag behind you you're running a high risk of being stopped by police."

    "I'd have stopped them, that's for sure," he added.
