Arrest made over body found in sports bag of 51-year-old Queens woman
Orsolya Gaal, 51, was found dead in a sports bag in Queens over the weekend.
David Bonola is charged with second degree murder, first degree criminal tampering and fourth degree criminal possession of a firearm. He was due to appear in court later Thursday.
Bonola confessed to cops after his arrest, a source added. Essig claimed that Bonola made “incriminating statements”. Thursday.
Essig said the investigation is ongoing and no suspects remain.
Authorities believe Gaal and Bonola, a handyman in the family, had an intimate connection, police said at the news conference. The couple had been “on and off” for around two years until Gaal was killed early on Saturday.
Investigators said Gaal went to a show Friday night and returned home at 12:20 a.m. Saturday, Essig said.
Essig said Bonola came shortly after. He was granted entry or used a spare key.
Essig claimed that Bonola stabbed Gaal “mercilessly and brutally more than 55 times”, killing her.
Then, Bonola allegedly put Gaal’s body in a hockey bag and “as shown in the video, he was seen rolling the body down the sidewalks, leaving a bloody trail through the streets of Forest Hills.”
A passerby found her dead in a bag just before 8 a.m. Saturday, Essig said.
A suspicious bleeding bag was reported near Metropolitan Avenue and Jackie Robinson Parkway, the NYPD said. Officers discovered a deceased lady inside a sports bag.
The blood trail went to 72-24 Juno Street, about half a mile northwest of the bag’s discovery. Gaal, who resided on Juno Street, has been identified by authorities.
The New York City Medical Examiner’s Office found Gaal died of neck injuries and murder.
Essig said Thursday that investigators found Bonola’s jacket at the crime scene. They discovered boots, a T-shirt and bloody bandages elsewhere. Bonola was later treated for hand injuries at a local hospital, Essig said.
Police also found the knife from Gaal’s alleged murder. It matched other knives recovered from the house, Queens North Deputy Commander-in-Chief Julie Morrill said.
Essig told reporters that police recognized Bonola while searching for video. To make “incriminating statements”. he voluntarily went to the 112th arrondissement.
At the police station, the suspect initially denied any involvement before admitting to killing her, a law enforcement officer told CNN. When authorities from the Queens District Attorney’s Office came to question him, he confessed again, the official claimed.
Bonola was known to service Gaal’s air conditioner, the source added. His wife and children would be separated from him.
