    NY - Vindalee Smith, 38, pregnant, murdered in her Brooklyn home, 21 Oct 2012

    http://centurylink.net/news/read.php...&cps=0&lang=en

    NEW YORK (AP) — A woman who was eight months pregnant was found stabbed to death Saturday in her apartment, the day before her wedding, police said.

    Vindalee Smith, 38, was found on the floor of her apartment in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn with a gaping wound in her neck. It wasn't clear how long she'd been dead before the body was discovered by her landlord. Her unborn child did not survive.

    There was no sign of forced entry, and no weapon was recovered, police said. Investigators are looking for a possible suspect. They interviewed her friends and family, and spoke to her fiance...........more at link....

    Agreed. If there were no signs of struggle on her body then it'd definitely have to be someone close to her.

    What the heck??

    "A note found under the pregnant mother who was fatally stabbed the day before her wedding demanded the release of the "D.C. Sniper" — and included threats to kill more pregnant women if the serial killer wasn't set free, according to a published report."

    Thanks....very weird....Also at your link:

    But investigators told the newspaper there’s no apparent connection between Smith or Malvo, and that the note may be a ruse by her killer to distract them.

    The NYPD could not immediately confirm the existence of the note................

    Police spent Sunday questioning Smith’s fiancé, Anthony Jackman, who sources said is still married, according to the Post.

    If her fiance was "still married", how were THEY going to get married the next day? I am betting the note was a distraction by whoever killed.

    Police: Slain NYC woman's fiance was still married

    Smith, a devout Seventh-Day Adventist, had been planning to marry Anthony Jackman on Sunday in a small ceremony at her church. Most of her friends said they had not known her fiance long, if at all, and some didn't know his name.

    But she could not have married Jackman legally because he has a wife in New Jersey. Police said the two are estranged, with Jackman living with his mother during the week and the wife living in their former home.

    Yeah, I don't know, I am suspicious.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Presumed fiance questioned in death of bride-to-be

    http://edition.cnn.com/2012/10/22/ju...?iref=obinsite

    ............NYPD spokesman Paul J. Browne confirmed the existence and content of the note, saying the entire message was typed in white on a black background, framed with a white border and signed "The Apprentice" with a smiley face.

    Browne said the note is being analyzed as a possible ruse planted to confuse investigators.

    Browne would not name the suspect but said the man had "put himself at Smith's apartment" around the time of the murder.

    "We're looking at a man who was in a relationship with a pregnant woman who believed he was going to marry her."...............

    The unidentified man was arrested and is being held for having a forged temporary-paper-license on the car he was driving.............more at link.....
