    NY - Michelle Lee, 24, NYPD criminologist, brutally murdered, 27 April 2009

    Michele Lee was 24 yrs old and began working for the NYPD as a forensic investigator in September. She was found by her roommate at 8 a.m. on 4/27/09 tied to her bed, she had been burned on her stomach with a hot iron, repeatedly stabbed and had a phone cord around her neck. LE thinks she had been dead for a couple days. The roommate apparently came home on Sunday night, slept all night in the apt and went to check on Michelle on Monday morning finding her deceased.

    From what I gather I think LE is speculating that Michele had been dead even before Sunday night when her roomate came home. It says that she did not check in with Michelle when she got home Sunday night so she might have already been dead. I have not read anything about the roommates whereabouts Saturday.

    Oh my goodness, how horrible. Prayers for Michele's family and friends. I pray they find the monster who did this.

    LE suspected it was a sex related crime. The roommate had been out of town and got home late on Sunday and did not check in on Michelle. More info at link:

    It sounds like a personal attack instead of a sex crime (altho rape isn't out of the question). I am thinking stalker type instead of ex-boyfriend. The way she was bound, the burning, stabbing, and strangulation are all signs of the killer's rage against her for a definite reason in his/her mind, imo. The killer was making her "pay" for something. (It could be a female.) The burning of her stomach is significantly different than most brutal homicides. It was pure torture.

    Yes, whoever did this to her was ANGRY and wanted her to suffer. LE are checking out ex-boyfriends.

    I guess since the roommate did not seem alarmed by anything when she came home that there were no signs of a struggle elsewhere in the apt. How convenient this happened when roommate was gone......someone Michelle knew who knew that roommate would be out of town last weekend.

    How horrible for that poor girl. Based on the information in the article, it sounds like they have an idea who did this crime. They speciffically mention an ex-boyfriend that was recently diagnosed with cancer. That seems like too much information to give if it is not significant. JMO.

    This makes me think she knew and trusted the sicko who did this!...jmo

    There were no signs of forced entry, and nothing seemed to be missing, sources said. Nor were there any signs of a struggle, they added.

    I agree. It seems that someone wanted her to hurt before she died. I hope who ever did this is found. It is just horrible. It could be someone that she dated once or twice but didn't really care for that much and wouldn't date hiim again. Maybe he was crazy about her and wasn't taking no for an answer. Maybe he wanted her to hurt as much as he thought she hurt him. It's just hard to tell but boy someone was carrying around a lot of anger.

    I really hate to be morbid, but wouldn't the roommate notice a smell?

    exactly my thoughts.. I mean no disresepect but the temperatures in NYC have been in the 80/90 range for 4 days and the decomp would be accelerated as a result.. i cant imagine that the roomate didnt notice...
    However it sounds possible as if there was a personal relationship with the victim with no forced entry and possibly no evidence of a stuggle...and in light of the proximity the perp had to be in to the victim and the slow tortorous death
