Followed home by her killer - maybe he forced his way in when she entered, hence no “break-in.” Makes more sense than ‘he had a key.’
Stupid is as stupid does.The Fugitive killer who stabbed Orsolya Gaal to death inside her Forest Hills home left behind a vital clue — a pair of blood-soaked boots, a police source said Wednesday.
Police are now running DNA tests on the boots, which cops found in a trash can outside the garage of the home where Gaal was stabbed nearly 60 times early on Saturday, a high-ranking NYPD official told The Post.
Police believe Gaal was followed home by her killer
Cops hope boots will help ID NYC mom Orsolya Gaal’s killer: police source
I'm not sure how these boots will help them identify the killer? Presumably they are covered in OG's (and perhaps the perpetrator's) blood, but so it the rest of the house and the duffel bag she was found in. The only way I can see the boots being helpful is if the police release a photo of them (or an identical, non-bloody model) to the public and ask for help in identifying them, particularly if they are of a distinctive brand/style.
They mentioned DNA. Do all arrested criminals have DNA on file these days? If that person had a criminal past, maybe it'd be a huge help. And as you said, definitely the brand/model might really be helpful if it's something unusual or someone notes is missing from their home in their spouse's/partner's/child's closet.
So if bloody boots were left in her trash (sigh - more sloppiness), what did the person wear when removing her body from the home? Came prepared with another set of shoes (premeditated) or got lucky and found something to wear in the basement that fit? Couldn't have gone upstairs to raid bedroom closets, right?
One of the ways Gannon Stauch's killer was located by her DNA inside her tennis shoe with his blood on the outside.I'm not sure how these boots will help them identify the killer?

Not sure. Maybe their blood hasn't been found inside the house, just hers? So this is the item they left behind that was noted earlier?Since 2012, any defendant convicted of a misdemeanor or felony must give a DNA sample to be added to the New York State DNA Databank.
But even if the perpetrator is in the databank, why would the bloody boots in particular help identify them if their blood is presumably already present at the crime scene? I'm not sure why the media is portraying this as a smoking gun.
Stupid is as stupid does.
Agree about the robbery aspect. This case gets more tv-like all the time. Let's send a fake text message and leave bloody boots behind! Hmm. Where are the clothes that were probably also bloody? Washed in the machine? Why not leave them behind, too? MOONot really.(50%)
May be the shoe was planted with purpose to throw off the investigation as with the text messages sent.
Edit: I couldn't believe it was a robbery as well because the prep would have gone room by room and found the son either sleeping or awake in the room if the prep did spend more than 3.5 hours there
Didn’t someone post an article earlier on one of these threads that said LE had questioned a teenage boy from the neighborhood? I didn’t have time to read it, but did y’all discuss that? That does look like a young person dragging the bag.
Leaving bloody boots in the trash AT THE CRIME SCENE, dragging a bag with body dripping blood all over the neighborhood in the middle of the night with cameras everywhere, those stupid texts—this had to be a teenager IMO.
