Pregnant NYC Woman Found Slain Day Before Wedding
Police and witnesses say a woman who was eight months pregnant has been found stabbed to death inside her New York home a day before her wedding.
Vindalee Smith was found inside her basement in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn on Saturday morning. The 38-year-old had been stabbed in the neck. It's not clear how long she had been dead before authorities found her.
Witnesses told the New York Post that Smith was supposed to be married on Sunday and that she had been living at the apartment for a few weeks while her four other children stayed with family friends.
They told the newspaper she had received death threats from a former neighbor at a previous address, but they stopped when she moved.
Police were looking for suspects.
