In the murder of Queens woman Orsolya Gaal, whose throat was reportedly slashed, new details emerged Friday after 44-year-old suspect David Bonola was taken into custody.

Last week, New York Police Department (NYPD) detectives fished out a pair of bloody brown boots. According to law enforcement sources and witnesses Friday, the shoes were found in a sanitation truck after it pulled away from the suspect’s home, reported New York Post.

Harry Maraj, a construction worker who witnessed the moment while sitting in Tropical Jade Roti Express on Liberty Avenue, said that it was in the afternoon that the "cops came and stopped the truck." He shared that cops took "some bags out of the truck and opened them up." He said that cops took a white bag from truck and a pair of brown boots, and that the "boots weren’t in any bag." Police officers put everything in "big brown paper bags and left.”

After learning Bonola had done work at Gaal’s home and had an intimate relationship with her, law enforcement already had him on their radar, said sources. The sources added that cops were surveilling his home and waiting for his garbage to be picked up so that they could look through it for clues. The boots, which the suspect allegedly wore while stabbing Gaal almost 60 times, were tested for DNA. They are reportedly a crucial element in the case investigators are building against him.

The Queens Defenders, which is a non-profit, is providing free representation to Bonola. They hired a private investigator who was seen knocking on doors near Gaal’s Forest Hills house Friday afternoon. On Wednesday, Bonola, a Mexican national and citizen who’d been living in the US illegally, was taken into custody. He was charged with murder, criminal tampering and criminal possession of a weapon. During his arraignment late Thursday at Queens Criminal Court, he was held without bail.

Meanwhile, Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz vowed justice in the gruesome death of the mother of two, reported Fox News. Katz said late Thursday that two boys are left without a mother, and a "young teenager faces the added trauma of being home when this heinous murder took place." She added that as alleged, the defendant stabbed Gaal over 50 times and then tried to dispose of the body by "stuffing it into a duffel bag and dragging it across a quiet residential neighborhood, leaving a trail of blood and a terrified community."
