As police search for a man they say is a person of interest, chilling details came to light Monday in the mysterious murder of a Queens woman, who was found inside a duffel bag.

Orsolya Gaal was reportedly stabbed around 58 times in the torso, neck, and left arm, and sources said that she had wounds to her hands. The wounds indicated that she probably got them from her attempts to fight off the attacker. A man who knew her and had access to her house on Juno Street, Queens, New York has been identified as a person of interest, several law enforcement sources told NBC New York.

According to New York Police Department (NYPD), the 51-year-old was found dead inside a duffel bag shortly after 8.00 am Saturday morning. After someone called 911 to report a suspicious bag with blood on it, the mother of two was pronounced dead at the scene. Fox News reported that NYPD detectives traced the blood stains some blocks away to a house in Forest Hills in Queens.

Sources said that the killer sent Gaal's husband a text afterwards saying it was revenge for her sending him to jail years ago, reported PIX11. Police believe that after she was murdered, the killer used her phone to text her husband and say "your whole family is next."

Cops questioned her son Leo, who is thought to have been at home when she was murdered. But later the 13-year-old was released without any charge. Gaal's husband, Howard Klein, and their oldest son Jamie were visiting colleges out of town at the time of the incident.

Before a video caught a mysterious figure dragging her makeshift casket down the street, the victim spent some of her final hours Friday enjoying a night out, according to New York Post. A source said that she returned home before midnight and a short time later, her killer arrived. Another source said that around 4. 30 am Saturday, "you see somebody rolling this (duffel bag) down the sidewalk from multiple cameras."

The source added that she knew the people she was out with, and that cops also have to figure out, "did she meet some mysterious stranger along the way?” An insider said that investigators found no sign of a break-in at the house, and that they believe the "suspect knew his victim and stabbed her out of anger."
