A 38-year-old pregnant woman, Vindalee Smith, in New York was found stabbed to death Saturay in a Flatbush apartment basement. She was killed a few days shy of her wedding and a few weeks before her due date.
The killer left a note, that was found under the body that stated more pregnant women will be murdered if the DC Sniper, Lee Boyd Malvo, is not released from prison. Malvo, 27, is serving a life sentence as he and John Allen Muhammad killed random people in 2002. Muhammad was executed in 2009. NY Post reports:
Typed in big, black block letters, the note warned that one pregnant woman a week would die unless Washington, DC, sniper Lee Boyd Malvo were sprung from prison, said a source familiar with the message.
But skeptical investigators believe the note is a ruse by the killer to throw them off track — although they are not ruling anything out, sources said.
