Orsolya Gaal Queens latest: Suspect arrested in murder of NYC mother who was stabbed 58 times



220419 – Killer Sent Chilling Text Messages To Orsolya Gaal’s Husband

The suspect arrested in connection with the murder of Orsolya Gaal turned himself in and has confessed to the crime, police say.

Handyman David Bonola, 44, was taken into custody early Thursday and has been charged with murder, criminal tampering and criminal possession of a weapon, an NYPD spokesperson told The Independent.

Lieutenant Timmy Thomson said the pair had been in an intimate relationship for about two years which had ended sometime before the killing.

They said Mr Bonola had made incriminating statements, and they were confident no one else was involved in the crime.

Mr Bonola had carried out odd jobs around the property, police said.

Investigators believe the 51-year-old mother-of-two was stabbed after the pair got into a heated argument.

The killer then placed her body in a duffle bag and dragged it to a nearby park early Saturday, leaving a trail of blood that police traced from the remains to her home.
