The neighbor of a young woman who was found dismembered in her apartment said he would often hear her fight with her boyfriend and, on one occasion, see a trail of blood coming out of her door.
The unnamed woman’s body was found in two separate suitcases in her blood-stained apartment 6F in Linwood Park Apartments, an affordable residential building in East New York, Brooklyn.
The 21-year-old victim, who has yet to be identified, had filed a protection order against her estranged boyfriend before she was found dead, according to police. NY Daily News.
The neighbor, who did not give his name, said he had heard commotion from her apartment about a week ago and a trail of blood from her door.
“I just got home from work, I’m going upstairs, I see a whole blood trail, a lot of blood, just from her apartment to the front door,” he said.

“Downstairs they are arguing, fighting, and as soon as the police come they go back upstairs into her apartment and the police knock and knock and nobody opens the door.”
“The police came here about six times and all six times the same.”
“Usually it’s at night when you hear things like this. I think it’s a normal thing that got out of hand one day.
The young woman was heard in the building weeks before her disappearance while arguing with ex-boyfriend – who is still at large.
He is now a person of interest in the investigation. Part of the protection order meant that he was not allowed to be in her apartment.
She hadn’t been seen for several weeks before neighbors noticed a foul smell coming from the house on Wednesday.
One called the building’s supermarket to request a welfare check, leading to the grim discovery in the early hours of Thursday morning.
