The dead wigger and her black BF.
The Forest Hills mom found dead in a hockey duffel bag spent some of
her final hours puttering around her yard and enjoying a night out —
before video caught a mysterious figure lugging her makeshift casket
down the street.
Cops are trying to piece together how Orsolya Gaal, 51, went from a
well-to-do, seemingly typical stay-at-home married mom of two to a
“It’s a mystery,” an NYPD source told The Post on Sunday. “Now it’s
a question of piecing together everything she did that night.”
The source said that during Gaal’s final hours Friday, “She goes out
“We’re pulling video and receipts from those places,” the source
Gaal returned home before midnight and a short time later, her
killer arrived, another NYPD source said.
“[Then] around 4:30 a.m. [Saturday], you see somebody rolling this
[duffel bag] down the sidewalk from multiple cameras,’’ the first
police source said.
“[Cops] actually traced it backward from the scene to the house,”
the source said, referring to a blood trail from the bag.
“She knew the people she was out with,’’ the source added of the
victim. “We’re talking to them. We also have to figure out, did she
meet some mysterious stranger along the way?”
Gaal’s body was found with multiple stab wounds in a hockey bag, not
unlike the one used by her son, the second law enforcement source
Detectives have found no sign of a break-in at the house. They
believe the suspect knew his victim and stabbed her out of anger, a
Police on Sunday released surveillance footage that showed a person
dragging a duffel bag across the sidewalk.
A large contingent of police officers was back at the home, which
was surrounded by crime-scene tape, about 6 p.m. Sunday.
Neighbors of Gaal — whose body was discovered by a dog-walker around
8 a.m. Saturday, less than a mile from her upscale home — said they
were shocked by the violence.
“I saw her [Friday] in her backyard,” said John Blankson, who lives
next to the family’s stately, Tudor-style home.
“We share a common backyard with [her] dog,’’ the resident said,
apparently referring to an adorable little brown pooch that Gaal
posed with in a slew of Facebook photos on her page.
“[Saturday] morning, we were like, ‘Why can’t we hear the dog this
morning?’ It’s super shocking,” Blankson said.
“They were a normal family,” he added.
Gaal’s body was found by a resident who was walking his two hounds
in nearby Forest Park when the Rhodesian ridgeback dogs latched onto
the scent coming from the duffel bag.
The NYPD said Sunday that surveillance footage from the area
captured “an unknown individual” dragging a wheeled duffel bag from
the direction of Gaal’s home.
The hockey bag containing her corpse was discovered about four hours
after the person appeared on the footage, and cops followed the
blood trail from it to the side door of Gaal’s Juno Street home,
When police got to the house, officers found Gaal’s 13-year-old son
on the top floor of the home, authorities said.
“He stated he lives at the location but does not know where she
is,’’ cops said in a statement.
The boy was taken into custody to be interviewed and later released,
law enforcement sources said.
The high-up NYPD source added to The Post that detectives don’t
believe the boy left the house overnight.
Neighbors said the youngster had been scheduled to have his bar
mitzvah a few weeks ago but that the family had to cancel the event
because his dad contracted COVID-19.
Gaal’s husband, businessman Howard Klein, was reportedly in Portland
with the couple’s 17-year-old son on a college hunt at the time she
was murdered, according to social media posts.
Neighbors said Klein, the founder of RK Equity Advisors — a boutique
capital markets advisory firm focused on lithium-ion battery
materials — wanted his older boy to attend the University of
Michigan at Ann Arbor, his alma mater.
A source said Klein received a threat from his wife’s cellphone
shortly after the killing.
Klein told The Post on Saturday that he was on his way home, while
repeatedly saying the family’s lives “are at stake.
“There are concerns about our safety,” he said. “Our lives are at
Police said they previously responded to a 911 call at the house
after Klein reported his wife missing May 29, 2020. The husband
later told the cops his wife had been found.
The couple’s older son also went missing in July 2021 but was later
found about a half an hour later, police said.
Klein and the boys returned home Sunday, but it was unclear if they
had been questioned by police.
In a since-deleted tweet announcing his recent out-of-state trip
with his son, Klein also made a pitch for hedge-funder Bill
Browder’s book about Vladimir Putin.
“Just landed Portland OR before evaluating Ann Arbor again with my
17-year-old son,” Klein wrote. “Highly recommend ‘Freezing Order’
@Billbrowder a man I’ve followed closely and admired since I started
on Wall Street in 1997 broking EMEA & Russian equities to hedge
funds like Hermitage.”
The book is subtitled “A True Story of Money Laundering, Murder and
Surviving Vladimir Putin’s Wrath.”
Blankson’s wife, Nicola, said Gaal and her family had lived in the
leafy neighborhood for about eight or nine years.
Nicola described Gaal as “pretty calm, sociable.
“She was out there living her life and making sure her kids were
well-looked-after, like any mother would,” Nicola said. “This is the
last thing I’d expect to wake up to.”
Local Susan Ram added, “I was just watching ‘Criminal Minds’ and
it’s like that. This is [a] TV psychopath thing.”
Another area resident who would only give his name as Rick called
the whole ordeal “horrifying.
“I can’t even understand how terrifying this is,” he said. “It’s
very unusual to see this. I don’t know how this could happen around
