Woman Fatally Stabbed On Homecrest Avenue


UPDATE (12:40 p.m.): A police source has confirmed that the woman died from her injuries. The source would not indicate whether they had a suspect, saying only that the investigation is ongoing.

Original post (apologies for the out-of-sequence updates):

We found the following tip (and above photo) from reader Kismet in our inbox this morning:

50-60 year old woman stabbed around 12:50 AM on Homecrest between U and V.  She had just parked her white Mercedes a few feet away from her building.  A van was parked two spots behind her with a male suspect inside.  He waited for her to shut her car off and approached the vehicle and stabbed her.  The man fled the scene.  She stumbled out of the car and yelled for help before collapsing.  There was a huge trail of blood.  911 was called immediately because many residents heard her.

CPR was performed immediately, once on the ground and once on the stretcher.  I’m not sure if she made it because she lost a lot of blood.

People are being questioned by the police now.

We are in the process of verifying the facts Kismet sent us, and finding out additional information. If you know anything, please e-mail tips [at] sheepsheadbites [dot] com.

UPDATE (12:45 p.m.): Kismet described the scene as emergency responders “desperately” tried to revive the victim:

I live 3 car lengths from where it happened.  I came out when they were doing CPR on her on the floor.  People said she died this morning but I don’t believe it.  You could see they were desperately trying to save her with the CPR, once on the floor and once on the stretcher.  The stretcher was covered in blood the moment they put her on it.  No way could someone have lived through that.

UPDATE (11:08 a.m.): We have confirmed that a stabbing did occur. More information is forthcoming.

UPDATE (11:59 a.m.): We’re hearing the victim did not survive. Still awaiting NYPD confirmation. In the meantime, here are two more photos from Kismet:

  1. Hope she’s alive and okay, injuries aside. If the story about the attacker is true, waiting and all, then perhaps revenge from jilted ex? Life insurance policy involved? The possibilities for motives are endless.

  2. there goes the neighborhood… things like that never happened 15-20 years ago. in the good old days people had class: you need a broad killed, you call your cousin Yuriy in Moscow, someone comes for a visit, and the broad simply disappeared. No one had to know, and no one was unnecessary traumatized.

  3. I haven’t heard anything new.  Everything is somewhat cleaned up.  You can still see evidence of the attack on the concrete.  Some candles have been left where she fell.

  4. I don’t know what her name was.  From what I’ve seen, it hasn’t officially been released.  I’m not really seeing news coverage on it online or on tv.  

  5. Her name was Larisa Komsky.

  6. My mom, who lived on Homecrest, corner of Avenue Z, passed away on Nov 1st…I have to go back down there to finish up many things for her. This scares me, because it change parking spots at night, have to walk to places on Sheepshead Bay Road…I grew in a the touch neighborhood of Crown Heights and never experienced this type of violence. I fear that there is a great deal of violence between Sheepshead Bay and Brighten Beach that we do not hear about. I wonder if this incident is not random, but was a hit. The car was not jacked, and nothing was stolen? Very suspicious…and what if they killed the wrong person….I have never been afraid to visit that area…although I had a car stolen and recovered many years ago..but this is bold and awful.

  7. What??????????????? You call that account of killing a woman classy??? I feel sorry for your woman if you have one.

  8. i’m glad studying your article. But should commentary on some general things, The web site style is ideal, the articles is truly excellent  Just right activity, cheers.

    thanks for sharing..
