A 50-year-old Brooklyn woman was found stabbed to death just steps from her Sheepshead Bay home last night. Police say Larisa Komsky was attacked around 12:45 a.m. just after parking her new Mercedes convertible. Komsky, a single mother with an adult son who often worked late hours, was seen arguing with a man just before the stabbing: “It took her five minutes to park, and he hid behind the Lincoln for maybe four, five minutes. Then he went out of frame for 15 seconds, killed her, and he went to the car and took off,” a neighbor told the Post, explaining that his surveillance camera captured the murder on video.
Komsky, an accountant who ran her own business close to where she lived, was stabbed twice in the leg and once in the hand. According to the Post, she left a 12-foot trail of blood from her car to where she collapsed; she was pronounced dead at Coney Island Hospital. Police sources tell NBC that Komsky had been seen arguing with a man who followed her to her home shortly before she was killed. The attacker was seen fleeing the scene in a green mini-van. Her son said, "She was a very good person, no enemies."
Building superintendent Nadil Gjeloshi described hearing her screaming: “It was loud. She woke me up. I looked out the window. She just put her hands on that wall and then she started collapsing. I put on my clothes and then I came out. She was already on the ground. I called her name. I didn’t go close, but I called her name. She was alive. I saw her moving—not talking to anyone anymore. Nothing.”
