A female bus driver from Queens was fatally stabbed to death with an ice pick in her home early Friday morning, according to police.
The NYPD says that 66-year-old Rose Ragsdale was sleeping in her home on 105th Avenue in Queens Village at around 3:20 a.m. yesterday morning when the suspect broke into her home and stabbed her in her chest and arm. She was transported to Long Island Jewish Hospital, where she was declared dead.
The Post reports that the killer was masked, dressed in black, and left a bloody ice pick behind at the scene. Ragsdale's adult daughter reportedly heard her mother's cries and found her body at the scene. "I was supposed to go to work this morning, when I got here a quarter to six I saw this, [it's] devastating,” one of Ragsdale's coworkers told CBS 2. “She loved her job, she’s a hard-working woman, very nice, kind lady.”
No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.
