Details have emerged about that early-morning stabbing in the East Village today. Police have identified the victim as Christopher Jusko, a 21-year-old who was stabbed in the neck inside a six-story tenement on East 7th Street between Avenues B and C. The body was discovered outside the building on the sidewalk around 6:30 a.m., when resident John Bonilla exited the building and came upon a trail of blood. "You’re walking down the stairs and all of a sudden you see that blood," Bonilla tells the Times. "And then I came out and found that. It was a bad scene to wake up to."
The Times reports that Bonilla didn't recognize Jusko and doesn't think he was a resident of his building. But NYPD sources tell the Daily News that Jusko was a resident of the building and that he was stabbed to death by a neighbor, who was taken into custody. Gawker has a very graphic photo of the body.
