A Queens artist was found dead in her Long Island City apartment yesterday.
After 49-year-old Susan T. Woolf didn't respond to calls for several days, friends visited her 10th Street apartment and discovered her body in a pool of blood in the kitchen, with multiple stab wounds and packing tape around her neck. Police believe it's a case of domestic violence, according to ABC, though sources tell the station that they never witnessed any problems between Woolf and her partner, who apparently moved to the area in the summer.
According to the Times, Woolf specialized in bronze sculptures and jewelry, and was active in Long Island City's artistic community, participating in Open Studios events and serving on the board of the Long Island City Artists group. She wrote on her website: “As a public artist, I create site-specific sculptures reflecting my love of nature and fascination with debris. Constructed of bronze to last for ages, or a temporary piece filling cracks in the sidewalk with bright red leaves, I observe how a place joins or collides with environmental, visual and social patterns. I make sculptures describing place to accentuate the beauty in every location and build bridges between people and their surroundings."
