When 24 year old Priscilla Pimentel didn't go home to Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving, her family was worried. Her brother and sister went to her home at 102-9 87th Avenue in Richmond Hill and found Pimentel stabbed to death in her bathtub. She was stabbed in the chest and arms, her hands were bound behind her back and the body of her pet pit bull was next to her. A neighbor said, "Her sister ran out crying and screaming. I went upstairs and saw her in the tub with the dog." And apparently paint was found all over the room and on Pimentel's and her dog's bodies - possibly to hide evidence.
The NY Times reports that Pimentel had worked at as a bartender in Queens, but mentioned going back to school recently.
