Woman’s dismembered body found in blood-soaked duffel bag in New York

A woman’s dismembered body was found stuffed in a duffel bag after a dog walker’s hounds spotted blood and followed the trail during their morning walk in Queens, New York City.

The woman has been identified as married mother-of-two Orsolya Gaal, 51. Her body was discovered by a local resident named Glenn Van Nostrand who called the police to the crime scene.

“It didn’t look very fleshy. It was more like a crash test dummy. I thought it was maybe some equipment being used for something. I didn’t think anything of it,” said Nostrand. The body was found near a popular walking path on Metropolitan Avenue in Forest Hills.

The police officers later followed the blood trail with the help of the hounds, which led them to the woman’s house around half a mile away from where the blood-soaked bag was found.
