NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) –Sources tell CBS 2 that a note was found next to the body of apregnant Brooklyn mother of four who was found stabbed to death in her apartment Saturday.
Meanwhile, Anthony Jackman, the fiancé of the victim – Vindalee Smith, 38 – has been arrested and charged, but not in connection with the woman’s death.
The New York City Medical Examiner’s office ruled Smith’s death a homicide. Autopsy results were released Sunday.
Sources said the type-written note found next to her body referenced Beltway sniper Lee Boyd Malvo.
“It said ‘I will kill one pregnant woman a month starting now until Lee Boyd Malvo is set free,’” NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne told WCBS 880?s Alex Silverman. “We haven’t determined whether this note is just a ruse to try to throw detectives off.”
