Eleven stories below, police found the family’s dog, a poodle named Gigi, on the pavement. It has yet to be determined whether the dog was thrown or fell from the window.
The woman has been identified by police as 58-year-old Donna Hyman. According to police, she was a resident of the apartment in which she was fatally stabbed. It is not yet clear whether or not the son lived in the apartment with her.
Police responded to a call at 1500 Hornell Loop in Starrett City around 7 p.m. Friday. Upon arrival, they found two people with multiple stab wounds to their torsos. Hyman was pronounced dead at the scene.
“She was a very kind person. She really loved the dog. Heartbroken this happened,” said Hyman’s neighbor identified only as Lina. She says her dog played with Gigi.
“I screamed to the top of my lungs when I found out it was her,” Lina said.
Hyman’s 36-year-old son has yet to be identified. He remains in the hospital in critical condition, police say.
Starrett City residents are reeling in the aftermath of the fatal stabbing that occurred in their community.
“We didn’t hear no arguing or anything or anything like that. This is so overwhelming. It’s right there, right next door,” said one resident.
The stabbing remains under investigation. No arrests have been made.
This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
