CANA News reports that cops have said that Vindalee Smith, who was just two weeks away from giving birth, was discovered yesterday on the floor of her apartment in East Flatbush, Brooklyn with a knife wound to her neck.
Her unborn baby boy did not survive the attack.
Investigators say there was no sign of forced entry, and no weapon was discovered in the basement apartment where Smith, a mother of four lived alone. The body was found by her landlord.
Pastor Ferron Francis of the New Dimension Seventh-Day Adventist Church in East Flatbush said Smith was expected to exchange vows with her beau at the small church.
Francis told reporters that Smith who was unemployed and her four children — two boys and two girls in their late teens and early 20s — stayed with friends.
