A mother of two found dead in a duffel bag left on the side of a Queens, New York, road over Easter weekend was stabbed 58 times in the neck, torso, arm and hand, law enforcement sources told NBC New York.

Officials received a call about a suspicious bag with blood on it at the corner of Metropolitan Avenue and Jackie Robinson Parkway in Forest Hills shortly after 8 a.m. Saturday, the New York City Police Department said.

Inside they found Orsolya Gaal, 51, "unconscious and unresponsive," police said.

Emergency services responded and pronounced her dead at the scene.

The New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner classified Gaal's death as a homicide due to "sharp force injuries of the neck," NBC New York reported.

A trail of blood led detectives to her Juno Street home about a half-mile away, according to police.

No arrests have been made, but law enforcement sources say investigators have identified a person of interest who they hope to speak with in the ongoing investigation.

Residents at the home, including a 13-year-old were questioned by detectives, law enforcement sources said Saturday.

The woman's husband was out of town when her body was discovered and was returning to New York after news of her death, NBC New York reported.

"What a tragedy, just for everybody involved," neighbor John Blankson said. "You can't write this off. I think everyone's trying to figure out what happened. How did this happen? Why did this happen?"

Family member are usually the first to be considered.  That many stab wounds are a sign of a crime of passion.

And the blood trail came from the house.

That many stab wounds are a sign of a crime of passion.

It does look personal.

If it was a stranger there would be no reason to move the body out of the house.

People do dumb things for no reason at all, but panic. That said Occom's Razor seems as likely to apply as not.

UPDATE - 

David Bonola, 44 , arrived at the 112th NYPD precinct where he was interviewed in connection with the death of 51-year-old Orsolya Gaal and then taken into custody.

He's now facing charges of murder, criminal tampering, and possession of a weapon.

Detectives made the decision to pick him up and were in his neighborhood at around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday when he walked up to the officers and said, "I hear you are looking for me."

He then apparently proceeded to make a full confession.

Bonola had known Gaal from doing work on her house and knew where to find the key, allegedly enabling him to stab her to death while her 13-year-old son was upstairs, unaware of what was happening to his mother.
Police are still looking into the extent of the relationship between Gaal and Bonola.

Sound like, from the wounds, she was trying to protect herself.

If it is the kid can they try them as an adult? I was thinking the age had to be 14 or something.

A lot of rage had to go into that.

Kids younger than that have been tried as adults.  They usually end up in a juvenile facility until they turn 18 and are then transferred to prison, sometimes for life with a possible parole years later.

I dont think its the kid. I heard yesterday that someone sent text messages to the husband, after the murder, threatening the rest of the family. Possibly a deranged neighbor with a beef against this family.

They have arrested a 40 yo handyman who was caught on ring acting suspiciously.

Apologies y'all.  The ring part of my comment concerns another recent murder of two men.  Where the killer was also a handyman, he was the one caught on ring.

Here's a little update for ya:

EXCLUSIVE –  David Bonola, the handyman  arrested  in the grisly  murder  of Queens mother Orsolya Gaal, had been living in the United States in violation of immigration law when he was arrested, law enforcement sources confirmed to Fox News Digital on Friday.

Bonola  moved  to the United States from  Mexico  21 years ago, police officials said Thursday. They would not comment regarding the 44-year-old's immigration status at the time. But two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the matter told Fox News Digital that Bonola was in the country in violation of immigration law. Details of whether he entered the U.S. legally were not immediately available.

"ICE focuses its civil immigration enforcement priorities on the apprehension and removal of noncitizens who pose a threat to our national security, public safety, and border security," an Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesperson said in a statement in response to Fox News Digital's questions.  Fox News Digital is further told ICE has lodged a detainer with Queens Central Booking.
