Bloody fingerprints were found at the scene of the murder of Vindalee Smith, 38, a pregnant bride-to-be from Brooklyn, which could lead to her killer.
Smith was found stabbed to death in her Flatbush apartment Saturday - a day before she was set to marry Anthony Jackman, 33.
This new evidence will most likely lead police to her killer.
As reported by the New York Daily News:
The letter -- a computer printout signed by “the apprentice” and marked with a smiley face -- says a pregnant woman will die each month unless authorities release Lee Boyd Malvo, the Washington, D.C., sniper, sources said.
“I will kill 1 (cq) pregnant woman a month starting now until Lee Boyd Malvo is set free!” It was signed “the apprentice” with a smiley face.
Tests are now being done on the blood and the fingerprints.
Two sources said the blood at the scene might come from more than one person--raising the possibility that the killer was wounded in the attack.
Police have not named a suspect in Smith’s murder, but are taking a hard look at Smith’s fiancé Jackman, who has 14 prior arrests on his record, 11 of which are sealed.
The charges range from petty larceny, burglary and weapons possession, to unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.
As recently as Saturday, police arrested Jackman for the 15th time for a forged license plate in the back window of his 1998 BMW.
