NEW YORK – Brutal, but true. A beautiful dream has tragically turned into a nightmare . Pregnant bride-to-be Vindalee Smith, 38 was found dead in her Brooklyn apartment from apparent knife wounds to her neck. Vindalee was scheduled to be married today and was 2 weeks shy of delivering her brand new baby, who did not survive.
According to Huffington Post:
Smith was found on the floor of her home in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn on Saturday. Neighbors said she had moved into the area in recent weeks. Her other children are older and did not live with her. Police said there was no sign of forced entry, and no weapon was recovered. Investigators were looking for a possible suspect and spoke to Smith’s fiance as well as friends and family. Smith had once feuded with a former neighbor who threatened to kill her, but it was months ago and the trouble had stopped when she moved to the new apartment, the Rev. Ferron Francis told the Daily News.
Our prayers are with her family at this time.
