Responding to a 911 call, police officers found her body inside a bloody bag on Metropolitan Avenue near the Jackie Robinson Parkway at about 8 a.m. Saturday. A trail of blood led detectives back to her family's home a few blocks away on Juno Street in Forest Hills.

Police questioned Gaal's 13-year-old son but later released him without charges. 

Neighbors said her husband Howard Klein and their older son were out of town over the weekend visiting colleges.

There were no signs of forced entry into the home.

Klein told police that he received a threatening text from her phone after the killing, threatening the rest of his family.

Police were still at the family's million-dollar home on Monday morning. Officers were seen carrying out boxes and bags.

"She was a lovely lady, always very attentive to her family, her kids. Just an amazing person," neighbor Theodora Grafas told reporters. "She was really just wonderful."
