A pregnant real-estate agent in Queens was stabbed to death in the vestibule of her building early on Sunday.

The attacker pulled 35-year-old Jennifer Irigoyen from her Ridgewood apartment and into the building’s entranceway around 1 a.m., according to the New York Post. Police are looking into her death as a domestic incident and seeking her boyfriend for questioning.

Irigoyen, who was five months pregnant, was stabbed multiple times in her neck and in the left side of her stomach.

She was a broker and human resources manager at Crosstown Apartments, where she sold homes in Queens and on the Upper East Side and Upper West Side. She previously worked as a Zumba and Latin ballroom instructor, and she was also a classically trained pianist.

She was taken to Wyckoff Hospital but did not make it in time to be saved. She left behind a 12-year-old son from a prior relationship, and his father is not a suspect in her death.

A police source described the victim’s boyfriend as “definitely a person of interest.”

“Don’t you think if your girlfriend got stabbed, you’d go to the police and say, ‘What happened?’” he said. “Well, he hasn’t come to us yet.” [NYP] – Eddie Small
