A pregnant New York real estate agent lost her life, and her baby's in a brutal attack.
As RadarOnline.com has learned, 35-year-old Jennifer Irigoyen was stabbed to death in the entrance of her Queens apartment this Sunday, February 3.
Police arrived at the scene at around 1 a.m. to find Irigoyen — who was five months pregnant — suffering from severe stab wounds to her neck and torso, the NYPD told PEOPLE.
Irigoyen was quickly transported to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center but was pronounced dead soon after. Her unborn baby also died in the attack.
While police have not identified the killer, Irigoyen's neighbor Maurice Roman Zereoue told The New York Post he witnessed the murder, and when he asked the woman if she knew the attacker, she nodded her head yes, but "couldn't speak."
Zereoue said that when the man came into the apartment building, the first thing he heard was Irigoyen screaming "He's got a knife! He's going to kill the baby!"'
"I seen sic him dragging her down the stairs," Zereoue told the Post. "I seen sic her hands hanging on to a hallway for dear life."
Zereoue's girlfriend dialed 911 as he rushed to helped her. By the time he got to her, however, she was lying in a pool of her own blood. Her small puppy, a pug, was standing over her, and the killer had already fled.
"I kept telling her, 'Hang on, hang on, help is coming," Zereoue recalled.
Jennifer Irigoyen is a survived by her 12-year-old son from another relationship.
