Law enforcement officials are trying to piece together Orsolya Gaal’s final moments

Police are trying to piece together the final moments of Orsolya Gaal, the Queens’ mother, who was stabbed, stuffed in a duffel bag and dragged from her home last weekend.

The 51-year-old mother of two had spent a night away before she was stabbed nearly 60 times at the family home in Forest Hills around 12:40am on Saturday.

Her body was found in the hockey bag half a mile from her home by a man walking his dog.

What happened in the hours leading up to her brutal murder remains largely a mystery.

Gaal started the day early Friday in the backyard of her Juno Street home, then headed to Manhattan’s Lincoln Center with friends that evening before being spotted alone at a bar in Queens later that evening.

Law enforcement officials believe Gaal’s killer was an acquaintance who did not plan the murder in advance.

4. Saturday around 8am: Glenn Van Nostrand, a local resident who walks his two dogs near Metropolitan Avenue and Jackie Robinson Parkway, spots the bloody duffel bag at the scene and calls the police.

Investigators are now trying to question an apparent ex-lover who knew where a spare key was hidden on the property and didn’t need to have entered the Tudor-style house. Law enforcement officials are trying to piece together Orsolya Gaal’s final moments
