THE husband of a mom-of-two reported her missing – just years before she was stabbed nearly 60 times and found stuffed in a blood-soaked duffel bag.
Cops revealed that Howard Klein reported Orsolya Gaal missing on May 29 2020 after she went out for a midnight stroll.
Klein called 911 just after 7:20am that morning after realizing Gaal wasn’t at home when he woke up, law enforcement sources told the New York Post.
Around half an hour later, he told police that his wife had been found.
Weeks before disappearing, Gaal posted a picture that appeared to show her walking at night.
The image shows a shadowy figure standing in the middle of a road.

Coroners revealed she had been stabbed nearly 60 times.
Police also discovered knife wounds on her hands and inside her fingers.
And, Gaal suffered injuries to her neck, torso, and left arm.
Cops believe the man killed Gaal in the basement of her home, put her in a duffel bag, and dumped her body half a mile away.
Officers also believe that the suspect knew his victim and stabbed her out of anger, a police source told The New York Post.
Chilling surveillance footage has since surfaced showing the mysterious assailant dragging a bag along a street.
The duffel bag was spotted by Glenn Van Nostrand in Forest Park.
His two dogs led him to the discovery and helped cops find a fresh blood trail.
The dog walker told the New York Post that he thought at first the slain body may have been a mannequin.
He said: “It didn’t look very fleshy. It was more like a crash test dummy.
“I thought it was maybe some equipment being used for something.
“I didn’t think anything of it.”
Cops didn't find any ID on Gaal when they discovered the bag.
Police said that the trail of blood led investigators to Gaal's home on Juno Street, just a half-mile away from the crime scene, according to the New York Daily News.
The alleged killer then reportedly texted Klein, threatening him: “Your whole family is next”, according to police.
An unnamed source told Pix11 that Klein also received a message from a sender who accused her of sending him to jail years ago.
No suspects have been identified as the police investigation continues.
Cops quizzed the couple’s son Leo, 13, who was thought to be at their home at the time. He was later released.
He told officers that he didn’t know where his mom was.
Cops revealed that Gaal told her son she was going to watch a show but met up with a man, according to PIX11.
NYPD police officials branded the case a “mystery” as they try to piece information together.
Gaal went out with friends on Friday night and cops are combing through surveillance video and pulling receipts from the places she had visited.
Her neighbor John Blankson told the NY Daily News that he saw Gaal and her dog walking around her yard that evening.
He said: “The sun came out, Friday was quite nice. We were outside. We didn’t speak to her – we were just chilling outside – but she was outside with the dog.”
