A horrible crime took place in Queens early Sunday as a pregnant real-estate agent was dragged screaming from her apartment and subsequently stabbed to death in the vestibule of her building. Witnesses reported how she begged for the life of her unborn child.
The killer slashed the 35-year-old woman’s stomach open.
Five-months-pregnant Jennifer Irigoyen shouted : “He’s got a knife! He’s going to kill the baby!”
Police are trying to locate Ms Irigoyen’s boyfriend for questioning.
A neighbor called Kristin admitted that Ms Irigoyen could be heard arguing repeatedly with her boyfriend and this time round she was “yelling … about wanting to protect her baby.’’

Witness Maurice Roman Zereoue stated : “I seen him dragging her down the stairs. I seen her hands hanging on to a hallway wall for dear life.”
“She was at the bottom of the stairs bleeding out.”
“She had a little dog with her, a pug I think. Its feet were soaked in blood.”
Ms Irigoyen was a classically trained pianist who sold luxury homes and also worked as a professional Latin ballroom dancer and Zumba instructor.
