Three people were stabbed to death within a 12-hour span over Memorial Day weekend, the NYPD said Monday.
Cops found Deidre Borders, 56, with multiple stab wounds to her torso in the bedroom of her Staten Island home around 11:45 a.m. Sunday, cops said.
A second-floor tenant called cops to the two-family home on Osgood Avenue after not hearing from Borders “for a while” and spotting the woman through a window lying unresponsive in her first-floor apartment, cops said.
EMS responded but could not save Borders. She died at the scene.
Police believe the woman was murdered.
Later on Sunday, a 23-year-old man died after being stabbed in the stomach, back and neck outside 1129 Blake Avenue in East New York just before 6:45 p.m., according to police.
The man, whose name was not released pending notification of family, was rushed to Brookdale Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, cops said.
Another man was stabbed to death three hours later in the Fordham Manor area of The Bronx on Sunday, according to the NYPD.
The 37-year-old, whose name was not released, was stabbed multiple times near the intersection of 195 Street and Marion Avenue and died after being taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, cops said.
A 29-year-old man was taken into custody but has not been charged as of Monday morning.
It was unclear what sparked the fatal encounter.
