The night before their wedding, all brides should be preparing for the day of their dreams in any fashion they deem fit. But, one woman might have been fearing for her life.

The horrific crime has no real suspects, but police grilled her fiance’ at the precinct, according to the New York Daily News.
The Jamaican born woman was a resident of Flatbush, New York, and lived alone, but has four children, two older, two younger. She was stabbed in her neck and left to bleed to death. Neither her, nor her child survived the attack.
