A 51-year-old woman whose body was found in a duffel bag in Queens had been stabbed numerous times, according to an autopsy.

A medical examiner’s report released Monday showed Orsolya Gaal died of multiple sharp force injuries to her neck and her death was ruled a homicide.

Gaal’s body was found inside a duffle bag in Kew Gardens, beneath the Jackie Robinson Parkway, just after 8 a.m. on Saturday after a passerby notice blood leaking from the bag. Police said more of the victim’s blood was found about a half-mile away inside her home on on Juno Street.

Police said they believe Gaal was killed in the basement of that building before her body was dumped in Forest Park, but no arrests had been made Wednesday.
