Sophia Lamb: Bronx woman, 44, stabbed to death in apartment
Sophia Lamb was a 44-year-old woman who was loved by her family and co-workers at Blythedale Children's Hospital in New York's Westchester County.
The Bronx woman was found unconscious in her apartment on Saturday, November 26, 2016, bleeding heavily from multiple stab wounds, according to police.
The victim's mother discovered the grisly scene when she happened upon the apartment.
"She came to the house and she saw the front door open," her stepfather told WPIX. "She said, 'WHAT?" he said. She soon discovered her daughter's bloody body.
Police say they want to talk to her estranged husband, 36-year-old Andrew Curtis.
Lamb's mother, Sylvia Malcolm, is the only one who has been able to shed a little light on the situation. She said that Lamb's husband was kicked out several weeks ago -- but reappeared Saturday at Lamb's apartment.
“He was just here yesterday,” Malcolm told the New York Daily News, adding that "He said, ‘I want to talk to you,’ and I said, ‘I don’t want to talk to you, but I forgive you.’"
Curtis immigrated from Jamaica, where the couple met about 15 years ago, the mother told the Daily News.
Lamb's father, Audley Malcolm, said that his daughter's normally cheerful personality changed once Curtis came into the picture. Soon his daughter confided in him that she wanted to break up with him.
“I told her, go to Immigration [Services] and cry like you’ve never cried before, throw yourself on the floor and tell them you’re not leaving until they come and take him back to Jamaica," he told the Daily News.
Police have stopped short of calling Curtis a suspect; he is officially a "person of interest" and law enforcement officials are looking to talk to him, but he has not come forward yet.
Anyone with information about Lamb's stabbing is being asked to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS or (888) 57-PISTA for Spanish, log onto the Crime Stoppers website, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) and enter TIP577.
