NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A New York City school teacher was found stabbed to death inside her Staten Island apartment Thursday afternoon.
Simonette Mapes-Crupi, 29, was found face down in a pool of blood by her husband, Jonathan Crupi, in their New Springville apartment around 1:50 p.m. Authorities said she was stabbed multiple times.
Interestingly, just a week ago, the teacher posted a near-death experience on her Facebook page, writing: “Crupi and I survived a shootout today…Thank God we are ok…To all the wanna be gangstas of Staten Island (who say they are from Brooklyn but really aren’t), be grateful you have what you have and stop trying to live a lifestyle you will never understand.”
Havia and other neighbors said the couple kept to themselves and were often seen walking their dogs in the complex, which sits next to a park and golf course.
Mapes-Crupi worked at a number of schools, most recently in East New York, Brooklyn, where she was about to start summer school.
ExSoldier's Note: When the sheep say things most un-sheeplike without thought for the possible consequences or even less thought for preparedness, things like this can happen. Ugly, tragic things. I feel bad for this lady and her family. It hits very close to home for me. I'm a teacher and I have seen this kind of thing before. Then there is my newly engaged daughter (TODAY!) who lives in Manhattan. She's no sheep, but she isn't allowed to really protect herself either. She's got to rely on being streetwise and the vigilance :ticking: I instilled in her to see the potential for trouble coming and avoid it. That formula has worked well so far. Her new fiancee is a marathon runner so he's in decent shape at least. :scruntiny:
