NYPD probe double stabbing; suspect in Russia
SHEEPSHEAD BAY (WABC) -- The NYPD must collect more evidence in the fatal stabbing of a woman and her daughter before seeking help in locating the suspect who fled to Russia.
Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly on Wednesday says investigators do not yet have probable cause to arrest Nikolai Rakossi in the slayings of his live-in girlfriend and her adult daughter.
Kelly says if they gather enough evidence to arrest Rakossi, they will contact the State Department for help. He says they want to speak to him regardless.
The man was seen on security camera leaving his building with two suitcases from the apartment, and bought a one-way ticket to Moscow that arrived Monday. The bodies of 56-year-old Tatyana Prikhodko and her 27-year-old daughter, Larisa, weren't discovered until five hours after Rakossi's plane took off.
