Police remove the body of James Peck from the LIRR tracks at Fresh Pond Road Tuesday morning after he jumped to his death in front of an oncoming train. Peck reportedly murdered his girlfriend and stabbed her stepson before taking his own life.
A crazed man stabbed his girlfriend and her stepson before killing himself by jumping in front of an LIRR train in Queens, police sources said.
The unidentified suspect stabbed his 43-year-old lover in the neck inside her Maspeth home at about 6 a.m., police said.
The 33-year-old attacker then turned the knife on her 22-year-old stepson, stabbing him in the back multiple times, and then fled, police said.
Responding officers found the son bleeding outside the home. His stepmother was found unconscious inside the home, police said.
Cops launched a manhunt for the suspect. At about 10:30 a.m. they responded to a call of a man who jumped in front of a westbound train at the Long Island Railroad Station at Fresh Pond Road near Metropolitan Ave. — just four blocks from attack, a police source said.
Cops later identified the dead jumper as the attacker, a police source said.
The dead man’s stabbed girlfriend was rushed to Wyckoff Hospital and is in critical condition, police said. Her stepson was taken to Elmhurst Hospital and is in stable condition, police said.
Investigators are still determining what prompted the savage attack.
