BED-STUY, BROOKLYN — A suspect has been revealed in the double stabbing that left a woman dead and a man hospitalized in Bed-Stuy, according to police.
Police released photos late last week of the man they say stabbed 32-year-old Lizseh Casserly and a 36-year-old man after a dispute near Herkimer Place and Perry Place on Nov. 27, according to police.
The stabbing, which unfolded after a dispute around 2:30 a.m., left Casserly with fatal stab wounds in the chest and neck, police said. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The 36-year-old man, stabbed in the back, was in stable condition after the incident, police said.
Police told the Daily News that the suspect had been angry at the two victims because they were too close to his tent, one of several encampments set up near a homeless shelter on the block. Casserly and the man had just left a nearby birthday party when he approached them, according to the outlet.
Friends describe Casserly as a kind-hearted mother of two, the News reported.
Police said the suspect stands 5’6″ to 5’7″ tall, is 35 to 40 years old and was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweater, a blue coat with a fur-lined hood, blue jeans and yellow work boots.
They released photos of him taken from surveillance cameras:
