An “angel” off-duty cop was stabbed to death by her estranged husband in a Bronx apartment early Monday – with a trail of blood leading police to her body, authorities and law-enforcement sources said.
Officer Arianna Reyes-Gomez, 31 – who was hailed last year for helping to save a straphanger’s life – was allegedly stabbed multiple times by her former partner, Argenis de Jesus Baez Pizano, 34, at her apartment on Grand Concourse near East 156th Street, authorities and sources said.
At some point during the domestic dispute-turned-deadly, Reyes-Gomez phoned a female relative, who then dialed 911 and sent police to the location, police sources said.
When officers arrived there around 2:50 a.m., they found blood in the hallway leading to the apartment, and after busting down the door, Reyes-Gomez was found unresponsive, law-enforcement sources said.
The couple have a child who was not home at the time and was out of state with relatives, the sources said.
