A 33-year-old Glendale man with a history of domestic violence remains the prime suspect in the death of his girlfriend and the stabbing of her son.
Police sources said investigators believe James Park stabbed Maureen Biermann in the neck and stabbed her 2-year-old son multiple times in the back on December 20, at a residence they shared in Maspeth.
Cops responding to a 911 call at about 4 a.m. on December 20 found Biermann, 43, unconscious and her son in a pool of blood at the residence, police said.
Biermann was taken to Wyckoff Heights Hospital in Brooklyn, where she was pronounced dead on arrival. Her son was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center where he is listed in stable condition.
At approximately 10:30 a.m. on December 20, police responded to 911 calls of a man who jumped in front of a westbound Long Island Rail Road train at Fresh Pond Road and Metropolitan Avenue, located just two blocks from the scene of the earlier murder/assault. Police identified the jumper as James Park.
Law enforcement sources said Biermann had obtained an Order of Protection against Park early this year, prompted by a domestic violence incident.
Neighbors told reporters that Park broke Biermann’s leg in the incident that occurred at the Maspeth home.
