The stabbing happened on Caesar place near 80th Street.

“I can not believe this,” said Victor Jackson, who lives nearby.

Police say McCoy was found inside her second floor bedroom, lying face down on her bed with multiple stab wounds to her back and arms.

Police say McCoy’s daughter told them she had just arrived at her mother’s home when she saw her son leaving.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

“I cannot believe this,” said Victor Jackson, who lives nearby. “She was my neighbor, very hard working. She established a very nice home here for herself. She raised her children here in her home, and I just can’t believe it.”
