Mindy Singer Death: 37-years-old Peter Ikonomou has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon for allegedly killing his girlfriend. Mindy Singer died at the age of 35 on December 7, 2021.
According to the charging document obtained by PEOPLE, Singer, a well known club promoter, was hit in the head with a blunt instrument and stabbed numerous times around the neck and torso.
She was also stabbed in the buttocks with a 46-inch sword and in the chest with a screwdriver, according to the charging document.
Police said they were called to Ikonomou’s Briarwood apartment on 85th Road at 1:40 p.m. on Dec. 7 for a robbery in progress. Once there, officers found Singer deceased with multiple stab wounds to her body.
Peter Ikonomou called police to the scene after his mother and a friend stopped by to check on him and claimed that “fake cops and locksmiths” were trying to make their way into his apartment.
The Daily News, citing police sources, reports Ikonomou told police that Singer was “in the closet.”
A neighbor told the outlet that Ikonomou struggled with officers attempting to put him in a squad car and smashed a squad car window.
“He was handcuffed in the back of the car, no shirt on, just, like, some shorts and no shoes and … bang, bang, bang on the window,” a nearby resident said, according to the Daily News. “He kept kicking and kicking and kicking until he bust that window open. He was saying he was having a heart attack.”
A GoFundMe page set up for her obituary and funeral arrangement, organized by Ken M. He wrote,
Hey family and friends, my name is Ken and I’m a former coworker helping to raise money to celebrate the life of a friend.
