Police Looking For Nikolai Rakossi In Stabbing Of Mother, Daughter In Sheepshead Bay

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police continued searching for a killer Monday after finding the bloody bodies of a mother and daughter inside a Sheepshead Bay apartment.

Police discovered the body of 27-year-old Larisa Prikhodko and her mother, 57-year-old Tatyana Prikhodko, at 2299 East 13th St., while responding to a missing persons report. Both women suffered multiple stab wounds to the face and abdomen.

Police are looking for Tatyana’s live-in companion, Nikolai Rakossi. A source told CBS 2’s Sean Hennessey a surveillance camera showed Rakossi entering the building, but not leaving.

Police suspect he left out the back door where the surveillance camera wasn’t working — something any resident of the building could have known.

“We have a channel where you can see the camera — of all the camera angles,” neighbor Armanda Petrillo said.

Neighbors were stunned by the discovery.

“It’s overwhelming when something like this happens in a place where you live, where you have your kids. It’s not a good feeling,” said neighbor Roman Portnoe.

“She’s a single mom.  She was a good mom. She was living there with her mom and both of them were taking care of the baby,” another neighbor said.

While Larisa Prikhodko lived at the apartment with her 2-year-old son, she had shared custody. The boy was staying with his father over the weekend. Police said Prikhodko had arranged to pick up her son on Sunday. When she failed to show up, the boy’s father called police and reported her missing.

Larisa, a graduate of Long Island University and a registered nurse at Mt. Sinai, was often seen coming and going late at night or early in the morning.

1010 WINS’ Juliet Papa reports: Residents Are Concerned

The NYPD cordoned off the scene on Monday. They were interviewing several people at the building and hauling out several loads of evidence, including heavy-duty gardening tools.

“In the garbage room, I saw the investigators were looking at garbage,” said neighbor Giedre Beciute.

Residents told CBS 2 that investigators went door to door overnight, showing a picture of a man who resident Peter Dynowski said he’s seen before.

“I’m assuming that is the person they are looking for,” he said.

Some neighbors said the newest murders remind them of the stabbing deaths of Yelena Bulchenko, 20, and her 56-year-old mother, Anna. Maksim Gelman pleaded not guilty last week to murder charges. He is also accused of killing his stepfather.

    Maybe he got quite fed up of living under disgusting Jewish occupation of Sheepsheadbay and instead of moving into more pleasant environment out of that zionists operated gulag the man snapped and took it out on his family by slaughtering them. I am not saying that action was the right thing to do but in order to do such action he definitely must have had his reasons no matter how difficult to comprehend for most people.

    Russian people are unique because many of us have no trouble slaughtering people either domestically or globally sometimes in millions. Americans are remarkably similar psychopaths too in this regard though.

  2. DAMNED says:

    CLOSE THE BORDERS TO FOREIGNERS. THEY BRING CRIME AND POVERTY HERE. ELIMINATE THE WELFARE AND GOVT HANDOUTS TO ALL RUSSIANS.

    USE THE MONEY FOR AMERICANS THAT ARE POOR AND CANT AFFORD TO EAT…

  4. Ali says:

    A**HOLE! Wow, that’s all I have to say. What kind of a stupid jerk would write something like this? Unbelievable. This makes me concerned.

  5. nyc says:

    If he fled to Russia , I would imagine the russians would send him back in cooperation with the US ! If they had a murderer coming to the US, our law enforcement would do the same as long as it is not spy verses spy business !

  6. Willy says:

    The guy that did it is long gone in Russia. Good luck trying to extradict him back. Sad and very tragic for this family.

  7. Gregory says:

    The people of NYC and especially the Russian community will feel the shock and horror of these insane murders for years to come. It would seem that NYC lacks the basic ability to deal with and intervene with those who are mentally ill. The recent random violence in NYC shows neither pattern nor ethnic group other than psychopathy. Getting out of NYC poses an option for safety and is worth consideration

    1. Just an observation says:

      Gregory,

      You appear to be a doosh-bag.

  8. Mayya says:

    Shame on every degenerate racist ass who used this article as a sounding board to air your baseless prejudices… These two women both worked at hospitals as registered nurses, working in maternity ward — one at Mount Sinai and the other at Brookdale Hospital.. Tayana was a nurse in a maternity ward at Brookdale for 13 years .. not only did this mean these women paid their fair share of taxes, were 1199 hospital union workers — but it also meant that these ladies delivered babies, black, white, asian, hispanic — all the babies born in NYC without bad thoughts or prejudice.. while there maybe some Russians that milk the systems — as a Russian that came here at the age of 16, and am now a citizen, a lawyer, a taxpaer, a property owner — I can tell you that we are the backbone of NYC… we are engineers, doctors, teachers, programmers, taxi drivers, construction workers, nurses, and even police officers.. Last year, a russian immigrant Police Officer Timoshenko was killed in a line of duty, protecting this City, the Sports Illustrated centrfold Irine Shayk this year is a Russian, it is a Russian that owns the Nets, and Google was founded by Russian — Sergey Brin — your hatered of Russians is nothing more than envy that we come here, work hard and achieve what you can only dream of

  9. Paul says:

    I’d like to know who the rude reporter was who suggested that my friend “must be on crack!” when he suggested that it wasn’t much of a story. This happened a little after 11pm tonight. He should be fired. At the very least he needs some training in how to speak to the public. A very immature statement at best.

  10. mj says:

    when someone is stabbed in the face that means the killer knew them . i guarentee it 100 %

  11. karen says:

    yes, we will not be surprised when the “person of interest” is hauled into jail. ladies, if someone has abused you verbally/physically get away from it. get a protective order in court, and renew it on a regular basis. no means no! the courts need to stop letting the lowlifes getting out time after time. zero tolerance. nothing justifies what was done to these two women. justice for the victims!

      is a protection order enough? this kind of thing makes me think owning a gun may not be such a bad idea for women.

    Oh my god that poor girl and her mother. god only knows what was going through their heads while this horrific crime was happening. What does it matter if the person is russian, hungarian, italian, polish, etc………we are all people. It doesn’t matter where we come from. We are all human beings. That poor 2 year old now has no mother. May God Bless the ones who passed on and may God watch over the child who will grow up without a mother……

    1. chris says:

      Hello Stefanie, I loved reading a comment that I could have written myself.
      You Rock…. I read a lot of news articles, and this one really caught my attention… What a D*^# of a person to do this. He will rot in hell. In the meantime, I have never written a response to a comment until i saw yours. U take care now. Christopher

    Beautiful women was murdered, ukrainian btw, not russian. But for you, miserable illiterate piece of s…t, it is time to show to whole world, what a moron you are.

    1. N. says:

      Hej pig,

      I speak four languages. How many do you speak, moron? I bet, hardly one and I bet you weight 300 pounds and girls don’t like you, especially russian girls.

      1. N. says:

        So, do you weigh 300 pound ? Ha ha ha. You are still moron and bigot in spite you spell better than me. And also: you don’t speak 4 languages. Right? So, you see, it is much more than to know how to spell weigh/weight.

  15. Lisa says:

    “Russians r Pigs” How could u think that only russians can do it? How many animals who r not russians are serial killers? Anybody can be on this poor girl place.
    You were blaming russians for not paying taxes but why didnt you say anything that such beautiful girl and her mother were killed.

    1. NIKOLAS says:

      PIG! How old are you? Sorry for calling you pig but you do not give your name.

    AGAIN IF IT WERE NOT FOR EUROPEANS WE IN THE US WOULD BE RIDING BURROS INSTEAD OF DRIVING CARS. RUSSIANS ARE EUROPEAN . YOU MUST BE JOKING LISTEN AND READ THE LOCAL NEWS IT’ S ALL BLACK AND HISPANIC IDIOT’S DOING ALL THE CRIMES. MS13 ,BLOODS.CRIPS THEIR ALL GARBAGE AND NOT FROM EUROPE.

    1. injun says:

      LIVE WITH THE HISPANICS AND YOU SEE THE DIFFERENCE.

    2. All American says:

      It’s the OTHER way around you “are you smarter than a 5th grader'” contestant. It was the Europeans (Spanish Conquistadors) who introduce the Donkey (Burro) and horses to this continent. It was the U.S. who invented the auto industry. Also, 25% of Russia falls in Europe, the other 75% is all Asian. Russia is officially categorized as an Asian country. But the Europeans did introduce genocide to an indigenous people, and lets not forget slavery, so you have that at least.

      1. INJUN says:

        OH EXCUSE ME .DID THE CONQUISTADORS VISIT NORTH AMERICA ? 25% IS BETTER TNAN 0%. ASIANS ARE SMART ALSO. GOOD COMBINATION.

      2. INJUN says:

        OH BY THE WAY A FRENCEMAN BUILT THE FIRST AUTOMOBILE. AGAIN FRANCE IS IN EUROPE .

    3. M.A.D says:

      Idiot…Russia is in Asia…and yes China is also in Asia. Ummm, Russians have tendency to steal from medicare…among other things. Hence, criminals do not have a race, they are part of every race.

  17. Lisa says:

    Hey Get Real! Some Russians are working hard and pay taxes too.

      You do not have to teach me English grammar. You have to teach yourself how to be a human not an animal.

      Have u ever been abused by Russian people? Why do u hate them so much?

  18. injun93 says:

    OH BOY! HOW CAN YOU OVERLOOK HISPANICS AND BLACKS. READ THE NEWSPAPERS .BESIDES RUSSIANS ARE EUROPEAN AND IF IT WERE NOT FOR EUROPEANS INSTEAD OF CARS WE WOULD BE ON BURROS.

    You are probably ugly and fat thats why you so jealous of Beautiful Russian girls

    1. N.. says:

      You are fat and filthy yourself.

    2. N.. says:

      Hahaha. Of course, they are not 200 pounds, so how could they be beautiful, No way!

  22. Y says:

    Please educate yourself! Russians immigrating to the US after the soviet union collapsed are by far one of the most financially successful and cultured of all immigrant groups to come to the US. There are lowlife criminals in every group. The Russian community in the US, however, accounts for a proportionally VERY low number.

    1. M.A.D says:

      The rest of them got their furtunes by exploiting medicare.

  23. DaTruth says:

    i wonder if the father knows something….where is the father and the baby anyways? better yet, where was the baby and the father when the muder’s were commited?

    1. Allen Rags says:

      Thats my question….

      1. white guy says:

        the latest news telling that the father with a little baby they taking a bath . while the crime happend . but the other news says . father and little baby they been in the kitching making dinner while the crime commited . and the reason that they didnt hear the voice of the two womans screaming that cause the baby was crying and father let the music to louder !!

  24. Allen Rags says:

    With both caregivers dead, what happened to the baby??

    1. white guy says:

      baby now with police safe . father been locked up . they believe father he may involved with this crime . now he is in the cell for further invistigation. father lawyer try to get him out by bail !!

      1. Tina says:

        Hey white guy – Stop making things up. The baby was visiting the father for the weekend and he is the one who called the police when she didn’t show up to pick up the baby.

  25. Harlem Goin H.a.m. says:

    Another pretty lady dead due to a crazy man

  26. Omar says:

    First of all, HARLEM GOING H.A.M. is not from the ghetto or the projects. He’s probably a lilly white moron posting things like this to get a reaction from people too stupid to realize he is trolling this website. Second of all, no one in the projects would come on this site and disparage anyone just for the sake of doing it. Just because people live in public housing it doesn’t make them worse than you. And keep the “ghetto animals” bull$hit out of your mouth and figure out who these women knew that killed them. The crime was too violent for it to be a random act.

    1. Stefanie W says:

      Very well said.

  27. brooklyn4ever says:

    My neighborhood used to be really, really nice. It was safe, a great place to raise a family and before you know it, all these low life’s move in and take over and you are left with nothing but trash. Very, very sad. Maksim Gelman, now someone else killing people within blocks of each other. What gives?

  28. liwingnut says:

    Da…You tell them comrade….

  29. nyc says:

    What is going on in Bklyn. ? Almost every crime story today in the news takes place in Bklyn ! Use to be a safe/nice area many years ago .

    1. Jerry says:

      It’s a shame , once populated by hard working emigrants, (most have now left for this reason of immoral lack of conscience character)
      A large percentage arrive here from other countries illegally,immediately have babies and live off the system. Others go into scamming prostitution and drug trade.
      This is our new populous, and in twenty years or so they will run it.
      We have only ourselves to blame?

  30. jtorres says:

    This is sad. Two women are murdered and people turn it into a poster board for racism. Who cares where they were from or where their murderer is from? There are criminals and murderers in every country around the globe and race, color, creed or ethniticity do not play into the reasons why in their sick monds they did it. It was done by someone they knew because of the way they were killed. Stabbing, especially in the face, is a very violent and very personal way to kill someone. That kind of rage implies a personal relationship. Either way, I feel sorry for them and the people they leave behind. RIP

    1. Donnatella Soleil says:

      It just shows their upbringing. I hope they catch the creep who did this to them. Rest in peace to the victims❤

  31. Gregory says:

    How do decent people live, work and survive in NYC? The fear of random violence and murder must be mind numbing. This incident reads like a scene from the TV show “Crimminal Minds”.

    1. Daniel P. says:

      New York City has one of the LOWEST crime rates of any city in the U.S. There are at LEAST 50 CITIES with populations over 250,000 with a HIGHER crime rate than New Yrok.

      1. HarlemGoingHamster says:

        This statistic is woefully inaccurate. You say of any city in the U.S. No way, Pal. What you mean is any large city in the U.S., and even that statistic is skewered by subjective definitions and under classifying to make neighborhoods look safer. The city is at its most dangerous since the eighties and one of the most dangerous in the country, but we can’t say that aloud because than the regentrified types and hipsters will stop coming here.

      2. injun says:

        RIDE THE A TRAIN THROUGH CENTRAL BROOKLYN TO SEE HOW SAFE NEW YORK CITY IS. YOU MUST BE FROM OUT OF TOWN!

  32. Mena says:

    There is a hidden secret among d two women and there is a third party.

    1. HARLEM GOING H.A.M. says:

      YOU MUST BUILT ROCKET SHIPS FOR A LIVING. HOWEVER, PLEASE EDIT YOUR WRITINGS IN THE FUTURE. THIS WAY YOU WON’T APPEAR TO BE THE U IN DUMB

    2. white guy says:

      police believe the father he is the killer . reason was that step daughter did not bring him vodka after she came home . he get mad and fight . mum try to help her daughter but father was taugh . kill them both . polise says after killing both womans he let the music louder . then he make his dinner . buy his vodca . then sleep beside two woman body. for almost two days .
      he try to hide the crime . but to late . his job was a cop in russia . polise still hv no evidenc against him . his one of relative try to get him out by bail . then eazy for him to run to russia . baby is safe with police.
