No one has been arrested for her death.
Police questioned her 13-year-old son Leo – who is thought to have been at home when she was killed – but he was released without charge.
Gaal’s equities advisor husband, Howard Klein, and their oldest son Jamie were out of town visiting colleges at the time of her murder.
Police believe Orsolya went out for the night on Saturday, possibly with a man, then returned home. She was killed inside the basement of her home then was dragged out in the bag, they say. Unnamed sources told PIX11 News that she had told her son she was going out with friends but was in fact with another man.
After she was murdered, police believe the killer used her phone to text her husband and say ‘your whole family is next’.
PIX11 cites sources who say the killer also told Howard: ‘Your wife sent me to jail some years ago. I’m back’.
On Saturday, Gaal’s husband Klein told The New York Post: ‘[My son] Leo is safe. Thank God [my son] is safe. There are concerns about our safety. Our lives are at risk.’
Surveillance footage has also emerged showing someone in a hoodie wheeling the bag near her home at around 4.30am. The bag is similar to one used by her 13-year-old son and could have been taken from the home by the killer.
