Stephen Spina, 36, planned to spend his Monday off having lunch with his girlfriend and taking his 12-year-old daughter to a Yankees game. Neither ever happened. On September 17, 2007, Stephen was stabbed to death in his Mamaroneck, NY apartment. With no signs of forced entry and nothing stolen from the home, it is very likely that Stephen knew his killer. He was last seen by a neighbor at 9:30am and was found deceased by his girlfriend around 12:30pm. Detectives received a number of leads, including information about Stephen’s tires being slashed not long before his murder. Also investigated were tips regarding prior relationships of Stephen’s and his girlfriend. Even with many leads in the case, detectives have been unable to name a suspect or rule anyone out.
