Cops discovered Larisa Prikhodko, 27, and her mom Tatyana Prikhodko, 56, late Sunday after going to their Sheepshead Bay apartment to investigate a missing person report.
The report had come from someone who was supposed to meet the younger woman earlier and grew concerned when she didn’t show up, sources said.
Cops broke down the front door to the sixth floor apartment in the Neck Road Arms building on E. 13th Street and found one of the victims just inside the door.
The other was discovered in a bedroom.
Both had been stabbed repeatedly on their faces and bodies, police said. There was no sign of forced entry.
Sources said investigators were looking to question Tatyana’s husband – Larisa’s step-father – and had alerted local airports to be on the lookout.
Neighbors said Larisa had a 2-year-old son and worked as a nurse or nurse’s assistant.
“She was living with her mom and they weren’t sending the son to day care because they took turns caring for him,” said the neighbor, who gave only her first name, Valentina. “They always went to the playground. The baby was well taken care of.”
She said she thought the boy’s father had split with Larisa about a year earlier.
A striking blond, Larisa turned heads around the neighborhood.
“Me and a group of friends would play football across from her building and we would stop and see her coming out and get into nice cars all the time,” said 17-year-old neighbor Patrick Romanowski.
“We all asked ourselves, ‘Jesus Christ, who is this girl? What is she doing here?’ You don’t see girls like her around here like that very often.”
