BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, Brooklyn (WABC) -- A 58-year-old woman was found dead in an apartment entryway in Brooklyn Tuesday afternoon.

Police responded to a 911 call in Bedford-Stuyvesant around 3:15 p.m.

Officials say Latanya Parker was found with a pool of blood around her, according to police.

EMS pronounced the woman dead at the scene on Fulton Street.

Parker had knife wounds on her throat and body, authorities said.

Detectives are looking to speak with the victim's ex-boyfriend.

She posted two Facebook live videos recently, warning that if something happened to her, people should find the ex-boyfriend.

The victim's daughter told detectives the last time she heard from her mother was around 1:45 a.m. Sunday, after family gathered to celebrate her birthday.

The investigation is ongoing.
