NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A gruesome discovery was made in the Astoria houses in Queens.

When Donna Blanchard's son arrived, he could be heard screaming over and over 'who killed my mom?'

Blanchard's home health aid found the 64-year-old grandmother -- who needed a cane just to get around -- face down in her apartment with a knife stuck in her back.

This morning, Ethel, a neighbor and friend wondered how this could have happened.

"I wish I did, but I don't. My heart goes out to her children," she said.

Cops say there were no signs of forced entry, and nothing appeared to be taken.
