QUEENS — Investigators released video Thursday of a man they want to talk to in connection with the murder of an NYPD officer's aunt in Jamaica Hills, police said.

The man, who can be seen in black and white surveillance footage, was walking near 160-12 Normal Road where Nazma Khanam, a 60-year-old former language teacher from Bangladesh, was fatally stabbed in the torso about 9:15 p.m., NYPD officials said.\

The man in the video has not been described as a suspect, but merely a person of interest who investigators want to question.

Khanam, who was the aunt of a police officer in the NYPD's Transit District Two, was returning home with her husband, who was lagging behind about a block because of his ailing health, when a man stabbed her, police said.

"Somebody killed me!" her 75-year-old husband heard her shout, family said.

He found Khanam lying dying in the street, covered in blood, family said.
