Officers from the NYPD Emergency Service Unit forced open the door.
They also recovered a 6-inch kitchen knife believed to have been used in the killing, according to reports.
Residents told The New York Daily News that Curry had knocked on several doors at the YWCA, which offers housing to low-income and homeless women, before Millet had opened her door.
“She happened to open her door that morning. It really could have been any one of us,” one stunned woman told the News.

The killing was the first incident of violence at the center since it opened 128 years ago, a spokeswoman said to the newspaper.
Millet was originally from Port of Spain, the capital of Trinidad, and lived at the center for several years. She worked as a home health aide and leaves behind several children, according to The New York Times.
Neither she nor Curry had a history of violence or complaints filed against them, a spokeswoman for the YWCA told reporters. A motive for the killing was not immediately clear.
Curry was reportedly being evaluated by psychiatrists at Kings County Hospital.
