Yet another UPDATE-
A Queens teen found slashed to death in her bedroom may have been killed by a boyfriend she recently met over the Internet, police sources said yesterday.
Sabrina Matthews' throat was slit, and the 14-year- old girl was left to die in her blood-spattered Cambria Heights home on Sunday.
Her father, Livingston "Buzzy" Matthews, 51, found his daughter's body naked from the waist down with blood gushing from her throat at about 1 p.m., authorities said.
Investigators removed Sabrina's computer from her room and said they would scour her e-mails and other online correspondence to determine whether she had met her killer over the Internet.
Cops were looking to interview about a dozen men she may have dated.
Police said there were no signs of forced entry at the home.
Sabrina's family gathered yesterday at the home of her older sister Janeita.
"We're coping. We're staying together. We're trying to be strong," the sister said.
Matthews' father, who was interviewed at the 105th Precinct station house Sunday night, is not considered a suspect, cops said.
