NYPD detectives are hunting for a third teenager they say participated in the execution of a 20-year-old Bronx woman stabbed over sexually explicit photos.

Cops released an image of the unidentified suspect Thursday, saying the teen is wanted for questioning.

Investigators have already arrested a 15-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl who they say lured Nyla Bond to a Mount Eden apartment building where she was stabbed in the chest.

The girl, who once had an intimate relationship with Bond, orchestrated the Nov. 2 killing because she believed Bond had made risque photos public, police source said. She allegedly schemed with the boy to murder the helpless victim, cops said.

“This is a planned revenge homicide,” a police source said after the girl was arrested for murder along with the alleged stabber on Tuesday.

Bond’s mother, Shadonna Watson, told the Daily News she received condolences from the accused girl on the day after her daughter’s slaying.

“She set my daughter up and she even messaged me on Facebook afterward,” Watson said. “She said ‘So sorry for your loss, mama bear.’ This girl is the devil.”

Police said the female suspect became enraged after seeing the photos were released, although it was unclear if they were posted on social media or if they were even made public by Bond.

Both teens were charged with murder, manslaughter and possession of a weapon. The Daily News is withholding their names because they are charged as juvenile offenders.

It was not immediately clear what role the teen currently being sought played in the killing. The mom of the boy in custody told The News that the unapprehended accomplice actually did the stabbing, not her son.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
