Father kills wife, daughter and himself in Pound Ridge home

Police: 3 dead in murder-suicide in Westchester

State Police said they died in an apparent murder-suicide. When they arrived at the residence on Fox Hill Road, police discovered the bodies of three deceased people, according to the official statement.

The victims - 56-year-old Steven Dym, 50-year-old Loretta Dym, and their daughter, Caroline Dym, 18 - were found dead inside their home by a woman coming to clean, New York State Police said.

Police still have not yet found a motive for the killings, according to CBS.

Neighbors say the family was in the process of selling the home.

However, as stated in that report Dym's father, Lawrence Dym, had been attacked by Steven's mother while he was sleeping in bed with a hatchet handle in the very same home back in 1992. Pound Ridge Police Chief Dave Ryan, who was the first to appear on the scene, told the press that this was the first murder he had seen during his 19 years with the department. "Imagine the heartbreak for that young boy".

The Journal News (http://lohud.us/2w4ZMPi ) says Steven Dym was CEO of a property management company.

Loretta was a vice president of Club Quarters Hotels in Manhattan and Caroline was a student-athlete at Sacred Heart Greenwich. The three relatives are made due by a child who is an understudy at the University of Southern California.

There were reportedly around 20 officers investigating the incident with helicopters flying overhead.
