Double Murder-Suicide: Former White Plains, NY Police Officer Glen Hochman Murders His Two Daughters (Alissa, 17, and Deanna, 13), Family Dogs and Then Commits Suicide
OH DEAR GOD, WHY WOULD ANYONE DO THIS … BEYOND TRAGIC.
The New York Daily News is reporting that Glen Hochman, a 22-year veteran who left the White Plains Police Department in January, has murdered his two teenage daughters, as well as the family dogs and then killed himself at their Adelphi Avenue home in Harrison on Saturday. In doing the unthinkable, Hochman killed his two teen daughters, 17 year old Alissa and 13 year old Deanna. Glen Hochman was found by police in the garage with a self inflicted gunshot wound. Alissa and Deanna were found dead in their bedrooms. Glen Hochman had a wife and another daughter, who were not at the house at the time of the killings.
What would have possessed the former 52 year old White Plains, NY police officer to do such an unspeakable act? White Plains Public Safety Commissioner David Chong said, Hochman served with “honor and integrity” and had an unblemished record. According to the NY Post, Glen Hochman and his wife, Anamarie, had been having serious marital problems and had been talking divorce.
