The bodies of property manager Steven Dym, his wife Loretta and his daughter Caroline were discovered on the second-floor landing of their Westchester mansion Friday morning. Dym, the CEO of his family firm Gabriel Management, killed his family and himself with a 12-gauge shotgun, according to police. The motive for the horrific crime is still unclear.

A cleaning lady discovered the bodies in their 4,551-square-foot, five-bedroom, four-bathroom house on Fox Hill Road in Pound Ridge. The house was on the market for $1.7 million, and their realtor told the New York Post that Dym had been acting strange.

“Not only did he not know where he was going, but he didn’t even know if he was going,” broker Chris Shaffer told the Post.

Loretta was a vice president of Club Quarters Hotels in Manhattan and Caroline was a student-athlete at Sacred Heart Greenwich. Their son William was away at the University of Southern California at the time of the murders.

While family and friends were shocked by the incident, the family has experienced a bizarre out break of violence in the past. In 1992, Steven’s mother attacked his father with a hatchet while he slept. [NYP]Christopher Cameron
