SUFFERN, N.Y. (AP) — Police believe a suburban New York woman and her boyfriend killed her uncle before they jumped to their deaths.
Suffern Police Chief Clarke Osborn said Wednesday that a financial dispute appeared to be the motive for the killing of 70-year-old William Valenti.
The chief says that after detectives learned about the killing and a dispute, they heard about a couple who had jumped off the George Washington Bridge on Monday.
The pair carried no identification. Osborn identified them as 40-year-old Nicki Hunt and 41-year-old Gary Crockett.
Hunt and Crockett had been living with Valenti.
The chief says the couple had withdrawn over $1,000 from Valenti's accounts. He says they left a note hinting they might harm themselves.
