The couple was due in court the next day on a divorce petition. This husband was going to settle this matter his way. The wife was beaten to death by the leg of the kitchen table. Then, the children were shot on their beds, and neatly tucked in. Then, Mr. Freidlander went to the basement of the marital home and shot himself.
We see this over and over again. Wives are not being beleived. Disputes go unsettled. Wives being intimidated to go to court. If they do muster up the courage to go to court, they suffer. And now, an entire family is gone. Forever. Because, “If I can’t have them, she shouldn’t have them either”. And this was a lawyer.
A lawyer that we find out the next day, played the same low-class games like all the other men with a bad feeling about a looming custody battle.
It didn’t take but a day for the rest of the story to appear – NY Post “lawyer took inappropriate pictures of daughter“, pressured his wife into having an abortion a few years ago, and she did. The crazed killer sought psychological help from a pal, but canceled. Wife Amy’s parents told the press that they did not like this man from the start. He talked down to their daughter, and it was a rocky marriage all along.
When will America learn to accept these signs as legitimate? How many more deaths until the system takes psychological abuse to a level of seriousness to protect our children’s futures?
NY Daily News – He shot his kids – then tucked them into bed.
Police revealed Wednesday that the Westchester County lawyer who wiped out his family in a twisted murder-suicide used a 12-gauge shotgun to blast his pajama-clad children.
Samuel Friedlander, who was in the midst of a bitter divorce, fired into the bodies of sleeping 10-year-old Molly and 8-year-old Gregory in their Cross River home.
“It appears they were covered up with the bedspreads that were on their beds after they were shot,” New York State Police Maj. Michael Kopy said.
Friedlander, 50, used a table or chair leg to kill his estranged wife, Amy, 46, during the bloodbath early Tuesday.
