She has been identified as Kathleen’s daughter and has been deposited with Child Protective Services.

“This area in Valley Cottage is normally a very, very quiet area,” said Ray McCullagh, chief of Clarkstown police, at Tuesday’s press conference. “We rarely respond there, rarely respond to phone calls. That is very special for that location. ‘

The sentiment was echoed by George Hoehmann, supervisor of Town of Clarkstown, who added: This is not typical of a suburban community like Clarkstown.

Detectives spoke to a person of interest on Tuesday and are investigating the murders.

During the press conference, McCullagh said a vehicle was missing. It has since been found and is being processed.

Police said they believed the murders were part of an isolated incident and that the public was not endangered.

The cottage was on a huge plot of other cottages and is near a local nursing home, but authorities claim the facility has nothing to do with the case.
