NY Doctor Commits Murder-Suicide

New York City law enforcement officials conducting an inquiry into a tragic incident of dual homicide have determined it to be a case of murder-suicide. The grown-up individual, recognized as an oncologist, purportedly inflicted gunshot wounds on her infant before ending her own life using a firearm. Law enforcement authorities have dismissed speculations regarding her spouse’s involvement in the fatalities, asserting with full confidence that the doctor was the sole individual responsible for the tragic event.

Doctor Krystal Cascetta, an oncologist at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, is accused by the police of entering her baby’s room on August 5 and locking it before leaving her Somers, Westchester County, home. When another resident of the house ran to check after she had shot the baby, she shot herself. When the unnamed respondent, who might have been one of her parents, smashed the door open, they discovered the mother and infant dead and dialed 911.

Police are positive that Cascetta killed herself and her child, however there is no clue as to why yet. One New York state trooper responded to social media allegations that her husband was involved, confirming that he was not present, and criticized internet trolls for “dragging the husband through the mud.” He also said that police know “100%, beyond a doubt” that Cascetta was the one who fired both rounds.

Cascetta and her husband’s social media accounts portray an outwardly content pair who have been married since 2019 and conceal no indication of the 40-year-old doctor’s deadly and suicidal intentions. However, there are signs that not everything was right in the household. Police or ambulances had “at least twice” been called to the property this summer, one neighbor told reporters. 

Tim Talty, Cascetta’s 37-year-old spouse, is the owner of an energy bar manufacturer; it appears that Cascetta served as an adviser to his business, utilizing her understanding of medicine to make his products healthier. Their only child was the infant who perished in the tragedy.
