HARRISON, N.Y. (AP) — A suburban New York police chief says a retired officer’s suicide note indicates that the killing of his teenage daughters in their beds was a premeditated act.

Harrison police Chief Anthony Marraccini said Monday that former White Plains Officer Glen Hochman had no known health or psychiatric problems. He says there also were no indications of alcohol or drug use.

Marraccini said 17-year-old Alissa and 13-year-old Deanna apparently were asleep when they were shot sometime after 2 a.m. Saturday.

Their parents had discussed a possible separation in mid-January. Hochman’s wife went to police on Friday to report a non-violent argument because an acquaintance had urged her to document such incidents.

    “because an acquaintance had urged her to document such incidents.”?

    Is the “acquaintance” qualified to give such an advise under the circumstance?

    Another twisted case apparently set off by a goof’s stupid suggestion. Apparently. If true, the wife has got to be the world’s 2nd biggest goof to think that was good advice or a realistic move. Me and my husband had an argument? But, the first biggest goof is the father. Go kill yourself. But why the girls?
