Local authorities in New Jersey were confronted with a wild spectacle when they were invited on a routine visit to the luxury beach house of an 87-year-old man and his partner on a city beach. According to the police his own daughter proceeded to kill the 2 people. «A woman killed her 87-year-old father and his girlfriend. “He stabbed them to death at his home in the New Jersey coastal area,” police said.
Sherry Lee Hefferman, 55, was arrested for the murders of her father John Enders and girlfriend 75-year-old François Pitoy in a 6-bedroom, 4-bathroom house in Surf City that sold for more than $ 1.9 million.
Pennsylvania police arrested Hefferman on Tuesday at her home in Landenberg, and she is awaiting extradition to Garden State on a charge of murder and illegal possession of a firearm, the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.
What the authorities are looking at
Police do not rule out that the motive for the murder was a dispute between father and daughter over assets and real estate issues.
Enders became the owner of the home in May, moving it out of trust, according to Asbury Park Press. After the change, he had put the property up for sale for $ 2.3 million and has since reduced the price to $ 1.99 million, the press reported.
The bodies of Eders and Pitoy were found at his home on Sunday after local police were called in to check on the house to see if everything was going well, the statement said. They had been dead since September 29, according to police, saying both had “suffered multiple injuries from knife».
