Wealthy businessman kills wife and daughter and shoots himself in murder-suicide

The wealthy businessman who gunned down his wife and daughter before shooting himself in an apparent double murder-suicide on Friday had a history of family violence.

Steven Dym, 56, Loretta, 50, and Caroline, 18, were discovered inside their Westchester mansion Friday morning at 11am by the family’s housekeeper, authorities said.

Police would not reveal where the bodies were found or in what order the mom and daughter were killed.

This was not the first instance of violence between members of the Dym family in the Westchester home.

Dym’s mother Paula was sent to a psychiatric hospital in 1992 after attacking his father Lawrence with a hatchet while he slept, USA Today reported.

Lawrence survived the incident and Paula was placed in a mental care facility
