In a bizarre twist, an in-law of the 75-year-old Hudson Valley woman who was killed in her home was found dead.

 

According to reports, a man linked to the case was found dead Tuesday morning from an apparent suicide.

The man hasn’t been identified publicly. But, according to ABC, the man is Perla Gatchalian’s daughter’s husband’s 69-year-old father.

Gatchalian, 75, was found dead inside her Mahopac home on Coventry Circle on Thursday. Her death is being treated as a homicide.

“We are sure it is a homicide,” Carmel Police Chief Michael Cazzari said.
