CRIME.jpg

East Greenbush police are investigating a double-murder suicide.

Police were dispatched to 58 Rockrose drive in the wee hours of Tuesday morning - a woman recently released from a mental institution attempted to take her own life and the lives of her two young daughters, ages 6 and 11. Responders found all three in "grave" condition - they were taken to Albany Medical Center hospital where they were pronounced dead. Autopsies have been scheduled. Time Warner Cable News reports the woman was overcome with grief after her son committed suicide in April.
