This is sad…
A deranged, out-of-work chiropractor stabbed his live-in girlfriend and their two toddlers in their necks last night before fatally slashing his own throat, cops said.
“All we heard was a man yelling, ‘I’m not doing this anymore! I’m tired of doing this all the time!’ ” said Daniel Perugini, 21, who was walking by the Midland Beach home around 7:30 p.m.
Cops soon arrived at the three-story home and found Victoria Orlik, 34, and her son, Brandon, 18 months, bleeding profusely.
Orlik said her boyfriend, Douglas Nemeth, had knifed them and was still inside the Hempstead Avenue house with their 3-year-old daughter, Sasha, sources said after several frantic attempts to speak to Nemeth, 40, cops broke down the front door and found him on the kitchen floor and Sasha in a bedroom.
“They first brought out the little girl, who looked like she wasn’t doing very well,” said neighbor Mary Jongoy.
“They then brought out the husband on the stretcher and he looked like he was dead.”
Perugini said, “They were pumping his chest trying to revive him.”
All four were rushed to Staten Island University North Hospital, where Nemeth died.
Sasha was in surgery and Brandon was recovering last night. Orlik, a city schoolteacher, was undergoing exploratory surgery.
The bloodshed stunned neighbors, who described a happy family who enjoyed playing with their three dogs.
“I’ve known the family for eight years and I never heard any fighting,” said Anna Ogurtsova. “I never saw him and Victoria arguing, they seemed like such a happy family.”
She said Orlik’s mother, in whose house they were living, would ask neighbors if they could help Nemeth, who used to live in Vermont, find a job.
The couple had been dating for about four years, but only recently did Nemeth move into the home.
Cops said they knew of no history of domestic violence at the home.
Craziness… Seems like they’re trying to say joblessness drove him to attempted murder and suicide. It wouldn’t be the first time.
Let’s hope the mother and children fully recover. SMH.
