Couple Dead in East Hampton Murder-Suicide

It’s been a rough summer in the Hamptons. Last weekend, a bouncer was beaten to death by a patron at Southampton Publick House—the village’s first murder in over twenty years. Now, the New York Post is reporting an apparent murder-suicide in East Hampton: After receiving “numerous hang-up” calls early this morning, police arrived at a house on Cedar Trail Road and found a 64-year-old man dead of a self-inflicted gunshot to the head. His injured wife, also 64, was rushed to the Southampton Hospital and then Stony Brook University Medical Center, where she was later pronounced dead. The identities of the couple have not yet been released.
