A decorated Upstate New York policeman of 22 years who only retired last month murdered his two teenage daughters before killing himself on Saturday afternoon, authorities say.
Glen Hochman, 52, who only left the force in January, is believed to have killed daughters Alissa Hochman, 17, and Deanna Hochman, 13, inside the family's Westchester County house,The Journal News reported.
He then committed suicide.
The three were were found dead about 3.50pm inside their home in the village of Harrison, about 20 miles northeast of Manhattan.
A heavy police presence surrounded the home at 1 Adelphi Ave. and worked at the scene through the night.
White Plains Police Commissioner David Chong released a statement identifying the former officer as Hochman, and called the deaths 'an unfathomable tragedy'.
Chong told The News Journal the department are 'shocked and horrified by the news'.
'We can only pray for the family,' he said.
