Neighbor: NY shooter confided illness weeks agoNeighbor: Western NY woman who killed daughter, father, self said weeks ago that she was ill
PERINTON, N.Y. (AP) ' The next-door neighbor of a western New York woman who police say used a shotgun to kill her 10-year-old daughter, her father and herself says she recently confided in him that she was suffering from a debilitating illness.
Tony Henderson said Thursday that he ran into Penelope Luddy at a grocery store a few weeks ago and she told him she was being treated for a serious condition. Henderson says he believed her ailment was physical, not mental.
The 53-year-old Luddy was found dead Wednesday next to her mortally wounded daughter and father at their home in the Rochester suburb of Perinton. The killings happened after she sent her husband on an errand.
Henderson says Luddy was a friendly, generous woman who brought over flowers when his family moved in nearly two years ago.
