Imagine waking up in the morning and hearing sirens and helicopters in your neighborhood. Then imagine finding out that one of your neighbors entire family was massacred in the night. On your street. That became the real life nightmare for the people who lived at 203 Route 82 in Fishkill, NY. Their neighbors, the Morey family, were murdered and their house set on fire. Most neighbors did not really know the family, however, it was unsettling anyway. The Moreys were not a problem in the neighborhood and no one saw anything out of the ordinary there.
Manuel A. Morey, 33, Tina Morey, 30, Manuel Morey, 13, Adam Morey, 10, and Ryan Morey, 6, have been tentatively identified. No forensic identifications have been made, state police said.
Autopsies confirmed Manuel Morey, known to family and friends as Tony, died of a gunshot wound to the neck, while his wife died of gunshot wounds to the chest and head.Their children, ages 13, 10 and 6, were killed in a similarly brutal manner: two were stabbed multiple times, while the youngest child died of blunt trauma to the head, the Dutchess County Medical Examiner said.
It has been reported that the children were “tortured and killed in front of their parents”. It has also been implied that this heinous crime may have been committed by an organized crime group, although investigators will not confirm that at this time, saying there is not currently enough information to prove that. Police also believe that the killer or killers probably have “struggle” wounds received during the commission of the crime, so they are checking out hospitals and clinics in the area to see if anyone came in for treatment. They also are asking for the public’s help in solving this horrific crime that has affected the entire community.
