Parente Baltimore Murder-Suicide Update

More information is out about a possible motive in the tragic murder-suicide of a Long Island family at a Shertaon hotel in Towson, just north of Baltimore, Maryland.

Newsday, a Long Island area paper, reports that the New York State Attorney’s General office is investigating claims made by Bruce Montague, a lawyer in Queens, New York, who says he invested $450,000 with William Parente. After the Bernie Madoff scandal, Montague requested his money back. Parente gave Montague six checks but told him to only cash the first two. Those checks bounced on the day after the discovery of the murders.

Baltimore County police say Parente killed his wife and two daughters before killing himself. A press conference is scheduled for 11 EDT. Previous post with details on the discovery of the deaths.
