New details have emerged in the death of a girl who attended Convent of the Sacred Heart in Greenwich a day after her body was found in her Westchester County home, police said.

Caroline Dym, 18, was killed by her father — the victim of a double murder-suicide, police said. She was entering her senior year at Convent of the Sacred Heart in Greenwich, where she was a golf standout.

At 11:10 a.m. Friday, State Police from the Somers, N.Y., barracks and the Pound Ridge Police Department responded to a home at 23 Fox Hill Road in the Town of Pound Ridge for an apparent murder/suicide, state police said.

A housekeeper reported discovering the three people dead inside the home, police said.

A preliminary investigation indicated that 56-year-old Steven Dym, killed his 50-year-old wife Loretta Dym, and their daughter, Caroline Dym, before taking his own life, state police said.

Autopsies determined that he shot his wife and daughter in the torso with a 12-gauge shotgun, then shot himself in the head, according to the New York Post .

A 20-year-old son, a student at the University of Southern California, was away at the time of the shooting but has returned to New York.

Steven Dym was CEO of a property management company. Loretta Dym was vice president for global strategic partnerships at Club Quarters Hotel in Stamford.

Pound Ridge Police Chief Dave Ryan, who was first on the scene Friday, said the deaths were a heartbreaking loss for the community and marked the only murders in his 19 years with the department, according to CBS New York.

The 4,600-square-foot five-bedroom, five-bathroom home, valued at $1.7 million, had been put on the market and was under contract to be sold, according to the New York Daily News .
