Son Of Man Who Killed Family In Murder-Suicide Makes Shocking Comment During Eulogy

A devastated young college student flew back to his home town on Monday to attend the funerals of his whole family. Last week, the man's father committed murder-suicide, taking the man's mother and sister as well. At his father's funeral, while paying tribute to the dad he remembers, he broke down.

William Dym, a 20-year-old college student living in Los Angeles, had to fly back home to New York under the most disturbing circumstances. William's father, 56-year-old Steven Dym, his 50-year-old mother, Loretta, and his 18-year-old sister, Caroline, were all found dead in their Pound Ridge home last Friday.

The housekeeper walked into the mansion and found the bodies. Authorities assessed that Steven shot Loretta and then Caroline before turning his gun on himself. The deaths have been ruled a murder-suicide.

Since the deaths, it has been discovered that Mr. Dym was struggling with legal and financial problems. In a recent court case, he was accused of stealing money from clients at his realty business, Gabriel Management. Dym was the CEO of the business, which was started by his father.

Steven Dym paid a settlement of $50,000 in 2014 to an associate who sued him. This year, Mr. Dym was accused of taking at least $22,000 from one of his clients, and then failed to give any evidence of previous financial records.

"We don’t know what happened to the books. We don’t know how much money is missing and we were in active discovery," said the plaintiff's lawyer.

The family was gearing up for the legal battle and about to sell their lavish suburban home in upstate New York for money.

"I’m in such utter shock, Loretta and just the way she spoke about her husband — her kids were her life. It seemed that they were very happy," said one neighbor, who was stunned by the news.

Family and friends poured into St. Patrick's Church in Bedford, New York, where the funerals were held. William was seen in tears, being comforted by loved ones. He was the main speaker at the funeral and wasn't ready yet to condemn his father for his acts. At this time, the surviving family member felt the need to remember his father fondly, calling him 'the greatest man I ever knew'.

"He is my hero," William said in the eulogy. "No matter what the circumstances, my love for him is everlasting. He truly was the happiest human being I have ever encountered, and his happiness will continue to be a part of my soul forever."

William went on to speak about his sister Caroline, saying, "She truly was the most bright and happy girl I ever knew. She truly cared about me and loved me so much and I will be forever grateful. Caroline, I love you and I will miss you forever."

The young man seemed to struggle the most in getting through his mother's eulogy.

"No one worked harder than she did to help my father provide for our family. Even when times got rough she would push through and make everything alright. She always put us before herself and she always enjoyed talking about me and my sister’s accomplishment, so matter how big or small they were."
