EDENWALD, the Bronx (PIX11) — A mother and her 6-year-old daughter were found stabbed to death in a Bronx apartment late Saturday night, and the man who was suspected in the horrific killings was also found dead on Sunday, police said.
Gabrielle Muniz, 26, and her daughter were found inside a Monticello Avenue apartment, police said. They were found by police responding to a wellness check just before midnight.
Both victims, who suffered “stab wounds about their bodies,” were unconscious and unresponsive, officials said. Police sources said multiple knives were found inside the home. Emergency medical services responded and pronounced the victims dead at the scene.
Hours after the gruesome discovery, police said the man suspected in the deaths, 34-year-old Caleb Duberry, was found dead inside a residence on Bivonia Street. Police had responded to a call for a barricaded gunman. Sources close to the investigation told PIX11 News he took his own life.
