A Westchester County man with ties to Bayside was caught up in legal troubles before he killed his wife and daughter in a murder-suicide.

Steven Dym, 56, was found dead near the bodies of his wife, Loretta, 50, and his daughter, Caroline, 18, on Friday, Aug. 25, at their home in Pound Ridge. According to the New York Daily News, Dym shot his wife and daughter with a 12-gauge shotgun before shooting himself in the head.

Dym was CEO of the property management company Gabriel Management Corp., which is located at 42-19A Bell Blvd. in Bayside.

Robert Walsh, who is representing the property owners, told the Daily News that there is $180,000 in tenant payments to Gabriel Management Corp. that did not appear in the management reports. It was also stated that Dym was asked to turn over the books and records, he refused and stated that he could not find them.

More recently, the Daily News reported, in 2014, Dym faced the Manhattan Supreme Court after a property owner claimed that Dym’s companies weren’t performing their necessary duties, including failing to collect the tenants’ security deposits.

QNS contacted Gabriel Management, which declined to comment on the matter.
