A family of four was found dead in their sprawling home in an affluent suburb after what appeared to be a murder-suicide, state police said.

The bodies of Amy and Sam Friedlander and their children, 8-year-old Gregory and 10-year-old Molly, were discovered in their four-bedroom, blue-gray, Colonial-style house in Cross River on Tuesday afternoon.

A neighbor told WCBS-TV that the couple was getting a divorce.


Molly Friedlander of Cross River died on Oct. 18. She was 10 and a fifth grade student at Lewisboro Elementary School.

Molly also attended religious school at The Jewish Family Congregation in South Salem and played local youth soccer.

"Molly was very strong in all academic areas. She was an eager learner, accepted challenges, and interested in producing quality work at all times," Lewisboro Elementary School Principal Cristy Harris said. "She was well liked by everyone. She had a positive attitude, was cooperative, patient and helpful in the classroom. An extremely delightful child."

Molly was the daughter of the late Amy P. (nee Perez) and late Sam Friedlander, and sister of the late Gregory Friedlander.

Molly is survived by her grandparents Gary and Roberta (nee Wolfman) Perez, and great grandmother Ruth Wolfman.

Funeral services took place today at 9:30 a.m. at Joseph Levine & Sons at 4737 Street Road in Trevose in Bucks County, Pa. Interment followed at Montefiore Cemetery.

There will be a memorial service for the Friedlander family at the Jewish Family Congregation in South Salem on Sunday at 12:30.
