A distraught Bronx father tried to kill himself and his two kids on Nov. 7 after his wife left him. He poisoned a pizza they all ate, killing his son, 5, and putting his daughter, 7, in the hospital.

Tragedy struck a Bronx family on Nov. 7 when a father was so upset after his wife left him, he locked himself in the bathroom with his son, and tried to commit an alleged murder-suicide with poisoned pizza.

Law enforcement told NBC 4 New York that the kids’ parents had recently split, so they were spending the evening with their father at their step-grandmother’s apartment.

The man called his estranged wife and told him he was going to kill himself just after midnight, according to sources, so she rushed over to the apartment in the Morris Heights neighborhood of the Bronx.

Moments later, his step-mother called police saying he had locked himself in the bathroom with his son. When police and the kids’ mother arrived, the boy was unresponsive and the girl was vomiting.

They were rushed to Saint Barnabus Hospital, where the boy was pronounced dead. The girls’ condition was not immediately known.

Sources say the father told police he poisoned himself and his kids with something on their pizza. Police are still questioning the suspect.

Such a tragedy. Our thoughts are with the family during this difficult time.
