In an act of violence, a father from New York, identified as Patrick D. Proefriedt, has been charged with murder after allegedly firing a crossbow at his wife. The horrifying and senseless act resulted in the tragic death of their three-week-old infant daughter. The incident took place in the early hours of Monday morning, in the town of Colesville.
According to Broome County authorities, 26-year-old Proefriedt engaged in a heated argument with his wife when he aimed the crossbow at her. Tragically, the bolt struck their infant daughter, Eleanor M. Carey, in the upper torso, before hitting the mother in the chest. Despite emergency responders’ attempts to save the baby, she was pronounced dead at the scene.
After removing the bolt, Proefriedt allegedly tried to prevent his wife from contacting emergency services before fleeing the scene in a red pickup truck. An extensive search operation involved multiple law enforcement agencies, patrol units, and drones. The suspect was eventually captured less than a mile from the home.
