Suffolk police had learned that Leitgeb was on a hiking trail in Dutchess County and notified state police. After an extensive search, he was found in a densely wooded area in the Appalachian Trail late Tuesday afternoon, police said.Authorities said Leitgeb was armed with a box cutter and threatened to injure himself further after apparently cutting his wrist and throat. After a prolonged standoff, he was taken into custody, police said. He was transported to Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital in Poughkeepsie for treatment.Suffolk police homicide detectives charged Leitgeb with second-degree murder. His arraignment has been delayed, pending release from the hospital. Leitgeb, according to multiple reports, is a retired NYPD Transit Officer.Leitgeb’s wife, 42-year-old Tricia Odierna, was found dead inside her Lake Grove home on Oct. 1, police said. Investigators have yet to reveal what caused her death.A family friend who launched a GoFundMe account to raise money for the slain mom’s twins and a stepdaughter described Odierna as “one of the most beautiful souls I ever had the honor of knowing.”“She was my best friend, confidant, sister I never had,” the friend wrote on her GoFundMe page, which has already received more than $20,000 in donations. “She had a heart of gold and to know her was to love her.”
LocalNews Amendment to DSS Act will affect pensioners by: – February 27, 2012 Tweet Share Share 10 Views no discussions Sharing is caring! Secretary-General Thomas LetangSome pensioners will be disadvantaged by a recent decision to increase the contribution rate and age at which persons receive pension from the Dominica Social Security (DSS).That’s according to the General Secretary of the Dominica Public Service Union Thomas Letang.Parliament approved an amendment to the DSS Act last week Wednesday, increasing the contribution rate and pension age to 65 years.“We will agree that the DSS embarked on some consultation exercise with the wider public and to me their sole responsibility was to inform us of the financial problem that the DSS was having. They informed us that if anything was not done, within 20 years, there will be no more money in the scheme therefore consultations were held at increasing the age and payments. They were totally silent as to what happens to someone who retires at sixty but have to wait until whatever age to get their pension,” Letang told a press conference last week.He said the matter should have been addressed by government and not the DSS.“I believe that matter should have been addressed by government and not social security because it is the government that passes the law, they are the ones who deal with public officers. As I speak to you now, there are persons who will be 60 in March and they would have to wait six months before they receive their pensions. There are some statutory institutions where people will attain their sixty years sometime next month, again they will have to wait some time before receiving their pension,” he explained.Letang said he had written to the Dominica Air and Sea Port Authority, asking that they provide the staff with employment while they wait for their pension and it was declined.“I believe government has not fully addressed that situation. If government is legislating the age that which people get their pension is at 65, you also had a responsibility to put measures in place to take care of these people for the period that they retire and until they get their pension,.” He said.Letang said the matter will be addressed at a membership meeting this week.Dominica Vibes News Share
