A landscaper working for Paloma Partners CEO Donald Sussman has been accused of murdering his daughter and trying to kill himself at Sussman’s Greenwich, Conn., mansion.
Adam Dobrzanski, who worked as a live-in landscaper for Sussman, stabbed his 20-year-old daughter to death before turning the knife on himself as part of a murder-suicide plot, Greenwich police said. The 55-year-old was being treated for self-inflicted stab wounds at Stamford Hospital.
Dobrzanski was found on the evening of Dec. 30 with multiple injuries. His daughter, Amanda, was found in a locked bedroom with her throat slashed.
The landscaper’s estranged wife, Renata, who works as a cook for the Sussmans and was traveling with them in the Virgin Islands, called the police, saying she was concerned about her daughter and that her husband has been threatening to kill himself.
Dobrzanski is scheduled to be arraigned today. He is being held on $1 million bond until then.
