Yorktown Police: Murder Was Not a Random Attack
Yorktown Police Thursday are seeking to calm the public following the town's first murder in more than 15 years. Yorktown Police Lieutenant Kevin Soravilla said residents in the quiet suburban community need not panic.
He says the death of 43 year old Piotr Seweryn was not a home invasion. Rather, he says, the victim, who was shot once in the head was likely targeted, for reasons police have not yet disclosed.
Seweryn's wife Krystyn made the gruesome discovery around 1 o'clock Wednesday afternoon in the basement of their home at 3210 Poplar Street.
The homicide is being investigated by the Yorktown P.D. The Westchester D.A.'s office, the Westchester County Department of Public Safety and the County Medical Examiner's Office.
