Authorities say they have “every reason to believe” a New York police chief attempted to massacre his family a week ago – ultimately killing his own son, the family dog’s own dog and seriously injured his wife. Now, adding another layer to the tragic story, it was reported that just two months before the shooting, someone attempted to transfer $40,000 into the deputy minister’s bank account.
That bank transfer attempt was flagged and paused, according to records obtained by Syracuse.com.
Expected amount to be transferred from the account of the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office to the deputy’s personal account Isaac EamesThe 48-year-old, who would then point the gun at his family and then himself, the news agency reported, citing “a source who requested anonymity because the county investigation is continuing.”
Fraud officers at the bank in question notified Onondaga County officials of the suspicious, pending transfer, and the transaction was never fully processed.
On Monday, February 7, 2022, Isaac Eames died. He was discovered unresponsive around 7:30 a.m. that day at his family’s home in Clay, NY, after a neighbor called 911 to report multiple gunshots.
Wife of deputy foreign affairs department, 46 years old Karen Eamesand his son, 21 years old Troy Eames were also there, suffering their own bullet wounds. The victims were rushed to Upstate University Hospital.
According to the sheriff’s office where he worked, the deputy minister’s body was found in the front foyer of the mansion. His son’s body was found on the landing of their stairs; he was shot at close range in the head. Karen Eames was found in a bedroom near the front door. She was shot twice: once in the face and once in the arm.
“There are indications that he shot his son, wife and dog and then turned the gun on himself,” said Onondaga County Sheriff Gene Conway said in an interview with Syracuse.com. “No sign of struggle…no sign of any drawn argument.”
“We have every reason to believe that [Isaac Eames] must be held accountable that he was the one who opened fire, both at members of his family, and then turned the gun on himself,” said Conway. added comment for Albany, NY ABC branch WTEN.
Troy Eames is remembered in his obituary:
Inside this strong young man exists a kind, cute and sensitive soul. He always wanted to please people and cared about those he loved. He will be very sad but will always be remembered as “Momma’s Boy”.
The victim is survived by his brother, Andrew Eameswho were not present when the shooting happened.
Karen Eames, who was also somehow able to dial 911, is currently recovering and is believed to be in good condition as of last Thursday. She was initially admitted as critical and then turned serious. She recently spoke to the police about the incident, according to Syracuse.com.
One GoFundMe for the family established by a relative to help with funeral costs and to help support surviving members of the Eames family:
