Update: Couple Killed in Florida From Toronto
Police in south Florida are investigating the murder of a retired North York couple who spent winters in Hallandale Beach, FL.
71 year old David Pichosky and 66 year old Rochelle Wise were found dead in their condo (located between Miami and Fort Lauderdale) Thursday night after being discovered by a neighbour who had a key after the couple had missed an afternoon lunch.
Police in Hallandale Beach have yet to release details on a cause of death, suspect, or motive.
Neighbours in both Toronto (the couple lived north of Bathurst and Eglinton) and Hallandale Beach say the couple were very happy together and deeply religious.
Those that knew the couple tell Newstalk 1010 the marriage was the second for both. The pair's next door neighbour in Florida says David (who was also called Donny) had two children with at least three grandchildren. The neighbour also said that Rochelle had children of her own.
Wise was the former vice-principal of Bialik Hebrew School and the founding director of Crestwood Valley Day Camp near Bathurst and Lawrence.
In a statement the camp says "Rochelle dedicated herself to the personal growth and development of every child and staff member in her care, and to creating summer memories that would last a lifetime. With limitless energy, unwavering courage and a passion for children she was an inspiration to a generation kids, an example to day camp Directors across Toronto, and an amazing friend to those of us at Crestwood Valley. She will be sadly missed, and we extend our deepest condolences to Rochelle and David's family and friends during this difficult time."
