Friend of wife in Cross River tragedy rejects claim she was abusive

A longtime friend of Amy Friedlander, one of the victim's of last week's triple murder-suicide in Cross River, is rejecting claims that the wife and mother was abusive toward her husband.

Amy Siskind attended Cornell University with Amy Friedlander, pledging the same sorority together and both moving to Westchester to raise their families.

Siskind says that Sam Friedlander was a frustrated and controlling individual in the times that she met him.

She adds that the only warning sign before the tragedy was that three months earlier the sisters of their sorority gathered together, but Amy missed the event without warning.
