Crews search for body of heiress' daughter
Emergency crews continued scouring the Hudson River Saturday in search of the body of a Rye Brook woman who jumped from the Tappan Zee Bridge Thursday night.
The victim was identified as 38-year-old Annie Petrillo, the daughter of the newspaper heiress Anne Scripps Douglas. Douglas was killed in 1994 by her husband Scott Douglas at their Bronxville estate. Following the murder, Scott Douglas also jumped to his death from the Tappan Zee Bridge.
Police say they found a suicide note inside Petrillo's vehicle, along with her purse.
On Saturday, police boats assisted divers in the recovery operation , but without success. Officials say it could take weeks to locate Petrillo's body.
