The woman who was killed by a falling tree in Armonk has been identified as the wife of a New York Yankees executive, according to the Associated Press.
The team released a statement Thursday evening about Cathy Tusiani, saying she was "beloved by out front office staffers, who were privileged to experience and bear witness to her kindness, intelligence, sense of humor, and great love for her husband, Michael, over the two-plus decades of dedicated service he has provided the Yankees organization and the Steinbrenner family. As we share in the pain and grief with Michael, daughters Alexa and Julia, and the entire Tusiani family, the Yankees stand with them to offer our complete support and unconditional love as we navigate this unimaginable loss."
