CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – A small tight knit Chicopee community is now at the center of a murder-suicide.
Residents refused to talk to 22News Saturday afternoon, after discovering their neighbor Mary Danehy was allegedly murdered by her 15-year-old son on Thursday.
According to The Hampden County District Attorney’s office, Danehy’s son Joshua Guyette stabbed her to death, and then shot and killed himself.
A neighbor who lives next door declined to go on camera, but told 22News she’s still in shock.
Montell Johnson of Chicopee told 22News, “You don’t really hear a lot of bad stuff in Chicopee. That’s one of the reasons why I came here, so it’s surprising to hear something like that.”
88-year-old John Danehy heard a gunshot and alerted the police. He was in the home on Saturday, but declined to talk with 22News.
