According to their family, Budhidat and his wife did not live together and had issues in their marriage.
A Queens woman was stabbed to death by her suicidal husband on November 8 night before he reportedly hung himself about one and a half miles away from their home. The man, whose body was found in Spring Creek Park, south of the Belt Parkway, is yet to be identified, "but it appears to be him,” said a police source.
According to the New York Daily News, suspect, identified as 33-year-old Dineshwar Budhidat, reportedly killed his 27-year-old wife at their home in Ozone Park. The suspect, after reportedly stabbing his wife repeatedly texted her cousin to let her know that she is dead and that he intended to kill himself. The cousin, who requested not to be named said, “He texted me he killed her. He didn’t tell me how. Why me? Why’d he have to text me that? He’s such a damn coward. Why’d he have to do that to the poor girl?”
Another cousin of Budhidat’s, Yogindra Toolaram got a frantic call from the cousin who received the text. “The text, it was along the lines of ‘I killed her. I left her in the apartment and I’m gonna go kill myself,'" he said, revealing that the two of them rushed over the house. The cousin also alerted the cops, but when the officials arrived at the scene just after 8 pm they found the woman with multiple stab wounds to her toro. Soon after, the police located the husband's body hanging from a tree.
According to their family, Budhidat and his wife did not live together and had issues in their marriage. According to sources, the two even had a history of domestic violence, with the suspect getting arrested for assault.
“Every relationship has problems. I just didn’t think the problems would be big enough to result in such violence. Every time you see a situation like this, the family members always say we never saw it coming, and I have the same answer," said Toolaram, adding, "He’s the coolest, calmest funniest guy.”
