Jewish Man that killed his wife and two children bought shotgun months before the killing

Sam Friedlander with his two children
Sam Friedlander, the Westchester man who bludgeoned his wife to death and murdered his two young children with a shotgun, bought the weapon used in the killing more than five months before he took out his family and his own life.

State Police Major Michael Kopy said in a press release that Friedlander, 50, purchased the Remington 870 and two boxes of buckshot ammunition on April 29 at All County Sporting Supply in Yonkers.
Amy Friedlander and her children were buried Sunday in Bucks County, Pa., where Amy grew up.
Friedlander, of the tony Cross River section of Lewisboro, used the weapon to kill his two children – Molly, 10, and Gregory, 8 – Oct. 18 in the family's home. He bludgeoned his wife, Amy, 46, to death in the early morning hours of the same day then killed himself with the gun. The couple was embroiled in a bitter divorce.
Kopy said a preliminary investigation showed that all proper procedures were followed in the gun purchase and that Friedlander showed a valid New York state driver’s license when he bought the weapon.
He said the investigation into the murder-suicide was in its final phase.
