The teenage son of one victim is being being questioned as a possible suspect after three people, including a child, were found stabbed to death inside an apartment in the Bronx on Sunday morning.
Both Jonathan Rivera and his son Kayden Rivera were found repeatedly stabbed inside their building on East 136th Street in Mott Haven at 8 a.m.
Also targeted in the deadly attack was Kayden’s mother, 33-year-old Hanoi Peralta.
Eyewitness News learned on Monday that Jonathan Rivera’s teenage son checked himself into the hospital with cuts on his hands. The staff said he also made statements about hearing voices in his head.
Family members of the victims are trying to come to terms with the heartbreaking loss.
Less than one month ago, the family celebrated Kayden’s 5th birthday.
In an exclusive interview by phone, Peralta’s sister told Eyewitness News that she wanted the world to know just how special Hanoi and Kayden were. For her safety, Eyewitness News is not revealing her name.
