56 Year Old Psychologist Killed in Brutal Slaying

A 56 years old psychologist was hacked to death in her own office at East 79th Street, Manhattan. Kathryn Faughey was killed, allegedly by her own patient on Tuesday February 12. Another doctor was also injured with his attempt to save the shrink. He was seriously injured with cuts to his face and was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital Weill/Cornell.

The doorman said that the person he saw enter the premises on that specific time looks like a psycho and never went back the same way. Maybe he used the basement as an escape exit, say the doorman.

Faughey is a licensed psychologist who is known in practicing cognitive behavioral therapy, which focuses on changing thoughts that cause feelings or behaviors.
