Dr. William Winkler, a New York gastroenterologist, is being considered a suspect in the death of his wife Janet Baran (67), apparently strangled inside their home on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
Baran was discovered in her luxury home at 110 East 87th St, with abrasions on her neck, just after 10 p.m. Wednesday and declared deceased at the scene. Their wounds were “consistent with strangulation”, according to police sources. And it seemed that was dead inside the house for more than a day.
The doctor, who called 911 insisting that he hadn’t seen his wife in a couple of days, was arrested at the scene for violating Baran’s order of protection, reported New York Post.
Investigators are now investigating whether he was involved in his wife’s death, but the case has yet to be declared a homicide. The couple had history of domestic violencepolice sources said.
“Be careful what you wish for,” said Donna Perri after finally finding out that her sister Janet Baran had been strangled on the Upper East Side by her abusive husband. @Tomtracyv @lmcshanenydn @NYDailyNews https://t.co/bsOahSzSZM
