A domestic servant found their bodies, WPIX reported in 1994. The door was unlocked when the attendant arrived and there was no sign of a break-in.

The mother suffered from emphysema, police said at the time. The girl had a wool stocking wrapped around her neck when her body was found.

Atkinson was in a relationship with the house servant who found the bodies, sources told WPIX. The house servant was not considered a suspect at the time and was acquitted.
