Clarkstown police released a statement this weekend about their progress in the homicide investigation in Valley Cottage:
The investigation into the death of Peggy Nadell at her Valley Cottage home by the Clarkstown Police Department is progressing. It is still believed the victim knew her assailant, and that there was no forced entry into the home. The Police Department continues to work closely in this case with the Rockland County District Attorney's Office, the Rockland County Medical Examiner's Office, and the New York State Police Forensic and Crime Laboratory.
As the investigation moves forward, most of the victim's family, friends and acquaintances have been cooperating and assisting the police in their efforts to find justice for Peggy Nadell. However, the victim's daughter, Susanne Scaccio-Nadell has retained an attorney and has since refused to answer any questions in regards to this investigation. Likewise, her husband Robert Scaccio has advised the police that he is also being represented by an attorney.
Anyone with information regarding the death of Ms. Nadell is asked to contact the Clarkstown Police Department Detective Bureau at 845-639-5840 of the anonymous tips line at 1-877-639-6233.
