Clintons’ cul-de-sac neighbors shot in car

November 21, 2006


A woman who lives on the same Chappaqua cul-de-sac as former President Clinton died Monday after a mysterious shooting on an isolated road that left her lawyer husband wounded, authorities said.

Sgt. Marc Simmons, a detective, said 55-year-old Peggy Perez-Olivo died about 3 p.m. at a hospital. He said there are still no arrests.

She was shot in the head, and her 58-year-old husband was shot in the abdomen late Saturday, police said.

The couple - he a recently disbarred criminal defense lawyer, she a teacher's assistant - were driving to their Chappaqua home from Manhattan when they were shot, New Castle Town Police said. According to police, the couple were on a desolate part of Route 100 when a car cut in front of their sport utility vehicle and forced them off the road around 11 p.m.

A man with a gun got out and entered the SUV through a back door, and Carlos Perez-Olivo fought with him, police said.

Police said they had not been able to determine a motive.
