Kevin Krim & Marina Krim UPDATE: Response To Children's Murders
on Oct 28, 2012 11:17 AM EDT
The police are currently continuing their investigation as to what possessed nanny Yoselin Ortega to murder the two Krim children, Lucia, 6, and Leo, 2, and then try to take her own life on Thursday night. Grieving parents Kevin and Marina Krim have been mourning their losses at a New York City hotel along with their 3-year-old daughter Nessie.
According to People, Kevin Krim, a 37-year-old CNBC vice president in charge of digital content had text messaged several of his friends the day following the horrific ordeal.
"Thanks for your concern. Nessie woke up this morning and is doing fine. We're obviously heartbroken."
Ortega, 50, still remains in a coma at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. The suspect is expected to be charged with the children's murders once she is medically stable.
The parents of the Krim couple were making their way to New York to be with them after they were informed of the tragedy. William Krim, the paternal grandfather of the late children, stated that his 37-year-old son met Marina, 36, at a restaurant in Venice, California. The pair tied the knot nine years ago and had moved to New York from San Francisco for his job three years earlier.
The grief-stricken grandfather spoke to the Wall Street Journal regarding the family and the shocking tragedy.
"I don't believe there could be a better family. I don't understand what happened with the nanny. They gave her vacations and they were good to her, and I believe she was good with them."
Individuals close to Marina described the former food manufacturer marketing director as a "hands-on mother" who made the decision to hire a nanny after having her third child, Leo, who just turned 2 in September.
Kevin's mother, Karen Krim spoke to The New York Times about the irony over the nightmare situation.
"They're both very careful. She didn't even leave the kids that much alone with this nanny, that's the irony of all this."
About a block away at nearby Central Park around 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Marina Krim allegedly returned to her West 75th Street residence only to find her two kids tragically dead in her bathtub. Krim also found her nanny Ortega in critical condition from what's now being described as a self-inflicted stab wound. Ortega apparently failed to meet Krim for swimming lessons that day along with her two children.
