Members of the Golden’s Bridge Hounds and the entire community of North Salem, New York, are shocked and in mourning over the slaying of Lois Colley, wife of senior Master Gene Colley and mother of Bruce Colley, MFH. She was found dead in her home on Monday, November 9.
Police believe that Mrs. Colley was bludgeoned to death by a small fire extinguisher, the only object missing from the house. They have asked for help from the community in their search for the suspected murder weapon and other information, but beyond that have not identified a suspect. For a fuller account, see Lisa Foderaro’s article in the New York Times.
Lois Colley was warmly regarded by the community, and was a regular presence at hunt meets, many of which were held at the Colley’s Windswept Farm. She was recently featured in a photograph in Foxhunting Life along with her husband and the Golden’s Bridge mounted field in front of the house.
We extend our sincere sympathies to the Colley family at this terrible time.
