Girl, daughter of NBC vice president, killed; dad arrested

Hord-White was not at the family's New Rochelle home at the time of the fatal attack.

Police officers responded to a home in a condo complex in New Rochelle around 3 p.m. Tuesday. He told Mahon that Gabriel was "in her room resting". Police said they are investigating whether the father called the school to say she would not be at school Tuesday or whether anyone called the home when she did not arrive at school that morning. The cause of her death is believed to be asphyxiation by suffocation pending confirmation by the Westchester County Medical Examiner. It said the couple were living apart and had shared custody of Gabrielle.

The babysitter went to check on Gabrielle only to find the seven-year-old girl not moving or breathing in her bed.

"She was attractive and I know the family, just - she was the light, she was the light of their lives", Mahon told the station.

Hord-White and her family said words couldn't sum up "all that Gabrielle meant to us" and "she was our light".

The mother's family said Wednesday it's "broken and devastated" Gabrielle is gone. While we begin to mourn privately, we thank those friends, colleagues, neighbors and strangers for the tremendous support that we've already received.

'In lieu of flowers, the family kindly request donations be made online at the hordfoundation.org, P.O. Box 4671 Danbury, CT 06813'.

It's unclear why Neil White had his wrists covered in blood, but he presumably tried to kill himself by cutting the wrists. "I want to see her!'" It will not be easy, and will never be over, ' he told WCBS.

He added that there's 'no logic or reason' for this awful crime.

White pleaded not guilty to the charge and is being held without bail, WLS reports. He's due back in court June 15.

Mayor Noam Bramson said Wednesday was "an exceptionally painful day".

He faces 25 years to life in state prison.

Neil White was treated for his wounds at a hospital.
