Zoom meetings are the new way to connect family, friends, co-workers and loved-ones during this COVID-19 pandemic. However, one zoom call was the last time Dwight Powers had a chance to ever speak again.
In New York, Dwight Powers was on a regular call with 20 other people, where he was attacked and killed by his 32-year-old son, Thomas Scully-Powers. The incident happened around 12:04 p.m. where Scully-Powers stabbed him to death, and then jumped out of a window and fled his Amityville neighborhood.
The Suffolk County Police received the tip from the several other people participating within the chat. Scully-powers did not make it far, and was caught within an hour by authorities. He now faces charges with murder in the second degree.
Suffolk County Police stated in a statement issued, “further information would be provided once the suspect, who sustained minor injuries, was treated and discharged from hospital.”
However, the main motive of the son’s attack on his own father is unknown and is under investigation.
