Autopsy Reveals Homicide in Tragic Deaths of Bronx Twins

In a shocking revelation, the city Medical Examiner has declared the deaths of five-year-old twins, George and Gianna Katanka, as homicides. The autopsy conducted on the siblings, who were initially believed to have succumbed to a “medical emergency,” revealed that they were smothered to death in their Bronx apartment in December 2023.

Emergency responders discovered the lifeless bodies of George and Gianna on the living room floor of their residence on East 175th Street near Weeks Avenue in Mount Hope on December 18. At the time, authorities and sources reported that the incident appeared to be a tragic medical event. However, the recent findings from the Medical Examiner’s office have now shifted the investigation towards a more sinister direction.

NYPD Chief of Detectives Joseph Kenny, during a press briefing, had previously stated that the twins’ mother was actively involved in their upbringing, medical care, and schooling. Neighbors also described the family as loving and quiet, further adding to the shock surrounding the tragic deaths.

The twins, who were identified as “special needs” children by Chief Kenny, had been unwell and had stayed home from school on the day they were found deceased. George had been battling cold symptoms for up to two weeks and had been sent home from school the previous week. Gianna, on the other hand, had been suffering from an ear infection and had been exhibiting unusual behavior, including vomiting and acting irrationally, according to the mother’s statement to the police. The mother also mentioned incidents of biting and spitting at school.

The devastating loss of her children left the mother in such distress that she required hospitalization for observation. Meanwhile, the father, who was at work during the incident, rushed home upon learning of the tragedy.

Neighbors, who only knew the grieving mother as a devoted parent, expressed their shock and disbelief. They described her as a vigilant caregiver who rarely let the children out of her sight, always holding their hands and accompanying them to and from school.

As of now, no arrests have been made in connection with the deaths of the twins, according to the NYPD.

  1. This is absolutely outrageous and heartbreaking! How could anyone harm innocent children, let alone twins who were only five years old? It’s sickening to think that there are individuals out there capable of committing such heinous acts. These precious lives were taken away from their loved ones far too soon, and justice must be served.

    It is the responsibility of society to protect our children and ensure their safety. The fact that these young souls fell victim to such a horrific crime is a failure on multiple levels. How
