A depressed Scarsdale doctor mysteriously vanished Sunday – and her physician hubby has told cops, “I think she’s dead,” was just found dead in the Bronx.
Dr. Mark Greenberg, 61, received a one-word text message from the cellphone of his wife, endocrinologist and mom of two adult children Mona Shimshi Greenberg, 55, after she left the couple’s tony Tudor home at around 01:00 p.m. on Sunday:
Greenberg called the cops after his wife – who has been under psychiatric care – failed to return home by 06:00 p.m. Police tracked her cellphone, and at 09:35 a.m. yesterday, found her 2008, gray Honda CRV parked on the side of a desolate road leading to the NYPD shooting range at Rodman’s Neck in the Bronx.
A woman’s body – believed to be that of a missing Scarsdale doctor – was pulled by Police from the Eastchester Bay earlier today near City Island.
There were no signs of trauma. Scarsdale police said the car was locked and there were no signs of a struggle.
A rulling on the cause of death is pending to be announced later by the Medical Examiner’s Office.
Shimshi, was chief of endocrinology at Bridgeport Hospital.
Her husband has hired a lawyer.
