Rural isolation of murdered orchestra player

The tragic death of Mary Whitaker, a popular violinist in upstate New York orchestras, remains at this moment unsolved. Mary, 61, was found dead in her isolated summer residence in Chautaqua County, killed by a single shotgun wound.

No motive has been discovered. Her closest neighbours, quarter of a mile away either side, were Amish families. The music world mourns a precious soul.
