Divorce News, 2009: Watertown native Debra Silver in murder/suicide in NYC, no affair was going on

I’ve been hearing rumblings that, in fact, Debra Silver was not actively involved in an adulterous affair with Michael Ruiz at the time of the murders on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. While it appears that the parties may have at one time been lovers, that relationship had ended and Debra had moved on and was trying to put that chapter of her life behind her.
She had had in vitro fertilization and was looking forward to being a mother. Michael Ruiz was an out of control man who was facing the end of his marriage and decided to blame his ex girlfriend for all his troubles, thus he killed her.
Is this factual? I don’t know. But this is what I’ve been hearing. Whatever the truth was, however, this story is still extremely sad, and is the ultimate cautionary tale.
