That Stabbing Pain That Wakes You Up At 3am?

If it’s not agita from that extra bowl of linguini it may be the knife in your daughter’s hands

VERNON — A 22-year-old former student at New Jersey Institute of Technology pleaded not guilty today to stabbing her father while trying to rob her family’s home in Sussex County.

Looking for something to steal, Natalia Burdzy entered the home in the Cliffwood Lake section of Vernon during the early-morning hours of Aug. 26, Assistant Prosecutor Seanna Pappas has said.

While she was in the house, Burdzy, wearing a ski mask, sweatpants and a sweatshirt, found her father, Andrzej Burdzy, 46, sleeping in a bed and stabbed him three times while he slept, said Pappas.

    Ah, the old home town ~ still lively and full of interesting characters, I see.

  2. JeffS says:

    Sounds like there are some family relationship issues for the Burdzy’s.

  3. Yojimbo says:

    Seems like there are some sharp differences between the parties. That seemed to be the thrust of the story.

    Pointed disagreement to be sure, Yojimbo.

    …and to think that I was upset with my 17 year old daughter yesterday because she forgot to make her bed. When I hear/see stories like this one, it makes me pause and realize how great my kids really are. My Dad only had one rule when I was growing up and he told me if I broke it, he’d break me. His rule: Don’t ever come home in a police cruiser.

  6. JeffS says:

    True, Yojimbo, no matter how you slice it.

  7. JeffS says:

    PS: At least the dad can safely say his daughter isn’t a pain in the neck.

    Hopefully, now dad has gotten the point.

    I’m just trying to show y’all a slice of life in rural NJ.

    On a totally unrelated topic I am not in the least bit worried that my own Dear Daughter has attended several autopsies, found them “cool”, wants to be a forensic pathologist and likes playing with knives.

    Oh and I have new locks on our bedroom door.

    Yep. Totally off on a tangent there, sorry.

  11. Yojimbo says:

    That wouold seem to be a cutting edge profession, Bingster.

    I don’t think I would prepay any of her tuition though.

  12. JeffS says:

    And I’d keep an eye on your life insurance policies as well, Mr. Bingley. I don’t think she’s go out on a limb for that, and I don’t think she’s pathological, but maybe she’s operating on a different level than us old farts, eh?
