New York financial expert Jules Reich stabbed his pediatrician wife to death inside their $2.7 million mansion, Scarsdale police maintain. Reich, 61, is being questioned about the murder of Dr. Robin Goldman, 58, and is reportedly the prime suspect in the horrific killing.
Jules Reich is a wealthy mergers and acquisitions professional who works at the top NYC firm WeiserMazars LLP. His wife worked as a pediatrician in the Bronx. On Wednesday morning, Reich called 911 to report that a woman was “seriously injured” on the estate property in the New York City suburb, the Journal News reports. The murder of the doctor is the first homicide to occur in the affluent town since 1977.

Here’s an excerpt from the 911 call placed by Jules Reich.
“Respond to 50 Lincoln Road, the report is a female has been hurt, seriously and no further information was given by the calling party.”
The 911 dispatcher told the squad to wait outside the home until law enforcement officers could arrive. The medics’ attempts to save the life of the Bronx pediatrician were unsuccessful. Reich was arrested at the scene and is expected to face charges related to the death later today. The NYC financial expert reportedly sustained “defensive wounds” to his arms during the domestic dispute.
Adam Reich, the son of Jules Reich and Robin Goldman, told the New York Post that his mother was a “great, a great person, amazing” before the grieving young man was overcome by emotion. The couple also reportedly has three other children in their 20s.

During an interview with the New York Daily News, Scarsdale Police Captain Thomas Alpizio said that the murder of Dr. Robin Goldman was the result of a domestic dispute. Captain Alpizio also went on to say that the fatal stabbing of the pediatrician was not a “random act.” Court records reportedly indicate that Jules Reich had filed for a divorce last August. The petition is still pending before the court, Heavy notes.
Dr. Robin Goldman worked at the Comprehensive Family Care Center and still lived inside the 6,400-square foot mansion. Whether or not the couple had reconciled or if Reich also still lived inside the Scarsdale home remains unknown. Goldman was also an assistant professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and was affiliated with the Montefiore Medical Center.
Julius “Jules” Reich has worked in the mergers and acquisitions field for more than two decades, according to his LinkedIn profile. He has been at his current post at WeiserMazars LLP since 2014. The employer deemed the accused killer a “leader in corporate consulting” on the company website. He previously worked at PricewaqterhouseCoopers for more than a decade and was a partner at the financial firm.
Reich stated on his social media profile that he had been “involved in” transactions totaling more than $45 billion over the course of his career. He also noted that his professional background includes working with members of the venture capital, healthcare, real estate, retail, and technology industries. He counted various securities, hedge fund, and banking clients in his financial services portfolio.
Both Jules Reich and Dr. Robin Goldman were active members of a modern Orthodox congregation, the Young Israel of Scarsdale, the Westchester Jewish Center, and within the Jewish community. Reich bought the mansion in 1997, according to public property records. The home was built in 1947. The lavish NYC suburb estate encompasses 1.3 acres and includes a greenhouse, bathhouse, and a swimming pool.
