Wendy Feldman, owner of Spa Elysium in Chestnut Hill, fatally shot

Wendy Feldman, 59, owner of Spa Elysium in Chestnut Hill, was shot and killed around 9:00pm Wednesday evening.

Officers arrived in the parking lot behind the spa to find Feldman and a 64-year-old man, each with gunshot wounds to the head. The man was transported to Temple University Hospital where he died later that evening. The incident has been considered a possible murder-suicide by police.

Feldman’s and the man’s vehicles were registered to the same Montgomery County address. It is believed that the shooter was Feldman’s estranged husband.

Feldman was active in the Chestnut Hill business community and respected by many of her colleagues and acquaintances.

“There are a lot of women in this community who went to her,” Anne McNally, co-owner of McNally’s Tavern, said. 

Spa employees said that Feldman’s sister will temporarily take over the business.

FOX29 reported that the Philadelphia Police Department’s Homicide Detectives Division is actively investigating the case.
