Aside from everything else, Teena Kamal was also a member of the Massachusetts Region Tiffany Circle Society of Women Leaders of the Red Cross.
She was the Vice Chair of the group for the 2023/2024 cycle, serving alongside the Chair Karen Teller.
The American Red Cross confirmed Teena served on the regional board of the American Red Cross of Massachusetts.
“The American Red Cross is deeply saddened by the tragedy in Dover. Teena Kamal served on our regional Board of Directors and served as vice-chair of our Massachusetts Tiffany Circle,” a Red Cross spokesperson told Boston 25.
“Our hearts go out to their loved ones during this devastating time. As this is an ongoing investigation, we will refer any inquiries to the Norfolk County District Attorney’s office,”
On their website, the Tiffany Circle describes its members thus: “By investing $10,000 annually in their local American Red Cross chapters, these women follow in the footsteps of a long line of women leaders who have helped the Red Cross serve the American public in times of war and peace with disaster assistance, blood collection, safety training and countless other community assistance services,”

Rakesh Kamal Dover Ma
Rakesh Kamal was the husband of Teena Kamal Dover Ma.
He is tentatively believed to have killed her, their daughter and himself in an incredible act of domestic violence.
Norfolk County District Attorney Michael Morrissey identified the three victims who had earlier been discovered.
Morrissey refused to confirm if the incident is being considered a murder-suicide, preferring to leave the medical examiner’s office to conclude its investigation into the cause and manner of the death.
He however noted that a gun was found by Rakesh Kamal’s body.
“This is an event to remember that the domestic violence crisis crosses all socio-economic and social situations.
“During the search of the premises the police did find a firearm on the premises.
“It’s clear that this is a confined situation and is no threat to the residents of the town,”
The medical examiner will determine the cause and manner of death as soon as today, he added.
“This is very unfortunate and our hearts goes out to the entire Kamal family on this terrible tragedy,”
Morrissey said that there was no threat to the public and that “it is safe to believe that this is a domestic incident.
“It’s a safe neighborhood and the neighbhors were not aware,” he added.
‘It’s very rare to have this kind of violent situation in any community in Norfolk county, particularly Dover, it’s a small, well-run and policed community,” he continued.
“A lot of times the violence we see in Norfolk county is people who are known to each other, unfortunately,”
Boston 25 reports despite their apparent wealth, the Kamals were facing financial difficulties.
Filings in federal bankruptcy court in Boston showed Teena Kamal filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy in September 2022.
Chapter 13 is designed for individuals with regular income who are temporarily unable to pay their debts.
Under Chapter 13, petitioners must file a plan with the court to repay their creditors all or part of the money that they owe them using future earnings.
Teena listed liabilities between $1 million and $10 million in the filings, but the bankruptcy case was dismissed a month later due to failure to comply with court orders, the documents indicate.
A creditor listed among the bankruptcy filings is Wilsondale Associates LLC.
Records from the Dover Assessor’s Department show the Kamals sold 8 Wilson’s Way to Wilsondale Associates in December 2022 for $3 million, despite the Town of Dover listing the value of the property at $6.8 million.
