CARROLL – The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office and New York State Police are continuing their investigation into what is now being called a double homicide in the town of Carroll.
Frewsburg fire crews were called to a home on Wheeler Hill Road around 9:30 Wednesday morning. When first responders arrived on the scene, they found two bodies in the residence and the Sheriff’s office was immediately called in to investigate.
At first, Chautauqua County Sheriff Joe Gerace would only say they were treating it as a “suspicious incident,” but by Wednesday evening it was officially ruled a double homicide. Gerace would only say a man and a women were the victims but would not release their names.
Authorities are not saying who the suspect or suspects may be nor would they give any details of a possible motive. However, around noon yesterday, police were on the lookout for a tan colored 2003 Grand Am with the individuals in the vehicle considered armed in dangerous. The APB was reported over a police scanner, but Gerace would not discuss the details of the APB nor would he say if it was directly connected to the Carroll murders.
the Jamestown Post-Journal also is reporting that the Frewsburg School District did take precautionary measures Wednesday upon learning of the incident by cancelling all after school classes and having all students who walk home after school be escorted or picked up by their parents or guardians.
No other details are available at this time. WRFA will post any further updates we get today on our facebook page – www.facebook.com/wrfalp.
