The two suspects and victim are all males and 16 or 17 years old, Altamont Police say. A pair was reportedly looking for marijuana when the deal went bad and they dragged the dealer from their car.

New York State Police public information officer Mark Cepiel said the investigation in the murder of a family of four last October was still ongoing and there was no new information. But, he said, all evidence had been removed from the house, and the owners were free to do as they pleased with it.

National Grid was contacted and immediately responded to the scene to fix the line.

The old machine has been tucked over in the back corner of a barn on the Altamont fairgrounds for years now, according to volunteer Andy Tinning.

While the officers were speaking to Franz, a quantity of cocaine, packaged for distribution, was observed in plain view by the driver’s side seat.
