Two people are dead in Clinton County, N.Y., the victims of an apparent double murder. Now police are searching for a possible killer.
New York State Police were called to a home on Route 374 in Dannemora just before 4 a.m. Sunday. Someone living inside the home, which is separated into three apartments, called police to say someone was trespassing on the property. When police arrived they found evidence of forced entry. As they made their way inside they also found the bodies of a man and a woman. Both appear to have been shot.
Police have not identified the victims but said one of them lived in the home. Neighbors and co-workers at the Clinton Correctional Facility say the male was long-time Dannemora resident Tim Carter.
"Tim was a happy-go-lucky guy, who seemed to enjoy life," says Ricky Coryer, a neighbor who says he and Carter served as altar boys together when they were younger.
At a press conference, Sunday, police would not comment on who called police. They did say that during the call someone mentioned the name Tony Pavone. Police stopped short of calling the 52-year-old Morrisonville resident the shooter but called him a person of interest. Police have been unable to contact Pavone. They believe he is driving his black 2001 GMC Sierra pick-up truck with New York plates EAK 3536.
"He should be considered armed and dangerous," said New York State Police Major Richard Smith.
Anyone who sees Pavone or his truck should not try to approach him but call NYSP in Plattsburgh at 518-563-3761 or contact 911 immediately.
