Police: Canadian triple-murder suspect left northern NY

It was news that put a community on edge-- again. A search for a suspected killer who jumped the border once again focused on the border community of Mooers Forks, New York.

"It makes me think of the night Darcy was shot," said Alton Sample of Mooers Forks.

Sample is referring to the murder of his longtime friend Darcy Manor. Back in 2007, Manor was shot and killed in Mooers Forks by Glen Race. Race needed a truck after killing two people in Canada. He had crossed the border in the same area where police believe 35-year-old Justin Bresaw did. Bresaw is wanted for a triple murder.

"Kind of scary," Sample said. "It's the middle of the night, you don't know who is out walking around."

Police in Canada found the stolen car Bresaw was allegedly driving a mile behind a home in Havelock, Quebec. Bresaw is wanted for the deaths of his three roommates, whose bodies were found inside a burned out home Monday. It happened in Amos, about 375 miles northwest of Montreal. The discovery of the car Thursday night brought investigators 400 miles south of the crime scene.

"I hope they find him soon," said Moneque Paul of Havelock. "They said he is dangerous, dangerous for the kids and the people."

After ditching the car, Canadian authorities believe Bresaw traveled three miles and crossed the border into the United States in Mooers Forks, N.Y.

New York State Police say they have confirmed Bresaw was in Plattsburgh Wednesday, but they are confident the accused killer is no longer in the area. However, they would not elaborate any further. Canadian authorities say Bresaw remains on the run.

"He traveled quite a long way from here, so he is very mobile," said Agent Pierre Tremblay of Surete du Quebec.

A bit of relief for a community still trying to overcome a tragedy.

"It's not something you ever want to happen again in your life," Sample said. "It's scary."
