Bi-County Chaos; Two Dead Bodies, One Missing Man: 15 Days Later, Still No Answers

JAMESTOWN – For the families of the two men who were discovered deceased last week, closure may be an agonizingly slow process considering the fact that both cases have raised suspicions with investigators.
State Police identified the man found in the Town of Portland last week as 47-year-old Brian Heyden.
Authorities describe Heyden as a transient who was known to go back-and-forth between Portland and Fredonia.
Heyden was discovered by a motorist along Route 20 shortly before 3:30 on Saturday afternoon.
Troopers are calling the death suspicious and have said that no other information will be released at this time as the investigation continues.
Approximately two hours later in the Town of Randolph, a couple out enjoying a four-wheel excursion discovered the body of 48-year-old Wilfredo Colon Rodriguez Jr., by a wood pile off of a dirt road about a half mile from their home.
WNYNewsNow has been in contact with both of families.
Heyden’s father was reached by telephone on Tuesday night.
“Did they say how he died?” asked Phillip Heyden.
When we told him that specific information had not been released yet,  he paused and asked us to text him an email address where we could receive a statement.
As of Wednesday morning, we were still waiting for the statement.
Heyden refused to elaborate on what  or how much he knew about his son’s case.
We have also been in contact with Rodriguez Jr’s son, Wilfredo.
“I want to wait before I talk to you guys,” he said. “I don’t want to jeopardize a police investigation,” he added.
Meanwhile, social media has been the preferred method of communication for the friends and family of Wilfredo Colon Rodriguez Jr.
Wilfredo’s cousin posted on her Facebook page,”sadness, anger, rage and numbness are on repetitive cycle, I’ve never hated anyone but now I hate someone I don’t know!”
