JAMESTOWN – Crime scene investigators worked with divers to drag a body believed to be Sean Carpenter’s out of the murky Chadakoin River on Tuesday.
An autopsy will be conducted today at ECMC in Buffalo to determine the cause of death in a case that has stirred bad memories for many long-time residents.
Carpenter’s disappearance, dubbed suspicious by police, started on April 11th when he was reportedly last seen walking down Pine St. from E.2nd St. towards 1st St.
Around the same time Carpenter was reported missing, the bodies of two other men were found dead in Pomfret and Randolph, respectively.
On April 20th, Jamestown Police called on the State Police to assist them with an aerial search.
That search reportedly included the Chadakoin River but exactly what part we are still unsure.
Police have been tight-lipped about the case up to this point.
On April 30th, Jamestown Police Chief Harry Snellings confirmed that the search for Carpenter included the Federal Bureau of Investigation and “several other agencies.”
“I can tell you its an everyday thing,” said Snellings.
We will provide an update on the results of Carpenter’s autopsy once the information is made public.
