Police say the slaying of a man in the city of Troy may be connected to the death of a man whose body was found in a creek in a neighboring town.
Troy police say 23-year-old Javier Gomez was found dead in his apartment Monday.
The Rensselaer County Sheriff's Office says a woman walking her dog spotted a man's body in a dry creek bed the next evening in the town of Brunswick, just east of Troy. The body hasn't been identified yet but authorities say they believe he was connected to Gomez.
Authorities say both men were slain but police haven't released other details.
