NEWBURGH – Police are investigating the murders of three people – two men and a woman – whose bodies were found in an apartment at 98 South William Street in Newburgh early Wednesday morning. They had all been shot.
Two of the victims of the 2:40 a.m. incident were dead at the scene and a third died at St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital a short time after arrival.
The corners down the street were lined with people from the neighborhood watching and speculating. Since the investigation was fresh and ongoing, police released little information.
