Police question OTB clerk for second time in double homicide investigation


On Friday, for the second time, police questioned an employee at the OTB in Lansingburgh.
On Aug. 22, they first questioned the clerk at the Second Avenue gambling establishment in relation to the brutal, Aug. 19 murder of Al and Maria Lockrow.
Al Lockrow was an OTB regular and had just won a sizable amount of money but had not cashed the ticket before he was murdered.
The two were found bludgeoned to death in their 709 First Ave. home when police responded to what they thought was a routine domestic incident. Inside they found Al Lockrow beaten to death. Maria Lockrow later died of her injuries.
Witnesses said two men left the trailer holding what was appeared to be a baseball bat. The two men then took the couple’s 2013 Blue Ford Escape SUV.
Earlier, police questioned Thaddaeus Pietrak, Maria’s brother, some six hours after the murder and he said the car was spotted on the Rip Van Winkle Bridge – which spans the Hudson River between Catskill and the City of Hudson. Sources confirmed there was a “ping” or a photo of the SUV captured on the bridge shortly after the murders.

Pietrak, of North Greenbush, was arrested for trying to kill his mother in 2005 and assaulting Maria Lockrow in 2012.

Police also considered Kyle Kilgallon a person of interest.
The longtime clerk’s last name could not be confirmed Friday night. More information as it becomes available.
