Police have found the SUV stolen after a Lansingburgh couple was brutally beaten to death on Aug. 19.
Details are scant, but sources did confirm police have recovered the blue 2013 Ford Escape SUV owned by Al and Maria Lockrow.
Where it was located and the condition it was found is unclear. Also unclear is if finding the vehicle assisted investigators identify and/or locate the suspects.
The couple was found beaten inside their 709 First Ave. home when police responded to what they thought was a routine domestic call shortly after 2 a.m.. Witnesses claim they saw two men walking away from the home carrying something that looked like a baseball bat.
Al Lockrow was pronounced dead on the scene. Maria Lockrow later died of her injuries.
Police have questioned Thaddeus Pietrak, Maria Lockrow’s brother who was arrested in 2005 for allegedly trying to kill their mother and again in 2012 for assaulting Maria. They also twice questioned a clerk at the Lansingburgh OTB where Al Lockrow was a regular. Kyle Kilgallon was considered a person of interest.
More information as it becomes available.
