Police investigate Town of Niagara death

Niagara Gazette — TOWN OF NIAGARA — The Niagara County Sheriff's Office and Town of Niagara Police are investigating a death at what is described as a "group home" in the 4600 block of Miller Road in the town.

Town police responded to the home at 6:50 a.m. Monday, after receiving a 911 call from a worker there. The employee had reportedly discovered the body of Daniel Kennedy, also an employee at the home and a Town of Niagara resident.

Sheriff's Office investigators were called to the scene as well as detectives from the Niagara Falls Police Crime Scene Unit. Reports indicated that the first officers on the scene found that "some items at the home were out of place."

Kennedy's body was taken to the Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo where the county medical examiner there performed an immediate autopsy to try to determine the cause of death.

Late Monday afternoon, sheriff's investigators released a brief statement that said, "The death is not considered suspicious and the (final) cause of death is pending the medical examiners complete report."

The medical examiner is reportedly awaiting the results of toxicology testing before making a final determination of death.

Neither the Sheriff's Office nor the Town of Niagara Police offered any further comment on the death.

No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
