ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Dozens of officers scoured two separate crime scenes in Rochester for hours Sunday.
At the site of a Dayton Street home, investigators discovered a body buried in the backyard.
“Our investigation into this missing person led us to this location; however I want to caution you, we have not positively identified the body,” said Rochester Police Chief Michael Ciminelli.
Officers and prosecutors from the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office have been on the scene since Saturday
That discovery comes amid an investigation into the disappearance of 33-year-old Moran Wilson. Police say the Rochester man has been missing since last Friday under suspicious circumstances.
Now police are asking for help locating a missing car related to the case.
“It’s a 2009 Mazda CX9, color red, New York plate number HJA-6910. We don’t want anybody approaching that vehicle, but if you spot it we ask that you call 911 right away and let us know where you see it,” said Ciminelli.
In an unrelated investigation, Rochester Police also discovered a body in an empty lot near the intersection of Miller and Council Streets. They say that a resident of the neighborhood there reported finding the body on Sunday.
Police have not yet identified the body or the cause of death, but did confirm it is a homicide.
Both of these investigations are ongoing.
