On November 7, 2017, the Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) arrested Robert J. Murray Jr., 19 of Wellsville, NY, Andrew Elliott, 19 of Andover, NY and Spencer S. Carl, 17 of Wellsville, NY for one count of Criminal Negligent Homicide (E Felony) each.
On October 22, 2017, Gregory M. Dunne, 18 Andover, NY was taken to Jones Memorial Hospital and was found to be deceased upon arrival. Further investigation revealed that Murray, Elliott, Carl and Dunne drove from Allegany County to the Rochester area to purchase heroin. During the trip to Rochester, Dunne was snorting heroin and was observed to have become unconscious but was still breathing.

Murray dropped off Elliott and Carl before taking Dunne to Jones Memorial Hospital.
All three suspects were processed at SP Amity. They were arraigned at the Town of Amity Court and remanded to the Allegany County Jail on $50,000 cash, $100,000 bond. All three are to return to Amity Court later in November 2017.
