GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. - Police in Gloversville released new information Thursday morning in the murder of 42-year-old Brian Morrison, found stabbed to death on the lawn of a Gloversville home in 2010.
New information released by investigators during a press conference Thursday revealed that someone has come forward offering a description of two new possible suspects that were allegedly with Morrison the night he was killed.
Gloversville Police and the Fulton County District Attorney's Office released sketches of two men the new witness describes surrounded Morrison in a "suspicious manner."
In July 2010, Morrison was found stabbed to death on the lawn of a Bleecker Street home in Gloversville two miles from where he lived. Prior to his death on the same day, Morrison was robbed and assaulted in an unrelated incident.
The investigation has led to three women being convicted for withholding evidence, and a man, Orlando Rodriguez, has been charged with tampering with evidence.
Also, in July 2012, 29-year-old Derrick Paul was charged for his role in the robbery that happened prior to the fatal incident. He is accused of forcibly stealing Morrison's wallet and punching him in the jaw, rendering him unconscious.
A sketch artist came up with sketches of the new suspects; one man dressed in a T-shirt and shorts,
with the other wearing a baseball cap and a military style jacket, and the
collar popped up.
Investigators say the clothing on one of the suspects the new witness describes stands out.
"Back in july of 2010, this area was in a bit of a heat wave," says Louise Sira from the Fulton County DA's Office. "At night time, the temperatures never went below 80°, and July 6th was a particularly hot night, and so that should help this person stand out."
Morrison worked for the Gloversville Enlarged School District for 23 years.
The victim's family has been waiting for answers, and now they're asking if anyone knows anything about the two men in the sketches, or anything about the case, to come forward.
The victim's wife, Rebecca Morrison, says "I think that somebody out there knows, and I'm hoping that they'll hear us - hear that he was a father and a husband and friend, and they'll come and tell us what they know."
Police ask that anyone with information about the investigation to please call the Gloversville Detective Division at 518-773-4569, or their anonymous Tipline at 518-736-5561.
