SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - Police were back on the scene here
of what they are calling a domestic dispute involving a mother and son many
people know as Patty and Johnny.
NEWS 10 ABC's Jennifer Lee spoke with one neighbor who says
he became suspicious when he didn't see either of them for the past couple of
"We hadn't heard either of their cars move for five days,"
said Robert Colvin. He said he made the
911 call after he heard screams coming from 75-year-old Patricia or Patty
Ambrozak's mobile home. "One of patty's friends came to check on her."
Patty's friend found the dead bodies of Patty and her son,
47-year-old John Ambrozak. Police say through the preliminary investigation, it
appears to be a domestic incident that happened before the deaths.
"This is a mother that loved her son dearly, this is a
son that loved his mom," said Colvin.
Rob says he had his concerns but never to the point where
he felt he had to call police.
He continued to say Patty and Johnny owned and operated
the Bayshore Tropic Hut and Marina and also owned the property of the mobile
home neighborhood next door.
Nearby business owners tell NEWS10 ABC they were very
well liked people.
"A lot of people knew John and Patty over there. Anyone that had a boat on the lake or did any
type of boating and at one point stopped by for music or the food or had their
boat over there," said Colvin.
Rob says it's a close knit community and everyone is
devastated. He says a little piece of Saratoga's heritage has been taken away.
"These were two wonderful, loving, gracious and
compassionate people. I want Johnny's and Patty's legacy to be that. Not of
some sorrow tale of dispute.
Police say a gun was found at the scene Friday. Autopsies
were conducted Saturday. Police have yet to release exactly what happened here
resulting in these two deaths.
