JOHNSONVILLE, N.Y. (NEWS10) — After nearly two years, the 2018 death of a Johnsonville woman is now officially being investigated as a homicide.
Multiple toxicology reports found high levels of strychnine, a compound found in rat poison, in 31-year-old Megan Dyer-Maclean‘s body. It’s a compound that is not commonly used in rodenticide anymore.
Dyer-Maclean’s body was found alongside old railroad tracks in Johnsonville in June 2018. The Rensselaer County Sheriff’s Department had been calling it a suspicious death until they received the toxicology report.
Investigators said they have hundreds of leads but are still looking for more information.
