Suspicious death in Schuyler County remains under investigation

The Schuyler County District Attorney’s Office is asking for the public’s help as they continue an investigation that has spanned a year.

Last year Richard Seeley was found deceased in his home in the town of Orange. It happened on August 20, 2020- and nearly a year later- the death labeled suspicious remains stuck.

He was found with a puncture wound to his chest and lungs, according to investigators, who say that they are hopeful that someone from the public can provide information that advances their efforts.
