    34 years after Lackawanna murder, police charge victim’s husband

    Michael Rodriguez, 59, was arrested at about 6 a.m. today at his Pries Avenue home by state police and Lackawanna police along with a state attorney general investigator. State police reopened the long unsolved murder case in 2009 at the request of Lackawanna Police Chief James Michel.

    In reviewing the cold case, State Police Senior Investigator Christopher Weber took a second look at forensic evidence gathered in the cemetery, used scientific technology that did not exist at the time of the slaying and reinterviewed witnesses, gleaning additional information.

    Rodriguez pleads not guilty to murder charge in ’79 cold case slaying

    The South Buffalo man charged with murdering his wife 34 years ago in Lackawanna was ordered held without bail today.

    Michael Rodriguez, 59, pleaded not guilty before State Supreme Court Justice Russell P. Buscaglia.

    Prosecutor Paul McCarthy of the State Attorney General’s Office asked that Rodriguez be held without bail based on what he called the strong evidence against him in the slaying of Patty Rodriguez. Her body was found with 108 stab wounds on April 13, 1979 – Good Friday – in Holy Cross Cemetery. She was 21 and the mother of two children.

    McCarthy told the judge the defendant’s DNA was found on the victim’s clothing.

    108 stab wounds, what a horrible death. I'm glad the DNA has brought him to face justice for her death, and that all the agencies worked together on the case.
