Police 'baffled' in hunt for murder-suicide motive


“We’ll track down any developments that might present themselves, but as of right now, it’s a mystery as to what might have motivated Mr. Brown,” DuMond said.

Asked about the murder weapon, he agreed that a 9mm rifle was unusual, but said that it was long rifle, not an assault weapon, some of which use 9mm ammunition — as do many handguns. Willis Brown was an outsdoorsman in addition to being a college professor, so it wasn’t unusual that he would have a rifle, DuMond said.

The sheriff’s Criminal Investigation Division carried out the investigation, assisted by the Forensic Identification Unit from Troop C of the New York State Police based in Sidney.
