Case against Hamlin double murder suspect heads to grand jury

October 03, 2018 08:15 AM

The case against the man accused of killing his two former Brockport High School classmates has been waived to a grand jury.

Deputies say 19-year-old Mason Earle admitted to shooting and killing two men, but he did not say anything about the car fire where the victims' bodies were found or what led up to the shooting.

Alexander Burrow, 20, and Bruce Kane, 18, were found shot in a burned car behind a warehouse in Hamlin on Sept. 10. Deputies believe Earle killed the pair over a marijuana dispute. He's charged with two counts of second-degree murder.

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office and its SCUBA team spent last Friday searching the Erie Canal in Brockport.

No word on what they were searching for but it may be related to the weapon that was used in the killings. 

Investigators say the suspect and the victims knew each other and all graduated from Brockport High School.
