Nearly a month after a Sodus High School senior died from stab wounds, local police are still working to make an arrest.
“The investigators continue to run down leads,” Newark Police Chief Dave Christler wrote in an email to the Times last week.
Zackary Dwello, 17, died Dec. 9 at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester. Christler said Dwello was stabbed multiple times Dec. 8 near Perkins Park.
Christler said Dwello took his parents’ car and drove to a Perkins Park parking lot. Once there, he entered an area with a large number of evergreen trees adjacent to the park. The area is close to Davis Drive near the central/eastern portion of Perkins Park, which closes at dusk.
