Case Update (Grand Jury)

Good evening, Friends:

Iíve got to drive my daughter home from basketball practice, then attend a school board meeting. Iím often at these until after 11 pm, so I wanted to update people on my cousinís case.

This morning, the Chenango County (NY) grand jury heard testimony about John Guzy, 56, of Bainbridge, who shot my cousin and his son in a case of ďroad rageĒ on 10-27. They returned indictments for the following:

-- murder, 2nd degree;
-- attempted murder, 2nd;
-- two counts assault, 1st;
-- two counts criminal use of a firearm, 1st;
-- two counts criminal possession of a firearm, 3rd;
-- tampering with physical evidence;
-- operating a MV at .08 or more BAC, misdemeanor;
-- six counts possession of firearm, 4th degree.

Also, I had another op-ed in the Norwich newspaper; it is not available on-line. And yet a third should be in another area newspaper this evening, again not available on-line (for a week).

Off to pick up my daughter.

Peace,
H2O Man

4. Outstanding! He's toast, as he deserves to be.

To think he wanted to pass the blame....
May he spend many years in prison. Asshole.
All the best Pat.

5. Well that's a good start.

I didn't understand from the previous post that I saw that this was road rage. That's really messed up. Apparently the Grand Jury agreed and I am happy for that. Hopefully it won't take forever to prosecute.

9. That's how Grand Juries are supposed to work.

Get to it and get it done. No Ferguson-style Grand Jury stand-off business. When did this happen, H2O Man? I've been following your posts, but can't remember the time-line. Best wishes to you and your family. I know the holidays are going to be hard for all of you. What's probably best is if you concentrate on the little ones. They will pull you through.

14. Haven't really been around much but just googled the case..

What heartbreak your poor cousin must be going through. The account of his scribbling down the killers plate number while trying to aid his poor son made me cry. How horrible for all of you. I can't even begin to imagine what you're all going through.

...and I hope they put the bastard away for a long time. It won't bring poor Derek back but Guzy won't be able to hurt anyone ever again.

19. Thank you so much for this update

I find myself checking in regularly for your posts, and it looks as if things are getting very serious for Mr. Guzy. Am wondering if your cousin has been released from the hospital yet. It would be wonderful news if that's the case. Please convey to him the thousands of people by now nation-wide who are with you in solidarity for justice.

I hope the prosecutor goes after him and puts him away forever. So sad for your family and hope you are holding up. The trial must be so stressful on top of everything else. Best to you.

22. Looks like he may be getting the hammer.

He should have been given therapeutic help before his rage got to this.

Your cousin, his son and family did not deserve to be the target of his uncontrollable explosiveness.

Grieving well is a beautiful strength.

and for representing your cousin. seems like 1st degree would be more like it. was the family consulted by the DA? do they have victim/survivor services where you live? my advocate and counseling were so vital after my daughter was killed. my heart goes out to anyone who has to endure this terrible experience. hoping for justice.

31. It's obviously capital murder

 

It was premeditated just prior to the shooting.

The perp should be spending forever behind bars.

news, at least he will be off the streets and unable to hurt anyone else, hopefully forever.

I'm glad the residents of your area saw past that and will make him stand trial.
