Yonkers police searching for a killer

Yonkers detectives are searching for the killer of 70-year-old John Callan. Callan's body was discovered at his home on Waring Row on Friday afternoon.

Callan's sister first called Yonkers police to the scene after she found the back door to her brother's house was kicked in. When police arrived they found Callan dead, his throat slashed.

Some neighbors are worried, while others aren't surprised that a crime of this magnitude happened in the neighborhood. According to local residents, junkies and prostitutes frequent the area at night.

Yonkers detectives were searching through a heavily wooded area next to the house where the murder took place. The police are also looking for clues in both the victim's house and the abandoned building next door. Yonkers police boarded up one of the abandoned houses after they completed their search. Folks who live here say the cops frequently chase away junkies that use the houses.

Anyone with information is asked to call Yonkers detectives.
