Arrested: Tompkins County Man Charged With Second Degree Murder


Larry R. Walrad Jr. was found and arrested for the charge of Second Degree Murder, a Felony, on Friday May 12th in Candor, NY.

Walrad was named a person of interest by the Tompkins County Sheriff after an unattended death back in March was recently ruled a homicide by Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton after an autopsy was conducted.

On May 4th, a grand jury within Tompkins County indicted Walrad on the charge mentioned above, but the indictment was sealed until he was located by police 8 days later. Recently, the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office asked for public assistance in locating him.

It was on Thursday, around 11pm on May 11th, a tip came into the Sheriff’s Office that Walrad was seen on Main Street in Candor, NY. Officers from the Tioga Sheriff’s Office and the New York State Police conducted an extensive search of the area and found a bike believed to belong to Walrad. He was then located the following day.

Walrad was arraigned in Tompkins County Court for the murder charge and remanded to Tompkins County Jail on no bail.
