Sixth months later, murderer still at large in Lee homicide

NORWICH – After nearly six months since the murder of a Town of Norwich man, investigators have not released any new developments in the case or identified any suspects.

Police discovered the body of William E. Lee, 61, at his Tanner Hill home along State Route 23 with a single gunshot wound to the head on Nov. 13.



Dozens of New York State Police Investigators and Troopers descended on the scene following the discovery and coordinated with the Chenango County Sheriff’s Office and Norwich City Police Department in running down leads.

State Police even set up a temporary base of operations in the City of Norwich, on the second floor of the city’s police station.

An autopsy revealed that the 61-year-old Norwich native was killed by a gunshot wound to the head a few days before a relative found his body and called 911. Police gave no specific date, but said they believe Lee was killed sometime around Nov. 9.

On Nov. 18, troopers removed the crime scene tape surrounding the murder scene after being stationed at the site for 24 hours a day since the discovery.
