YORK — Marcus Postell, 22, has been identified as the deceased in a stabbing Monday night on Fowlerville Road.
According to Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty, Danielle Allen, Postell’s girlfriend, called 911 to report a domestic disturbance at 3410 Fowlerville Road on the night of Nov. 22. When Sheriff Deputies arrived, they found Postell deceased and Allen injured.
“This was a long scene. I am proud of my Deputies who worked tireless hours,” said Dougherty. “We are focusing on these two individuals. […] I want to stress that there is no danger to the community, even the resident who lives in the other side of the duplex.”
An ambulance transported Allen to the hospital with injuries. Dougherty said that at no point was she taken into custody, and no charges have been filed so far.
“I am not ruling out charges and I am not ruling out no charges,” said Dougherty.
Dougherty is now officially considering this a homicide investigation.
Police believe that Allen has lived at the apartment for about the past 30 days. Postell is not thought to have resided there. Dougherty made it clear that there is no history of emergency calls for disturbances at that residence.
Investigators determined that Postell was stabbed with a knife. However, the Monroe County Medical Examiner will determine the official cause of death.
Dougherty confirmed that Allen has family ties to a law enforcement agency, but clarified that she has no ties to the Sheriff’s Office.
“I am not going to confirm anything outside of the Sheriff’s Office that are outside the scope of this investigation,” said Dougherty. “If some of you have questions for another law enforcement agency, I would direct you to that agency.”
Dougherty also confirmed that his office is being assisted by the Niagara and Ontario County Sheriffs Offices, Livingston County District Attorney’s Office and a blood expert from Corning, but that the New York State Police are not participating in the investigation and were never on scene.
