Unsolved Murders in Buffalo and Western New York Continue to Baffle Police

Police in Buffalo and Western New York are still searching for leads in a series of unsolved murders that have left victims without justice and their families without closure. Cold cases present significant challenges for law enforcement, as witnesses may forget details, relocate, or pass away, while others may simply choose not to come forward. This leaves investigators heavily reliant on evidence collected from crime scenes, which may not always provide a complete picture of the tragedy.

Despite these difficulties, recent breakthroughs in cold case investigations have given hope to solving these unsolved homicides. Authorities are offering rewards ranging from $5,000 to $11,000 for information leading to the resolution of these cases.

One of the oldest cases involves James Adamski, an 18-year-old who was last seen leaving a Halloween party at the 5&23 bar on Transit Road in Cheektowaga on October 31, 1982. His body was discovered in a shallow grave off Ransom Road in Lancaster on December 26, 1982. Adamski died from head trauma.

Other victims include Mr. Byrd, who was shot and killed on January 9, 2017, at 44 Cornwall Ave in Buffalo; Haygood, who was shot and killed on October 10, 2018, in the area of Moselle and E. Delavan in Buffalo; Scott, who was killed on May 8, 2019, on Cornwall Ave in Buffalo; Texidor, who was killed on July 7, 2019, at Pennsylvania and Trenton in Buffalo; Lopez, who was killed on June 9, 2018, at the Bowl-In on Bailey Ave in Buffalo; Phillips, who was shot on May 31, 2019, in Buffalo; and William Humphrey, who was killed on February 7, 2010, in the parking lot of Maggie’s Bar on Military Road in Buffalo.

Authorities urge anyone with information related to these murders to contact the police at 716-867-6161 or submit an anonymous tip.
