For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of New York

BUFFALO, N.Y. — U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that a federal grand jury has returned an indictment charging Anthony Neubauer, 36, of Falconer, NY, kidnapping resulting in death. The charge carries a mandatory minimum penalty of life in prison.  

Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael J. Adler, who is handling the case stated that according to the complaint, on May 27, 2014, Neubauer kidnapped an individual identified as J.A. Neubauer then transported J.A. from New York to Pennsylvania, resulting in the death of J.A.

Neubauer was arraigned this afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah J. McCarthy and is being held pending a detention hearing on March 28, 2023.

The complaint is the result of an investigation by the Jamestown Police Department, under the direction of Chief Timothy Jackson and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Miraglia.

The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
