BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A neighbor reporting a foul odor uncovered a homicide along Fisher Street in Buffalo.
The body of 18-year-old Rosaun Williams was found in the backyard of a home between Fisher and Erb Streets, between Lang Avenue and East Delavan Avenue, Monday afternoon. Police say the body had been there for several days.
