Buffalo, NY (May 10, 2019) – The man who was reported to have been missing following a house fire that injured three people in Elmwood Village on Wednesday morning, May 8th, has been found. Tragically, investigators discovered the remains of 55-year-old Curtis Brown inside the home.
Authorities stated that Browns’ body was found at 8:41 a.m. on Thursday, May 9th, by a police K-9.
