Friends and family say goodbye to Josh Szostak

LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. — After four long months, family and friends of 21-year-old Josh Szostak said their final goodbyes.

Funeral services were held at St. Pius the X Church in Loudonville Saturday after a wake Friday at the Bowen Funeral Home.

Szostak disappeared back on December 23rd, after leaving the Bayou Café in downtown Albany.
After months of searching and unanswered questions, his body was found floating in the Hudson River near Coxsackie last Tuesday.

The Albany Police Department has closed the case and ruled his death an accidental drowning. However, the Szostak family has accused the Albany PD of coming to a conclusion too quickly and wants further investigation into exactly what happened that night.

  2. This is a post I hope will be relayed to the family. I saw a news story on GMA this mourning 4-28-08 Two retired NY policemen talking about a serial murder case they have been working on for a while. They have found 40 related cases across the country 3 in NY alone of College students , male, good students in all cases leaving a bar or party alone found drown. All deamed to be accidental, until one boys parents insisted that there son would of no way accidentally drown. After another autopsy was done it was found that it was not accidental and now have 40 similar cases. The Family should have another autopsy done, and look into this case.

  3. Hi Michele,

    A second autopsy is being performed today by Dr. Michael Baden. The Szostak family is aware of the other missing boys and how some of them are believed to be connected. The Albany Police were too quick to close the case but it seems the NYS Police have other ideas.
