Monday, forensic investigators continue to piece together the events that lead to Earl and Mary Myatt’s death. According to police the two were on the tracks around 2:00 p.m. Sunday.
"Whenever people die in such a tragic fashion and you can think of the extent of damage it makes the scene quite large, cause we don’t want to miss anything," said New York State Police captain Francis Coots.
That’s why forensic investigators are at the scene again today, to map and measure every detail.
According to police, Mary Myatt was recovering from a brain aneurism and was diminished both mentally and physically.
The Myatt’s were part of a missing persons report after Earl Myatt called his son brad saying quote, "that he was sorry for what he was about to do," police also say they found a suicide note inside the Myatt’s car not far from the scene.
"I don’t think it’s ever common seeing two people struck by a train, but I think, unfortunately, that it’s all too common you see people on the tracks when they're not supposed to be there and they do get injured or killed, but in this are it is a fairly rare occurrence," said Coots.
Speaking with investigators at the scene Monday they say they're back at the scene finishing up because they couldn’t map the entire scene due to the train being on the tracks Sunday.
