A search for a missing man turned tragic this afternoon in Horseheads.
Local law enforcement officials spent much of today trying to locate Matthew Rosno, who was also seen in the area of Hanover Square around 12 am today. Rosno was the newly appointed attorney for Chemung County.
The search took local officials to the area of Latta Brook Road in Horseheads after a cell phone ping turned up in that area. After a sweep of the area, Rosno’s body was found in a nearby field.
Police don’t know why Rosno was in the area, and the investigation continues. However Undersheriff Bill Schrom said at this time no foul play is suspected, calling Rosno’s death a “tragic accident.”
