The discovery of a woman's body by a Bear Mountain State Park employee led to the closure of Bear Mountain Bridge Road Saturday night. The bridge itself remained open, according to Mark Lieb of Rockland Video Productions.
Town of Poughkeepsie police received a call Friday evening from Audrey Grogan's son. The man told police his father, George Grogan, called him and said he had killed Audrey Grogan.
