Andrea Macko reports for Porcupine Soup that Scott Myers, known locally as a critic of the building of a new Greene County Jail, was found murdered in Catskill on Nov. 27. State Police charged Carrie E. Weiser, 32, of Catskill with second-degree murder, and she was sent to the new Greene County Jail building. Myers posted often on social media about the costs to taxpayers of the new Greene County Jail, also speaking at meetings and on local radio, and writing letters to newspapers. In 2019 the Register Star reported that the "Catskill resident and staunch anti-jail advocate Scott Myers filed a lawsuit ... involving the construction of a new Greene County Jail." Here is Myers speaking to the Greene County Legislature in 2018 about the jail proposal. Click here to play brief excerpt. Police said Myers and Weiser knew each other, but released few other details. This is the third murder in Greene County this year, while there had not been a murder in the county since 2018.
