Police Arrest Son of 84-Year-Old Murdered Man


  1. Um,,Brian Rossel lived @ the Buffalo Psychiatric Center, which is on, um Forest Avenue.....

  2. I am a former close neighbor of the Rosell family & Brian was CRAZY from childhood on. I always said something like this was going to happen as he was sooooo nuts! No counseling, no medicine is going to help him - he needs to be put in a straight jacket in an "unpadded" room or "gently" put to sleep. Society is not safe with him in it. His father was a very kind and good man and did not deserve this.
