Second Suspect taken into custoday in Warsaw:
Two in jail as police continue to investigate violent double murder 
in Alexander late Friday night 
Investigators continued Monday to attempt to piece together the events that led up to a double murder at a dairy farm late Friday night.  Genesee County sheriff’s investigators are refusing to release any information regarding the murders, other than the names of the two men charged.

Prince N.K. Wilson, 23, of Albion and Raul S. Cruz, 18, of Warsaw and formerly of Albion, were both charged with second-degree murder and committed to Genesee County Jail without bail.

P.N.K. Wilson
The men are accused of murdering two Hispanic men who lived at an employee bunkhouse at Blumer Dairy Farm at 10216 Alexander Rd. (Route 98).

While the police have not released a cause of death, The Daily News learned that both men were stabbed to death.

The investigation began about 10 p.m. Friday when the Genesee County Emergency Communication Center received a phone call about a disturbance at 10216 Alexander Rd. When deputies arrived, they discovered the two dead men inside a dwelling on the property. Smoke was coming from dwelling and after the fire was extinguished, it was determined that the two males had been the victim of a homicide, according to the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office.

The victims have not been identified pending notification of their families. Investigators on Monday would not say whether the families had been notified.

Two suspects were identified and Wilson was located in Batavia. He was taken into custody a short time after the murders.

Police did not say where in Batavia Wilson was found. He was clothed in what appeared to be a hospital gown and had cuts to his head and face in his mug shot.

Cruz was not located until Saturday afternoon when he was taken into custody in Warsaw.

The search for Cruz drew an active law enforcement presence to Wyoming County where sheriff deputies in patrol cars were seen at various locations stopped alongside patrol vehicles from Warsaw Village Police and state police.

A particular area of interest appeared to be railroad tracks at the bottom of Burke Hill near Saltvale Road in Warsaw, where the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office had positioned a patrol car. Village and state police vehicles also stopped briefly at that location.

Police, though, have not officially said that the manhunt was in relation to Cruz. No law enforcement agencies issued any alerts for the public during the search.

The Sheriff’s Office, in a news release, said the investigation “indicates that this was an isolated incident and that there is no threat to public safety.”

It was not clear where Cruz was found.

Both men are familiar to law enforcement, particularly in Albion.

While Cruz, because of his age, does not have a public criminal record, he was the subject of a search when he was 14. He and a 12-year-old girl were reported missing and were found safe a day later.

Albion police at the time said they were very familiar with Cruz but would not elaborate because of his age.

Wilson, however, has a criminal history that includes arrests for burglaries, resisting arrest and failure to appear in court in 2017 and a 2019 burglary that landed him in state prison.

Wilson served less than five months of a one-to-three year term and was released Jan. 16, 2020, according to state Department of Corrections. His parole expired Jan. 20 of this year.

Wilson also has a twin brother with the same first name who in January was indicted and charged with shooting another man during a gun battle in the village in August.

Prince Z. Wilson is charged with first-degree criminal use of a firearm, a class B felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison, two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment.

He is accused of twice firing shots at Jonathan Jimenez, 23, of Clarendon on Aug. 8 and Aug. 14. The second incident resulted in Jiminez being shot in the leg.
