NY- Hudson homicide victim's name released

9-25-2007 New York:

HUDSON - Police today confirmed that Valentine G. Wadman is the homicide victim found Sunday morning along the railroad tracks.

Wadman, 52, was a dishwasher who often drank away his paycheck, and who did not have a steady home, according to acquaintances. He may have been living in the wooded area where his body was found along the CSX railroad tracks near South 7th and Union Streets.

Wadman died from a brain laceration caused by a skull fracture, Columbia County Coroner Angelo Nero said. Police have ruled his death a homicide and are conducting interviews of those who knew him, Hudson Police Lt. Richard Paolino said.

It was reported that he was killed by blunt force trauma to the head. That was three years ago, and as of this writing, the murderer[s] of Valentine Wadman Jr. remains at large in the new Hampton’s. ..Source.. 1-13-2010
