Suffolk County Clergy supports the Family of Late Tyler Lewis in a call for Justice to release the name of the killer and assailants.

An Erie County judge has rejected a request from the family of a slain SUNY Buffalo State Tyler Lewis to release grand jury minutes containing the names of the people involved in the incident. Tyler Lewis, 19, of Long Island, was fatally stabbed at the University at Buffalo’s North Campus. He was a sophomore at Buffalo State.

Judge James F. Bargnesi ruled last week that the attorney for the family of Tyler X. Lewis failed to show that sources other than the grand jury minutes would be inadequate to provide the information they wanted. According to the Judge, the family’s request also failed to demonstrate they made other unsuccessful efforts to obtain the information, aside from sending a subpoena to the Erie County District Attorney’s Office.

Based upon the court decision, Suffolk County Clergy will support the Lewis family in a call for justice to release the defendant’s name. More information on the call to action will be published in the upcoming newspaper release.

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $7,500 for information leading to the arrest or indictment of the person(s) responsible for Tyler Lewis’ death. If you have information, you’re asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (716) 867-6161.
