Accused killers of diplomat from Buffalo escape

By Chris Jamele

Buffalo, NY – The case involving the killing of a US Diplomat to Sudan who hailed from the Buffalo region has been complicated by the escape of his four killers.

John Granville and his driver were killed in a drive-by shooting in 2008 while in Khartoum. The four escapees were charged in the shooting after a nonjury trial. They were condemned to death.

A search continues for the fugitives.
