NORTH TONAWANDA, NY- Brian Lowry was arraigned at North Tonawanda City Court at just about 11 a.m. Saturday. He's charged with second-degree murder in the death of Heather Rylowicz.
According to North Tonawanda Police, the 32-year old Lowry was located by Buffalo Police and turned over the North Tonawanda Police Friday night. After being questioned by detectives Lowry was charged second degree murder in the death of 34-year old Heather Rylowicz.
Rylowicz's body was found Wednesday in her home in the 200 block of Lincoln Avenue just two blocks from the North Tonawanda police station.
"It'll never be the same without her," said her father, Frank Rylowicz.
Frank Rylowicz says he's still in shock that his daughter is gone.
"I feel sick about the whole thing her life was just taken away from her and from what I understand the way to happened was bad," he said.
So far, police have not revealed any information about how Rylowicz died. An autopsy is scheduled, but Lowry is talking. On his Facebook page, Lowry posted this message: "I'm just me. I have the best girlfriend (Heather) in the world."
"It's really hard. You should not have to bury you kids before you. they should be burying us not us burying them," Frank Rylowicz said.
Meantime, Lowry has been being transferred to the Niagara County Jail, where he's being held without bail until his next court appearance. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
