Around 1:45 p.m. Saturday, Ellenville Police received a call from Sherre Gilbert asking authorities to check on her mother, Mari Gilbert, at 9 Warren Street. Arriving officers noticed Mari’s car in the driveway.
Officers then tried to make contact with anyone inside the apartment, but didn't get an answer. Police soon spotted what appeared to be a body on the floor.
