A Schenectady man heading to Chicago on Amtrak was found dead this morning on the tracks in Rochester.

Troy resident Patrick Zabawczuk, a 44 year old, was apparently dragged for a short period and suffered lacerations and head trauma.

Reports state that the victim was apparently drinking on the train and had been disruptive to other passengers. He got off the train at the Rochester stop and was not allowed to get back on the train.

Police believe he tried to then jump on the train as it departed and was dragged a short distance leading to his death. Here’s more on the story from the Times Union.
