Community where Buffalo suspect grew up searches for answers
NewsChannel 13’s Subrina Dhammi took a trip out to Conklin, New York on Monday. It’s a quiet, small town that’s a little more than two hours from the Capital Region and short drive from Binghamton.

One of the main employers is a massive distribution center for Dick’s Sporting Goods.
Many people in the town say they are overwhelmed and confused.
They had a lot of praise for the family, saying they were quiet and kind.
They say it’s hard to believe this racist, hate-filled attack could have been planned here.
