Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. reports that on August 23, 2020, after a lengthy investigation, Investigators from the Department’s Criminal Investigations Division arrested 20-year-old Louis Joseph Weber IV on charges that he intentionally murdered his father, Louis Joseph Weber, late last year.
On November 4, 2019, members of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched via Putnam 911 to the Post Road Trailer Park, in Philipstown, for a report of a structure fire. Upon arrival to the scene, Deputies discovered a trailer home that was fully engulfed in flames. The Deputies attempted to gain entry but were unable to due to the significant fire and smoke.
The North Highlands Fire Department arrived and began extinguishing the fire with the assistance of the Cold Spring, Garrison, and Fishkill Fire Departments. After the fire was extinguished, a search of the residence led to the discovery of the deceased body of the homeowner, 72-year-old Louis J. Weber. Thereafter, an investigation, by the Sheriff’s Department began.
Weber was charged with Murder in the Second Degree and is currently being held without bail in the Putnam County Correctional Facility.
