Two members of the state police have been honored for their work in solving the 2008 murder case of Karl Karlsen in Seneca County.

During the New York State Police Awards Day Ceremony Wednesday, Investigators Jeffery Arnold and Thomas Crowley were honored for their work to help solve the murder of 23-year-old Levi Karlsen at a Seneca County home.

Karlsen’s father, Karl, entered a guilty plea in November, and will likely serve the rest of his life behind bars.

The investigators were part of the initial interviews, along with local sheriff’s investigators, and were able to finally get a confession from Karlsen.

Their work also led investigators to look deeper into the 1991 death of Karlsen’s wife in California.
