JERUSALEM, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a body found in the Finger Lakes is believed to be a missing Rochester-area man whose estranged wife and two sons are charged with destroying evidence of a crime at his townhouse.

Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn says nobody has been charged with killing 50-year-old Craig Rideout of Penfield. But his estranged wife, Laura Rideout, was charged Thursday with evidence tampering.

Yates County Sheriff Ron Spike says the body found Wednesday near Penn Yan had been strangled and disfigured by acid. O’Flynn said it’s believed to be Craig Rideout.

Laura Rideout’s lawyer Michael DiPrima declined comment Friday after he bailed her out of Monroe County Jail.

The couple’s sons, 19-year-old Alexander and 22-year-old Colin Rideout, were being held in jail after being charged with evidence tampering. Information on their lawyers was unavailable.
