Chemicals found in Delmar home deemed non-hazardous

ALBANY, N.Y. – The Department of Health has given the all-clear on a collection of chemicals removed from a Delmar doctor’s residence on August 8.

Dr. John Hotchin passed away in early August, and family members found chemical materials while cleaning out his Paxwood Road home.

Police blocked off the neighborhood and removed the chemicals for testing as Hotchin worked closely with infectious diseases.

The DOH deemed all the materials non-hazardous and said no one was in any danger at any time.
