The real-life murder of Malcolm “Bruce” Kellogg in 1991 in Seneca County sounded like the plot of a made-for-television movie, as indeed it would later become.
Kellogg, 43, was fatally shot on June 9, 1991 while he slept on a couch in his family’s cottage on Cayuga Lake in Romulus.
His wife, Laurie Kellogg, then 26, plotted the murder. She drove four teens the 200 miles from the couple’s home near Harrisburg, Pa. to the cottage where an 18-year-old boy who wanted to be her lover shot Bruce Kellogg four times before jumping back into the pickup truck and driving away. The five were quickly caught.
