'Spooked' witness says he spotted Mero near burial spot

One day after Shelby Countermine mysteriously vanished, a Coeymans man says he spotted a person resembling Edward “Ted” Mero in the same remote woods where the woman’s body was later discovered.

Gerald Weidman told jurors at Mero’s double-murder trial Thursday he spotted the mysterious figure between Tracey and Payne roads in Coeymans on Dec. 4, 2014. He said he went back a day later and noticed the snowy muddy spot contained a large footprint that looked as if something was buried beneath it.

“It just spooked the hell out of me,” Weidman said, noting he ran home. “I went in the house and I told my wife the man that we’d seen there yesterday either buried a person or a hunting dog down on that pipeline.”
