19-Year Old Kills, Dumps 5-Year-Old Cousin, Reports Him Kidnapped

Tiffany VanAlstyne’s bogus 911 call on Thursday afternoon set off a search for Kenneth White that lasted into the night, authorities said. A search dog picked up a scent at about 9 p.m., and Kenneth’s body was found in a culvert, covered with snow VanAlstyne used in a bid to hide the crime, Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple said.

VanAlstyne’s parents have been the legal guardians of Kenneth, his twin sister Cheyenne, and 4-year-old sister Christine since September, and the children had lived in the home for more than a year. Apple said he did not believe the other children were in the room where White was attacked.

VanAlstyne strangled the boy and tossed his body “like a piece of trash” over a guard rail along a rural two-lane road about 40 yards from the trailer home in the town of Berne sometime before making the 911 call just after 1 p.m. Thursday, Apple said. The child had also suffered a blow to the head.

The 911 call touched off a search that included an Amber Alert describing the kidnappers as two men, clad all in black and driving a black pickup truck.

But Apple said the interrogation of VanAlstyne and others began to yield contradictions that threw the abduction story into doubt.

“Things did not start to add up,” he said, and investigators got a warrant to return to the home, about 23 miles southeast of Albany.

The children’s mother lives in Amsterdam, west of Albany, and the father in Massachusetts. Authorities would not say why the children had been place in the care of their aunt, Brenda VanAlstyne.

“If you are going to kill me then go ahead”: Man Tries to Murder Woman over 3 Cookies

When Allen M. Hall’s 49-year-old female roommate ate three Chips Ahoy cookies, that apparently sent him into a frenzy, which almost resulted in her death.

When Hall, 23, threatened to kill his roommate when he discovered she ate the cookies for breakfast, at first she thought he was joking.

But after repeating the threats Hall attacked her, said an affidavit by Decatur patrol officer Joseph Kish.

The incident occurred about 10:15 a.m. Wednesday in a house on the 400 block of East Garfield Avenue, where Hall and the roommate had separate bedrooms.

The victim said she was dressing in a bathroom when Hall started pounding on the door, threatening to kill her.

Because she didn’t take the threat seriously she opened the door and told him: “If you are going to kill me then go ahead,” the victim later told police.

Hall shocked her with his violent response.

“Allen grabbed her around the throat with both of his hands and threw her down into the tub,” she told police, said the affidavit. “She hit the back of her head on the tub and this caused a knot on her head.”

Hall then got on top of her “and strangled her to the point she could not speak and was having difficulty breathing.”

The victim’s husband and landlady both arrived on the scene and “had to pull Allen off of her.”

She later told police she believed “Allen would have killed her if (her husband and landlady) had not been there.”

The landlady told police she was in the dining room when she heard “commotion coming from the bathroom.” When she arrived on the scene, Hall was on top of her in the tub, with his hands around her neck “and appeared to be squeezing as hard as he could.”

When the landlady yelled for him to stop, he did not relent, so she grabbed one of his arms. Then she and the victim’s husband pulled Hall off of her.

“If she had not been there she believed Allen would have killed (the victim),” the landlady told police.

During a police interview, Hall explained, “(The victim) told him to kill her, so he charged.”
