One dead in triple stabbing, Cuomo's request for Sandy: $42 billion, thread of bizarre plot picked up in Rotterdam, Schenectady's Dancing Lady has passed away

Update: APD says it arrested the suspect Monday evening.

Albany police say one woman died -- and two others were injured -- in a triple stabbing Monday in an apartment near Lincoln Park (map). Police say anyone harboring the suspect will be prosecuted. As of Monday night, APD says it was looking for the suspect and asking anyone with information about his whereabouts to call. APD was withholding many details related to the case -- including how the women may be connected to the suspect or to each other. [TU] [APD] [Fox23] [YNN]

Comments

So upset about "Dancing Lady". Schenectady won't be the same without her, but it was nice to learn some more about her from the article. She was always a bit of a mystery as are all of Schenectady's beloved characters.

Is it just me, or have there been a lot of high speed chases in the area lately?!
