KNOX, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Albany County Sheriff Craig D. Apple, Sr. has announced that on Friday night, December 18 will mark the one year anniversary of the tragic death of 5-year-old Kenneth White.
A candlelight vigil and memorial is planned in honor of Kenneth White and will take place on Thacher Park Road in the Town of Knox.
As a result, a short section of Thacher Park Road between Suto Road and Thompsons Lake Road will be closed from approximately 6:30 p.m. until 7:45p.m. on Friday.
Sheriff Deputies strongly suggest that drivers avoid this area altogether if at all possible between the hours of ceremony. Those needing to travel on Thacher Park Road, either to or from the Town of Berne, will find detours in place at both Beaver Dam Road and Thompsons Lake Road.
Those participating in the memorial ceremony will be allowed to park along the roadway but caution should be exercised as the road will be open to heavy pedestrian traffic.
