VanAlstyne told police that masked men broke in and abducted White while she was babysitting him and his two sisters ages five and six.

The whole thing turned out to be a lie and a decoy.

White’s body was found about 100 yards from their Knox home off Thatcher Park road, buried in a snow bank.

VanAlstyne accepted a plea deal of 18 years to life.

According to Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple the case is not completely closed.
