Father says murder suspect was trying to turn his life aroundDan McDonald
Family and friends of William Leo Altes III said the man they call “Billy” has struggled with drugs and alcohol most of his adult life. But they said they were stunned to hear he has been charged with murder.
Altes, 44, is accused of using a hammer and knife to kill 51-year-old Greenville business owner Lauren Lindskog Allen on Dec. 1.
Altes was doing piecemeal jobs for Allen at her Coppercreek youth camp near Greenville. He was reportedly working in trade to pay for his girlfriend’s two sons to attend the popular summer camp. Write comment (24 Comments)
