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.

William Leo Altes III, the man accused of killing Greenville resident Lauren Lindskog Allen, didn’t enter a plea during his Friday, Dec. 5, court appearance.

On the advice of his public defender, Robert Zernich, Altes agreed to wait until Dec. 19 in order for Zernich to review the evidence in the case.

Wearing striped jail clothing, the shackled and expressionless Altes quietly conferred with his appointed attorney before Plumas County Superior Court Judge Ira Kaufman read the charges against the 44-year-old Butterfly Valley man.
