Woman Charged with Murder in Death of Olcott Man Found in Alabama, New York

Kathryn A. Henry, a 33-year-old woman from Lockport, New York, has been charged with second-degree murder for allegedly conspiring to kill Michael G. Poole, a 59-year-old man from Olcott, New York, and attempting to conceal his body after he was found dead on March 19 in Alabama, New York. According to the Genesee County Sheriff's Office, Henry and another person conspired to cause Poole's death and hide his body.

In addition to the second-degree murder charge, Henry faces several other felony charges, including assault, concealment of a human corpse, hindering prosecution, tampering with physical evidence, and conspiracy. She was arraigned on Friday and is being held without bail in the Genesee County Jail.

Investigators stated that another suspect was in custody on unrelated charges, and more charges are pending against this individual in connection with Poole's death. The Genesee County Sheriff's Office emphasized that the second suspect is not considered a threat to public safety as they are already in custody.

Why this matters: This case highlights the serious nature of conspiracy to commit murder and the additional charges that can result from attempts to conceal a crime. The arrest of Kathryn A. Henry and the pending charges against the second suspect demonstrate the diligent efforts of law enforcement to hold those responsible accountable for their actions.

The investigation into Michael G. Poole's death remains ongoing, with authorities working to gather more evidence and information about the circumstances surrounding the alleged conspiracy and murder. "The Genesee County Sheriff's Office will continue to work diligently to bring justice for Michael G. Poole and his family," said a spokesperson for the sheriff's office.
