Narrator: SET AGAINST THE BACKDROP OF THE BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS,

GALAX, VIRGINIA, IS THE KIND OF SLEEPY SOUTHERN TOWN

WHERE SERIOUS TROUBLE RARELY STRIKES.

BUT WHEN AN ALARMING CALL DOES COME IN

TO THE CITY'S 20-PERSON POLICE DEPARTMENT,

THE RESPONSE TIME IS IMMEDIATE.

[ SIRENS WAILING ]

Hines: AS LAW ENFORCEMENT, THE ADRENALINE KICKS IN,

AND I DON'T WANNA SAY GET TUNNEL VISION,

BUT YOU'RE FOCUSED ON TRYING TO GET THERE

AS QUICK AS YOU CAN.

AS I APPROACHED A SIDE PORCH,

I DID NOTICE THAT THE STRIKE PLATE

WAS LAYING ON THE PORCH ITSELF,

WHICH WOULD BE THE PART THAT HOLDS THE DOOR CLOSED.

♪♪

MS. KENNY?

ALYSSA KENNY?

THIS IS SERGEANT HINES, GALAX PD.

Hines: I WAS WALKING ALONE,

JUST MAKING SURE TO CLEAR EACH ROOM AS I GO.

OF COURSE THE ADRENALINE'S PUMPING, YOUR HEART RATE'S UP.

♪♪

I SAW MS. KENNY JUST KIND OF LAYING

TOWARD THE FOOT OF THE BED.

SHE WAS PARTIALLY COVERED WITH A BED COMFORTER.

I DID CHECK FOR A PULSE, DIDN'T LOCATE ONE AT THAT TIME.

I WENT AHEAD AND NOTIFIED DISPATCH

TO GET ME A DETECTIVE ON CALL.

WHAT HAVE WE GOT?

Cox: OFFICER HINES TOLD ME THAT HE HAD MADE ENTRY INTO THE HOUSE

THROUGH A SIDE DOOR, WHICH WAS OPEN,

AND THAT A FEMALE BODY WAS IN THE REAR BEDROOM.

WE DIDN'T KNOW WHETHER IT WAS SUICIDE, MURDER.

AT THAT TIME WE HAD NO CLUE.

Narrator: ABOUT ALL THEY'RE POSITIVE OF

IS THE VICTIM'S IDENTITY, 28-YEAR-OLD ALYSSA KENNY.

HEY! WHAT'S GOING ON?

Cox: WHILE WE WERE STANDING OUTSIDE, I SAW MIKE ALLEY,

WHO I'VE KNOWN FOR YEARS TO BE A RESIDENT OF THE STREET.

MY BOY'S FIANCéE LIVES HERE, EVERYTHING ALL RIGHT?

MIKE, I'M AFRAID I'VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS.

Alley: HE SAID, "WELL, I HATE TO TELL YOU,

BUT SHE'S DECEASED," AND... I WAS JUST SOBBING.

MY MIND FIRST --

FIRST THING MY MIND WENT TO WAS "WHERE IS THAT BABY?"

MY INITIAL THOUGHTS WERE

PLEASE GOD, LET IT BE WITH A BABYSITTER,

LET IT BE WITH THE FATHER.

DON'T LET IT BE THERE.

Cox: WE RE-ENTERED THE HOUSE, AND WE START ROOM BY ROOM

LOOKING TO SEE IF WE CAN FIND THE CHILD.

♪♪

WE GET BACK TO THE BEDROOM WHERE THE FEMALE'S BODY WAS...

ON THE BED THERE WAS A BLUE BLANKET.

♪♪

WHEN I RAISED UP THE BLANKET, THE CHILD WAS VISIBLE

AND OBVIOUSLY DECEASED, AND IT DOES HIT HOME.

THIS IS A DOUBLE HOMICIDE.

I KNOW IT'S A PART OF THE JOB, BUT THERE'S NOTHING --

NOTHING WILL EVER PREPARE YOU

FOR THE SCENE THAT WE SAW THAT DAY.

Narrator: IN GALAX,

WHERE EVERYONE PRETTY MUCH KNOWS EVERYONE,

THE VICTIMS AND POLICE CHIEF RICK CLARK

HAVE CROSSED PATHS BEFORE.

JUST OVER A YEAR AGO,

THE CHIEF WAS READING A NEIGHBORHOOD FACEBOOK GROUP

AND CAME ACROSS A PLEA FOR HELP.

Clark: IT WAS BITTERLY COLD, AND THERE WAS A POST FROM ALYSSA

THAT HER PIPES WERE FROZEN, SHE HAD AN INFANT CHILD,

AND SHE DIDN'T HAVE WATER TO MAKE FORMULA.

SO I TOOK HER A GALLON OF WATER TO MAKE FORMULA

TO FEED THE BABY.

♪♪

I WILL NEVER GET THE SIGHT OF THE CHILD OUT OF MY MIND,

'TIL I DIE.

Narrator: FOR THE GALAX POLICE CHIEF,

SOLVING THE HORRIFIC DOUBLE MURDER

BECOMES PRIORITY NUMBER ONE.

Clark: THERE WAS A CHILD INVOLVED.

I KNEW THAT IT WAS GONNA BE A HIGH PROFILE CASE,

THAT IT WAS GOING TO SCARE PEOPLE IN THIS CITY.

WE'VE GOT TO CATCH THIS PERSON.

THIS CANNOT GO UNSOLVED.

Narrator: ABOUT 20 MINUTES LATER,

AS LOCAL CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATORS WORK

TO COMPLETE A FULL CANVAS OF THE HOUSE,

ALYSSA'S MOTHER ARRIVES ON THE SCENE.

Ludy: I GOT THERE THINKING I WAS GONNA PICK UP MY DAUGHTER

AND GRANDDAUGHTER, AND WHEN I PULLED UP,

I PARKED THE CAR AND I GOT OUT,

THINKING, "WHAT IS GOING ON?"

I'M AFRAID I GOT SOME BAD NEWS.

AND HE SAID, "MA'AM, THERE'S BEEN A HOMICIDE,"

AND I -- IT WAS ALMOST LIKE TUNNEL VISION,

I COULDN'T EVEN GRASP IT, LIKE, "WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?"

Narrator: GROWING UP, ALYSSA WAS THE YOUNGEST

IN A TIGHT-KNIT CLAN OF FIVE SIBLINGS.

Francis Kenny: SHE WAS THE PRINCESS.

SHE WAS THE YOUNGEST, AND WE TREATED HER ACCORDINGLY.

SHE WAS BEAUTIFUL, SHE WAS A GREAT PERSON,

AND I LOVED HER, YOU KNOW, LOVED HER WITH ALL MY HEART.

Narrator: ALLY, AS HER FAMILY CALLED HER,

WAS FULL OF ENERGY AND PERSONALITY,

AND SHE WAS FRIENDLY AND KIND TO EVERYONE SHE MET.

ALLY WAS JUST -- SHE HAD A BEAUTIFUL SOUL.

I THINK THAT WAS HER MOST SPECIAL TRAIT.

Frank Kenny: ALLY WAS THE EMBODIMENT OF LOVE.

SHE REALLY LOVED EVERYTHING EXTREMELY HARD.

Narrator: WHEN ALYSSA WAS IN HER EARLY 20s,

A BAD BREAKUP WITH A BOYFRIEND LEAVES HER LOOKING FOR A CHANGE.

Geneva Kenny: WE HAD AN UNCLE WHO LIVED OUT IN VIRGINIA, IN GALAX,

AND HIS WIFE HAD PASSED A COUPLE YEARS PRIOR,

AND HE WASN'T IN THE GREATEST HEALTH.

Narrator: AT 24 YEARS OLD, ALYSSA TAKES THE OPPORTUNITY

TO HELP HER UNCLE OUT AS A CHANCE TO START FRESH.

WHAT SHE HADN'T PLANNED FOR WAS FALLING IN LOVE

WITH THE LITERAL BOY NEXT DOOR, AUSTIN ALLEY.

Ludy: WHAT PROBABLY ATTRACTED HER TO AUSTIN

IS SIMPLY HE IS ADORABLE AND HE'S VERY SWEET

AND CAN BE VERY CHARMING.

Narrator: ALYSSA FELL HARD FOR HIM,

AND SOON SHE FINDS OUT SHE'S PREGNANT.

SHE BECAME AN AUNT WHEN SHE WAS 15,

I THINK, FOR THE FIRST TIME,

SO THERE WERE ALWAYS LITTLE CHILDREN,

AND SHE JUST ALWAYS KNEW THAT'S WHAT SHE WANTED.

WHEN SHE FOUND OUT SHE WAS HAVING HER OWN BABY,

SHE WAS OVER THE MOON EXCITED.

Narrator: ON JUNE 6, 2014,

ALYSSA GIVES BIRTH TO HER DAUGHTER ANASTASIA.

Jessa Kenny: SHE SPENT EVERY DAY JUST, YOU KNOW,

REVELING IN THE JOY THAT WAS HER BABY.

EVERY SMILE, EVERY LAUGH, EVERY ACCOMPLISHMENT,

EVERY MILESTONE, THAT WAS HER DAUGHTER.

Narrator: 21 MONTHS LATER,

BOTH MOTHER AND DAUGHTER'S DEATHS ARE RULED TO BE MURDER.

VETERAN DETECTIVES J.B. GREER AND ROBBIE ISOM

ARE CHARGED WITH FINDING OUT

WHO COULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SUCH HORROR.

THIS LOOKS LIKE IT'S BEEN HERE A WHILE.

Greer: MIGHT HAVE BEEN SOME OLD DAMAGE ON THE DOOR,

BUT IT DIDN'T REALLY LOOK LIKE

ANYBODY HAD KICKED IN THE DOOR OR ANYTHING.

IT DIDN'T LOOK TO ME LIKE ANY FORCED ENTRY

AS FAR AS THAT GOES.

Narrator: WHAT DOES THIS MEAN

ABOUT ALYSSA AND ANNA'S MURDERER?

Greer: I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS A STRANGER.

I FELT LIKE IT WAS SOMEBODY THAT SHE KNEW.

I JUST FELT LIKE THAT SOMEBODY SHE MIGHT HAVE TRUSTED

OR SOMETHING JUST THE WAY THE SCENE WAS.

♪♪

Isom: THERE WAS A VERY STRONG SMELL OF BLEACH

THAT WAS INSTANTLY NOTICED

AFTER WE MADE IT PAST THE KITCHEN AREA

GOING THROUGH THE LIVING ROOM.

Narrator: THIS CERTAINLY SUGGESTS

THE KILLER TOOK THE TIME TO CLEAN UP THE SCENE

BEFORE LEAVING.

♪♪

♪♪

THIS WOULD EXPLAIN THE BLEACH.

THERE WAS AN EMPTY, APPEARED TO BE LIKE A BLEACH BOTTLE

OR A SPRAY BOTTLE, SOMETHING THERE ON THE FLOOR.

Greer: YOU COULD TELL THAT BLEACH WAS USED IN THE ROOM.

THERE WERE CERTAIN CLOTHES THERE

THAT THE BLEACH HAD BEEN SLUNG ON.

Narrator: AFTER THEIR EXAMINATION OF THE CRIME SCENE

AND ITS POSSIBLE COVER UP,

GREER AND ISOM RETURN TO THE POLICE STATION

WHERE ALYSSA'S MOTHER STACY IS WAITING TO BE INTERVIEWED.

MRS. LUDY, I'M DETECTIVE GREER. THIS IS DETECTIVE ISOM.

WE'RE VERY SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR LOSS.

Greer: I'VE GOT A LITTLE GRANDDAUGHTER

THAT'S JUST A LITTLE OLDER THAN THAT BUT NOT A LOT,

SO ALL YOU CAN THINK ABOUT IS

IS, "WHAT IF THAT WAS YOUR GRANDKID?"

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT WHEN YOU GOT HERE IN GALAX?

YESTERDAY.

Greer: I UNDERSTAND, TAKE YOUR TIME.

WE'RE JUST HOPING THAT YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP US

FIGURE OUT WHO WOULD HAVE DONE THIS.

ALLY DIDN'T HAVE ANY ENEMIES. YOU KNOW, NOBODY'S PERFECT,

BUT SHE WAS JUST NICE AND SWEET,

AND SHE DIDN'T CROSS PEOPLE AND SHE TRIED TO HELP PEOPLE.

WHAT ABOUT THE FATHER OF HER CHILD?

HAVE YOU SPOKEN TO HIM?

HE'S IN JAIL.

ARE YOU SURE?

YES.

HE VIOLATED HIS PAROLE OR SOMETHING.

Ludy: SHE WAS IN LOVE WITH AUSTIN.

SHE DID NOT CHEAT ON HIM, SHE DID NOT SEE OTHER MEN.

SHE HAD GIRLFRIENDS, AND -- THAT HAD LITTLE KIDS,

AND THEY WOULD, YOU KNOW,

THEY HAD THEIR OWN LITTLE FUN COMMUNITY,

MOMMY AND BABY THING, BUT THERE WERE NO GUYS.

GALAX TONIGHT, THEY ARE MOURNING AS POLICE SEARCH FOR THE PERSON

WHO KILLED A YOUNG MOTHER

AND HER 21-MONTH-OLD CHILD YESTERDAY.

I CAN'T IMAGINE KILLING SOMEONE,

BUT MURDERING A CHILD? NO.

Reporter: NOW THEIR FAMILIES HAVE A MESSAGE.

PLEASE, FOR ANNA AND ALLY, PLEASE.

Reporter: IF YOU KNOW SOMETHING, COME FORWARD.

NO DETAIL IS TOO SMALL,

BECAUSE IF SOMEONE IS CAPABLE OF KILLING THEM,

THERE'S NO TELLING WHAT HE, SHE, OR THEY WOULDN'T DO.

Clark: THE DEVIL WAS WALKING LOOSE IN THE CITY.

THERE WAS AN EVIL PERSONA HERE. PEOPLE DIDN'T FEEL SAFE.

IT AFFECTED THE WAY WE WERE LIVING.

IT AFFECTED THE WAY PEOPLE LOOKED AT US.

♪♪

Narrator: GALAX, VIRGINIA, IS A SMALL SCRAPPY MANUFACTURING TOWN,

ONE THAT'S AS WELL KNOWN FOR ITS NATURAL BEAUTY

AS FOR ITS OLD TIME APPALACHIAN MUSIC.

WE'RE HOST OF THE LARGEST AND OLDEST

OLD-TIME FIDDLER'S CONVENTION IN THE WORLD,

AND THAT'S BEEN GOING ON FOR 80 PLUS YEARS NOW.

Narrator: OVER THE YEARS, GALAX HAS HAD AS MANY UPS AND DOWNS

AS THE SURROUNDING BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS.

BUT NO ONE IN THE 7,000 PERSON TOWN

IS PREPARED FOR THE HORROR REPORTED ON MARCH 10, 2016.

Reporter: POLICE IN GALAX SAY THEY FOUND

THE BODIES OF 28-YEAR-OLD ALYSSA KENNY AND HER DAUGHTER,

21-MONTH-OLD ANASTASIA ALLEY AT THEIR HOME.

NEIGHBORS SAY THEY'RE SHOCKED.

I DON'T SEE WHAT IN THE WORLD,

I DON'T SEE WHAT WOULD HAVE MADE SOMEBODY

DO A HORRIBLE THING LIKE THAT.

Reporter: POLICE DID NOT NAME ANY SUSPECTS,

BUT SAY THEY'RE ACTIVELY PURSUING LEADS

AND INTERVIEWING WITNESSES.

Narrator: WITH HER FIANCé, AUSTIN ALLEY, IN JAIL

AND NO OTHER LEADS,

DETECTIVES FOCUS ON ALL THE FACTS THEY DO HAVE.

WE'D WENT TO TRYING TO FIGURE OUT A TIMELINE

WHERE SHE HAD BEEN, WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON TO SEE HER,

WHO HAD BEEN THERE, TALKED WITH THE NEIGHBORS,

AND THEN THE ONE WHO HAD REPORTED IT.

Narrator: AND THAT TURNS OUT TO BE ALYSSA'S NEIGHBOR,

RICHARD NOFSINGER.

MR. NOFSINGER, THANKS FOR AGREEING TO MEET US.

OF COURSE. ALYSSA WAS A FRIEND.

CAN YOU TAKE US THROUGH THIS MORNING,

BEFORE YOU CONTACTED THE POLICE?

WELL, I WAS WALKING BY, AND I NOTICED HER CAT WAS OUTSIDE,

AND SHE'S AN INSIDE CAT.

HE RECALLED, HADN'T SEEN THIS PARTICULAR LADY

AND CHILD, YOU KNOW, AND WAS CONCERNED.

DID YOU NOTICE ANYTHING OUT OF PLACE IN THE HOUSE?

NO. I MEAN, I DIDN'T LOOK AROUND OR ANYTHING, YOU KNOW.

Isom: HE DID SAY THAT HE WENT THERE QUITE OFTEN,

YOU KNOW, AND HANG OUT WITH HER.

Narrator: BELIEVING THE KILLER MAY BE SOMEONE ALYSSA KNEW,

DETECTIVES ASK NOFSINGER TO PROVIDE A DNA SAMPLE.

HE HAD CONSENTED TO HAVE A SAMPLE OF HIS DNA COLLECTED

AS WELL AS HAIR AND FINGERNAIL SCRAPINGS.

Narrator: NEXT, POLICE LOOK INTO ANOTHER REPORT

OF SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY

THAT CAME IN ON THE MORNING OF THE MURDERS.

WE GOT A CALL AT 11:32 A.M. THAT MORNING FROM A NEIGHBOR

WHO STATED THAT THERE WAS A MALE BEATING ON HER DOOR

WITH A BACKPACK.

HE APPEARED SWEATY.

BASICALLY IT SCARED HER, SO SHE CALLED THE POLICE DEPARTMENT.

Narrator: IT'S A LEAD THAT INTRIGUES POLICE.

WITH THE WITNESS STATING THAT THE PERSON HAD A BACKPACK,

WE WERE INTERESTED IN THE CONTENTS OF THAT BACKPACK.

Clark: WE WENT APPROXIMATELY 1/2 MILE IN EVERY DIRECTION,

CHECKING GARBAGE CANS, DUMPSTERS, BEHIND BUILDINGS,

IN ALLEYS, UNDER CARS.

Narrator: MEANWHILE, THE LEAD DETECTIVES WORK

TO PUT TOGETHER A CLEARER PICTURE OF THE VICTIM,

ALYSSA KENNY.

TO DO THAT, THEY MEET WITH MICHAEL ALLEY,

THE FATHER OF ALYSSA'S FIANCé,

WHO HAPPENS TO ALSO LIVE RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET.

Isom: MIKE HELPED WORK IT OUT, I THINK, TO GET HER THERE,

SO HE COULD KIND OF WATCH OVER HER A LITTLE BIT

AND THE LITTLE GIRL, WHILE AUSTIN WAS INCARCERATED.

DID ALYSSA HAVE ANY FRIENDS OVER?

I DON'T KNOW,

I MEAN, SHE ALWAYS HAD PEOPLE COMING AND GOING ALL THE TIME.

Alley: IT WORRIED ME, 'CAUSE YOU KNOW,

YOU CAN REALLY GET IN TROUBLE

BY JUST OPENING YOUR DOOR TO ANYBODY.

ANYONE IN PARTICULAR,

A BUDDY OF AUSTIN'S CHECKING UP ON HER?

YEAH, YEAH.

I SAW JESSE AND NOAH DICKSON OVER THERE A FEW TIMES,

NOAH MORE THAN THAT.

Alley: HE HAD BEEN INCARCERATED WITH MY SON DOWN THERE.

THEY WAS PRETTY GOOD FRIENDS AT ONE TIME,

BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GUY,

HE JUST GOT REAL WEIRD.

ALYSSA WAS SCARED OF NOAH, OVER JUST THE WAY HE ACTED,

WOULD JUST STAND AND STARE AT HER, NEVER SAY A WORD,

TELL HIM NOT TO COME, HE'D SHOW UP ANYWAY,

JUST THAT SORT OF THING.

DO YOU THINK SHE EVER TALKED TO AUSTIN ABOUT HIM?

I DON'T KNOW, YOU'D HAVE TO TALK TO HIM ABOUT THAT.

HE'S OVER IN COUNTY.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, THAT'S WHERE WE'RE HEADED NEXT.

Narrator: IN ANY MURDER INVESTIGATION, THOSE CLOSEST TO THE VICTIM

ARE THE FIRST TO BE UNDER SUSPICION.

AND JUST 'CAUSE HE'S IN PRISON

DOESN'T GET AUSTIN ALLEY OFF THE HOOK.

WE HAD TO LOOK INTO ALL POSSIBILITIES

OF THE FACT THAT HE, BEING INCARCERATED,

COULD HAVE GOTTEN SOMEONE ELSE TO DO IT, YOU KNOW,

POSSIBILITY THAT HE WAS MAD AT HER NOW,

AND HE WANTED SOMEBODY TO TAKE CARE OF THAT PROBLEM FOR HIM.

Narrator: NO ONE SEEMS TO THINK AUSTIN IS MAD AT ALYSSA,

CERTAINLY NOT MAD ENOUGH

TO PUT HIS DAUGHTER ANNA IN HARM'S WAY,

BUT COULD THERE BE SOMETHING THEY DON'T KNOW.

I UNDERSTAND YOU'RE IN HERE ON A PAROLE VIOLATION.

YEAH.

THIS HAPPENED BECAUSE I WASN'T THERE.

SO YOU THINK THIS IS YOUR FAULT SOMEHOW?

I WASN'T THERE TO PROTECT MY FAMILY, WAS I?

PROTECT THEM FROM?

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

FROM WHOEVER DID THIS.

Greer: MY QUESTION WAS, DID HE OWE SOMEBODY A LOT OF MONEY,

IF THAT COULD BE A REASON

AND SOMEBODY WAS RETALIATING BECAUSE OF THAT.

NO.

YOUR FATHER MENTIONED A FRIEND,

NAMED NOAH DICKSON.

SAYS HE SAID HE STAYED OVER AT THE HOUSE.

Isom: HE TOLD HER NOT TO BE AROUND HIM,

THAT HE MAY HAVE BEEN CRAZY, YOU KNOW,

YOU DON'T NEED TO BE HANGING OUT WITH HIM.

COULD HE HAVE DONE THIS?

YEAH, MAYBE. HE'S CRAZY.

WHAT ABOUT ALYSSA?

SHE HAVE ANY ENEMIES?

MAYBE GLEN LEWIS.

HE MAY HAVE HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT.

Narrator: GLEN LEWIS HAD BEEN WANTED BY THE POLICE,

AND HIS EX-GIRLFRIEND TURNED HIM IN FOR THE REWARD MONEY.

THAT WAS WHERE THIS COME FROM, THAT IT MIGHT BE RETALIATION

BECAUSE ALLY HAD HELPED HER DO THAT.

WHAT'S THE NAME OF THE EX-GIRLFRIEND,

THE ONE WHO SET ALL THIS UP?

ABIGAIL HARRIS.

Narrator: ACCORDING TO AUSTIN, THERE'S MORE TO THE STORY.

ABIGAIL HAS A NEW BOYFRIEND.

Greer: WE FOUND THAT OUT,

THAT HER AND NOAH HAD HAD A RELATIONSHIP.

THEY LIVED DOWN HERE ON MAIN STREET TOGETHER IN AN APARTMENT

FOR SOME TIME.

Narrator: IN NOAH DICKSON AND GLEN LEWIS,

DETECTIVES NOW HAVE TWO PERSONS OF INTEREST.

OKAY, THANK YOU.

HE'S OUT.

Narrator: AND LEARNING LEWIS HAS BEEN RELEASED FROM PRISON

GIVES CREDENCE TO A REVENGE THEORY.

BUT IT ISN'T THE ONLY ONE DETECTIVES HAVE BREWING.

Ratcliffe: I WAS SCARED. I COULDN'T SLEEP.

EVERY NIGHT ALL I COULD THINK OF IS WHAT IF I DON'T WAKE UP?

WHAT IF IT WENT THE SAME WAY?

THIS NEVER HAPPENS IN GALAX. IT SCARED ME.

Narrator: A FEAR THAT IS FELT DEEPLY BY LAW ENFORCEMENT.

Clark: WE KNEW THAT WE HAD AN OBLIGATION

TO MAKE THIS A SAFE PLACE, AND IT WAS NOT A SAFE PLACE

WHILE THIS MONSTER WAS WALKING THE STREETS.

THERE WAS A LOT OF DAYS WE WORKED OUR HIND ENDS OFF.

A LOT OF NIGHTS WE DIDN'T SLEEP AT ALL.

WE WERE DRIVEN AND CONSUMED

TO FIND THE PERSON THAT DID THIS.

IT MOVED BEYOND A JOB.

Criner: LAB RESULTS ARE IN.

Narrator: FORENSIC SPECIALIST AARON CRINER ARRIVES

WITH THE PRELIMINARY AUTOPSY RESULTS

ON ALYSSA AND ANNA KENNY.

Criner: THE M.E.s FINDINGS WAS -- MANNER OF DEATH

WAS HOMICIDAL IN BOTH VICTIMS,

AND THEN THE CAUSE OF DEATH FOR ALYSSA

WAS STRANGULATION BY LIGATURE,

AND FOR ANNA IT WAS ASPHYXIATION.

LOOKS LIKE THEY ALSO FOUND SOME RAW PATCHES

ON THE ADULT FEMALE'S ELBOWS AND KNEES,

LIKE MAYBE SHE PUT UP A FIGHT.

LOOKS LIKE WE WERE RIGHT ABOUT THE BLEACH.

BUT IT DIDN'T WORK.

THE LAB WAS ABLE TO FIND FOREIGN DNA.

Clark: THE CORD FROM A VACUUM CLEANER WAS USED

TO STRANGLE THE MOTHER,

AND PART OF THE DNA EVIDENCE WAS DNA SAMPLES

TAKEN FROM THAT VACUUM CLEANER CORD.

Narrator: THE MEDICAL EXAMINER IMMEDIATELY SENDS THE DNA

TO THE STATE CRIME LAB.

A MATCH COULD HELP PINPOINT A SUSPECT,

BUT THAT WILL TAKE WEEKS.

KEEP US POSTED.

Narrator: IN THE MEANTIME,

POLICE DECIDE TO PAY ALYSSA'S FRIEND ABIGAIL HARRIS A VISIT.

TO TWO OF THEIR MAIN PERSONS OF INTEREST,

NOAH DICKSON AND GLEN LEWIS.

SORRY ABOUT THE MESS.

HAD A LOT ON MY MIND.

[HEAVY SIGH] I WAS THERE, YOU KNOW.

WHERE?

OR BEHIND IT, BY THE CREEK.

Greer: ABIGAIL EXPLAINED TO ME THAT SHE HAD COME THAT MORNING

TO GO DOWN THERE TO TRY TO RENT ONE OF THOSE CABINS

FOR HER KID'S BIRTHDAY PARTY,

AND WHEN SHE COME DOWN, SHE SEEN ALL THE PEOPLE OVER THERE.

DID YOU SEE ANYTHING OR ANYONE SUSPICIOUS

WHILE YOU WERE DOWN THERE?

A MAN.

CAN YOU DESCRIBE HIM?

Narrator: ABIGAIL DESCRIBES THE SAME MAN WITH A BACKPACK

OTHERS HAD SEEN IN THE AREA.

Hines: AND THE RIVER TRAIL RUNS RIGHT BEHIND OUR CRIME SCENE.

THAT COULD HAVE BEEN SOMEBODY COMING OFF THE TRAIL.

I MEAN, IT'S REALLY HARD TO LOCATE A WHITE MALE

THAT'S SWEATING PROFUSELY DRESSED IN ALL BLACK.

LET'S TALK ABOUT YOUR EX-BOYFRIEND,

GLEN LEWIS.

WHAT DOES GLEN HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING?

YOU TURNED HIM IN TO THE AUTHORITIES IN NORTH CAROLINA,

YOU AND ALYSSA?

SHE HAD HAD A LOT OF DOMESTIC --

HIM AND HER, A LOT OF DOMESTIC PROBLEMS.

HAVE ANY IDEA WHERE HE IS?

NOPE.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU SAW NOAH DICKSON?

DOES HE LIVE HERE?

NO, NOT NO MORE.

THAT'S THE PERSON YOU NEED TO BE TALKING TO.

HE WAS ALL OVER ALYSSA.

ALYSSA'S FIANCé, AUSTIN, WENT TO JAIL,

AND WHEN AUSTIN'S IN JAIL,

HE WAS TRYING TO MAKE A MOVE ON HER.

Narrator: ABIGAIL CLAIMS IT HAD GOTTEN SO BAD ONE NIGHT

THAT ALYSSA CALLED HIS BROTHER JESSE.

Isom: SHE HAD HAD JESSE TO REMOVE NOAH

AND TAKE HIM AWAY, YOU KNOW, FROM THE RESIDENCE

BECAUSE HE WAS GETTING OUT OF HAND AND HARD TO DEAL WITH

AND SHE DIDN'T WANT HIM THERE.

SHE HAD BEEN SHUNNING HIM SUPPOSEDLY IN HIS EYES,

AND HIS WORDS WAS, "IF I CAN'T HAVE YOU, THEN NO ONE WILL."

Greer: THE THINGS THAT WAS TOLD ABOUT HIM

REALLY MADE HIM A GOOD SUSPECT.

Narrator: AND ACCORDING TO ABIGAIL,

THEY CAN PROBABLY FIND HIM AT HIS BROTHER'S HOUSE.

I WENT TO HIS APARTMENT JUST TO SEE WHAT I COULD FIND,

AND I SPOKE WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND AND HIS BROTHER

WHO WERE THERE.

ANY IDEA WHEN HE'LL BE BACK?

NOT EXACTLY.

HE GOES OFF LIKE THIS, SOMETIMES FOR A DAY OR TWO.

OR SOMETIMES MORE.

Narrator: DETECTIVES CONFIRM WITH JESSE

THE STORY ABOUT HIM HAVING TO GO COLLECT NOAH

FROM ALYSSA'S HOUSE.

LOOK, NOAH CAN BE CRAZY,

BUT HE WOULDN'T HURT ALYSSA IF THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE THINKING.

HE WANTED TO BELIEVE THAT HIS BROTHER WOULD NEVER DO

SOMETHING LIKE THAT, BUT AT THE SAME TIME,

HE HAD SAW NOAH VIOLENT BEFORE.

THAT WAS NOAH'S IDEA. IT WORKS.

THAT STRUCK WITH ME FROM HAVING THE STRONG ODOR OF BLEACH

NOAH SEEMS TO HAVE VANISHED WITHOUT A TRACE.

OKAY.

WELL IF YOU SEE HIM LET ME KNOW.

NOAH, PROBABLY 90, 95% IN MY MIND,

HE WAS THE PERSON.

Francis Kenny: THERE WAS A LOT OF SPECULATION AS TO WHO IT COULD BE.

DO YOU KNOW WHO RICKY IS?

I THINK I DO.

♪♪

♪♪

Narrator: SIX WEEKS AFTER THE SHOCKING DOUBLE MURDER

OF ALYSSA KENNY AND HER YOUNG DAUGHTER ANNA,

THE TOWNSPEOPLE OF GALAX, VIRGINIA,

ARE STILL LIVING IN A STATE OF FEAR.

AND THERE'S ONLY ONE WAY TO CHANGE THAT,

BRING THE KILLER TO JUSTICE.

THE BEST CHANCE OF DOING THAT,

LIES IN THE NEW INFORMATION ALYSSA'S FRIEND

ABIGAIL HARRIS HAS COME ACROSS.

Greer: YOU SAID ON THE PHONE, YOU MIGHT KNOW WHO RICKY IS.

CAN YOU TELL US?

AFTER WHAT JESSE TOLD ME ABOUT HIM,

I REALIZE HE MAY HAVE BEEN THE GUY I SAW DOWN BY THE RIVER.

AND DO YOU KNOW HIS LAST NAME?

NO.

Narrator: ARMED ONLY WITH A FIRST NAME,

DETECTIVES GO BACK THROUGH THEIR NOTES.

WE TALKED TO -- NUMEROUS INTERVIEWS WITH VARIOUS PEOPLE

AND DIFFERENT ONES AROUND.

WHAT IF RICKY IS RICHARD?

RICHARD?

RICHARD NOFSINGER.

THE GUY WHO DISCOVERED THE BODIES.

Greer: AND THE THING TOO, YOU KNOW YOU HAVE ALL THIS,

NO MATTER HOW SMALL THE LEAD IS,

WE HAD TO FOLLOW UP ON EVERYTHING.

[BIRDS CHIRPING]

Narrator: THE DETECTIVES IMMEDIATELY HEAD TO THE ADDRESS

NOFSINGER GAVE THEM.

[KNOCKING]

HELLO.

WE'RE LOOKING FOR A RICHARD NOFSINGER.

OH, HE HASN'T BEEN HERE IN A MONTH.

ANY IDEA WHERE HE MIGHT BE?

Greer: HE WASN'T THERE BUT WE KNEW HE MOVED AROUND.

WE PRETTY WELL KNEW ABOUT ALL THE PLACES

THAT HE MOVED AROUND TO.

Narrator: UNFORTUNATELY NOFSINGER ISN'T AT ANY OF THEM.

SO THEY BRING HIS FRIEND JESSE DICKSON

BACK IN FOR QUESTIONING.

WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME ABOUT RICKY.

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT RICHARD NOFSINGER, RIGHT?

YEAH.

WHAT MAKES YOU THINK HE HAS ANYTHING

TO DO WITH ALYSSA'S MURDER?

I JUST DO.

Greer: HE JUST FELT LIKE THAT WE WAS LOOKIN' AT HIS BROTHER

SO MUCH AND WASN'T LOOKIN' AT RICHARD.

BUT HE HIMSELF, JESSE, HAD A CONNECTION WITH RICHARD ALSO.

HE GOT PILLS FROM HIM.

Narrator: DETECTIVES KNOW BETTER THAN TO TAKE

JESSE SIMPLY AT HIS WORD.

Clark: WE KNEW BASED ON OUR PRIOR EXPERIENCE WITH NOAH'S FAMILY,

THAT THEY WOULD LIE TO TRY TO KEEP HIM OUT OF TROUBLE.

Narrator: THE DETECTIVES TELL JESSE THAT IF HE WANTS

TO CLEAR HIS BROTHER'S NAME, THE BEST THING TO DO

IS CONVINCE HIM TO COME IN FOR A POLYGRAPH TEST.

ALL POSSIBILITIES ARE ON THE TABLE AT THAT POINT.

Narrator: BUT WHEN NOAH DICKSON SHOWS UP,

THINGS DON'T EXACTLY GO AS PLANNED.

Greer: I POINT BLANK ASKED HIM,

IF HE HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE MURDERS.

AND AT ONE TIME HE GOES, "NO!"

BUT, "YES. IF YOU WANT ME TO SAY YES, YES, I DID."

TELL YOU WHAT.

LET'S TAKE A POLYGRAPH TEST AND GO FROM THERE.

HOW'S THAT SOUND?

WHATEVER, MAN.

♪♪

[HEAVY BREATHING] I CAN'T!

Greer: I COULDN'T KEEP HIM IN THE SEAT TO DO THE POLYGRAPH.

SETTLE DOWN, SETTLE DOWN, JUST RELAX.

WE DECIDED AT THAT POINT THAT WE'D JUST BACK OFF OF HIM

AND NOT APPROACH HIM ANYMORE WHILE HE WAS STILL

WILLIN' TO TALK TO SEE WHAT DID COME BACK FROM OUR LAB.

[TELEPHONE RINGING]

Narrator: FORTUNATELY, IT WOULDN'T BE A LONG WAIT.

GALAX POLICE DEPARTMENT. CHIEF CLARK SPEAKING.

Clark: MY PHONE RANG AT 4:31 P.M. ON MAY THE 17th.

IT WAS THE LAB EXAMINER IN RICHMOND WHO TOLD ME,

THAT THEY HAD IDENTIFIED RICHARD DENNY NOFSINGER

AS THE SOURCE OF THE DNA.

Narrator: AFTER TWO MONTHS, NOAH AND JESSE DICKSON ARE CLEARED.

NOW, ALL POLICE NEED TO DO IS FIND NOFSINGER

AND BRING HIM IN.

IT DIDN'T TAKE PEOPLE NO TIME TO GET HIM THE WORD

THAT WE WERE LOOKIN' FOR HIM.

Narrator: BUT NOT EVERYONE WANTS TO SEE HIM GET AWAY.

[TELEPHONE RINGING]

GALAX POLICE.

HOLD ON.

Hines: WHEN THE PHONE CALL CAME INTO DISPATCH,

ONE OF THE DISPATCHER'S TURNED AROUND AND SAID,

"HEY, I'VE GOT SOMEONE ON THE PHONE WITH SOME INFORMATION."

AND HE SAID, NOW, RICKY'S AT SUCH AND SUCH ADDRESS

GETTIN' READY TO LEAVE. HE'S IN THIS KIND OF VEHICLE.

[SIRENS WAILING]

SHOW ME YOUR HANDS!

SHOW ME YOUR HANDS. BACK UP!

BACK UP, TURN AROUND!

HANDS ON YOUR HEAD!

♪♪

Greer: IT WAS A GOOD FEELIN', KNOWIN' THAT WE HAD HIM

AND WE HAD WHAT WE NEEDED TO PROVE THAT HE WAS THE ONE.

Narrator: TO THE VICTIM'S FAMILY,

NEWS OF THE ARREST BRINGS A SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT REACTION.

I WAS DEVASTATED WHEN HE WAS ARRESTED.

AND I DON'T REALLY UNDERSTAND THAT REACTION.

BUT I SOBBED AND I CRIED AND I CRIED

BECAUSE IT JUST BROUGHT HOME TO ME,

THEY'RE DEAD, HE'S ARRESTED, IT'S OVER.

Francis Kenny: IF I'D HAVE GOT MY HANDS ON THIS GUY,

THERE WOULD'VE BEEN NO COURTS TRIAL.

THEY WOULD HAVE NEVER FOUND A PIECE OF HIM.

Narrator: WITH RICHARD NOFSINGER IN CUSTODY,

POLICE GET A WARRANT TO SEARCH HIS POSSESSIONS.

AND GOING THROUGH THE MEMORY CARDS ON HIS DIGITAL CAMERA

REVEALS A FAR MORE HORRIFYING TALE

THAN THEY COULD EVER IMAGINE.

Cox: I LOCATED FILES THAT HAD BEEN RECENTLY DELETED

AND AT THAT TIME I FOUND IMAGES OF CHILDREN

THAT NOFSINGER WAS SEXUALLY ABUSING.

SO THAT LEAD US INTO FURTHER INVESTIGATION.

Narrator: SO HOW DID NOFSINGER'S HISTORY

OF ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR LEAD TO THE MURDER OF ALYSSA KENNY

AND HER YOUNG DAUGHTER?

NOFSINGER REFUSES TO TALK.

BUT POLICE PIECE TOGETHER WHAT THEY FEEL

IS A LIKELY SCENARIO.

LIKE MANY OF THE WOMEN NOFSINGER TARGETED,

ALYSSA HAD NO IDEA THAT HE WAS A DANGEROUS PREDATOR.

Clark: MY PERSONAL OPINION IS THAT HE WAS THERE,

WHEN SHE WENT AND TRIED TO DEFEND HER CHILD,

I THINK HE WENT INTO A RAGE AND KILLED HER.

Jessa Kenny: ALLY AND ANASTASIA DIDN'T MAKE IT

BUT THEY DID STOP THIS MAN WHO HAD HURT

OTHER LITTLE GIRLS BEFORE.

THEY STOPPED HIM.

AND THEY SHOULD BE REMEMBERED AS THE HEROES

THAT THEY TRULY ARE.

Narrator: IN OCTOBER 2017, NOFSINGER PLEADS GUILTY

TO TWO COUNTS OF FIRST DEGREE MURDER IN THE CASE

OF ALYSSA KENNY AND ANASTASIA ALLEY.

I REMEMBER JUST LOOKING AT HIM AND JUST...

I CAN'T EVEN REALLY DESCRIBE THE FEELINGS.

IT WAS JUST LIKE, I COULDN'T EVEN BREATHE OR MOVE.

I LOOKED AT HIM AND I SAID, "DO YOU HAVE ANY REMORSE?"

AND HE WAS LOOKIN' AT ME.

AND I SAID, "YOU CAN ANSWER ME."

NOW, HE COULDN'T. HE WASN'T SUPPOSED TO.

BUT I SAID, "YOU CAN ANSWER ME."

AND HE SAID, "I REGRET EVERYTHING ABOUT THAT DAY."

AND I'M THANKFUL THAT RICHARD NOFSINGER APOLOGIZED TO ME.

AS CRAZY AS THAT SOUNDS.

Narrator: DUE TO HIS PLEA DEAL, RICHARD NOFSINGER

IS SPARED THE DEATH PENALTY AND RECEIVES TWO LIFE SENTENCES.

I WAS FURIOUS. I WANTED HIM DEAD.

AND MOST OF THAT'S FANTASY, WE DO THAT WHEN WE'RE MAD.

WE PICTURE WHAT WE WOULD DO.

WHAT WOULD I DO IF I COULD GET MY HANDS ON THIS GUY?

NO TELLIN'.

I AM THANKFUL THAT WE WERE SPARED A TRIAL.

AND I'M THANKFUL THAT HE IS IN JAIL

WHERE HE SHOULD BE.

[ALYSSA ON TAPE] SING ME THE ABCs.

Narrator: REMEMBERING THE INTENSE BOND

BETWEEN MOTHER AND DAUGHTER, HAS ALLOWED ALYSSA

AND ANNA'S FAMILY TO FIND A WAY FORWARD.

THE LOVE BETWEEN THEM WAS -- IT COULDN'T BE ANY MORE PURE.

YOU LOOK AT THE PICTURES AND ANNA IS LOOKIN' AT HER

AND SHE JUST ADORES HER MOTHER.

Ludy: EVERYTHING I'M GONNA DO IN MY LIFE NOW,

IS GONNA HONOR THE MEMORY OF MY DAUGHTER AND GRAND DAUGHTER

BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT HERE. AND I'M GONNA LIVE FOR THEM NOW.
