Just how a young Batavia woman died remains a mystery this morning.
An autopsy on the body of 24-year-old Alyce Huntoon failed to show any physical injuries that would explain her death.
Alyce was found unresponsive in her car late Wednesday night near East Main and Vine Streets.
She was taken to UMMC and pronounced dead.
Police hope toxicology tests, which could take several weeks to complete, may provide the answers they need.
In the meantime, says Detective Pat Corona, the investigation will continue:
“We have items of evidence we will be submitting for toxicology. But we will not just wait for results. We will continue to interview people and track down her (Alyce’s) timeline.”
Alyce worked at Tully’s restaurant. Friends tell WBTA that she worked on Wednesday night. Police declined to say who found Alyce in the car. Friends and witnesses tell WBTA the discovery was made by a former boyfriend, Chris Scoville.
Alyce was the mother of two children, a daughter Ava who is 3 and , a son, Maddox, 2.
Genesee Community College is on the move in Livingston County.
GCC’s Dansville Campus will be re-located this summer from it’s leased location on Route 63 to the former Dansville Middle School.
The former school is just two miles away.
GCC’s Board of Trustees approved the move this week, noting the increased enrollment at the Dansville Campus required more room.
Albion Police should release their files in the case of an unexplained shooting death last summer of David Grove.
That’s the opinion of the New York State Department of State, at the request of WBTA News.
Grove was shot in Albion last August, in the basement of a burned-out home. Police say Grove was burglarizing the home at the time. But they never named a suspect, or offered an explanation for the use of deadly force.
Repeated attempts by WBTA News to secure that information were denied by Albion Police.
Now, the state’s Committee on Open Government says Albion Police have no acceptable reason to withhold the information. The Committee’s opinion is not binding, but it does analyze the law and offer insight as to how the matter would be treated in court.
The Cuomo administration has reached a contract deal with some state correctional officers. The new contract covers roughly 16-hundred members of the state Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association who are not eligible for arbitration.
Officials say the contract for the rest of the union's 18-thousand members is still not settled.
