Man to Face Judge in Walmart Death Case

Anthony Cogni, WIVB, November 2, 2011

Luis Rodriguez Flamenco, a Honduran national and illegal immigrant, will make his first court appearance Wednesday for the stabbing death of 45-year-old Kathleen Byham. {snip}

Scott Byham did not want to go one camera, but said his daughter Kathleen Byham was an artist who graduated from Buffalo’s Performing Arts Academy in the 1980s. This year she got her PHD in Art.

Her life was cut tragically short earlier this week when she was allegedly stabbed to death by Honduran national Luis-Rodriguez Flamenco in an attempted carjacking gone bad.


This isn’t the first time this year an illegal immigrant will stand before an Albion judge for murder.

Albion resident Ted Zahniser said, “I think we’re just tired of it all.”

This is the third murder in Albion this year. One is unsolved and in the other two cases, the suspects are also illegal aliens.
