Man convicted in death of woman found covered in bleach


A local man was convicted of playing a role in the death of a young woman last spring.

Tamale Harris was found guilty of Manslaughter, Concealment of a Human Corpse, and Conspiracy for his role in the death of 24-year-old Keisha Richards.

In March 2018, while in the presence of Harris and two others, Richards overdosed on drugs. It’s then that police said Harris helped bleach Richards’s body, take it from the City of Rensselaer to the City of Albany, and dumped it in a snow bank.

Harris is facing 19 years inprison when sentenced. 

Jodi Noisseau pleaded guilty in September to Manslaughter in connection to the crime. Her sentencing has not been announced.

Additionally, the case against a third man, Christopher Kondracki, is open and ongoing. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.
