According to deputies, at around 5:45 p.m., New York State Police troopers observed the suspect’s vehicle in Steuben County, New York, and a pursuit ensued. Venable reportedly crashed after authorities deployed a tire deflation device.

SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. (TCD) — Deputies are searching for a 23-year-old woman they allege killed her three roommates, who were all over 60 years old.

On the night of June 4, deputies with the Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office conducted a welfare check at a home on White Street Court, where they found 77-year-old Robert McGuire, 60-year-old Gregory Powell, and 65-year-old Carol Reese all deceased from “upper body trauma.” Investigators identified the victims’ roommate, Alyssa Venable, as the primary suspect in their deaths.

Spotsylvania County Sheriff Roger Harris said his office obtained a warrant for Venable’s arrest on three counts of second-degree murder and use of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

As of Thursday, June 6, detectives are currently investigating the suspect’s possible whereabouts. According to Harris, officials believe Venable “may have shaved her head in attempt to evade detection.” She has brown hair and blue eyes and is believed to be driving a gray 2009 Honda Civic.

The sheriff’s office said they are “withholding certain aspects of the incident as to not interfere with the ongoing investigation.”
