    Troy City Council Reads Secret Ranalli Report

    Troy pays for a new report which was written by Michael D. Ranalli, a former Glenville police chief. He was selected by city police department chiefs to analyze Centanni’s findings. This document known as the Ranalli Memo has been kept secret by the city. Troy City Council members demanded a copy of the memo after learning that the Madden administration had commissioned it without their knowledge. Troy City Council is granted access to read the secret Ranalli Report.1 This report was created after Centanni's report and supposedly counters it.

    The city’s latest undisclosed report is only one of many mysterious still-hidden details in the cover-up of what happened to Edson Thevenin in the early morning of April 17, 2016.

    Naomi Jaffe states, “A lot of evidence points to the fact that not only did he lie but that he murdered Edson Thevenin in cold blood and the city, the Troy Police Department, and the Rensselaer county D.A. covered up a cold blooded murder. There's a lot of evidence that that is what happened. And that evidence starts coming in once the Attorney General forces the Rensselaer county to step back to allow the Attorney General's Office [to step in]. They can investigate but they can't prosecute Randall French."
