Foster son stabs foster mother to death


by Derek Smith

 Anchorage, AK--   It's this Pioneer Peak neighborhood where Alaska State troopers responded after a distressed phone call to dispatch tipped off police. 

    "The initial 911 call we got was from the female," Alaska State Trooper Spokesperson Megan Peters says. 
     On the other end of the line was 66 year old Mollie Ragonesi. 
     When police finally arrived,it was too late, Ragonesi was deceased. She was a victim of an apparent stabbing.
     "We were able to figure our where they were and go to the residence unfortunately Mollie was deceased," Peters said.
     Court documents reveal Ragonesi was a foster mom. After smelling smoke from her 19 year old's bedroom on a monday morning, she went to investigate. That's where she was met by her foster son, Kenneth Adams, who allegedly set his room on fire, in attempt to commit suicide. 
 Unable to subdue her foster son, a fight broke out. Ragonesi was ultimately stabbed in the neck and later died after phoning police. 
     Twenty four hours later, Kenneth Adams is arraigned in court. And oddly enough, as the judge read Adams his charges, the 19 year old appeared incoherent. 
    Adams interrupted saying "There wasn't multiple people, *expletive*."
    There were four persons involved.  
     At one point, he interrupted to ask a question but an attorney cut in before a remark was made. 
     Another male, Daniel Ramsey was also stabbed multiple times. He was sent to Providence hospital listed in critical condition. Adams is being charged with murder in the 2nd degree, attempted murder in the first, and arson. He faces up to 99 years in prison.
