In the East Village at a citibike station at Cooper Union on Astor Place, a man sneaked up behind a woman and shot her point blank in the stomach as she was parking a bike, killing her and then shot himself. The killer, who used to work for the C.I.A. and the D.E.A., stalked this woman since she dumped him back in July, appearing while she was on a date with another man after the breakup, her dentist appointment and lurking on the street of her apartment building and was still bothering her after she placed an order of protection on him.
The prosecutors demanded any weapons he might possess be turned in, recognizing his record working with government agencies, and his lawyer denied he had any at the hearing.
Turns out the killer, with the skills he acquired at the spy agency was able to deceive his lawyer and able to adeptly follow his victim with ease eventually leading to the heinous ambush and slaying as she was docking her bike by her workplace. It was like the victim felt a semblance of security after not seeing him for weeks.
This crime should bring about some drastic necessary changes in laws and regulations concerning stalking and harassment, because the system clearly failed again. There also needs to be more public information on the weapons used in incidents like this, both licensed and unlicensed.
