A CHEAP SHOT?
“‘We didn’t talk,’ Christy’s father, 64, said. ’We didn’t say nothing to nobody.'”
The last thing they wanted to do was jeopardize the case.
“Now, her father sees things differently. ’Nice people finish last.'”
Christy Mirack’s father quoted in the Sunday News in 2002 with parts reprinted on this site (click here).
I reprint the above today for a reason. You see, my friend Jodi and I went up to the fifth floor in the courthouse late Friday morning after viewing Coroner Diamantoni’s one page summary report on the death/murder of Lydia Colon-Torres.
First District Attorney Christopher Larsen was not expecting us but graciously said he would come out into the hall to talk.
We spoke for about 15 minutes. “Have you been in contact with her family?” was one of the last things Larsen asked. “No,” I said. I told him I can’t find a way to contact them – something I am quite sure he already knew.
“They are satisfied with the way the investigation is going,” he said.
One, I think it’s a cheap shot because there is currently no way to substantiate his comment and he is referencing a mother-of-three children whose family must still be heavily grieving.
Two, I find it very hard to believe her family is “satisfied” with her murder going unsolved for over a year.
Three, I believe that if her family does have complaints, they may well feel it is best to stay mum about them.
After all, the police may well have told them not to say anything to anybody because it might “jeopardize” the case.
Mr. Mirack is still waiting for his daughter’s killer to be arrested.
Please check back tomorrow for more with Larsen.
