A man walked into the Alex’s Mini-Market in Little Havana on Sunday, and after pretending to buy a carton of milk, had the cheek to spray the cashier with an unknown chemical.
As he clutched his face, the psycho hit him in the back of the head six times with what authorities think was a small hammer. The man then stole two packs of cigarettes and peeled off on his mountain bike.
Is the world going crazy or what….over cigarettes??
Jerome Isaac, 47, is the man that doused a 73-year-old Delores Gillespie with gasoline and lit her on fire in a Brooklyn elevator. Being carried out out of the 77th Precinct stationhouse in Brooklyn on Sunday, Isaac confessed to the killing claiming that the elderly Gillespie owed him money after work he did in her apartment. In August, Isaac put an invoice on Gillespie’s door demanding more than $2,000 in payment for work he said he’d done for her. Gillespie hired Isaac to help clear clutter in her Prospect Heights apartment but axed him for stealing, cops and relatives said. Isaac was caught on video wearing an exterminator’s mask, gloves and backpack canister, waiting for the elevator to open in Gillespie’s Underhill Ave apartment building as she returned from the grocery store on Saturday afternoon. In the surveillance video it shows Isaac calmly spraying Gillespie head-to-toe in gasoline as the old lady tried to shield her face. Then he used a long barbecue lighter to set her aflame. He tossed in a firebomb and sprayed more gasoline on her as she died screaming. Isaac turned himself in at the NYPD’s Transit District 32 on Carroll St. in Crown Heights about 12:30 a.m.
This is one of the most horrific stories I’ve ever heard!
