Written by

Update, 6/25 12:00 pm: Nunez has admitted to police that he is the guy on the surveillance video, according to the Daily News.

Nunez

The NYPD arrested Roberto Nunez at 8 this morning on suspicion of June 7th’s triple homicide. Nunez, 30, is a convicted felon. He can be seen walking away from the blood-spattered BMW in surveillance footage from that night.

He was picked up after a friend-of-a-friend with whom he was staying sold his .38 to an undercover officer. Ballistics matched the weapon to the casings found at the crime scene.

  1. Okay, you guys.

    Let's conduct ourselves like educated, sensible adults this time.

  2. LOL  

    "He was picked up after a friend-of-a-friend with whom he was staying sold his .38 to an undercover officer."

    I call BULLSHIT. My intuition: The "friend-of-a-friend" simply tipped off the NYPD detectives unit that he was harboring a criminal after he suspected the man who stayed with him was the killer. But, fearing revenge from either him or his other associates or his family after finding out that he turned him in, he and the NYPD simply played the part and made it look like he accidentally sold the gun to an undercover officer to keep him safe.

    we're not fooled lol.

      For anyone who's curious, the original Operation Ivy League tip wasn't from a complaint down in the Village, it was from a friend of Harrison David (a Columbia student, I might add). He got caught for weed and was facing prison time and presumably got off in exchange for introducing the undercover cops.

      (He and Harrison were caught with a huge amount as minors, and his records would be unsealed if he got caught again so it would count as a prior for this but not for Columbia admission. It probably didn't come out in Harrison's trial for witness projection and all).

      Anyway, people were plenty fooled then, so it makes sense for the police to say these things.

  3. well sh!t
