    Karina Vetrano with her father before she was savagely murdered​


    Young and beautiful with a full life ahead of her, Karina Vetrano was jogging 6 months ago when she was suddenly snatched up and dragged into the woods near her Howard Beach, NY home. She was brutally beaten, raped and murdered. Ms. Vetrano regularly jogged that same trail with her father, but that day on August 2, 2016, her father was unable to join her due to a back injury. When she didn't return home that night, Mr. Vetrano reported her missing, began a search and found his daughter's slain body off of the jogging path.

    The community of Howard Beach was stunned by the news and came together in an effort to find out who had committed this heinous crime in their tight-knit community.

    Howard Beach is a quiet, well kept New York beach community of Irish and Italian families. Famous Mafia Boss, John Gotti, raised his own family in Howard Beach and his grandchildren still live in the neighborhood. It is not a place where one would seek to commit a crime because it is well known that if you harm the family member of a NY mobster in Howard Beach or commit a crime against someone in their neighborhood, you've signed your own death warrant.

    20 year old Chanel Lewis, arrested and charged with the murder of Karina Vetrano​

    I do not expect this young man to survive in prison. I believe it is highly unlikely that he will even make it to the actual trial. I find it difficult to believe that this young man is from NY. It would be more believable to learn that he is an immigrant from another country and is unfamiliar with Howard Beach and how things are done in Howard Beach.

    The story of Karina Vetrano's death was highly publicized throughout New York. Many families were outraged as they considered how they would feel had this been their daughter. The NYPD took the case very seriously and launched a massive manhunt. Many officers appeared at the funeral of the young girl in a show of support for the family and community. Mr. Vertano is a retired NY Fire Fighter and was a first responder on 9/11.

    There was a tremendous outpouring of sympathy for the Vetrano family. The community raised over a quarter of a million dollars through a Go Fund Me account for leads in the investigation. Their efforts have finally paid off.

    Today it was reported that the murderer of Karina Vetrano has been arrested and charged.

    PICTURED: Chanel Lewis accused of killing jogger Karina Vetrano
    "This is a great day for the community and the detectives that worked day in and day out and of course it will hopefully bring some closure to the Vetrano family," Queens District Attorney Richard Brown told reporters gathered inside the 106th Precinct. - end quote

    Queens District Attorney, Richard A. Brown responded in the following news report which was released today by ABC7NY.com:

    "This is truly a very sad case in which a beautiful and talented young woman senselessly lost her life," Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown said in a statement. "I extend my deepest condolences to the Vetrano family, particularly Karina's parents, Phil and Kathy, and thank them for their vigilance throughout this lengthy investigation."

    Lewis made "detailed incriminating statements and admissions" that connected him with the crime, Boyce said. Additional forensic evidence found during a follow-up investigation also implicated Lewis, he said.

    It's not clear whether Lewis had an attorney. His father described him as a "humble kid" who was a good student and wanted to go into social work. -end quote

    And finally, there was the response from victim's family.
    Parents of Karina Vetrano: 'She was just unlucky'

    My condolences, prayers, and sympathy go out to the Vetrano family. May the LORD comfort you and avenge you of this horrific crime against your loved one.

    UPDATE REPORT:
    Man, 20, Charged With Murder in Death of Karina Vetrano

    After listening and viewing the first news report video, at top of news story link, it is apparent that Mr. Lewis, the father of the accused, is not from America. He sounds like a foreign (Muslim) and his accent is very thick. The father can be heard making excuses for his son and insisting on his innocence even though he knows his son has confessed to the crime in vivid detail.

    You'll also see a very upset Mrs. Vetrano being escorted away from the courthouse stating, The Father is a _________.

    The news media has edited out the word but I am wondering if she what she said was, His father is a Muslim. If the news media is trying to cover up this young man being a Muslim, they are now following in the same exact footsteps of European media and we all know that preceded the end of freedom of speech for Europeans. God save us from such a day.

    My husband said he believes he is a Muslim. He was flagged 3 different times around that park and was under suspicion but for some reason the police were not given a clearance to take him off the streets. That would be indicative of something unusual but let us wait for the report and see if the young man was an immigrant or comes from a Muslim family. I never said he was a foreigner. I do not know if he is a foreigner or not, but I would find it more believable (which is what I wrote in the Op-ed) because any local Brooklyn boy knows better than to commit a crime in Howard Beach.

    A man named Marc Lepine forged the gun laws in Canada.

    One problem as we found out years later. The government you know Liberal and the media changed the young mans name to Marc Lepine.

    Anglicized his name. The young man was a Muslim. Gamil Gharbi. Algerian.

    Who is this Chanel Lewis because I know this fucking game.

    I had a Muslim whack 17 chicks and trotted out to this day as a mysoginist not the son of a radical muslim from Algeria AND FUCKING MADE US ALL TURN OUR GUNS IN who couldn't afford to keep them.

    I kept most of mine. And added to them. Best be ready right?

    Get to the bottom of this mans name.

    He's not American. Not at all. West African. Come at me later if I'm wrong. But that man is west African.

    Thank you, Tiny Dancer. I have heard of Muslims with American names before also. I don't know how they get away with that but they do. Even if this young man was born in Brooklyn, NY he could still be a Muslim. There are many Muslims who live in Brooklyn, NY. Anything is possible.

    Interesting that you should say that as my husband had a similar response to yours when he saw his photograph.

    By the way, one of my best buddies in Toronto was a Somali so when I let go on Somalis it's not a blanket kick their ass. Wonderful peoples. Running from the devil in the late 80's from the wars. Aziz was my friend. I turned him onto the Burbs. He let me watch it for free every Sunday.

    Police stand outside a home along Essex Street where the suspect is believed to have lived.
    (TODD MAISEL/NEW YORK DAILY NEWS)

    The Daily News has posted this photograph of police standing outside of what is believed to be where he lived. I notice the photographer made sure to get the house number in the photograph. I'm sure those neighbors are very nervous right now given the publicity this story has been given.

    I've had the world's strangest life I guess. My Uncle Bill was a Canadian version of a UN worker in Nigeria before and during the Biafrin war. I was a young teenager at the time but I learned about Africa hands on during that time period because he was my uncle and when his houseboy actually appeared on the front cover of Life or was it Look armed to the teeth well we all went 'OMG ' that's Uncle Bills houseboy.

    But in that time period I studied Afrikaners. They fascinated me. What an ancient and wonderous spirit.

    I digress. But by appearance, one can tell east from west as you can tell north from south.

    Beautiful peoples.
