Post: NYPD has suspects in 1996 murder of Second Avenue Deli owner


Per the Post today:

Cops have finally zeroed in on several possible suspects in the fatal shooting of beloved Second Avenue Deli owner Abe Lebewohl in 1996. Authorities said that development — along with a whopping $130,000 reward — could soon solve the baffling slay case.


On March 4, 1996, Lebewohl was about to make his Monday morning deposit at the NatWest Bank at Second Avenue and Fourth Street when he was shot and killed by unknown assailants.

... several possible suspects...

Hmmm. So, it's a gang or, um, I dunno, a group? The NYPD doesn't seem too worried about the suspects fleeing.

That Post article mentions that the weapon in the murder was linked to two previous murders in Westchester and a shooting in the Bronx so, presumably, they might solve several murders at once. The link to the other crimes seems to have surfaced immediately after Lebewohl was murdered, in 1996. Perhaps the NYPD is close to solving one of the other murders?
