Family of Footballer Killed in Shooting Wants Case Re-Opened
Posted in: Media
The mother of a young Long Island man who was fatally shot in November 2016 after he stopped by a friend’s house wants the case re-opened by the Nassau County District Attorney.
“They didn’t do anything. They didn’t do their job,” said private investigator Eddie Dowd, a retired NYPD homicide detective.
Dowd and his partner, Israeli profiler Yael Rom, said they asked four independent forensic experts to review the file, including the Medical Examiner’s report. The ME ruled the death a suicide before any ballistics or gun residue tests were completed.
“The forensic evidence shows that this could not have happened where he killed himself,” said Dowd. “So the next question, if he didn’t shoot himself, how did he end up with a bullet wound to his head?”
