Home Uncategorized Execution Style Murder Victim in Midtown Manhattan Had a Long Rap Sheet...

A 31 year old man was killed, execution style on West 58th St. yesterday at Seventh Avenue. In the middle of the afternoon. The three New York newspapers, reporting on their websites, seem absolutely clueless about what went on. None of them know as much as the Daily Mail, a British newspaper, or New York 1, a local cable TV outlet. As of 2 am, the New York Times website still isn’t even featuring the story on its homepage. You have to click on the ‘New York’ link to find it in the directory.

According to a little research I did tonight, Brandon Lincoln Woodard had a long police record in the Los Angeles area including some kind of assault and battery charge in June 2012, as well as possession of a controlled substance, and a litany of other criminal cases in which he was a defendant. His rap sheet also includes an apparent guilty conviction for grand theft in 2008, and the dismissal of a burglary charge. He has several vehicle issues also, including parking in a handicapped spot. (Maybe while he committing grand theft.) He was acquitted in 2008 of resisting arrest, possibly in a case dealing with a car. It also looks like he was charged with urinating in public.

The Post and Daily News — neither of them reports what can easily be found on Google– that in 2009, the victim, Brandon Lincoln Woodard, was arrested for shoplifting bottles of wine in Hermosa Beach, California. http://www.topix.com/forum/city/redondo-beach-ca/TFLKKEV32TD6P5DS4. The Times write up is like something from the gardening section, with no urgency. There is one tidbit that the Post and News don’t have–Woodard’s father, whom they interviewed as if the guy knew him, actually hadn’t seen or spoken to his son in years.

If you don’t live in New York, you may think this sort of thing happens every day. It does not. But an execution style murder took place like something out of gangster movie in broad daylight in extremely quiet part of Manhattan, and the reporting on it is shameful to say the least.

I do love how the local reports have Woodard “visiting from Los Angeles” like he was here to see Broadway shows and maybe have high tea at the Plaza. People here for that purpose are not shot by assailants laying in wait (according to ABCNews.com) once in the back of the head from behind with no robbery involved. Brandon Woodard was into something bad.

  1. @ Me 2 – Apparently this apple didn’t fall to far from the tree. His mother is a real piece of work as well. Perhaps do some reading on her. Facts are facts. Both of them were on the wrong side of the law. One does not simply get shot, execution-style, because it was random. His past caught up to him, OR his mothers past caught up to him.

  2. Another thing…our family likes to travel…not to mention it is Christmas and there could b a chance that he was out there to shop…..for my 12th grade graduation my father took me to NY for a week just to go shopping…..so don’t pass judgment or slander his name..u don’t know what happened so wait untill u get the facts..before u try to cover a story..let NYPD do they’re job!..

What do you think?
