What If It Really Was His Name?

From The NY Post:
A Bronx man took his killer’s identity to the grave, using his last breath to curse out cops instead of giving up the name of his attacker.

Daniel Pena was attacked in the courtyard of a building on Decatur Avenue near Bedford Park Boulevard and stabbed at least twice in the chest around 7 p.m. Wednesday, cops said.

As rescuers tried to treat the 23-year-old, officers tried to get him to identify his attacker as he gasped for breath.

“As he took his dying breath, his last words to police were, ‘F–k you,’” a law enforcement source said.

Wow. Maybe it was a cop?

Good riddance. Hopefully they will still catch the murderer. One for two isn't bad, two for two, or more, is super. Doubt if thug-dead-boy was worth a burial. Maybe at see, feeds the fish.

Doom - unless there's a witness it's gonna be tough closing this one.

I must have missed something - did the report say the dead one was a thug? Or is this surmised because of his last utterance?

Caddie- I think it was his thuggish response as his lie ebbed away that led us to a perhaps misinformed conclusion. But as decades of experience has shown, the thug life very often leads to endings such as this.
