Mystery Surrounds Killing of Orthodox NYC Developer

Saturday, 11 Jan 2014 11:39 AM

Two masked men grabbed a New York City real estate developer at his office doorstep the snowy night of Jan. 2 and thrust him into a waiting van.

The body of Menachem Stark turned up a day later in a smoldering trash bin miles away in suburban Long Island.

Stark is a member of an ultra-Orthodox Jewish sect. He has been described as an honest family man eager to help his neighbors and friends. But he's also been called a slumlord who defaulted on million-dollar loans and kept some of his buildings in disrepair.

Investigators have no solid leads in the mysterious death that shocked his close-knit community in north Brooklyn.

Police Commissioner William Bratton says "it's a complex investigation."
