Murder Weapon Missing in Bizarre UWS Case


That seemingly Tarantino-penned horrific killing spree on the Upper West Side that has perplexed New Yorkers this week has taken another strange turn: NYPD spokesmen now say that ballistics tests show that the semi-automatic pistol recovered at the scene was not the weapon the gunman Hector Quinones used to kill two of the victims (the third victim’s throat was slashed), and that they think Quinones stashed it or someone else came to pick it up. But Quinones would have had to have stashed it before falling to his death with his pants down while trying to escape the murder scene, so it’s a strange turn indeed for this sad, bizarre story.
