It turns out that the turmoil over the violent death of Imette St. Guillen isn’t quite over. Radar reports that her killer, Darryl Littlejohn, was actually a police informant who may have kept himself out of jail by helping cops in a drug case. Littlejohn was a career criminal who hashed out the deal with the Nassau County District Attorney’s office after getting indicted on armed robbery charges in 1997. In 1998 his testimony helped convict several drug dealers in federal court. In early 2006, he is accused of grabbing 24-year-old St. Guillen from outside of the Falls, a Soho bar where he worked as a bouncer, and later raping, torturing, and murdering her. While Littlejohn is currently cooling his heels in Rikers awaiting trial, we suspect the tabloids will get all heated up over this new development in the next few days.
