In New York City, police unveiled a photo of the suspect that was nicknamed “baby face” killer in connection with the murder of a 16-year-old girl.
Zyaire Crumbley is wanted in connection with the homicide of a 16-year-old female found dead inside an apartment in Harlem Sunday at approximately 5:40 p.m.
Her death was announced at Harlem Hospital after she was found wounded inside a 2300 block of Adam Clayton Powell Jr Blvd. apartment in Manhattan.
The deceased victim was identified as 16-year-old Saniyah Lawrence by CBS News.
According to reports, Crumbley and Lawrence got into an argument before police arrived.
“That broke my heart,” said Lesha Sekou, owner of Street Corner Resources, reacting to the slaying in her neighborhood. “I’m a mother and grandmother. We parent the kids that come to us. It hurts when a young person loses their life in that way.”
At a time when more officers than ever are retiring or otherwise leaving the force, NY City has seen an increase in stabbings and other violent assaults in the second half of 2022.
