Bronx Man Arrested In Connection With Queens Stabbing

By: NY1 News

A Bronx man was charged today with second-degree murder in connection with the fatal stabbing of a Queens man.

Alexys Fermaintt, 30, was arrested in connection with the death of Mike Pecora, 38, who was found stabbed to death Wednesday in his Forest Hills apartment.

Police say a cab driver picked up someone in Queens who paid the fare with a watch and what is believed to be Pecora's cell phone, then walked away with a laptop.

The description the driver gave officials matches Fermaintt.

Police do not yet know how Fermaintt and Pecora met.

Update from Newsday:

Fermaintt, of 1707 Boston Rd. in the East Tremont neighborhood, was arrested Thursday afternoon at his mother's home in Holyoke, Mass., according to Holyoke police and brought to Queens on Friday by city detectives.

Fermaintt was arrested without incident by members of the Holyoke Police Department's Criminal Investigation Bureau and the department's Narcotics Vice Bureau, according to police there.

Pecora's computer was found in a separate Holyoke apartment that police said appeared to be Fermaintt's primary address, according to a detective.

Fermaintt was arraigned Friday in Holyoke as a fugitive of justice and was handed over to NYPD detectives.

Street crime or a gay meeting on craigslist?

Crime may be up/down in QUeens but this was probably a gay rendezvous gone wrong.

" it's a bit scarey you never know who's on the other end"

===================================

If you don't know whos on the other side why is the guy inviting him to his apartment?

Some parts of the Bronx are gorgeous. In fact, when I tried to relocate from Queens, it was the first area I looked in.

Please note that Morris Park, Bedford Park, Riverdale, Country Club, Pelham, and Woodlawn are all decent areas that don't cost too much.

In fact, the Hell-hole of my youth, the South Bronx, isn't bad at all nowadays.

I know him and i think he would do that. He smokes crystal and sniffs everything in the book. He has done porn with a lot of guys. I wouldnt doubt it if he is guilty.

Ok,No matter who it is very sad to loose a person you love and care about...But to all those judging Alex I have a few things to say...first you are not GOD to judge anyone...second you were'nt there nor was I to know the facts of what happened and I belive that he deserves the benefit of the doudt...third I dont mean to sound nasty but why in the first place he need to seek for sexual pleasures to someone he met online like there isn't enough D**K or A** in N.Y...Alex is not a friend of mine but he was my friends neighbor and he seemed like a really nice guy that would hurt anyone so I truly belive it was self-defense,but I dunno I was not there...oh and to the other person talking smack about Alex about doing crystal and what not... I need to say that though no matter what type of drugs anyone uses it's just wrong BUT if I'm not the ONE supporting their habit then it becomes NON of my BUSINESS,meaning is NO of yours either...what anyone does with their life and perhaps you know this well cus you were one of the ones that hung out with him and did crystal and maybe participated in a video with him as well,cus you sure know alot about his personal life...lol sorry,but think about it how does he know if he were'nt part of it come on DUDE....To the friends and fam. of Mike Im very sorry for your loss but...maybe he should have looked for his sexual needs locally or pay what he had offered...I mean there are tons of ways to take care of yous without needing another person geezzz Im a chick and nothing like a man BUT if there is NON then I take care of me for crying out loud GOD gave us hands and they not just to carry stuff around or write ...put them to use instead of taking drastic measures and exposing yourselves to a stranger...nods....this is just unbelievable how some here are judging ... Has anyone thought for a sec. that he might of have been defending himself or perhaps what is his MOM and family are going throuh,ughhhh!! I will just hush for now cus I know after posting this I might get attacked...but before you do just think before you do or read over im not judging eaither one they both made a bad choice it seems...but i'm no one to judge...Thank You and God Bless You All and our Families...Sincely a humble Holyoke Resident

Does anyone have spellcheck, or speak english? Bottom line, one man is dead and one isn't someone has to be to blame, seems obvious to me.

For those who claim to be a 'friend' of Alex, what does that say about you... If it was 'self-defense' why didn't he call the police? Why did he take Mike's cell phone, watch and laptop?? Alex will get what is coming to him.
