Dispute at Forest Hills club leads to murder
From Eyewitness News:
A mother is questioning the circumstances surrounding her son's death after a fight at a nightclub in Queens.
Beverley Waide clutched a torn blue sweater, dropped her head in her hand and sobbed at the thought that the piece of clothing is what her son wore the night he died.
Her son, 33-year-old Haroon Walfall, went to Bartinis Lounge in Forest Hills Friday night with a cousin and a friend. They told her about a dispute inside that lead to his death.
"He was talking to this girl," Waide said. "Apparently she had her boyfriend there. And maybe he got jealous and he attacked my son. And his friends came at him and they started beating him. They were all stomping at him. Stomping at his face with his boots."
Waide says the bouncer threw her son out. In the car, Walfall complained of the pain, and his cousin took him to Franklin General Hospital, where he died.
