Who murdered Sunny Sheu?

From Naked Capitalism:

The details are thin but they sure don’t smell right. The short form is that Sunny Sheu had his house stolen from him by fictive buyers who used forged documents. Judge Golia of Queens engaged in what appears to be highly questionable behavior in failing to reverse the sale. Sheu started investigating the judge, was told by policeman who specifically referred to information he had provided about Golia, and that if he didn’t drop it, he’d wind up dead. Sheu disregarded their warning and did wind up dead. The authorities are also refusing to honor requests for information regarding Sheu’s death made under New York’s Freedom of Information Act. This story has been publicized by Foreclosure Fraud and The Daily Bail and I hope it gets more traction.

Here is the background as reported by the Black Star News.

And more from the original article:


Ernesto Macasaet, supervisor of admissions at New York Queens Hospital reports that a policeman “identified” the body of Sunny Sheu only twelve hours after he died, and before any family or friends could identify the body.

There is no precedent for this, unless there is a criminal investigation underway, which there is not. According to hospital staff, the legal department was in a frenzy. They called up the precinct to find out if the police officer was authentic.

Who was this police officer?

Why did he identify Sunny’s body before next of kin were notified?

Why did he request that the body be taken to the Medical examiner?

How did he know what Sunny Sheu looked like?

Why did he not give his name to the Medical Examiner as required by law?

Why did the police give an unsubstantiated and uninvestigated report to the Medical examiner, regarding a witness who has never been identified?

The Queens District Attorney is allegedly investigating Sheu’s death, but given that this involves looking into allegations against a Queens judge and a Queens police office, I don’t have much hope for this inquiry going anywhere absent more media pressure.

Doesn't Judge Golia live very close to the notorious Tommy Huang....
just outside the border of Douglas Manor?

Doesn't he have a brother, James Golia, who we believe was once the borough engineer or something?

H-m-m-m....what a cozy nest.

Isn't the house that was stolen from Sheu located on 158th Street near 45th Ave. in Flushing?

Why was Judge Golia so reluctant to see that relatively modest home south of Northern B'lvd. justly returned to Sheu?

Could a favor have been possibly owed to a developer friend of Golia who wanted to build upon that site?

In this crooked never know!

This borough is certainly the most out of control borough in NYC!

Carefully played machine politics; out of control over development; various mob connections (with old time and newly arrived "godfathers"); what a recipe for wholesale corruption and law breaking exists.

Queens is the wild west of collusion and corruption!

Wyatt Earp and his brothers would agree that Tombstone or Dodge City was a breeze to the comparable task of cleaning up Queens.

Anon #1 is right - this city IS out of control. The way the city pooh-bahs ignored public opinion and hijacked the name of the Queensboro bridge to give to Ed Koch and now THIS are good indicators that the rich have decided to drop any pretense that this is a democracy and in this case are exercising what they perceive to be their god-given right to summarily execute people.

I mean, in the NYC of 2011, 'might makes right' - right?

You are tragically correct in fearing that this story likely won't get traction, being that the mainstream press basically serve as PR flacks for their billionaire masters.

They would hang the police officer in a heartbeat. As a matter of fact, he/she will probably end up being the fall guy if the pressure keeps up. Cops are peon blue collar civil servants, looked down upon by the haughty politicos. It is the judge and his cronies they are really protecting.

Cav said...

Oh so now I'm part of the conspiracy? Well, where's my black helicopter? I could use the transportation to the next secret star chamber meeting so I can finally collect all the back pay they owe me. God knows, I could use the money!

No,trolls, my opinion on the matter is based on something called critical thinking. Blithe acceptance of a conspiracy theory is the hallmark of a lazy mind.

I know this will fly over a few heads here but try to bear with me.
Let's see some real information: The petitions from the plaintiff and the response of the defendant. Lets see the court transcripts and the judge's ruling in the case.

The judge's ruling must cite case law and prior court precendents. If it's flawed, this is the basis of an appeal to the next higher appellate court. Take this documentation to an attorney who specializes in estates law and get a real legal opinion, not what "some guy" (me included) on a website thinks.

Second, and the thing that made me suspicious of the article in the first place: The forest of "unanswered questions". A time honored technique used by cranks for decades. It serves two purposes- first to put so many different questions out at once to overload the reader and create the impression of "something" happening. Second is to create a smokescreen to draw the reader away from the facts.
Read Martin Gardner 'Fads and Fallacies in the Name of Science',
Larry Kusche 'Bermuda Triangle Mystery- Solved' and Ron Story 'Space Gods Revealed' to understand the methodology. Yes, the subjects are different but the template of analysis can be applied to any subject.

If these qestions are taken one by one, usually a reasonable answer will be found. For instance a death certificate as are other vital statistics, is not accessable under FOIL. Look it up.

- The Medical Examiner is notified of all deaths in NYC. If the person is under 65 and/or the immediate cause of death is not known or appears suspicious, the M.E. takes the body to the morgue and performs an autopsy.

-There are x-rays and photos of the body taken before the autopsy. The autopsy itself is recorded.

-If a body is taken to the morgue, the first police officer on the scene goes to the morgue the next day to identify the body as being the same one the officer saw at the scene. Standard procedure done every time.

-All information on any police investigation is given out by the Deupty Commissioner of Public Information. The person who wrote that article didn't even bother inquiring at the DCPI. Why let the facts get in the way of a good story?

For this little conspiracy to work, the Forces of Evil would literally need an army of people spanning the NYPD, the Queens DA, the Office of the Medical Eximaner, and the whole damned Department of Justice working for them to pull it off. All to kill one obscure man to steal an average house then to go through all the time, trouble and risk to conceal the crime. Doesn't quite add up.

This is only my opinion of the subject. These are the reasons I am skeptical of this article.
For those of you with some kind of evidence, unimpeachable sources, etc. then let's see it. I can be convinced and willing to admit my error, along with a nice apology, if presented with facts.

Cav said...

One more thing.
I just want to clarify that I have no opinion on whether Mr. Shu's court case had merit or not. There isn't enough objective information for me to say one way or the other.
I only took issue with the whole conspiracy aspect of the article, it's attendant flaws and obvious bias.

Anonymous said...


When everybody is terrified of postulating that 'conspiracies' exist - this becomes the IDEAL environment for conspiracies to indeed - flourish. We see these things happening right under our noses yet are too intimidated to say anything lest somebody ridicule us as being 'paranoid'.

Was it a 'conspiracy' that against the wishes of the majority of people in Queens the Queensboro bridge was renamed for Ed Koch because a certain circle of very wealthy people wanted to see it happen?

If you wish to come up with ACTUAL conclusive proof to refute charges in the articles about Sunny Sheu (as opposed to generalizations) please feel free to do so.

Cav, I share your skepticism. Not because something like this couldn't possibly happen, but because the details provided are sketchy and incomplete. Thanks for your well written post and for using your critical thinking skills.

I guess you missed the part that said "The authorities are also refusing to honor requests for information regarding Sheu’s death made under New York’s Freedom of Information Act."

No, I didn't miss that part. That still doesn't make the story sound like an impartial investigation. There's nothing wrong with having questions or being skeptical.

Cav brings up a good question. What about the appeals process?

I hope you continue to follow this case crappy.

Too funny, Crappy using a radical left wing newspaper as his big source. Black Star News is the type of paper Crapper and his ilk would usually dismiss as some communist rag. Guess if it suits the agenda, anything is the truth.

Queens Crapper said...

That's pretty funny because I don't think I have ever used the word Communist once on this website. The information was sent to me by several readers, none of whom I would consider to be radical left wing. Congrats on starting your own conspiracy theory, moonbat!

You said it. This city is out of control; this borough is out of control. Worse than Donald Mannes. Yes, back when Koch was mayor--I hate to see him on NY1--the outer boroughs were thrown to the dogs. Something will crack this whole thing open one day. Rotten to the core.

I came across this article from another online source and when I first read it, I was stunned. A while back, my family and I had faced foreclosure problems, but by God's Grace, we did not lose our apartment. You don't truly feel the effects of these things (i.e. foreclosures) until they happen to you or in this case, in areas close to you.

CAV, thank you for putting the brakes on this argument. Your questions and concerns are well founded. However, we should not let this case get swept under the rug. I am not out to blame Judge Golia or anyone else for that matter, but I would rather see a proper investigation conducted by the authorities. They will have much more access to information than we do.

I do believe that there is a conspiracy going on with the big banks taking homes through foreclosure. There needs to be an investigation done by the authorities, but if this story dies, then nothing will be done. CAV, if this story is fake and you are proven correct, then I would be glad to know that no one was actually killed. However, if the story is true, then what happened to Sunny Sheu can also happen to anyone else. The proper authorities need to handle this, but some of them have been known to do nothing, especially with cases such as this.

Thank you very much Crappy for posting this article up.

A shorter comment from the poster on the other blog:

No, the story has many things wrong, Golia in fact reversed the fraudulent sale and gave title back to Sheu.

The mortgage company Centex lost *its* mortgage, but since they had paid off Sheu’s (and Sheu’s brother’s) mortgage they were given that prior mortgage’s lien instead- Sheu and his brother had taken out the prior mortgage- never made any payments and it was in default and being foreclosed at the time of the allegedly fraudulent sale.

So the *victim* of the “fraudulent” sale was not Sheu, it was Centex. As the bankruptcy court found in 2009, Sheu had lived continuously in the house for 10+ years without ever paying any mortgage, taxes or insurance.

Anonymous said...

"For 10 grueling years, Sheu said, he was consistently denied the opportunity to present evidentiary documentation proving that the fraud had taken place and that Centex had no right to foreclose on his home."

I wouldn't pay the mortgage for 10 years either if they were telling me that the house was not mine.

Anony2 said...

Meanwhile, Golia did give Sheu the house back the first time. It's just that Sheu and his brother kept taking new mortgages and not paying. Usually under coporate names.

On BIS they have vioaltions for running businesses from the house.

On ACRIS you can see all of the deed transfers. These guys are scam artists. The loser in the end? Centax.

Also, Sheu already ratted out Golia and Golia revised his financial disclosure. What did Sheu think he was going to the media with?

I guess we'll never know since he conveniently died after he said this.

I am the author of Black Star News Article, and the friend who filmed the video of Sunny foretelling his murder.

Today, June 29th, I was assaulted and threatened by an undercover cop who was surveilling my home. Fortunately, I photographed his license plates and his police parking plates.

Obviously, I am concerned. I am grateful for your support.



To the anonymous coward who suggested that "Centex" was the victim, you neglect to mention that Sheu sent many checks to Centex, but they were rejected because Centex held that the incarcerated forgers were the real mortgage holders and the Sunny was not.

How interesting that someone with ties to the murderers/ thieves has infiltrated this blog.

Webmaster, can you find out who this person is?

And yeah, we have an axe to grind against a judge who killed a citizen for his house.

Are you a judge or a cop from the 109th??


Anony2 said:

Do you pull this stuff directly out of your ass, or do you drop it in toilet first?

Look at Sunny's complaint:

What was Golia's "revised" financial disclosure?

The actual "revised" document (which was submitted four months late) which is publicly available from the OCA, doesn;t address a singe discrepancy. . After complaining that the OCA did not identify the complainant (which would have been illegal), Golia states that the only holding he failed to declare is a "vacant lot" in Queens worth "less than a thousand dollars". Yeah right.

Speaking of disclosure, please disclose who you are, and where you get your facts. (though that is pretty clear from the smell).


Finally, Cav:

What is a conspiracy? We both know it's an illegal act planned and/or carried out by more than one person.

The very fact that two DA cops illegally detained Sunny, and SOMEONE ordered his detention comprises a conspiracy, whatever occurred in that locked room for two hours.

People use the term "conspiracy" as a way of implying gullibility or stupidity, but that use of the word is disingenuous, manipulative, and contrary to the word's established meaning.

Flushing brothels

"Dennis Quinn and Jerry Svoronos, two New York City Police Officers working out of the 109th Precinct, Gina Kim and Geeho Chae, brothel operators, were arrested on March 8, 2006, for bribery charges relating to the protection of a brothel located in Flushing, Queens. Agents seized approximately $800,000 in cash, believed to be the proceeds of the brothel, from Kim and Chae's vehicle and residence. On March 8, 2006 search warrants were executed at the brothel and a boarding house used by the brothel workers, and agents seized immigration documents, business records, and a small quantity of ecstasy. The two officers were in a unit which targets quality-of-life-type crimes.[9] Members of the precincts engaged in a practice known as "flaking", in which cops planted marijuana, cocaine, or Ecstasy on suspects. Members of the conditions unit maintained a small stash of drug in an Altoids tin for this purpose, Assistant U.S. Attorney Monica Ryan said.[10] In addition, 16 Korean and Chinese brothel workers were taken into immigration custody."

Trust that there is extensive documentation in the Sunny Sheu matter including State and federal court documents, documents to oversight committees, investigators and more.

Anyone who believes Centex was the "Victim" is MISSING the ENTIRE thrust of Sunny's Complaint as Sunny Attempted to get Evidence before Golia showing CENTEX KNEW the original Deal was Fake and Fraudulent.

This Fake action by Centex directly caused the Amount of money allegedly owed on the property to Increase the Encumbrance on the property by over $100,000.00 instantly. it took Golia several years after many complaints to reverse the first fraudulently based foreclosure tying the property up and harming Sunny for years. This is exactly part of what he was working on at the time of his death.

Yet, Sunny had proof he had attempted to bring to Golia on Centex in the beginning and had gone to the NYPD within Days of discovering this and had an open case with the NY County DA as well.

There are boxes of documents to backup the articles for Sunny. Best one to read is the FIRST Blackstar News article called Junk Justice, first of 3 part series. More documents coming soon. These will show serious improprieties that were also brought to higher levels of State Court system as well.

Therein lies the problem and the seriousness of the coverup.

More to come.

I am the guy called "Justice for Sunny". My name is Will Galison- I am a professional musician. Google me.

Sunny was my friend and I know what happened to him. I wrote the BSN article and am working with an award winning reporter on a feature for a major national publication.

I also have never had a violation or arrest of any kind, which you can check now that you know my name.

Now what is your name?

You won't tell your name because you are afraid of me?

And you are afraid of me because I called you name?

And the name I called you is that I said you pulled information out of your ass?

And then you write:

"I will tell you who I am though. I am someone with NO involvement in this case. I am a Flushing native, a Flushing homeowner, an American, and a frequent blogger on QC"

That's not telling who you are.

Do you think that statement fools ANYONE on this blog?

Please tell me your name, so I can check your police record. Or are you still too scared of me?

You have Golia, the NYPD, the mob, the FBI and the entire culture of corruption on your side. I only have the truth on my side. And you're scared of me?

And no, I have never been on this blog before- never heard of it before. I couldn't resist replying when I saw the inane, false information being written about the Centex lawsuit and Sunny.

When the feature comes out in a world renowned investigative paper you will understand what really happened.

Just found out that Sunny Sheu didn't even own the house because it was in his brother's name. A local cop told me that Sunny wasn't kidnapped- Sunny was investigated because he went to the Judge's home to deliver a message to him.

will galison said...

Dear Anony2,

We all missed the part where you told us your name. Could you post that one again?

Now to your silly post.

"Just found out that Sunny Sheu didn't even own the house because it was in his brother's name."

You have no evidence to back that statement because it is not true.

"A local cop told me that Sunny wasn't kidnapped- Sunny was investigated because he went to the Judge's home to deliver a message to him."

So your cop friend is admitting that Goiia ordered Sunny's detention because Sunny left a letter in his mailbox.

Sunny was illegally detained without a warrant or due process. This has been verified on tape by the Queens DA and Judge Golia's law clerk.

FYI, that is kidnapping in the second degree under NY law:

S 135.20 Kidnapping in the second degree.
"A person is guilty of kidnapping in the second degree when he abducts another person."

Class B Felony

2. "Abduct" means to restrain a person with intent to prevent his liberation by secreting or holding him in a place where he is not likely to be found

In order for Golia to have Sunny LEGALLY detained, he would have had to a) file a temporary restraining order against Sunny b) taken the TRO to a second judge who would endorse the TRO c) wait for Sunny to violate the TRO and d) make a criminal complaint against Sunny.

Golia did NONE of those things. On a whim, he ordered two cops to detain Sunny with no due process.

That is against the law, you anonymous ninny.

If nothing else, Golia and his two thugs should be arrested for S 135.20 Kidnapping in the second degree.

A class B felony would put the away for quite a while.

But thank you for clarifying that Golia was the one who ordered the illegal detention. If you gave your name, you could be subpoenaed to give the name of the "local cop" who told you that.

But you won;t give your name, probably because you are complicit in the murder of Sunny Sheu and the ongoing cover-up.
