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:
POLICE ILLEGALLY REMOVE SUNNY’ SHEU’s BODY FROM HOSPITAL
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.
