BRONX NEWS: Ramarley Graham’s family files massive request for NYPD info


The family of Ramarley Graham is demanding a slew of information about the death of the Bronx 18-year-old they say has been concealed since he was shot by police more than four and a half years ago.


In a sweeping Freedom of Information Law request filed with the NYPD Thursday, the teen’s parents asked for the identities of at least 12 cops who were on the scene at Graham’s home the day he was shot, and any actions that were taken against them.


Mom Constance Malcolm said she’s been constantly stonewalled by Mayor de Blasio as she seeks justice for her son, who was unarmed.


“It seems like it’s a political game with de Blasio,” she said, vowing to campaign against him when he runs for re-election next year. “You’re going to be a one term mayor if that’s the last thing I do.”

Video shows Ramarley Graham carried away after police shooting


“It’s been four and a half years, and still no answers. How would y’all feel if this was your child?” she said, referencing the mayor’s college-age biracial son. “How de Blasio would feel, or Chirlane McCray would feel if this was Dante? How would they feel? They would want the same answers.”


Richard Haste, the officer who shot Graham, is set to face an NYPD departmental trial. City Council members said they were told the trial would begin in November, with a decision reached by January.


The family says they’ve only learned the identities of four of the officers involved in the Feb. 2, 2012, pursuit and killing of Graham, including Haste.


In the FOIL request, they also demand records of any tips or complaints that sparked drug surveillance at a bodega where cops first spotted Graham, roll calls of all officers on duty at the 47th precinct that day, recordings of any communications between cops about the teen, activity logs, firearm discharge reports, and a ream of other records.

The NYPD did not respond to questions about whether they would release the documents.


Lawyer Gideon Oliver, who filed the request, said he will sue if they don’t, dismissing NYPD claims that they can’t release disciplinary records for legal reasons.


“To the extent that further roadblocks are thrown up to releasing this information, it’s clear that can’t means won’t,” he said.


New video of the aftermath of the shooting, reported by the Daily News, shows Graham being carried out of his home by paramedics. One paramedic appears to cover his face with a sheet, before pulling back part of the sheet.

Ramarley Gram’s mother marches to NYPD HQ to demand justice


Malcolm believes this indicates her son died at the scene, rather than at a hospital as officials said at the time.


“At this point, it’s getting pretty ridiculous,” Councilman Antonio Reynoso (D-Brooklyn) said of the city’s handling of the case. “I don’t think they’re asking for much. It’s embarrassing to know that the mother of a young man who lost his life can’t get basic answers from the administration.”

BRONX NEWS: Second suspect in Bronx drug den explosion may get murder charge


One of the suspects arrested in the Bronx drug house explosion that killed an FDNY officer was held without bail Thursday on two counts of drug possession — and may still get hit with a murder charge, prosecutors said.


Garibaldi Castillo, 32, was charged with two counts of criminal possession of marijuana and ordered held without bail at his arraignment in Bronx Criminal Court.


Given that he may also soon face a murder charge in the death of FDNY Deputy Chief Michael Fahy — killed by falling debris after the drug house exploded Tuesday — Castillo should be considered a flight risk, said Christine Scaccia, a prosecutor in the Bronx District Attorney’s office.


Fahy, who took exam for deputy chief on 2013 and was on the list to be appointed, was posthumously promoted Thursday from his rank of battalion chief, Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said.

Police bust second suspect in Bronx drug house explosion


“Chief Fahy achieved the rank of Chief Officer faster than any active member of the Department,” Nigro said.


Castillo was believed to have been in the home on the day of the blast. Immediately afterward, he got rid of a cell phone number linked to the drug den — which was packed full of flammable materials — at 300 W. 234th St, Scaccia said.


“Mr. Castillo has every intention of distancing himself from that location, these facts, and the possibility that there are murder charges,” she told the judge.


His lawyer offered a rambling defense of Castillo, insisting that prosecutors were wrong to call it a drug den because cops only found marijuana plants inside.

FDNY mourns Michael Fahy, battalion chief killed in Bronx blast


“The plants have to be mature in order to be marijuana … These are what, baby plants? You can’t smoke that,” said attorney Francisco Serrano.


He also said the Bronx DA’s evidence linking Castillo to the house was thin.


“They haven’t said that he owns that place, that he rented that space, that he put water into these plants, that the plants are mature .. .” said the lawyer.


“It’s a house created by nature,” Serrano added.

Bronx school will reopen after gas explosion: mayor


The house at the intersection of W. 234th St. and Tibbett Ave. had been under investigation surveillance for at least a month before Tuesday’s blast by the NYPD and the Drug Enforcement Agency, law enforcement officials said.


When he was arrested, Castillo had a key in his pocket that opened the house’s front door, prosecutors said.


Investigators are also grilling Julio Salcedo, 34, another suspect who is believed to be a renter at the pot-filled home.


Salcedo was picked up in New Jersey and is being held in Bergen County jail without bail pending extradition to New York.

Cops found marijuana seedlings in the basement, large pot plants growing in pails on the ground floor — and numerous artificial heat sources as well as blue vats of liquid fertilizer, which is highly combustible, Scaccia said.


Marijuana plants “the size of small trees” filled the three bedrooms on the upper floor, she said.


Windows were sealed and insulation had been stuffed in every crack and crevice to better contain heat, according to Scaccia.


Gas tanks full of helium were also scattered around the house. It’s used to rid mature marijuana plants of pesticides.


On the day Deputy Chief Fahy was killed, firefighters first responded to the house around 6:30 a.m., after getting a 911 call for a gas leak.


It was Salcedo — not Castillo — who answered the door, Scaccia said.


When firefighters got a whiff of the strong gas smell permeating the house — and spotted the marijuana plants — they called the NYPD and Con Edison.


Salcedo tried to flee, first in his car and then on foot, she said.


Deputy Chief Fahy, 44, a married father of three who had 17 years on the job, had just exited the building with some police officers 40 minutes later when a massive explosion blew the roof sky high.


“The explosion had so much force that it blew the roof completely over the power lines and over the tops of trees to land in the middle of the street,” Scaccia said.


Fahy was struck and killed by debris that landed on his head, fire officials said.


Prosecutors are eyeing murder charges because they suspect the gas leak behind the deadly blast was caused by tinkering from the pot growers, Scaccia said.


“All of the early indications seem to indicate that the reason that the gas leak caused the explosion to the extent that it did was because of the manipulation and construction of this grow house, which included heat sources, fuel sources, flammable liquids, and insulation,” she told the courtroom. 


Later Thursday, hundreds of mourners, many in FDNY dress uniforms, gathered at a Yonkers funeral home for Chief Fahy’s wake.


His widow Fiona Fahy greeted friends and family with tears in her eyes.


Inside, flowers marked the various fire companies where Fahy had worked in his 17 years in the FDNY.


Firefighters streamed out after the viewing, some of them wiping tears from their faces.


Mayor de Blasio met quietly with the family inside around 1 p.m.


Commissioner Nigro and Police Commissioner James O’Neill both paid their respects as well.


Retired FDNY Capt. Stephen Damato said he had trained Fahy as a probationary firefighter at Ladder 14.


“The most important (thing) that we can instill in them is the heart of a firefighter, so you think like a firefighter and you have that experience and that something that oozes out of you. Mike Fahy had that…He was sharp, he knew what was happening, if you gave him an order, he listened and he always made that coming to work a joy,” Damato said.


Deirdra O’Connor worked with Fahy when they were both in college at the Platzl Brau House, a picnic ground and convention center near Stony Point, where they both grew up.


“He was truly a great person, an authentic guy, just one of those genuine people,” she said. “It’s no surprise that this is the field he chose, no surprise.”


John Fray, 71, had worked in 13th battalion with Tom Fahy, who was a battalion chief just like his son.


“He was very proud his son had achieved the same rank as him,” said Fray.


“They’re broken up, any parent with a son or a daughter in the fire department or police department lives with that thought in the back of their mind,” he said.
