Volunteers from the Pleasantville Fire Department in Westchester County gathered again this year—wearing their turnout coats and helmets—at a vigil to remember one of their own. It’s been 18 years since Thomas Dorr, Senior was found brutally slashed and beaten to death in the snow, during the blizzard of January 1996. His wife, stepson, and the son’s friend remain suspects in the case, according to Westchester County Police Captain, Christopher Calabrese.
Louis Rispoli was a beloved fixture in his New York City neighborhood and a gay rights activist. Now, nearly a year after his murder, his husband Danyal Lawson is encouraged by a renewed push by police to find his killers.
