I mean this was recent and when you consider it. It was recent. Right? And it was here in Bushwick where we are broadcasting from another Around the corner. Murder 40 three Furman Avenue. So she brought these two men through her apartment. Um and 43 Fermin Avenue. Yeah, literally like a mile from here. Oh my goodness. We could walk there. Yeah, we could walk there or have art there. Yeah. It's not far from where we are. Over by the cemetery. Over by the right across from the evergreen cemetery. So she yeah it's right over there, Brooklyn's Big, very big and uh you know it's like 14 miles wide and this is only a mile from here. So it's very close by 20 Blocks on May 11 she brought these two men to her apartment and then at like or in the morning there was a fire as the fire alarm went off or something. Yeah. Fire alarm went off. There was a passer by ran under the four story building and began banging on doors according to a neighbor and in the ensuing chaos everybody seemed to emerge from the building Except Lorena. And then the firefighters arrived and officers from the 83rd precinct and they put the fire out it 437 and Lorena was discovered unconscious and unresponsive and paramedics declared her dead at the scene. And a fire department spokesman said that firefighters using thermal imaging equipment found the body on a bed. Oh boy and she was left on a bed. Yes, she was left on a bed and okay. Um So that the fire was deemed suspicious although they didn't they? Yeah, they did not discover accelerant. The fire was deemed very suspicious, right? And it was discovered in the subsequent investigation that Llerena extravaganza died by strangulation and suffocation suffered before the fire started. So they were able to determine the cause of death. Yes, they are, fire was not sleeping through smoke, right? She definitely was strangled. Um And yes. And then there were witnesses that said that they had seen two men arguing in front of the building during the fire during the fire, yes, during the fire, okay. And they had brought two men to her apartment and then fire started. And then there were two men for arguing in front of the apartment building. I see, I'm just trying to build a chronology here. Yes. And then of course they put out the fire, they discovered her, they did an autopsy. They found she was strangled. Exactly. And and Did they ever question these men? Did they find video? This is 2012, right? There was video of a man, They identified someone who had gone in and out of the building, Henry Pacheco, who was A person of interest in the 2012 investigation. Yeah, it was a person of interest because they had seen him on security footage going in with her. Exactly. And they saw him going in and leaving the building and he had exchanged text messages. And uh so they saw him going in the building and leaving the building before and after the murder. And there was a source that said that he was only a person of interest and authorities never sought to charge him. Right, Even though they exchanged phone numbers, so it's pretty obvious who he could have been visiting in that building. They also investigated one of Lorena's former boyfriends firefighter. Taylor Murphy. He was interested, Yeah, right. He was investigated for her death by detectives, but a period of suspicion. Right, well, he might have had a alibi. There's other Henry guy, Pacheco. He they had exchanged calls, text messages and he'd been seen leaving and entering the building before and after her murder and fire. All right. And so they never charged this man for whatever reason, right? They never charged. We don't know if and you know, new york police have a history of ignoring transgender murder victims are if they really needed physical evidence, which may or may not have been destroyed in the fire. Um, you know, clearly torched the place and they ran away. I mean, she was definitely didn't like herself on fire. She did not like her, she didn't strangle herself. No, she didn't. Um but uh, this Henry man for the benefit of the doubt, let's just say he was let go by the police, but he was in the news more recently, wasn't he? Yes, he was. Why is that? Well, he strangled someone. Mm. Is An ex con who has 26 prior arrest. What? Yes. He did. Time for attempted burglary, burglary. So he was suspected of strangling his girlfriend with a scarf inside an east village apartment. And he was also linked to the brutal stomping of a pregnant ex girlfriend. Oh jeez. So here's a here's a history of assaulting girlfriend. He does any. And he was considered a person of interest in the 2012 killing and strangled. So he strangled one and killed a girl that way. Yes. And it was he found guilty and charged of that girl's murder. This recent one. Yes. He was found guilty and he will serve at least 20 years behind bars as part of a plea deal.
