The rent's on me, Powerball winner Pedro Quezada tells his Passaic, N.J., neighbors
Mar-31-2013 551 0


Powerball winner Pedro Quezada is hosting a rent party — for his entire block.

A close friend of the newly minted megamillionaire said Quezada promised to temporarily cover the housing costs for residents in the Passaic, N.J., neighborhood that housed his bodega.

“He said he’s going to pay the rent for everybody here on this block for at least a month or two months,” the friend said Saturday outside Quezada’s Apple Deli Grocery. “He’s such a good guy.”

Word of Quezada’s magnanimous gesture left several of his neighbors stunned.

“God bless him, and thank you,” crowed Richard Delgado, 45, after learning of the pledge.

John Koblarz’s eyes lit up when he heard Quezada had offered to cover his neighbors’ rents.

But then the 78-year-old landlord came to his senses.

“Oh, he can't afford to pay mine,” Koblarz said. “Mine is $20,000. I own the building!”

Neighbors were stunned over Quezada's kind gesture. Above, Pedro hoists his $338 million check.

Quezada, whose generosity is now the stuff of legend, was nowhere to be found Saturday, five days after he claimed the $338 million Powerball jackpot. But the Dominican immigrant was still the talk of the neighborhood.

Residents said the hardworking Quezada, 45, is considered a local hero.

“He’s somebody who needs it, not like the people who had millions already and won it,” said Delgado.
Cheech Rivera, 57, said he hardly ever saw Quezada or his wife because they were always too busy working to attend summer block parties.

“They struggled. They are always constantly working,” said Rivera. “They don’t really have time to get together with us.”

Piles of mail were stacked outside Quezada’s home, including a letter from a Morgan Stanley adviser with a handwritten note on the envelope.

“I want to help you,” it read.

Quezada put his bodega up for sale just two days after scoring the fourth-largest Powerball payout in history. The freshly retired Quezada opted for a lump-sum payout that will provide a $152 million payday.

And he’s already taken care of the $29,000 he owed in child support, according to his friend.

Officials in Passaic County said Saturday that a child-support warrant was stayed until 1:30 p.m. on Monday, when Quezada is due to appear in court.

A Maryland boy beaten by his mother’s boyfriend for eating a slice of birthday cake has died, authorities said.

The boyfriend, Robert Wilson, handcuffed 9-year-old Jack Garcia and then pummeled him, Hagerstown police said.

The badly wounded boy clung to life for nearly five days at a Washington, D.C., hospital but died on Sunday, police Capt. Paul Kifer confirmed.

Wilson, 30, was charged with first-degree assault and child abuse, but police were expected to consult with Washington County prosecutors about upgrading charges following Jack’s death.

Wilson became enraged on June 30 when he discovered the little boy had sneaked a slice of cake without his permission, police said.

He pounded the child mercilessly, and then refused to get him medical help for about four hours, authorities said.

Another man at the house called 911 after the vicious attack, but Jack’s mom met the ambulance outside and told them her son was just “congested” and didn’t need any help, police said.

Medical workers returned at 10:37 p.m. after the boy stopped breathing.

Jack was bruised all over his body. He had injuries on his face, neck, back, buttocks, legs and abdomen, authorities said.

He was transported to Children’s National Hospital in critical condition.

The boy died at the hospital on Sunday.

Wilson was jailed on $600,000 bond at Washington County Detention Center.

Washington police on Monday caught a suspect in the July 4 murder of a former congressional intern.

Jasper Spires, 18, was charged with first-degree murder of Kevin Sutherland, 24, who was stabbed to death Saturday at a Metro station stop north of Capitol Hill.

Sutherland, an American University graduate, interned for Jim Himes, a Connecticut Democrat, in 2010 and 2012.

Spires had been arrested Thursday on a robbery charge, then released Friday when the charge was amended to a misdemeanor.

Bill Cosby admitted in 2005 that he got quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with, and that he gave the sedative to at least one woman and "other people," according to documents obtained Monday by The Associated Press.

That woman and a second woman testified in the same case that they knowingly took quaaludes from him, according to the unsealed documents.

The AP had gone to court to compel the release of the documents from the deposition in a sexual abuse lawsuit filed by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand — the first of a cascade of sexual abuse lawsuits against him. Cosby's lawyers had objected on the grounds that it would embarrass their client.

Cosby settled that lawsuit under confidential terms in 2006. His lawyers in the Philadelphia case did not immediately return phone calls Monday. Constand consented to be identified but did not want to comment, her lawyer said Monday.

Cosby, 77, has been accused by more than two dozen women of sexual misconduct, including allegations by many that he drugged and raped them in incidents dating back more than four decades. Cosby has never been criminally charged, and most of the accusations are barred by statutes of limitations.

Cosby, giving sworn testimony in the lawsuit accusing him of sexual assaulting Constand at his home in Pennsylvania in 2005, said he got seven quaalude prescriptions in the 1970s. The lawyer for Constand asked if he had kept the sedatives through the 1990s — after they were banned — but was frustrated by objections from Cosby's lawyer.

"When you got the quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?" lawyer Dolores M. Troiani asked.

"Yes," Cosby answered on Sept. 29, 2005.

"Did you ever give any of these young women the quaaludes without their knowledge?"

Cosby's lawyer again objected, leading Troiani to petition the federal judge to force Cosby to cooperate.

Cosby later said he gave Constand three half-pills of Benadryl, although Troiani in the documents voices doubt that was the drug involved. The two other women who testified on Constand's behalf said they had knowingly been given quaaludes.

Three of the women accusing Cosby of sexually assaulting them have a defamation lawsuit pending against him in Massachusetts. They allege that he defamed them when his agents said their accusations were untrue. Cosby is trying to get their case thrown out before discovery.

Cosby had fought the AP's efforts to unseal the testimony, with his lawyer arguing the deposition could reveal details of Cosby's marriage, sex life and prescription drug use.

"It would be terribly embarrassing for this material to come out," lawyer George M. Gowen III argued in June. He said the public should not have access to what Cosby was forced to say as he answered questions under oath from the accuser's lawyer nearly a decade ago.

"Frankly ... it would embarrass him, (and) it would also prejudice him in eyes of the jury pool in Massachusetts," Gowen said.

U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno asked last month why Cosby was fighting the release of his sworn testimony, given that the accusations in the Temple woman's lawsuit were already in the public eye.

"Why would he be embarrassed by his own version of the facts?" Robreno said.

Cosby resigned in December from the board of trustees at Temple, where he was the popular face of the Philadelphia school in advertisements, fundraising campaigns and commencement speeches.

A bullet intended for Antonio Brown rang out amid the loud blasts of fireworks above and fatally struck his 7-year-old son outside a northwest Chicago home late Saturday.

Amari Brown died in what Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy described as a “senseless murder.”

An unidentified gunman opened fire outside the 1100 block of West Harding Avenue just before midnight as Amari played with more than a dozen children.

The shooting left Amari helpless on the sidewalk where his father, who had been standing nearby, scooped him up and jumped into the back of a car.

He held his dying boy in his lap for the five-mile car ride to a local hospital where Amari died.

“I was in the back seat, I was talking to him the whole time. I was like, ‘You cool, I know you cool,'” Brown recalled to the Tribune.

He continued to wear the white pants soaked with his son’s blood Sunday morning.
The heartbreaking tragedy quickly turned to a blame game as Chicago Police Chief Garry McCarthy flashed his frustration at a press conference and put Brown’s extensive criminal history as a high-ranking gang member on display.

Investigators tallied up 45 arrests, most a variety of gun, burglary and assault charges, for Brown. The latest was in April when he allegedly led police on a vehicle chase. He has since been out on bond for gun charges ever since, authorities said.

“Quite frankly, he should not have been on the street. This is exactly what the men and women of Chicago (police) are up against,” McCarthy said. “I’m angry, I’m frustrated that we’re here again talking about a senseless murder. This has got to stop.”

McCarthy is wary that more police officers on the street could put a stop to the streaks of violence that have plagued Chicago. He lobbied for better gun laws in Illinois citing New York's tough firearm restrictions as an example. McCarthy was NYPD's deputy commissioner of operations until 2006.

In the hours before Amari’s death, he spent his final hours playing at his grandmother’s house as relatives barbecued, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"Who would shoot a 7-year-old in the chest? Who would do that to a baby,” Vedia Hailey told the Tribune outside John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital where her grandson died.
The shooting left the boy’s grieving mother sobbing into a SpongeBob SquarePants pillow while surrounded by friends and relatives.

“I don’t know how me and my family is going to go on. My baby was everything,” Amber Hailey cried.

The shooting also wounded a 26-year-old woman who is in stable condition after being shot, authorities said.

Brown was expected to start second grade this year.

His aunt, Andrina Hailey, called Amari’s death “a waste” and pleaded on Facebook for a stop to violence.

“Please stop killing our FUTURE! All my nephew wanted was to eat candy, sneak freeze pops, laugh and dance. WHY was he murdered?” Hailey wrote. “Now he is gone too soon.”

The boy was excelling in science and loved to show off a ribbon he earned for a science project, his family told the Tribune.

A 22-year-old mother was found stabbed to death inside a Bronx park early Sunday, and the father of her 2-year-old son was accused of killing her and trying to cover up his bloody tracks.

The body of Jasmine Gonzalez of the Bronx was discovered in Bronx River Park after her ex-boyfriend — the alleged killer — called 911 at 5:58a.m., claiming he had stumbled upon the corpse while walking a dog belonging to the dead woman’s family.

Khiry Borden, 25, was taken into custody after police found his book bag, containing bloody clothes, in the Gonzalez family home just seven blocks from the park, relatives said.

He was charged Sunday night with murder, manslaughter and weapons possession, police said.

“He came back here while everybody was sleeping. He changed his clothes to a new set of clothes he had in his bag,” Gonzalez’s sister, Jayselle, told the Daily News.

The sister said police found Borden’s book bag behind a curtain in the living room of the family’s E. 225th St. house. Inside it were a pair of bloodstained jeans and a towel, along with an empty package for kitchen knives, Jayselle Gonzalez said.

“He asked my mom for the dog chain. So my mom gave it to him,” she said. “So, I guess when he took the dog down there (to the park), he made it seem like he was walking the dog and found his baby’s mom dead.”

Police said Jasmine Gonzalez, whose body was found in the park near E. 226th St. and Bronx Blvd., was stabbed multiple times in her midsection. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Gonzalez’s inconsolable family rushed to the park from their house when they learned what happened.

“That’s my little sister laying down over there,” said her sobbing brother JJ.

“Oh my God! Oh my God! That’s her,” said Gonzalez’s mother, who was not identified.

The mother identified a hat lying near her daughter’s body as belonging to the ex-boyfriend, whom she called “the devil.”

She said the father was given custody of the boy, even though he lived in a Brooklyn homeless shelter.

“They got into a dispute,” the sister recalled. “It was physical and the baby was around when it happened. So they took both of them to jail. They called child services on my sister.”

She said an uncle was caring for the child Sunday.

Police said Borden has seven prior arrests. Those crimes include slapping a pregnant woman in the Bronx in 2010 and robbing a 17-year-old girl, cops said.

“My mom is going through it right now,” Jayselle Gonzalez said. “That was my only sister. I was crying this morning, but I feel like, am I going to cry forever? She’s gone. There’s nothing I can do to bring her back. She’s always going to live in my heart.”

Police in Newport News, Virginia, say a 23-year-old man was fatally shot by police after he ignored their pleas to put down a sawed-off shotgun.

Police Chief Richard Myers said Kawanza Jamal Beaty was shot early Saturday in the ship-building city. He says the three officers involved in the fatal chase were put on paid administrative leave while separate investigations are conducted.

While Myers said his department has been a leader in equipping its force with body cameras, none of the officers involved in the chase was wearing one.
Police Chief Richard Myers said Kawanza Jamal Beaty was shot early Saturday in the ship-building city.

As Bobbi Kristina Brown spends her remaining days in hospice care, "ET" can confirm that someone took photos of her from inside her room.

"ET" was one of the media outlets solicited on Friday but has declined the unseemly offer. At the time, the pictures were going for a rate in excess of $100,000.

Her aunt, Leolah Brown, took to Facebook to express her disgust, saying that she will have anyone who came near Bobbi Kristina take a lie detector test to reveal the source shopping the photos around. "You took that picture thinking you gon get some money for it...and thats gon be it!" she wrote. "...guess what!????!!!! I will myself if no one else does-see to it that -YOU be revealed!!!!"

Leolah added, "YOU will not do to my niece what YOU did to Whitney! Everyone knows who YOU ARE!"

While stories about Bobbi Kristina's health have reached a fever pitch, there has been no change in her condition. There have been plans, however, to tent the hospice's entrance to protect the entire family from cameras and curious on-lookers, but security hasn't been increased yet.

Bobbi Kristina has been at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Georgia since mid-June. Family members, including her father Bobby Brown, and friends have been holding bedside vigils for her.

A former top aide to Mayor de Blasio’s wife served as a backchannel messenger to both the mayor and the Rev. Al Sharpton, emails released to the Daily News Thursday reveal.

Rachel Noerdlinger provided Sharpton, her former boss, with insider info and delivered “talking points” to Sharpton to have him attack unfavorable stories on de Blasio, the emails, provided to the News as part of a Freedom of Information request, show.

She also got Sharpton to lend a hand when de Blasio was under fire for interceding on behalf of a supporter, the Rev. Orlando Findlayter, who’d been arrested for outstanding warrants related to traffic violations and a civil disobedience arrest.

On Feb. 14, 2014, Findlayter announced he would address questions about the arrest at a press conference to be held at Sharpton’s National Action Network headquarters in Harlem.

Rachel Noerdlinger, embattled aide to NYC First Lady Chirlane McCray, leaves office as mayor slams 'repulsive' scrutiny by media

That afternoon Noerdlinger - who was on the city payroll as a $170,000 chief of staff to First Lady Chirlane McCray - emailed Sharpton from her City Hall email address.

The subject line was “Bishop Orlando Findlayter to Address Press tomorrow.” Noerdlinger stated, “Sorry I have been at a speaking engagement with Chirlane is there a way for this not to happen? It is an unnecessary distraction."

Sharpton promptly canceled the event, telling the News Thursday, "The rationale was if he's in a legal proceeding, he shouldn't say anything."

Noerdlinger also served as City Hall’s conduit when they needed Sharpton’s help combating what they perceived would be an unfavorable Wall Street Journal story.

At the time, de Blasio was dealing with the Findlayter headache and sparring with the press after his drivers were caught speeding and running a stop sign.

She also got Sharpton to lend a hand when de Blasio was under fire for interceding on behalf of a supporter, the Rev. Orlando Findlayter, who’d been arrested for outstanding warrants related to traffic violations and a civil disobedience arrest.

The mayor’s then-top spokesman, Phil Walzak, sent a long list of talking points to Noerdlinger to forward to Sharpton so he could defend the mayor to the Journal.

“Pls share w Rev our thanks for his help on this. Below are background and talking points,” Walzak wrote.

She immediately forwarded them along, stating, “Rev. Sharpton: Please see below. I am going to find out the timing and whether it needs to still happen today.”

It also went the other way.

On Feb. 19, 2014, days before the public was told the city was going to settle the contentious stop-and-frisk case, then-mayoral aide Peter Ragone circulated a memo to “senior cabinet” members, including Noerdlinger.

The memo revealed the city was about to settle “the racial profile lawsuit” within days. Noerdlinger then emailed de Blasio’s top political aide, Emma Wolfe.

“Emma can I be helpful at all with validators/community endorsers (RAS) let me know. This is a big deal.” RAS stood for the Rev. Al Sharpton.

In the emails Ragone considers letting the law enforcement unions, including the Patrolmens Benevolent Association, in on the settlement the morning it’s announced.

It isn’t clear from the emails when the unions were actually told, but Wolfe told Noerdlinger to give Sharpton the heads up at 5:45 p.m. that day.

Charges for assault and battery against the rapper, 45, have been dropped.

A spokesperson of the Los Angeles County district attorney's office announced no felony charges will be issued and instead the star's case has been moved to city court to decide if the dispute should be listed as a misdemeanor.

"We are thankful that the district attorney rejected felony charges in this matter," Diddy's attorney, Mark Geragos, told the LA Times. "This case never should have been part of the criminal justice system to begin with."

The mogul was originally arrested after he reportedly attacked the school's assistant football coach and an intern with a kettlebell during an incident after a football practice.
UCLA defensive back Justin Combs made a splash when he signed to play for UCLA.

The coach, Sal Alosi, allegedly rubbed Diddy the wrong way when he mocked his son by posting photos of him sitting courtside with his dad during football practice in the gym, then later kicking him off the field during a workout.

"While you guys were training, this guy is sitting courtside with his dad," he allegedly told the team.

When the rapper approached Alsoi later about his actions the reported fight began.

UCLA has not released a detailed statement of the incident although Diddy has continued to say that he acted out in self-defense.
