As Abelino Mazaniego sat on a bench in a New York suburb, after working his restaurant shift he was attacked and beat unconscious. A few days later the 47 year old father of four died of his injuries.
Three teenagers have been arrested and charged with murder while a fourth accused of videotaping the entire assault has yet to be charged. Authorities say the videotape was shared with teenagers in Summit NJ as Abelino fought for his life.
Abelino Mazaniego was a Salvadoran immigrant described by his employer as a “a hardworking, punctual, friendly employee “ and by others as a “genial, really nice gentlemen
Why was this man simply resting on a bench in an upscale suburb murdered? The answer is unclear, as the teenagers did not attempt to take the $640 in cash Abelino had in his wallet.
The injustice was not complete as Police found the victim and took him to the hospital where officials say a nurse stole the money out of the unconscious victims wallet.
Stephan Randolph (39) has been charged with third degree theft.
