Brooklyn, NY - Facing 50 years to life in prison for the ghastly kidnapping and murder of Brooklyn landlord Menachem Stark, suspect Kendel Felix asserts he was only the driver in the failed January 2, 2014 robbery which led to Stark’s death, a claim supported by the lead detective on the case.

The 28-year-old from Brooklyn is charged with snatching Stark from outside his office during a snowstorm and driving the getaway van, according to an article in the New York Daily News (http://nydn.us/2acfEl9).

NYPD Detective Christopher Scarry testified at Felix’s pre-trial hearing today, saying “He (Felix) was quiet, lazy, laid back, a follower, definitely not the mastermind of this.” At issue in the pre-trial hearing is whether Felix’s statements were obtained legally by law enforcement, and whether they can be admitted as evidence at Felix’s trial, scheduled for this August. Detective Scarry stated that Felix’s testimony was lawfully obtained, and that Felix was read his Miranda rights, given food, allowed bathroom access, and was not coerced or threatened. 


According to Felix’s April 2014 recorded testimony, as well as his written statements, it was his cousin who orchestrated the robbery and said Stark “has a lot of money and we can get a lot of money.”

Felix alleges he couldn’t have lifted Stark into the van or moved his body into the garbage bin on Long Island because of injuries he sustained years ago in a motorcycle accident.“I was scared s—-less,” Felix said of the robbery and murder. “This was not my thing.”

Felix admits he did carpentry work on one of Stark’s properties, but said he never met him. He also confessed to paying cash for the gasoline used to burn Stark’s body after Stark was killed. His other three co-defendants have not yet been charged.

Stark had dozens of enemies in the construction business and most subcontractors would only work for him if he paid them Up front. This guy may be telling the truth.

I'm so tired of these weak lies about previous injuries making it impossible to commit a crime. If someone can walk and has relatively good muscle mass, they can manage to throw someone into a dumpster. I agree that a doctor would tell them to be carefull how they lift and not to carry so much weight but push comes to shove, they can do it.

I believe Felix, there are higher ups that ordered him to do it.

Look, without this momzer assisting in the kidnapping, Stark would have still been alive. He is legally just as culpable, as the one who killed the trigger. Prior to 1967, he would have been sentenced to death. In Texas, these kinds of heinous crimes are not tolerated, and those convicted, pay with their lives. Even if it takes 15-20 years on death row, the law eventually catches up with these scum. Also, it should be noted that where PaulinSaudi (he always posts his scholarly words of wisdom on this site) lives in Saudi Arabia, the government takes individuals such as the momzer in this heinous crime, to a public square, within a short time after conviction. Then, they behead such miscreants with a sword. There, there are no long drawn out appeals. Saudi Arabia's system must work, because their rate of homicide is a fraction of what exists here.
