David J. Dalaia (65) and James O'Hare (65) pushed Virgilio Cintron from a Manhattan apartment that O'Hare and Cintron shared to Pay-O-Matic in order to cash Cintron's social security check. Normally, a nice thing to do. But in this case it could be fraud if they knew Cintron was dead. (Perhaps the defendants did not know he was dead or didn't realize that this may be wrong?)
"The witnesses saw the two pushing the chair with Cintron flopping from side to side and the two individuals propping him up and keeping him from flopping from side to side," said Browne a New York police spokesman. A police detective who was having lunch at a restaurant next to the check-cashing store noticed a crowd forming around Cintron's body, and "it's immediately apparent to him that Cintron is dead," Browne said.
(Now that is great detective work! The Irony is that Citron, being dead, is ineligible to cash a check, but likely he will be allowed to vote in the next elections. Go figure. As always the suspects are presumed to be 100% innocent unless and until proven otherwise!)
Beth Ann Chester
In an unrelated act of incredibly bad judgment, Beth Ann Chester, a 26 year old health and physical education teacher at Moon Area High School in suburban Pittsburgh, was charged with sexual abuse of children, statutory sexual assault and related counts. She admitted to having sexual relations with a 14 year old student. Police found naked photos of the teacher on the boy's cell phone.
