Bratton: Stark Investigation “Very Active”


menachem-stark-family1While NYPD investigators continue to examine a minivan they believe might have been used in the abduction of R’ Menachem Stark z”l, the New York chief of police is mum on what has been discovered thus far in the extensive investigation.

However, Police Commissioner William J. Bratton did tell reporters that the case remained “a very active investigation that I’m satisfied is moving along to resolution,” according to the New York Times.

As for the van, investigators are still trying to conclusively determine whether it was, in fact, the vehicle used in the kidnapping.

The police have not publicly identified any suspects in the case and there has been little progress visible to the public.

The body R’ Menachem was found on January 3 in a dumpster at a gas station in Great Neck, Long Island. He had been kidnapped the night before as he was leaving his office at 331 Rutledge Street in Williamsburg, shortly before midnight.
