Frum Brooklyn Storeowner Found Dead


isaac-kadareA frum storeowner, a father of four, was found dead last night on the floor of his 99-cent store in Brooklyn. Two customers walked into the shop at 1877 86th Street in Bensonhurst at 8:45 p.m. and found Isaac Kadare, 59, unconscious. Responding medics found he had suffered head trauma.

Police are investigating the death as a probable homicide. A police source said cops haven’t ruled out a heart attack followed by a fall.

His family was devastated this morning.

“I don’t even know what to say. He loved his family, his four kids,” his wife, Nancy Kadare, who was looking forward to celebrating his birthday with him next week, told the NY Post. “He was a really hard-working man, I don’t get it. A person is alive one day, and the next they are not.”

Margarita Roman, 38, who has lived in the building housing the shop, said Mr. Kadare bought it 11 years ago. He operated two shops on the ground floor and rented out apartments upstairs, she said.

Mr. Kadare immigrated to the United States from Israel. He and his wife have two teenage daughters, a teen son and a 10-year-old daughter.
