Men wanted for questioning in murder of burned NYC couple

Published

on

Police are looking to question two men about the grisly slayings of a former college basketball player and his girlfriend, who were found riddled with bullets and burned beyond recognition in a car in the Bronx in May.

Cops on Thursday said they are seeking 30-year-old Jahmel Sanders and 34-year-old Steven Santiago for questioning in the murders, which law enforcement sources at the time tied to a purported gang war sparked by a stolen purse.

Police released surveillance photos and old mugshots depicting Sanders and Santiago, although neither one has been named a suspect in this case yet.

At around 4:19 a.m. May 16, police responded to a call about a car on fire on Shore Road, near the Pelham/Split Rock Golf Course. Inside the Honda Accord, they discovered the charred bodies of Jesse Parrilla and Nikki Huang, both 22.

Parrilla died of gunshot wounds to the head and chest, while his girlfriend was shot in the head and neck. Both suffered extensive burns to their bodies.

n Monday, May 16, 2022 at approximately 0419 hours police responded to a 911 call of a vehicle on fire on Shore Road in the vicinity of Pelham Split Rock Course, located within the confines of the 45 Precinct. Upon arrival police observed a sedan on the side of the road engulfed in flames. FDNY personnel already on scene extinguished the fire and discovered two unidentified bodies inside of the vehicle. Both aideds were pronounced deceased on the scene by EMS. The Medical Examiner to determine the cause of death. The Fire Marshal to determine the cause of the fire. The investigation is ongoing.

Jahmel Sanders, 30, is being sought for questioning about the couple’s murder.

Law enforcement sources told The Post at the time that the tragic couple was executed in a series of retaliatory shootings after Huang complained to her gangster friends that members of a rival gang stole her purse near a housing project in Manhattan.

The sources said Parrilla played no part in the dispute between the Up the Hill and Down the Hill gangs, and was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Parrilla played basketball for one year at Genesee Community College and had no criminal record.

Jesse Parrilla and Nikki Huang were found shot to death and burned inside a car left near a golf course in the Bronx.

His mother, Michelle Morales, who owned the car the pair was killed in, said her son knew Huang from middle school.

“He was a good-hearted person just helping a friend out with a ride,” she said through tears. “I don’t think he was aware of anything. He had no idea what was going on because he would never put himself in a situation like that.”

Sources told The Post that after Huang was mugged on the Lower East Side in early May by suspected members of the Down the Hill crew, instead of going to the police, she went to her pals in the Up the Hill gang for justice.

A series of shootings followed, beginning with the killing of 39-year-old reputed member of the Down the Hill gang Brandon Atkinson, who was gunned down in Alphabet City.

The Down the Hill crew quickly retaliated by allegedly shooting two suspected Up the Hill members on Pike Street.

More violence followed when Down the Hill members reportedly snatched Huang while she was hanging out with Parrilla, and forced her at gunpoint to get a friend of hers to leave his house in Maspeth, Queens, resulting in his shooting.

Hours later, Huang and Parrilla were driven to the Bronx, where they were executed inside the car and set on fire.

Nikki Huang (pictured) was found along with Jesse Parrilla burned beyond recognition inside Parrilla's mothers' car in the Bronx.
Law enforcement officials said the couple were executed as part of a gang war after Huang complained to members of the Up the Hill street crew about getting mugged.

Huang worked at Wa Lung Kitchen, a Chinese restaurant in the Lower East Side owned by her mother, Amy Chan, who also owns Nails by Nikki, a nearby nail salon.

Earlier this month, Chan griped about the news coverage of the unsolved gangland-style murder, arguing that it was “so unfair” that her daughter, who was a victim, was being blamed for what had happened.

Chan told PIX11 that on the morning of her daughter’s killing, Huang had just been dropped off at home by Parrilla when she got a call from his cellphone asking her to come back downstairs.

Not knowing that Parrilla had been carjacked by suspected gang members minutes earlier, Huang went to meet him. Her mother said before leaving the apartment, she took off her necklace and placed it on a floor mat, “knowing she was probably walking into danger.”

“Another piece of info about Nikki, she would never ever not be there for a friend that she thought may be in trouble,” Chan wrote in an Instagram message to PIX11. “If she did, she may still be alive today and never went back downstairs that tragic night after receiving the call from Jesse’s phone.”

Chan said her daughter worked three jobs to save up for an apartment, loved her brothers and cousins, and “had so much life ahead of her.”

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

One player unsuccessfully tried to score the plate YESDADDY, to no avail.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.
