    A little off topic, I haven't read through this yet, but yelp is getting some very bad reviews itself. I have heard complaints that if you don't list your business services with yelp (in other words pay them) they post negative stuff mostly from your competition. Sort of a strong-arm tactic.

    Now-I'll read.

    Some of the linked articles above in previous posts mentioned there had been financial hardships and bankruptcies for him & his partners.
    And to me, the burning of the body sounds like this was personal....someone who was very angry with him directly.

    From the article above:

    Stark’s family described him as a good man, who was well-liked in his Williamsburg neighborhood but irate tenants who complained of squalid living conditions, lenders who were never paid back and opponents of his development projects indicate he had several enemies.
