    NY - Antonio Ciccarrello, 97, cause of death was stabbing 55 years earlier

    I never started a thread before so I hope I am doing this right . I read this story and thought it was very interesting. I don’t see much hope in solving it. Anyone have thoughts?

    It’s a 55-year-old stabbing that’s now a present-day New York City murder investigation after the victim died a few months ago at the age of 97.
    Two NYPD detectives have been pounding the pavement in a quixotic hunt for clues after the coroner ruled Antonio Ciccarello’s death in September a homicide.
    A man with a knife jumped Ciccarello from behind early on a dark and rainy morning on the Lower East Side in 1958 or 1959. The assailant stabbed Ciccarello, on his way to work as a porter at a Times Square building, in the back. Doctors saved his life, but in doing so caused a blockage that the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office said was the cause of his death five decades later.

    I don't think there's a snowball's chance in Hades that the perp will be located. It is encouraging to read that NYPD is actively working the case. I hope that's a sign that other cold cases are being investigated.

    I'm going to move this thread to Cold Cases.

    Yes, this is like hunting for a snowball in July in East Tex! Not gonna happen! Nevertheless, it's interesting. Especially since the coroner can relate a physical problem to something that happened 55 years ago.
