    Although the superficial numbers are out was there a change in how the crimes were reported/labeled?

    Given the numerous instances of police not wanting to make reports, I'm inclined to believe the real stats are a bit higher.

    Late Friday night into early Saturday morning, between 1AM and 4AM , is a popular time for cars with loud mufflers to troll the neighborhood particularly on 43rd Street from Northern Blvd up to Queens Blvd. Anyone out and about during those times should keep an eye open and perhaps forward relevant license plate numbers to the police.

    Couldn't agree more, @Opressed Masses. I live on 43rd with a window facing 43rd st and the aftermarket mufflered rice-burners are maddening.

    @DrugDealingGuru As a close friend of Lou's I can assure you that he was NOT buying illicit drugs off the street. I understand how it's easy to make that assumption and pass judgement as you have, but in this instance it's simply not the case.

    Please folks, keep in mind there is a $22,000 reward out there. If you have any information please call 800-577-TIPS.

    So what? you guys think every entourage that has loud mufflers must be involved in murders ?

    You guys have been watching too much Sons of Anarchy, This isn't SAMCRO!

    While I'm at it, why aren't people admitting that Lou was involved with drugs and could very well have been a junkie. Look up statistics for what happens to junkies, it ain't pretty and nobody pays attention to them , but let it happen to a gay activist who has a friend in a political seat and forget it, he's no longer a junkie but a symbol of injustice.

    puhhhh leasseeee.

    @TreatEveryoneTheSame. Jimmy Van Bramer attended and spoke at a rally of friends and supporters of Sunando Sen, the man who was killed at 40th Street. (Go to Queens Chronicle, and search for "DRUM and Sen") The rally was held in Jackson Heights; possibly Mr. Sen's community and support system had more members in that neighborhood. Just because you didn't see the news of the gathering for Mr. Sen, doesn't meet it didn't happen. It just didn't happen in Sunnyside.

    Many of Mr. Rispoli's friends and loved ones are here in Sunnyside, thus the vigil was here.

    Unfortunately I think the perpetrators are long gone by now, probably to a state thousands of miles away. Honestly, it doesn't look like there is enough detail out there. If they were still roaming in Sunnyside then maybe someone might recognize them based on those vague drawings, but no one outside of this little neighborhood will ever even know to look for them

    Please note that this crime has not been solved, and this is the sole reason why those who love Lou are generating publicity. The entire process is extremely painful for everyone involved.

    @DrugDealingGuru Lou was no junkie.

    @Sunnysider The perpetrators will be caught. It might take time, maybe not - but they will be caught.

  14. Mr. Murphy

    Everybody should be a bit more sensitive to this particular crime issue / forum subject. A fellow Sunnyside neighbor was killed, in a horrible manner and the perpetrators are still on the loose. Nothing to make snarky comments about. Now, if you KNOW for sure that Mr. Rispoli was buying drugs, that's a different story. Suddenly people in this neighborhood can't be kind to each other. One person hates hipsters. One person hates dogs. Everybody hates Ruben apparently, whoever he is. Can't we all just get along?

    Is this the Mr. Murphy who owns Murphy's bar?
    I hope the police solve this case - and yesterday!

    Is it possible that the perps are not from Sunnyside? I hope the sketches are shown throughout Queens, also in Astoria, LIC and Jackson Heights.

    @Mr. Murphy- I completely agree with you, and @Heartbroken, I'm so sorry for your loss.

    I realize that this is a public forum and people can say what they want. But unless folks have information that is helpful for a police investigation, (and if you do, speak up,) I wish you would stop theorizing about Mr. Rispoli's murder. If it isn't something you would say if you were face to face with someone who loved him, then keep it to yourself.

    I hope this crime is solved and soon. I have a feeling that the perpetrators are not living in Sunnyside. If they are, I think they would have been turned in a while ago.

    Sorry, but did i miss a link to the sketches? It seems to me that's a glaring omission in an article about new information. Most of the comments here indicate a great interest in helping and it seems the sketches would help at least as much as looking for white cars with bright lights and loud mufflers. Please post a link to the sketches.
    As far as the man's personal habits, they ARE relevant and should be discussed. But there seems to be a belief that his life is worth less or that it should be less important to police until other victims are more important to police. Someone's dead. Find the killers.
