Summary of Case


The Death of Sun Ming Sheu:
A Government Sponsored Assassination?

On June 26th, 2010, on a secluded street in College Point, NY, Queens resident Sunny Sheu was found mortally wounded and taken to New York Hospital of Queens, where he died shortly thereafter. The NY Medical Examiner determined the cause of death to be "blunt force trauma to head with skull fractures and brain injuries." and the manner of death is “undetermined”, requiring a criminal investigation under NY law.

Two months prior, Mr. Sheu made a video stating that if he were harmed, it would be at the hands of NY State Supreme Court Judge Golia "and his men”; referring to two Queens District Attorney Bureau NYPD Detectives who had illegally detained him and allegedly threatened his life.

The Underlying Mortgage Fraud Case

For ten years, Mr. Sheu had been fighting a mortgage fraud case, which threatened his home ownership. The fraudsters acquired the mortgage of Sheu's home by forging the signature of Sheu's brother. Even though the fraudsters were arrested by the police and convicted for forgery, the banks continued to pretend that the fraudsters' mortgage was valid, and when the fraudster's failed to pay the mortgage, the banks got the house.

When Shue went to court, he found out that the Judge (Joseph Golia) refused to consider the proof that he transfer was made by fraud.  Sheu claimed that he was denied due process by Golia, whom he believed was in league with the fraudsters. For more details, see the Back Star News series “Junk Justice”.

Sheu Asks the FBI For Witness Protection after Kidnapping by NYPD

According to Sheu, on January 14, 2009, he was illegally detained by NYPD detectives Dominic DeGenaro and James Monaco of the Queens District Attorney's Bureau (identified as such in this unrelated article). Sheu claimed  the detectives told him that his house "belonged to the bank" and threatened him with death if he went to the authorities or press. Queens DA spokesperson Kevin Ryan confirms Sheu’s detention on that date, but refuses to state a reason for the detention or provide a warrant.

In an April 9, 2010 email to Special Supervising Agent Rachel Rojas of the New York FBI, Mr. Sheu told Rojas that he had been "kidnapped" by the detectives, and warned that if he went to the media about his mortgage case or filed complaints against Judge Golia, he would be killed.  At the end of the email, Sheu begs Agent Rojas for witness Protection. Rojas’ only reply: “Be careful”.

Despite the Sunny also went to the Blackstar News, which wrote and in depth article about his legal ordeal, including his kidnapping.  

Sheu Investigates Golia’s Finances

On 11/6/2009, Sheu filed a complaint of financial disclosure fraud against Judge Golia with the Ethics Commission of the NY Office of Court Administration (OCA). The complaint including allegations of non-disclosure of real estate properties worth millions of dollars, including the $700,000  Breezy Point beach house he did not declare.


The Ethics Commission felt that Sheu's complaint had enough merit that they demanded an amended financial disclosure from from Judge Golia. [When a public official is suspected of making misrepresentations on their financial disclosure form, they are required to submit an amended form to correct misrepresentations on the original form. Failure to correct every misrepresentation is grounds for felony charges against the official.]

On June 23nd, 2010 The Ethics Commission informed Sheu that the Golia's amended form was available. Sheu went to the OCA that day to pick up the amended form.  


Upon reading the amended form, and assessing that that Golia's misrepresentations on the original form had not been remedied, Sheu announced to the OCA that he had sufficient evidence to prove that Judge Golia was guilty of fraud. His exact words - captured on an audio recording by his colleagues - were: "Now I have enough evidence to put Golia in jail".

Sunny Shue is Killed

Three days later, On June 26th, 2010 at 3:15 PM, Sunny Sheu was found on the street in Flushing, NY, with severe head trauma and in a coma. He was taken to New York Hospital of Queens by EMS, where he died at 8:15 PM.

Medical Examiner Autopsy Contradicts NYPD and New York Hospital ER Doctor on Cause and Manner of Death

Zeeshan Ahmed, the ER doctor attending Sunny, LIED about the cause of death, saying there was "not a scratch on his head", and Detective Chris Austin of the 109th Precinct falsely stated that there was "no head injury" and that Sheu died from "natural causes" due to an "aneurism"

However,  The Official Medical Examiner's report confirms that Sheu died from "blunt force trauma to head with skull fractures and brain injuries" and that the manner of death is "undetermined" (no "aneurism" is mentioned in autopsy) Under NY State law, “Undetermined”deaths require an investigation.

Dr. Ahmed later confessed to Blackstar News editor Milton Allimadi that he had known there was head trauma at the time of the incident, and that "foul play" was involved. 


TWO WEEKS after the Medical Examiner determined that Sheu had died from "blunt force trauma to head with skull fractures and brain injuries", the NYPD was still maintaing that Sheu died of "a seizure" and that there was no head trauma", a position they still hold, despite its blatant contradiction of the Medical Examiner's autopsy findings. 


It should be noted that under law, the NYPD has NO AUTHORITY to rule on the cause and manner of death. That is the exclusive purview of the Medical Examiner. 

No Investigation by NYPD or Queens DA - Coordinated Cover-up by NYPD, Queens DA, NY Hospital, OCA and Others

To date, there has been no investigation into the death of Mr. Sheu. Rather, the response of the NYPD to Mr. Sheu’s death indicates a coordinated effort  to obfuscate and cover up the circumstances of his death. 

Specifically; the NYPD:

dispatched personnel to the New York Hospital of Queens to “identify” Sheu’s body and transfer the body from the hospital to the Medical Examiner for immediate autopsy, before the body could be officially identified by his next of kin,.


stated that the cause of death was an "aneurysm" with “no head trauma” and that the manner of death was "natural”- statements contradictory to the Medical Examiner’s report.

sent a false memo to the Chief Medical Examiner  stating: "the squad is holding this case as an accident with no criminality”. But detective Ardisano of the 109th pct states that the squad was not informed of Sheu's death because "there was no head trauma"

- Falsely claimed that they interviewed a “witness” who had called 911 to report Sunny's condition, and who Sheu "collapse" and "strike his head".  Tapes of all the 911 reports obtained through a FOIL request, prove that not one of the three 911 callers mentioned seeing Sheu collapse. They all report a man lying on the ground. 



No Response from NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly

On May 18, 2011, the Black Star News sent a certified letter to Commission Kelly, requesting an investigation and a response to FOIL requests. Receipt was confirmed, but Kelly has not responded.

NYPD IN Violation of New York Freedom of Information Law

The NYPD has repeatedly violated the crucial NY State FOIL laws in regard to this case. Recently the NYPD ignored its final deadline to respond to an appeal of the Blackstar News' original FOIL requests. 


Among the Unanswered Questions in the FOIL Request:

-who ordered the detention?
-what was the official purpose of the detention?
-who was the alleged "witness" that "saw Sunny fall" and dialed 911?
-What EMT workers transported Sunny to the hospital?
-what NYPD officers identified Sunny Sheu's body, and how did they do it?
-who ordered the illegal transfer of Sunny's body eight hours after his death?
-who at the NY Hospital authorized the illegal transfer?
-why did the NYPD send a false report to the Coroner?
-why has there been no investigation of an "undetermined" death?


The NY Office Of Court Administration's "Ethics Commission" has also refused to release the financial disclosure documents of Judge Golia, despite the fact that their sole purpose is to procure and make available these precise documents to the public. 


The Blackstar News has requested these documents through FOIL, but the OCA has ignored the FOIL request. 


To our knowledge, Judge Golia is the ONLY NY Supreme Court Judge who's financial disclosure forms are being withheld from public scrutiny. 

Golia's Alleged Links to the Russian Mafia

An affidavit posted to the web by a Russian immigrant in 2010 alleges connections between Judge Golia and the Russian Mafia. A chilling document.

Updates:

Recordings of 911 witnesses Finally released by NYPD - prove that Detective Austin provided false evidence to the Medical Examiner:

Nearly two years after a FOIL request was made for tapes of the three 911 calls relating to Sunny's death, the NYPD has finally made these tapes available. The tapes contradict the official note sent to the Medical Examiner by NYPD Detective Austin. "The 911 caller stated that the decedent was walking with a pedometer in his hand when he collapsed." According to the tapes, none of the three witnesses mentioned seeing Sheu walking. All three report finding him "lying on the ground". No documentation of any other interviews with the witnesses had been provided, despite numerous FOIL requests. None of the names of the witnesses have been supplied and all are redacted from the tapes, in violation of FOIL rules. Here is the letter from the NYPD that accompanied the tapes.

New York Hospital Denies that Dr. Ahmed Works There, Despite His Profile on Their Website!

The New York Hospital, trying to cover up the false statements of Dr. Ahmed regarding the cause of death are now claiming that he has NEVER WORKED there!, though he did and DOES to this day, as an ER Resident.

3/29/13: Queens DA Spokesman Kevin Ryan Lies about Investigation...

Queens DA Spokesman Kevin Ryan claims that the DA has never investigated the murder of Sunny Sheu because according to Ryan: "The Medical Examiner determined that there was no criminality"

Not only did the Medical Examiner never determine that there was no criminality; the Medical Examiner has nNO AUTHORITY to determine criminality. The M.E. can only determine the cause and manner of death. Why is Queens DA Ryan lying about this? 

4/2/13: Fraudulently Redacted Documents from the Queens Medical Examiner's Office Indicate complicity in the cover-up by parties at the Medical Examiner's Office.

Analysis of the Certificate of Death provided by the Queens Medical Examiner's office illicitly altered the document before releasing it in response to a FOIL request.


The facts above comprise compelling evidence that there is a cover up of the death of Sheu, including an effort to skew the ME’s report and prematurely dispose of the body. At the very least, the NYPD’s refusal to investigate an “Undetermined” death, and their violation of FOIL laws, make this story of critical to all Americans. If a resident of the United States, can be threatened by a government entity, ignored by authorities and media, and killed without investigation, we are all in grave jeopardy...

7/19/14 Blackstar News Complaint to Philip Eure, Inspector general of the Department of Investigation, NYPD Division

BSN
BLACK STAR NEWS


From: Will Galison, Blackstar News
To: Philip Eure, Inspector General over the NYPD
NYC Department of Investigation

80 Maiden Lane
 New York, NY  10038

7/19/14

Re: The Ongoing Cover-up by the NYPD of the Assassination of Sunny Sheu

Dear Mr. Eure:

I am writing to you in your capacity as the new Inspector General of the New York Police Department. I am a fourth generation resident of Manhattan, a musician by profession and a journalist by avocation. I am also a good friend and professional colleague of Gina Belafonte and her family, who have a close friendship with Mayor DeBlasio.

This letter regards the ongoing cover up - by elements of the NYPD - of the
murder of Sunny Sheu, a victim of high- level mortgage fraud, and a whistleblower.  It also regards the apparent attempt by members of the Department of Investigation to convince the complainant that an earnest investigation is underway, when it does not appear to be.

Sunny’s case was discussed in depth in
my 2012 article for Truthout.com, and is also the subject of a blog, which has received nearly 80,000 views so far. It was also covered by New York’s Blackstar News, and many other reputable news sources.

While evidence of the NYPD’s complicity in Sunny’s actual murder is circumstantial, it undeniable that elements of the NYPD have been involved in its cover-up since the day of his death
on June 26th 2011. It is also evident that elements of the NYPD committed numerous felonies during the events that lead up to Sunny’s death, and in its immediate aftermath. It is these criminal acts that fall directly and uniquely under your jurisdiction as Inspector General of the New York Police Department:

NYPD crimes related to the death of Sunny Sheu


-
In February of 2009, Sunny was illegally detained for hours without a warrant by two NYPD detectives of the Queens DA squad. According to Sunny’s sworn testimony to the FBI, these detectives threatened Sunny with death if he should go to the press or the "authorities" regarding his complaints against the judge in his mortgage fraud case. They also told him that “his house belonged to the bank”, and that he should stop his efforts to save his home in court. The warrantless detention has been confirmed by the clerk of the Queens DA and has been widely reported.

Sheu was so alarmed by the detention and threats that he went directly to the FBI, the OCA the CJC, the Blackstar News and other media,
and posted a video on Youtube, stating that if he were killed, it would be at the hands of “Golia’s men”, meaning the NYPD detectives who detained and threatened him on Golia’s behalf.

-
At 5:30 AM, June 27th 2010– less than ten hours after his death, several NYPD officers went to the New York Hospital in Queens, illicitly “identified” Sunny’s body, and had it transferred to the Queens Morgue. There is no legitimate way that these officers could have identified Sheu’s body (unless they were the same detectives who abducted him), and as there was no “official” crime or investigation, the summary removal and autopsy without identification by next of kin was illegal and bizarre.

-According to
Deputy Chief Medical Examiner Corrine Ambrosi, the NYPD officers who ordered the removal of Sheu’s body did not register their names with the Medical Examiner’s office; an egregious breach of protocol.

-Less than one hour after Sunny’s death, NYPD Detective Chris Austin of the 109th Precinct falsely told Sunny’s friends (including a medical doctor) that Sunny had died of an aneurism- with no head trauma- and refused to send detectives to take a witness statement from them (audio evidence available).
This false claim was repeated weeks later (after the Medical Examiner’s report contradicting it) by another detective of the 109th precinct.

-On June 28th 2010, NYPD  Captain Chris Austin of the 109th Precinct
made a report to NYPD Medical Examiner Liason Detective Grant, relating false information regarding Sunny’s death. In his report, Austin conceded that Sunny did indeed have head trauma (he could not hide this fact from the M.E.) but claimed that a 911 witness told police and EMS that “the 911 caller stated that the decedent was walking with a pedometer in his hand when he collapsed”, and that [homicide] squad was holding this case as accidental, with no criminality”. The actual 911 tapes, obtained through FOIL, prove that none of the three 911 witnesses reported seeing Sunny fall. No records of any interview by Police or EMS were received in response to FOIL and no exemptions were cited. There is officially no police report of the incident. More bizarrely, the Queens DA's office has claimed that the investigation was called off because there were “no witnesses”.

- On July 1, 2010, the
Queens Medical Examiner ruled the cause of Sunny’s death to           "blunt force trauma to the head with skull fractures and brain injuries" and the manner of death “undetermined”. Despite this determination, which automatically mandates an investigation, the NYPD has never investigated Sunny’s death.

Doctor who treated Sunny admits“foul play”.

There is also evidence that other parties were coerced into lying about the circumstances of Sunny's death. Zeeshan Ahmed, the ER doctor that was treating Sunny when he died,
vigorously denied at the scene that Sunny had suffered any head trauma at all. When confronted by Blackstar News publisher Milton Allimadi about the discrepancy between this denial and the official coroner's finding of “blunt force trauma with skull fractures and brain injuries”, Ahmed admitted to Allimadi that “there was foul play”. Essential treatment for head trauma includes trepenation, the relieving of pressure in the skull due to swelling and displaced tissue. If Ahmed's failure to trepenate, through intentional negligence or otherwise, contributed to Sheu's death, charges must be brought for manslaughter at a minimum. Letters to the hospital administrators have been ignored, and Ahmed is still employed there.

NYPD surveillance of Sheu before his death
 
Even more sinister is the fact that in the months before his death, Sunny Sheu’s personal emails were monitored and manipulated by parties associated with the NYPD. Sunny showed me, and others, emails that purported to originate from his email account, that he did not write. Sunny, who had served as an electronic communications specialist in the Taiwanese military, and who made his living as a computer technician and software developer, demonstrated to several friends how he traced the manipulated emails to hacks originating from “nypd.org”, an unofficial web presence of the NYPD. The whereabouts of Sunny’s computer is currently unknown.

The Department of Investigation’s Sham Response

After Sunny’s death, repeated,
formal attempts to bring this case to the attention of Mayor Bloomberg and Commissioner Kelly were ignored. Likewise, many other Government agencies ignored Sunny’s desperate pleas for protection before his murder, and have refused to investigate or respond to questions after his death.

This case appears to implicate parties who are being very well protected, and it appears that Jon Kantor and Eddie Lebron of the Department of Investigation are endeavoring to protect the perpetrators while diverting it from your attention and fraudulently pretending to investigate the case.

In the nine weeks since they claim to have opened an investigation of Sunny’s death:

- neither Kantor nor Lebron has ever mentioned your office, or suggested that I bring the allegations against the NYPD to your office’s attention, now or in the future. I wrote them an email asking if they had reported the case to your office, and they did not respond.

- neither Kantor nor Lebron has brought me or any other witnesses in to be interviewed. In fact Lebron has refused multiple requests to do so.

- neither Kantor nor Lebron has requested any information about the case, or clarification of any information already made public. In fact, when told that I possessed crucial videos, documents and recordings that have never been made public, Lebron refused to request them.

- neither Kantor nor Lebron has inquired about other witnesses in the case or information they possess.

Furthermore, Lebron has refused to answer any questions regarding general police protocol, and has misrepresented matters of police procedure in a way which appears to make excuses for the NYPD. For example, Lebron stated that a death, the manner of which is ruled “undetermined” by the M.E. is not necessarily subject to investigation. This statement defies not only common sense, but also the testimony of two retired NYPD detectives, Joe Mazzilli and Pete Fiorello who are assisting me on this case pro bono. These detectives- who are both willing to testify before you- have assured me that Kantor and Lebron’s handling of this case is a travesty, and an intentional whitewash.

The delinquency of Kantor and Lebron in this matter does not surprise me. During the Bloomberg administration I contacted the DOI several times regarding the Sheu case and other government abuses, and was always met with similar mendacity and disregard. Kantor and Lebron are veterans of that administration, and perhaps they have not received the memo that things have changed.

From what I have heard from the Belafontes and others, Bill DeBlasio is sincerely committed to cleaning up systemic corruption in the NYC government. I know that the Mayor will not look kindly on corruption in the NYPD and especially within his Department of Investigation. I also have researched your accomplishments and reputation, and feel confident that you share the Mayor’s convictions.

It is imperative that your office investigate this case, because the assassination of a New York citizen with the abetment of the NYPD is a matter of urgent importance, and because it falls directly under your jurisdiction. Your office should also look into efforts to whitewash this case by parties at the DOI.

I realize that you are coming into a difficult job and that you will be confronting a large backlog of cases. Nevertheless, given the extraordinary significance of the Sunny Sheu case, I would appreciate an acknowledgement of this letter from your office within the next week or two. Given recent developments and the extraordinary efforts underway to keep this case from being properly investigated, I have concern for my safety and the safety of other witnesses and sources. I believe that consulting your office is the proper channel at this point. If you feel that the case is not under your jurisdiction, I will be obliged to take up my friends’ offer to bring this matter directly to the Mayor’s attention.

Sincerely,


Will Galison

Morgue Stays Document Acquired By FOIL

- Medical Examiner provided memo

- NYPD did not provide memo

If there is no crime, why was this heavily redacted? 
Why is this not public information?

"Bung Ha" listed as "Executor' was NOT the executor of Sunny's estate, and is a funeral director with no known relationship to him. Why is his relationship status redacted?

Emails to Federal NYPD Monitor and Moreland Commissioner Peter L. Zimroth, regarding the murder of Sunny Sheu and cover up by the NYPD



From: Wgalison

To: Peter.Zimroth

Bcc: milton ; assistjm



Subject: The most egregious abuse of NYPD power - the surveillance, kidnapping, and murder of anti corruption whistleblower Sunny Sheu.


Date: Tue, Aug 13, 2013 7:52 am



Mr. Zimroth;

Congratulations on your appointment as federal monitor of the NYPD.



There is a story that you may be unfamiliar with, that represents the ultimate abuse of power by the NYPD, and which has been covered up by many state agencies as well as the FBI.

On June 26th, 2010, my friend and colleague Sunny Sheu was bludgeoned to death on a remote industrial strip in Flushing Queens.

Three days earlier, Mr. Sheu had declared to the Office of Court Administration "Ethics Department" that he had evidence of financial fraud by NY Supreme Court Judge Joseph Golia,

The Queens M.E. determined the cause of death to be "Blunt Force Trauma to the head with skull fractures and braininjuries", and the manner of death "undetermined". The NYPD maintains that Sheu died of an "aneurism" with "no head trauma". There has been no investigation.

Weeks prior to his death, Mr. Sheu made a video, later posted on Youtube, in which he says he was kidnapped and threatened with death by two NYPD detectives of the Queens DA Bureau if he disclosed the evidence against Golia. His illegal, warrantless detention was verified by Queens DA spokesman Kevin Ryan. Sheu also stated that the he begged the FBI for witness protection against Golia and the two Detectives. He further stated that if he were killed, it would be at their hands. The FBI ignored Sheu's plea and his evidence of judicial corruption. Since his death, they have never responded to communications or accepted evidence.


The NYPD ignored FOIL requests and appeals for documentation of the circumstances of Sheu's death, including thew alleged witness' testimony. Finally, when subsequent requests were forwarded to Christine Quinn, the NYPD furnished documents so heavily redacted as to be useless.

In plain terms, The NYPD kidnapped and threatened a civilian with death if he reported corruption, then after his brutal murder sent false evidence to the Medical Examiner in an unsuccessful attempt to sway his determination, and has covered up this murder for three years.

Commissioner Kelly has ignored all correspondence demanding transparency and accountability.
Shortly before his death Sheu, who had been a computer communications expert in Taiwanese intelligence, showed me forensic proof that his email communications had been intercepted and manipulated by someone at www.nypd.org, the non-governmental internet presence of the NYPD.

Further information and documentation of the case can be found at www.sunnysheu.blogspot.com
A thoroughly documented article on the case was published by Truthout.org.
Mr Zimroth; this case demonstrates the underlying depravity and criminality of the police department whose policies you are investigating.
page1image28072 page1image28232
This is nothing less than a Government sanctioned assassination of an anti corruption whistleblower, covered up, if not committed and sanctioned buy the NYPD at the highest level.

If you want to make a real and lasting difference regarding abuses by the NYPD, you will use your office to investigate this crime, wherever and to whomever it leads.

I hope to hear from you regarding this critical issue. 

Thank you.

Mr. Zimroth,

I am a part-time reporter for the Black Star News and Truthout.org. I wrote you recently about an assassination which is being covered up by the NYPD, who also appear to be complicit in its perpetration.

I have not yet received any response to your office.

This cover up of this crime seems to be so important to the NYPD that I fear I and other witnesses and reporters with information about it are also in danger of retribution. As you know Ray Kelly is an advisor to the committee and he knows my name well, from the letters the Blackstar news sent to him regarding the case.

Mu immediate concern is that I may be barred from testifying at the Moreland Commission Hearings, out of fear that I will further disclose this case on the public record, and put Mr. Kelly and others on the spot
.
I registered to speak at the hearing before the registration form was added to the page and again less than one hour after the form was added. I have metadata proving that I registered before the roster of witnesses could possibly have been filled. If I am barred from speaking at the hearing it cannot be because I registered late or because I do not have urgently important corruption to report. It will because my testimony is being blocked by corrupt commissioners.

From nines years of fighting official corruption in New York State, I am very familiar with many of the names on the roster of Moreland Commissioners. I don't need to tell you that many are deeply complicit in crimes and corruption.

New Yorkers are counting on you to make the Moreland Hearings more than a sham, a waste of taxpayers money, and a pretext for continuing the official corruption that has become the norm in NY government.
Your acknowledgment of receipt of this letter will give me confidence in your commitment to fighting corruption in New York.

Thanks very much,
