Cell Phone Strapped To Bottom of Menachem Stark's Car Give Police New Lead

Police investigators working on the Menachem Stark case announced this weekend that they discovered a cell phone strapped to the bottom of Stark’s car, which they believe was used as a tracking device by his abductors. The police are currently searching for the owner of the phone.

Stark, a Hasidic business man, was abducted and murdered on January 2. Ten days later, little is known about who killed him and why. Police commissioner William Bratton called the case “a complex investigation.”

On Saturday New York City mayor Bill de Blasio pledged to find Stark’s killers. “We will find who did this to (Stark) and who robbed children of a father and a wife of a husband…The NYPD are… making this a high priority to solve this once and for all,” he told “Community Matters” radio host Leon Goldberg.
