Channel 11: WPIX News

September 26, 2012

PIX 11 News reporters Arthur Chi’en and Mary Murphy did an in-depth story about the Feb. 26, 1988 assassination of PO Edward Byrne whose killers are now up for parole.  Veteran news reporter Mary Murphy covered the murder in 1988 and was the first to air the videotaped confessions of the killers.  Using vintage, often shocking,  news footage from 24 years ago and an interview with former PBA Queens South trustee Tony Keller who responded to the scene of the assassination, Chi’en reports the impact of this high-profile drug murder. The incredible five-minute long story concludes with a pitch by the reporter for viewers to visit the PIX 11 website in order to express their feelings about paroling cop-killers to the state.
