The murderer of a 30-year-old jogger in Queens, New York indicated he killed the woman because she was white.
“I don’t like those people over there,” confessed killer Chanel Lewis, 20, told a black detective, the New York Post reported.
Lewis refused to talk to a white detective but when black detective, Barry Brown, interviewed him he waived his miranda rights and gave two videotaped statements.
Brown is regarded as “best detective in Queens for getting confessions,” sources told the Post.
He told the detective that he was angry and took it out on Karina Vetrano in Aug. 2013 as she jogged by him.
“I was angry. I had some issues at home. I just lost it. When I saw her, I just hit her and kept hitting her. I hit her and choked her,’’ he said, according to the Post.
The accused murderer gave “very detailed, incriminating statements” where he described “each step of the assault,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said at a news conference.
Lewis’ DNA was found under Vetrano’s fingernails, on her back and on her cellphone, Boyce told reporters.
“The perp said he had a bad temper. He confessed on video about the assault specifically. He did not want to admit to the rape,” a source close to the investigation told the Post.
Lewis said he had a fight with family members on the day of the murder and went to Spring Creek Park to cool off when he spotted Vetrano and took his aggression out on her.
