Charges Dropped in Bizarre Case
Charges were dropped against the two men that were accused of wheeling their dead roommate throughout New York City in an attempt to cash his social security check.
O’Hare and Daloia, the roommates, faced charges of criminal possession of a forged instrument in connection with the other charges. A Manhattan judge dismissed the charges after stating that it could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the man was dead when the roommates left their home with him. The medical examiner confirmed the decision, stating that the man died of natural causes and the time of death was unable to be determined.
The two roommates argue that their friend and roommate was alive when they left their home and that they were given permission to cash the check in order to pay for their shared monthly expenses.
