NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Four detectives who were involved in the manhunt for Det. Peter Figoski’s killers testified in the murder trial of Lamont Pride on Monday.
Jurors were also shown pictures of the officer’s bloody uniform and shield during the trial on Monday.
“Family and his colleagues had to sit and see photographs of his bloody uniform, photographs of the shield we take so proudly and wear on our chest, photographed as evidence. That’s difficult to do when you know that police officer as a friend, you know him as a colleague. But more importantly than that, you know him as a son or a father – very difficult testimony,” Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association President Pat Lynch told WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell.
