The incident occurred on the evening of November 17, 2012 in New York City.

The victim was a woman who realized she was missing her wallet containing her Chase Visa and MasterCard along with other items while at the Borough Hall subway station in Downtown Brooklyn.

Two days later surveillance tape from Chase Bank at 8th Ave. and W. 15 Street captured footage of a young dark-haired white female, between the ages of 25-30, posing as the victim and withdrawing the large sum of cash from her account. She is estimated to be around 5’3″ tall, weighing approximately 120 pounds with a thin frame.

The suspect can also be seen wearing glasses in the still-shots shown above. It is unknown if they’re prescription glasses and/or reading glasses or merely for style. She is wearing dark (possibly black) clothing in what looks like a black (light) jacket and female fashion boots.

Karen_KingKaren Lynn King (pictured left) is a 52-year-old woman from Canton, Georgia who is wanted by authorities for murdering her husband, 46-year-old Lyndon Baines Smith in Cherokee County 10 months ago.

Police say King as well as her two sons, 22-year-old Lyndon Ahlik Smith and 17-year-old Alonte Lyndell Smith, along with 22-year-old Robert Sylva Jr, 22-year-old Melvin Floyd and 24-year-old Will Cortez Robinson, also known as his stage name ”Scrapp Deleon,” all residents of Atlanta, Georgia, to help her murder her husband who was also the father of Lyndon and Alonte.

King and the five young men had planned and plotted what they were going to do for some time and on March 4, 2012, they put their plan into action.

Smith was unknowingly lured by his sons to a BridgeMill community in Canton  and while there, the five men attacked him. After beating him, Melvin Floyd placed his body into a 2004 Mercury Sable and drove to Alabama. During this long ride, Smith was still clinging to life in the trunk.

Floyd was stopped during a routine traffic stop and cops suspected something illegal was going on due to Floyd’s suspicious behavior. They asked him to get out of the vehicle, placed handcuffs on him, and proceeded to search his car. When they opened the trunk they discovered the badly beaten body of Smith, who was near death. Floyd was immediately arrested and Smith was rushed to the local hospital where he died shortly after.

The other four suspects, including Smith’s two sons, were all eventually arrested but Karen King, who was dubbed the ”mastermind” behind the murder, remains on the run.

According to authorities, King has ties to Miami, Florida which is the same City her son was captured in.

12/28/12 QUEENS, NYC — NYPD Searching For Unidentified Woman Accused Of Killing Man By Pushing Him Onto The Subway Tracks

Scene outside NYC subway station where man was pushed to his death onto tracks in front of oncoming train on night of Dec. 27, 2012, according to police, in the city's second such incident this month.

NYPD are searching for the unidentified woman who they said fled a train station immediately after pushing an unsuspecting man to his death at a Subway Train Station in New York City.

The man, who has not been identified, was standing on the elevated platform of a 7 train in Queens Boulevard in the Sunnyside neighborhood at approximately 8pm last night (12/27/12) when an unidentified woman shoved him onto the tracks.

According to witnesses, the woman was supposedly following the man while mumbling to herself and although her mumbling drew attention, it appears the victim had not noticed he was being followed. According to police, the woman was sitting on a bench and when the train pulled in, she got up and shoved the man down. The man had apparently been standing with his back to her and the woman pushed him at the last possible second, giving the man no time to defend or save himself.

The victim was hit by the first car of an 11-car northbound train and got stuck under the wheels of the second. He was pronounced dead at the scene and according to NYPD, he had sustained ‘terrible injuries that make providing a description difficult at this time.’

I heard the train screech as it was stopping and then heard this loud scream,‘ Linda Santini-Tripodis, who was under the 40th Street station at the time, told The Sunnyside Post. ‘I’m never going to forget that scream for as long as I live.’

This isn’t December’s first NYC Subway murder. Earlier this month, a very similar attack happened which involved a man being pushed his death on the subway tracks in NYC.

On December 3, 2012, 58-year-old Ki-Suck Han was pushed to his death in Time Square by Naeem Davis, a thirty year old homeless man who was also described by witnesses as ‘mumbling to himself’ shortly before pushing Han in front of a train. Davis was soon arrested after being identified on surveillance tape. He has been charged with first degree murder.

A photograph of Han on the tracks a split second before he was killed was published on the front of the New York Post the following day, which caused outrage and debate over whether the photographer, who had also been waiting for a train, should have tried to help him and whether the newspaper should have run the image. Apparently no one else tried to help up Han, either.

Police viewed footage from a 24-hour surveillance camera outside a pizza restaurant located across from the station and were able to obtain clear images of the suspect, according to The New York Times.

‘She jumps from the stairs and she just runs,’ said Oasis Restaurant owner, Giovanni Briones.

Briones went on to say that he did not recognize the woman but that a restaurant regular was on the train and felt a bump as it ran over the man.

Police have very little to go on and are hoping the public will help in identifying the suspect who is described as being 5’5” tall, heavy-set Hispanic female, in her twenties wearing a blue, white and gray jacket and Nike sneakers with gray on top and red on the bottom.
