Published on June 25, 2010
Police didn't have to go far to spot a murder suspect in Long Island. He was standing outside his Elmont home, puffing on a cigarette as his brother and father lay dead inside. Dario Ormejuste, 24, was arrested Thursday for fatally shooting his brother, Guerby Ormejuste - a Rikers Island correction officer - with his automatic service weapon. He used the same gun to kill their 65-year-old father, Bob, police said. "We have no idea what prompted this act of violence," said Det. Sgt. Anthony Repalone of the Nassau County police. The suspect was charged with two counts of murder and awaiting arraignment at criminal court in Hempstead. Nassau County police said that Rose Ormejuste, the suspect's mom and Bob Ormejuste's wife, was missing. They were also searching for Guerby Ormejuste's gray 1998 Lexus ES 300. Cops made the grisly discovery after Guerby Ormejuste, 30, mysteriously missed work at the Eric M. Taylor Center on Rikers Island for two days. He was found in the home's kitchen about 4:20 a.m. His father's body was discovered a short time later in the basement.The gun was recovered inside of the home, police said. Guerby Oremjuste, who was on duty when a female officer tried to get a peek at celebrity/rap star Lil Wayne, had been a correction officer since March 2007."
