Statement from Borough President Diaz
RE: The Murder of Yaritza Pacheco

“It saddens me that, once again, an act of random violence has struck down one of our own. Yaritza Pacheco was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, and for that she has needlessly lost her life and a child has lost a mother. Ms. Pacheco’s senseless death illustrates why we cannot and will not tolerate illegal guns on our streets. The thoughts and prayers of the entire Bronx go out to her family in their time of mourning,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
