Isaac Kadare, Jewish Store Owner Found Dead in Brooklyn
Bensonhurst, NY - A father of four was found dead last night on the floor of his 99-cent store in Brooklyn, police said.
Two customers walked into the shop at 1877 86th Street in Bensonhurst at 8:45 p.m. and found
59, unconscious. Responding medics found he had suffered head trauma.
An employee told The Post she spoke to a detective who said cops were investigating the death as a probable homicide. A police source said cops haven’t ruled out a heart attack followed by a fall.
Margarita Roman, 38, who has lived in the building housing the shop, said Kadare bought it 11 years ago.
He operated two shops on the ground floor and rented out apartments upstairs, she said.
Neighbors said Kadare had come to the United States from Israel. He and his wife have two teenage daughters, a teen son and a 10-year-old daughter.
“His family is always there,” Roman said. “His kids are always there. His wife is always there. They weren’t there tonight.”
But after learning the news, family members quickly showed up.
“The wife looked lost. The little girl was just hysterical. She didn’t know what was happening,’’ another neighbor said. “They wanted to go into the store but they weren’t allowed.”
*Volunteers from the Misaskim Organization were on the scene through the night, to ensure the highest caliber of Kavod HaMes.
