In a New York Daily News article just posted, it was reported that NY Coin Dealer Steve Halfon,61, was robbed and murdered yesterday.

According to the story, at 5:30 pm yesterday Halfon had just closed his shop , Liberty Coin Co on Kings Highway in Gravesend, Brooklyn  and was walking to his car,when he was set upon by three men. Witnesses said the attack, in broad daylight was vicious and that the attackers beat Halfon and then stuffed him into the trunk of a Black Volvo and drove off.

A short time latter, Halfons body was discovered by a passing motorist on East 7th Street in Midwood who notified police. The Volvo used in the attack was found shortly thereafter abandoned several blocks away.

As reported in the Daily News article witnesses said “One guy gets out, covered in blood, and walks down the street like nothing happened,” said a witness. The suspect threw his bloody T-shirt, a Yankees hat and a gray hoodie in a sewer before running away with the two others.”

At this time there are no details as to what or how much was stolen from Mr Halfon, though police were told that he often carries large amounts of cash on his person. It is not believed that any coins were taken or that the suspects gained entry into Mr Halfon’s coin shop.

The three suspects are still unidentified  and no arrests have been made.
