Yesterday morning just after 10 a.m. we received word over the newswire that a double homicide had taken place in the Ridgewood section of Queens. The alert noted the incident occurred at Willoughby and Woodward Avenue (next to the Linden Hill Cemetery), where one male and one female were found shot inside of a car.

More details have been released since, and today the NY Post reports that the male was 47-year-old Lenny Archipolo, who has 8 prior arrests (for rape, robbery and drugs—though 5 are sealed). He was found with his girlfriend—23-year-old Yomarya Santiago—shot execution style inside of a parked but still-running car, with "her hair flowing out the open window." While the Post says there is no surveillance footage, the Daily News reports that footage shows someone parking the car at 7:45 a.m., and a man stepping out of the backseat. Witnesses also say they saw the couple with a man in a McDonald's having breakfast prior to this.

The local who discovered them, 73-year-old Stephen Chee, says, "[They were] motionless. The man’s head was turned on one side kind of limp, ashy color, off color. The hair covered the women’s face, [she was] slumped to the left side. I’m shocked at the way they died." Another woman commented on the quaint neighborhood, saying, "I've been living here since 1978 and this is the first time I've seen something like this."

A family friend of Archipolo's says his girlfriend's jealous ex-boyfriend was getting out of prison soon, and had been making threats to the couple. And the Daily Mail thinks the scene is so close to the one in Goodfellas—when Johnny Roast Beef and his girlfriend are discovered shot in their Cadillac—that they've even included a photo of it in their story!
