Three people have been released after spending decades in prison for the murder of New York clerk Harry Kaufman.

Harry Kaufman: What happened to him?

A judge acquitted Vincent Ellerbe, James Irons and Thomas Malik on charges of murder on July 15 last week. After prosecutors pointed out that the case was based on false confessions, crude witness identities and other suspect data. One of the most violent crimes in New York in the 1990s was the murder of Harry Kaufman. The victim, Harry Kaufman, was reportedly set on fire at a subway tollgate.

Ellerbe spoke to the court where he was imprisoned.

All three men, who were minors at the time, confessed to the murders in 1995 and were eventually convicted. The three nevertheless claimed that they were forced to make the same confession. Ellerbe spoke about his time in prison in court. “There is no way to undo what happened to us. They either destroy you or transform you into a monster.” Malik describes his experience: “No doubt it’s already too late, but everything takes time. It’s been a pleasure to be able to stand tall.” Irons simply said it was “fantastic” for his beliefs to crumble.

Harry Kaufman, 50, worked the night shift at Kingston Avenue and Fulton Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant on November 26, 1995. After the attackers tried to extort him, they shot gasoline through the coin slot at the toll booth. According to reports at the time, they used matches to ignite fuel while Harry Kaufman begged him not to.

Harry Kaufman was swallowed and had to escape.

Kaufman had no choice but to escape, engulfed in flames by the explosion of the booth. Two weeks later he passed away. Harry Kaufman, the father of two children, is married. The brutality of the murder was compared after the incident occurred. And a scene from the recently released movie Money Train. Iron is said to have confessed during a police investigation. He only served as a watchdog while Malik and Ellerbe actually burned Kaufman.



I am a sophomore in journalism at the KIIT Deemed University School of Mass Communication in Bhubaneswar. Writing and publishing are my dream jobs because I pursue journalism. I can write informative articles because the research on my subject is entirely based on my research work and sources. New writers are concerned that the story has already been told.
