South Ozone Park
Murder suspect nabbed in Guyana
BY ROBERT POZARYCKI
A South Jamaica man was booked
on April 25 nearly eight years after he
allegedly gunned down a South Ozone
Park resident during a house party.
Troy Thomas, 33, of 156th Street
faces a second-degree murder charge in
connection with the Dec. 11, 2011 murder
of Frank Keith, 20, of 129th Street.
According to Chief Assistant
District Attorney John Ryan, Thomas
was located in Guyana and recently
arrested; he has since been extradited
back to Queens for prosecution. Thomas
allegedly shot Keith during what was
described as a “petty dispute.”
“The defendant has been on the
run for seven years, but today, he is
in our custody and will answer for the
senseless killing of a 20-year-old man,”
Ryan said. “The family of the victim
deserves justice for their deceased
Sources familiar with the
investigation said that Thomas and
Keith were known to each other,
but declined to elaborate on that
association. The motive behind the
shooting was also withheld.
Keith was fatally shot in the torso
outside of a party at a home on 132nd
Street near 109th Avenue at about 4:44
a.m. on the morning in question.
Paramedics responding to the scene
rushed Keith to New York Hospital
of Queens, where he was pronounced
dead a short time later.
Nearly eight years later, “good
police work” led detectives to Thomas,
a law enforcement source said.
During an April 25 arraignment
hearing, Queens Supreme Court
Justice Kenneth Holder ordered
Thomas held without bail and to
return to court on June 13. The suspect
faces up to 25 years to life behind bars
if convicted, Ryan added.
