A very good detective did a very good job, and Wednesday a suspected serial killer was brought into a Bronx courtroom charged with a killing that went unsolved for almost three decades.
"Jesus Aguilera, aka Jesus Aguilero," the court officer called out.
Aguilera was led in from the holding area, bald and bearded and burly, the cold eyes behind his state-issue spectacles going colder still at the sight of Detective Malcolm Reiman.
Aguilera was already doing double life for two other killings, and a third would not mean a minute more behind bars, but his reaction proved how much he still resented being caught.
The New York Police Benevolent Association said on Facebook, "Our hearts are heavy with the loss of our brother, P.O. Brian Kessler, who was killed in a vehicle collision on his way home from work this morning. He was just 28 years old and had less than nine months on the job."
