(OFFICIAL)-Man accused of murdering NYC elderly housing residents due in court

A man accused of murdering at least three elderly residents of a senior housing development in New York City over the span of six years was due to appear in a Brooklyn court on Friday.

The New York City Police Department on Thursday announced it had detained Kevin Gavin, 66, in connection with the murders of three women that took place at the Woodson Houses in Brownsville between 2015 and 2021.

Gavin was familiar with many of the elderly residents of the complex, according to law enforcement, and even used to run errands for some of them.

NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison said investigators pieced together a timeline of the disturbing events thanks forensic evidence and witness testimony that led them to identify Gavin’s first victim as Myrtle McKinney, 82, found by her home health aide on Nov. 9, 2015 inside her apartment.

“Initially, it was believed that Ms. McKinney died from natural causes.” Rodney told a press conference. “But while being examined a stab wound was discovered.”

The wound in the woman’s neck led investigators to classify her death as a homicide but the case remained open for years without many leads. Gavin claimed his second victim, Jacolia James, 83, in 2019, police said. Forensic evidence eventually led police to investigate Gavin as a suspect, Harrison said.
