Search for family of construction worker killed

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

The victim killed in the partial building collapse in Brooklyn has been identified, but authorities are having trouble finding a relative to notify the family about his death.

67-year-old Winston Gillett, a Jamaican immigrant, was killed Monday after falling 35-feet at a construction site in Fort Greene.

Mr. Gillett's last known address was on Irving Avenue in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn.

"I urge anyone who recognizes Mr. Gillett to come forward so that we can provide closure to his family at this tragic time." said Council Member Letitia James.

Any individual who recognizes Mr. Gillett, and is in contact with his relatives, should reach out to the Office of Council Member Letitia James at (212) 788-7081 immediately.
