Family demands investigation after Bronx man's death
BRONX (WABC) -- Cynthia Ali and the rest of her family are demanding answers. They say 72-year-old Judge Ali, a dad, grandfather, and great-grandfather, was found laying in the street in the Bronx last Friday night.
Somewhere near East 233rd and White Plains Road. He was critically injured.
"He was brain dead. He was unconscious, broken back, broken ribs, broken collar bone. His brain shifted. It was too much to name," Tiara Pierce, the victim's cousin, said.
Pierce was the last relative to see ali before his death. She dropped him at a barber shop on White Plains Road, at 5:00 on Friday. The fire department confirms that just after 9:30 p.m. They did respond, to a call on 200 33rd street of a pedestrian struck.
Ali's family says they don't understand why police never investigated afterwards.
"how is there a body and there's no follow up?" Cynthia Ali said.
"The doctors at the hospital said the way his body was, it had to have been a car that hit him," Denise Ali-Hoffer, his daughter, said.
Emergency workers brought Ali to Jacobi Medical Center where his family pulled him off life-support on Wednesday night. This family's grief is now compounded by the mystery.
