Homicide, Suicide On Beach 67 Street

by Joan Ward George


Carolyn Knight, 28, of Beach 67 street, Arverne, was shot to death Tuesday night in front of her Beach 67 street, Arverne home by her boyfriend Almondo Joseph who then turned the gun on himself and committed suicide with one shot to his head.

Knight and Joseph, 27, of Rosedale, had reportedly been dating for more than 10 years, but according to family members, things were not going well in the relationship of late. Carolyn was a computer operator and described by family and friends as a sweet girl. Knight’s family told police the couple had been fighting over Joseph’s involvement with another woman.

Carolyn’s death marks the third homicide in the 100th precinct this month, after a period of 18 months with no murders in Rockaway’s westend precinct.
