Arrest Made In Timmons Murder

By Joan Ward George

Eight years of relentless police work and "stick-to-i-tive-ness" led to Wednesday’s arrest of Deirdre Brown, 40, for the July, 1992 murder of Elizabeth Timmons, the 87 year old widow of a city cop who was killed during the course of a robbery in her Seagirt avenue apartment.

"Good old fashioned police work" is what Detectives Calangeis and Cashen of the 101 Precinct detective squad are being credited with by police officials. Brown was charged with murder, robbery, manslaughter, conspiracy, and criminal mischief for her part in the August 1, 1992 murder.

Police are still convinced that Brown robbed and murdered Mrs. Timmons with a male accomplice.

Detective Cashen told The Wave Thursday that they know Brown’s accomplice is still out there, that there is still a $7,000 reward out for his capture, and that they will not stop until they put him behind bars.

Anyone with information about Mrs. Timmons murder or Brown’s alleged accomplice is asked to call Detective Calangeis or Cashen at 718-868-3449.
