Tell Patch: Do You Feel Safe in Teaneck?
Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
Authorities announced last week that an Elm Avenue man found dead after a house fire was murdered. The killing comes nearly seven months after the brutal murder of town gadfly Joan Davis.
Robert Cantor, the Elm Avenue man, was found shortly after midnight last Monday by firefighters battling a three-alarm fire at his house. Investigators said Cantor died from a gunshot wound but have not said if there are any suspects or leads in the case.
The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office, which is handling both murder investigations, has released few details on the crimes. The prosecutor's office has also not said if the two crimes are related. There was no mention of the Davis case in a statement released by the prosecutor last week. No evidence has been made public to suggest any connection between the two murders.
Do you feel safe in Teaneck? Has the recent news of a second murdered township resident caused you to change your life at all? Are you more vigilant? Are you satisfied with the amount of information being made public in the crimes?
Anyone with information on the killings can call the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office Major Case Unit at 201-226-5500 or Teaneck Police at 201-837-2600.
