RB fatally stabbed hours after HS graduation

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Nineteen-year old Isayah Muller of Truman High School in New York City died from stab wounds he received merely hours after graduating from high school. According to a report in the New York Daily News, Muller and his family were leaving his commencement ceremony and on their way to dinner when Muller's father, Andre Muller, got into a fight with a couple of parking attendants whom his father believed stole some items from the family's car.

The joyous family had left the commencement at Lehman College around 4 p.m. to head to a celebratory dinner at City Island, cops said.

But after they pulled out of the Jerome Ave. parking lot, the elder Muller noticed some "expensive fragrances missing from the car," a source said.

He then turned around and drove back to the lot to confront the attendants about the missing cologne, which he had bought as a graduation gift for his son, cops said.

Once back at the M.T. Jerome Town Corp. lot, a furious fight erupted and quickly turned violent as two attendants pulled out knives on the unarmed Mullers, relatives said

"Neither of them were armed," said Myrna Valentin, 54, Muller's grandmother. "[Andre] picked up a shovel and snapped one of them with it and broke his arm."

Isayah Muller was stabbed twice in the fracas - once in his side and once in his chest - as his horrified mother, Rosa, and his girlfriend looked on.

Muller was then put into the car by his family and taken to a clinic ten blocks away before being transported to St. Barnabas Hospital. He died there from his wounds, as his heart was pierced when Muller was stabbed in the chest. In a cruel twist, Andre Muller has been charged with assault and possession of a weapon. The parking lot attendants were still being held for questioning.

Isayah Muller had planned on attending Nassau Community College in the fall.
