Brandon Lincoln Woodard Murder Linked To Mexican Cocaine Ripoff, Sources Say

By Joe Parziale, DNAinfo Reporter/Producer

MIDTOWN — A ripoff involving hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of cocaine from Mexico was the motive behind the brazen execution of Los Angeles law student Brandon Woodard in the heart of Midtown earlier this month, New York has learned.

Law enforcement sources said that the killers — believed to be part of a Queens drug crew — paid “a substantial amount of cash,” but never received their shipment of cocaine from the West Coast and were fed up waiting for it.

Woodard was lured to his death on West 58th Street near Seventh Avenue where he was shot in the back of the head in broad daylight.

Sources said the federal Drug Enforcement Administration has joined the probe, considering the bicoastal aspects of the slaying, and its ties to other violence and murders.

“It is really not a homicide investigation,” one source said. “It has become a major narcotics case involving a big operation and substantial money, perhaps millions of dollars.”

The DEA is providing intelligence and resources to the NYPD about drug trafficking here and on the West Coast, and into possible connection reaching to drug distributors out of the nation of Jamaica, sources said.

Meanwhile, sources told “On the Inside” the NYPD is getting closer to identifying the cold-blooded killer who calmly pumped a bullet from a .9mm handgun into the back of Woodard’s head as he was lured to his death last week.

The NYPD has already identified the driver of the getaway car, New York previously reported.

Authorities suspect both the killer and the driver of the rented Lincoln MKZ are low-level Queens thugs with arrest records for drugs who are part of a powerful crew whose members they are trying to identify.

Neither of the possible suspects has been picked up and questioned as authorities are taking their time gathering evidence to make sure they have a strong case against them and that no false steps are made.

Woodard, who also has a lengthy criminal record including for dealing cocaine, was apparently a middleman or courier in the drug deal that went bad, sources explained.

“The Los Angeles guys thought they were tough, and could f— with the boys from New York,” one source told “On The Inside.”

They were dead wrong.

“They screwed with the wrong people,” the source said.

“These guys move a lot of money and a lot of product,” another source said. New York previously reported that Woodward’s killing had ties to several other murders and shootings.

One of three cellphones found on Woodard was linked to a Brooklyn club promoter, who was an acquaintance of three men who were assassinated earlier this year after a party.

Those victims, each packing guns, were lured to a Queens schoolyard and executed in a fusillade of AK-47 automatic gunfire as they sat in a Jeep.

Investigators believed those killing had ties to marijuana and possibly cocaine trafficking out of the island of Jamaica — and the DEA is also providing intelligence related to Caribbean traffickers.

In addition, a single shell found at the West 58th Street crime scene matched bullets sprayed into a Queens home in 2009. A man who lived there at the time — and was a possible target — was involved in a fight on Staten Island earlier this year. A few days later, his attacker with was shot and killed.

Woodard’s brutal assassination was captured on several videos that were released by the NYPD. Images of the Lincoln getaway car were later captured heading into Queens from the Queens-Midtown Tunnel, police said.

The woman who rented the car told investigators she gave it to another man, who in turn insists he lent it to someone else. Neither is considered a suspect.

Housemaid Arrested For Raping Employer’s 6-Year-Old Son, Threatening To Chop Off His Manhood
12 hours 8 minutes ago // Latest Addition | Housemaid Arrested For Raping Employer’s 6-Year-Old Son, Threatening To Chop Off His Manhood

Police in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, have arrested a woman for allegedly forcing her employer’s six-year-old son into having sex with her. The alleged incident occurred late last month.

It is understood that the alleged nymphomaniac maid from Old Lobengula suburb has since been fired. According to a source, the maid is living in fear after residents threatened to douse her with petrol and burn her alive.

“It’s a serious matter and people are angry, I think it would be best if she relocates because people want her dead. I understand that she has been given bail and one of the conditions is that she resides at the given address,” said the source.

It is reported that on the day under investigation, she was sleeping in a spare bedroom when her employer got into the room and asked her to sleep with her child. The maid is said to have obliged. After the boy fell asleep, the woman allegedly seized the opportunity to fulfill her night time sexual fantasies.

She is said to have woken up and removed the boy’s underwear before playing with his ‘boyhood’. The toddler was awakened by the groping of his organ and she ordered him to go back to sleep. After a short while, the maid is said to have undressed herself and got on top of the boy. She reportedly started making sexual moves while on top of the boy, groaning and moaning as if the minor was hitting the spot, it is alleged.

The boy was once again awakened and asked what was happening. The maid then told him that she was playing with him. She went on to insert the boy’s organ into hers and what happened next is anybody’s guess.

Afterwards, the maid threatened to chop off the boy’s organ if he ever tells anyone about their ‘sausage-in, sausage-out’ game. However, the boy divulged all to his mother, leading to the maid’s arrest. The woman appeared before Western Commonage magistrate, Mr Richard Ramaboea and was granted US$100 bail.

Rise and Shine
by Cara Hanson

Mark 1:35
Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.

John 8:2
At dawn he (Jesus) appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them.

If I had to guess, I would say that Jesus never hit SNOOZE. Okay, even if they had alarm clocks back then, he still wouldn’t have done it. Scripture tells us that Jesus got up before the sun to pray by himself. Jesus also said that he came to do God’s will and that he always did what pleased God (John 6:38 & 8:29). Logically speaking, it cannot be God’s will for us to fritter away our days by lounging around in bed or even to start out our day without prayer.

Many people live in a perpetual state of zombiehood. They “burn the candles at both ends,” and when it is time to get up in the morning, there is little energy or time left for God and our Lord. Henry David Thoreau got it right when he wrote, “The morning wind forever blows, the poem of creation is uninterrupted; but few are the ears that hear it.” He believed morning to be a sacred time when we should “awake to a higher life than we fell asleep from. Morning is when I am awake and there is dawn in me.” Too many people awake to a “higher” life induced by the fact that morning is “when I am exhausted and there is coffee in me.”

Jesus knew the secret about early morning that I never discovered until I had babies. When newborns are breastfeeding, they need to eat every two hours, and each session lasts about an hour, including time to burp and change the baby, well…you can do the math. When I was nursing each of our three children, I had to endure many sleepless nights. Just when my head hit the pillow, it would be nursing time again. Even though my eyes felt like someone had poured sand in them, what else could I do but take care of my babies who were depending on me? Those days were also the best prayer times of my life. All night long, I was praying and speaking in tongues. I am so thankful that babies get up at the crack of dawn, because they helped develop my love for the sacred time of morning.

The Bible has many references to the dawn, including:

Psalm 119:147
I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word.

Psalm 57:8
Awake, my soul! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn.

Psalm 65:8
Those living far away fear your wonders; where morning dawns and evening fades you call forth songs of joy.

Not only is daybreak the most peaceful and beautiful time to view God’s creation, it is also a great time to meditate on His Word and talk to Him. Everyone needs to depart to a solitary place and pray, so do not let yourself get talked out of this valuable one-on-one time with our Father. He is the one who made the day to begin with, so it makes sense to begin the day in thankfulness and prayer. It energizes us for the day, and puts us in a God-focused frame of mind to face the challenges of the day ahead.

Psalm 118:24
This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

My three year old asked me why the lettuce is happy (lettuce rejoice and be glad in it), and I figure he has a point. When you start your morning off the right way, everything seems to be filled with joy.

Back in the days before electricity, people kept sensible hours by going to bed when it got dark and then rising with the sun. Thomas Jefferson once bragged that in his entire lifetime, the sun never once caught him in bed. No wonder he was an architect, scientist, musician, politician, and more. Just think how much more productive we could all be if we started our days off the right way.

God is such a gracious father to give us night and day. There is a tremendous comfort and peace in the fact that no matter how much we may mess things up during one day, there is always a new dawn to try it again. Kids are a great example of this principle. By the time morning comes, they have completely let go of the previous day’s sins. I have had nights where my children woke me up several times for ridiculous reasons. Even when there has been crying and frustration, they greet the next morning with a bright smile and no mention of the previous night. By God’s mercy and grace, He does the same thing for us.

Psalm 30:5
For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.

I am certain that Jesus never greeted his apostles in the morning with a grunt and “Don’t speak to me until I’ve had my coffee.” When you begin your day acknowledging God with sincere prayer, He will direct your paths. You can give Him the glory just by the way in which you choose to start your day. If our kids come out of their rooms in a funk, I send them back to start over and try again. I tell them to remember the words of a great song, “Rise and shine and give God the glory, children of the Lord.”

Believe me, I am well acquainted with the SNOOZE button, but I have since trained my brain to resist the temptation. You can challenge yourself to open the day with praise. When you immediately start talking to God, you resist the urge to fall back asleep. After all, when we are talking to Him, you can bet He’s not dozing off. When we say, “Amen,” He doesn’t suddenly snap to attention. He’s hanging on our every word, and since this is a relationship, we should give Him the same consideration.

How frustrating it must have been for Jesus when he was about to die and his closest friends were sleeping. Rather than blasting them with a foghorn, he lovingly responds with, “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak” (Mark 14:38). I know that when he needs me, I don’t want to be caught asleep on the job. The words of our Savior ring loud and clear–we need to watch, pray, and train our flesh to be strong.

The planet Venus is called the “Morning Star” because it is the dominant object in the morning sky, exceeded only by the brightness of the moon. Clearly our Lord knew the beauty of the light of dawn; he even referred to himself as the “bright morning star” (Rev. 22:16). You can bet he and God are ready and willing to fellowship with us at this sacred time of day. Be sure to show up early like children, forgetting the previous day and reaching out toward the day ahead with a cheerful heart, ready to give God the glory.
