A New York hedge fund manager has offered to pay the funeral costs for a woman killed in a horrific attack over the weekend.
Darren Weingrow never met Delores Gillespie, who was doused in gasoline and burned to death in the elevator of her Brooklyn, N.Y., apartment building on Saturday, allegedly by a handyman she had fired. But he was moved by reports that Gillespie's family was having difficult paying for funeral and travel costs.
"I'm not a philanthropist," Weingrow, who owns Choice Investments, told the Prospect Heights Patch. "I'm an investment guy. But this was devastating. The last thing you should have to worry about is where you're going to stay or funeral expenses."
The ghastly crime was caught on two security cameras, which allegedly show the suspect, Jerome Isaac, dressed as an exterminator, dousing a cowering Gillespie, 73, with the accelerant and then igniting her with a Molotov cocktail.
