Nearly a year after his daughter was found dead in Huntington Station, Cesar Rosales, speaking Wednesday at a vigil remembering Maggie Rosales and three others killed in Huntington Station over the last two years, urged the community to reach out to local officials to improve safety.
Maggie, 18, was killed Oct. 12, 2014; Daniel Carbajal, 25, July 23, 2014; Luis Ramos-Rodriguez, 38, June 28, 2014; and Sarah Strobel, 23, Oct. 3, 2013. Questions regarding the four cases remain largely unanswered, although Adam Saalfield, a former neighbor to Maggie, is accused of stabbing the Walt Whitman High School senior to death and is next due to appear in court Oct. 29.
“Everybody who has lost a loved one knows the pain. That’s the pain my family feels loosing Maggie,” Rosales said, pleading community members reach out to local government officials. “The streets are dangerous, especially at night… we need more patrols. We need more lights. We need to awake about this problem in our society.”
