Family and friends of slain Chasidic businessman Menachem Stark, are wondering why they haven’t heard from the office of newly installed New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, a source close to the Stark family told The Algemeiner.

The source, who did not wish to be named, said “The mayor’s office has had no contact with the family at all.”

“We are talking about seven orphans. Seven children who lost their father due to a kidnapping and murder. Where is the mayor when it comes to this case?” the source cited a family member as saying. “We ask the mayor to come and show respect to the orphans.”

Earlier Tuesday, NYPD Chief of Department Philip Banks paid a visit to the mourning family in Brooklyn, and New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton held a press conference to update the public on the ongoing investigation into Stark’s murder.

The killing is by far the most high profile since De Blasio’s new administration took office at City Hall at the start of this year.

The Stark family member was also critical of “inappropriate” NYPD leaks of “hurtful information” regarding the case, the source said.

Menachem Stark was abducted by two men on Friday morning who were seen on surveillance footage bundling him into a white van. He was found dead on Saturday in a Long Island dumpster burnt from the waist down.

Concerned that their patriarch’s killers will get away, the Stark family has announced a bounty of $25,000.

  • Perhaps if those in the Brooklyn Hasidic Community ready to lynch the NY Post and question why Mayor Bill de Blasio has not paid a visit to the Slumlord/LoanShark’s family, had held also held up a mirror up in their community to this Faux Philanthropist who robbed from the “Goyim” to give back to their Community, then they might have standing to critique the NY Post and Mayor Bill de Blasio for not paying homage to this rat.

      Tell us the truth. Are you a self hating Jew?

  • NYC NYPD are investigating the murder of the Brooklyn based Hassidic Slumlord and LoanShark. Given the shady nature if this character and who he had dealings with, it is important that the Mayor allow the Police to do their job before chiming in. Bill de Blasio is the Mayor for all of NYC not just Hassidic Gangsters.

    • Vito Scopetto

      If De Blasio is Mayor of all NY, that means everyone including Hassids. You make no sense.
      Your remark re: “Hassidic Gangsters” is presumptuous, derogatory and has overtones of ant-semitism. It’s ill-conceived and dumb.

  • E Pluribus Wombat

    Nor will they. Only a few weeks ago one de Blasio’s colleagues who represents that part of Brooklyn on the city council stated publicly that Jewish landlords are devils.

    • Vito Scopetto

      You insinuate that Mr. De Blasio is like a certain colleague who made unsubstaniated, broad and nasty remarks targeted to a particular group. Your remark and insult is just that.
