Police Reopen 1986 Murder Case Of Chaim Weiss; Student In Long Beach Yeshiva


weissMore than 25 years after the pajama-clad body of a 15-year-old Yeshiva student was found in his dorm room at Mesivta of Long Beach, Nassau County police said they are reopening the long-cold case – even raising the Crime Stoppers reward in hopes of gaining new leads.

Chaim Weiss of Staten Island NY, was found dead by a dormitory supervisor in 1986.

At first, police said Weiss was bludgeoned to death, but the next day they said he died of multiple stab wounds to the head, neck and face.

No murder weapon was found and the case went cold more than 20 years ago.

Police are expected to hold a press conference with the family next week and raise the reward for information leading to an arrest.
