Police in New York City are hunting the Hispanic who was behind the wheel of a BMW when it slammed into a cab, killing a pregnant Hasidic Jewish woman and her husband on their way to the hospital
Julio Acevedo, 44, has a long criminal record and spent eight years in prison for the 1987 shooting death of the "original 50 Cent," a black criminal named Kelvin Martin who inspired the rapper of the same name. Acevedo was arrested for drunk driving just weeks before the crash that killed Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21. Doctors were able to deliver the child Raizy was seven months pregnant with, but the baby boy died the next morning. A friend of Acevedo's from prison says that the fugitive has called him seeking guidance at least four times since the crash. "He has remorse," the friend says. "He wants to turn himself in." The friend says that Acevedo was speeding at the time of the crash because he had been shot at a short time earlier.
