The incident itself was one of the darker moments in the city's history—a black teenager was killed in Bensonhurst by a mob of white teens—but a decade later, one of the men convicted in the killing met with the victim’s father inside of NY1’s studios. Jeff Simmons filed this report on January 21, 1999.
