Kevin Gavin Arrested
According to police, 66-year-old Kevin Gavin killed three residents at Carter G. Woodson Homes between 2015 and 2021.
“Mr. Gavin knew most of the residents in the building and ran the business of some of the older tenants who lived in that place,” said Rodney Harrison, NYPD Chief of Detectives.
Harrison lives in the building, Harrison said. He added that he had previously been arrested on many drug-related charges.
Harrison said Gavin murdered 82-year-old Myrtle McKenny, who was found by a paramedic at his home in November 2015. Police said they initially believed McKenny died of natural causes, but further investigation revealed a size stab wound.
The second murder victim was 83-year-old Jacolia James, found by her grandson in May 2019.

“Ma’am. James had extremely suspicious wounds on his face and neck,” said Harrison.
Juanita Caballero, 78, was found on January 15th with a telephone cord wrapped around her neck.
“I wanted the community to know how devastating these losses were for the people of Brownsville and the residents of these homes,” said Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez. “These women, who are dear mothers, grandmothers, and neighbors, are the fear that exists in Woodson Houses about what is going on there.”
“I am sure the defendant has benefited from his relationship with these women, was allowed into their home and committed inexplicable acts of violence against them,” Gonzalez added. “I think this arrest will have a profound effect on the sense of public safety in Brooklyn.”
Police say they think Gavin attacked women after discussions about money.
Authorities said the case is ongoing.
