D.A. Bragg expressed his gratitude to the NYPD, especially Detectives Rosita Williams and Jerald Rivera of the Manhattan Special Victims Squad, and the staff of the NYC Office of Chief Medical Examiner, particularly Katey Nori and Shannon Talty. Brown, a Brooklyn resident, is considered innocent until proven guilty.
