This "Supplementary Police Report" from the day after the Tankleff murders is only 12 paragraphs long, but two paragraphs are eyebrow-raisers for what they say about Jerry Steuerman, who was identified immediately after the attacks by Marty and his family as the likely suspect, yet was ignored by Det. James McCready:
"Mr. (Ronald J.) ROTHER stated that SEYMOUR TANKLEFF was retired and was involved in a number of business ventures with other people. One of those people, JERRY STEUERMAN, the owner of STRATHMORE BAGELS, was reneging on paying his debt to TANKLEFF, and that business deal was turning bad."
"MYRON FOX identified himself to the undersigned and stated that he was the attorney for SEYMOUR TANKLEFF and represented him in a number of business deals. He stated that JERRY STEUERMAN was supposed to make a substantial payment to SEYMOUR TANKLEFF in the near future and that he would make available copies of that paperwork later in the day."
