NYC Burger King murder accused arrested in death of 19-year-old woman: ‘makes your blood boil’


New York City Authorities announced Friday that they have arrested a suspect who killed 19-year-old Crystal Byron-Nieves Sunday morning.

Winston Glynn, 30, has been charged with murdering Barron-Neeves and criminal possession of a weapon. He has four prior arrests on charges of intimidation, criminal possession of weapons, assault and criminal mischief, officials said at a press conference Friday.

Glynn is accused of shooting Baron-Nieves, who was working at Burger King in Harlem just after midnight, struggling to unlock the cash register she was forced to open.

“When you look at the video and think about it … the brutal, brutal killing of a teenager who is doing the right thing – working to shorten her life at 12:30 pm on Saturday night – it will make your blood boil and shock you. The NYPD Chief of Detectives James Said W. Essig.

After being called to Burger King just before 1am on Sunday morning, authorities were unable to save Beran-Neves and “began to canvass the area in search of the subject using a picture taken from a security camera.”

Glynn was seen wearing a black ski mask and a black jacket with white earphones hanging on a security camera footage – which ultimately led to his arrest, officials said at a press conference.

Glynn was working at the same Burger King location in 2020, but there was no indication that he knew the victim, police said.

The suspect walked into a fast-food restaurant early Sunday morning and pistol-whipped a customer who was walking to the cash register where the store manager and Beyron-Nieves were working. He allegedly stole about $ 100 from a cash register before shooting the teen. The manager also stole the phone before fleeing the store.

The suspect in the security camera footage captured before the shooting wore different clothing but still had white earphones in his pocket. Police used the footage to identify the interested person and later confirmed that he was a former employee of the restaurant.

Newly elected Mayor Eric Adams said police understand that “Crystal is not just a number” amid other killings in the city.

Adams, who met Bayern-Neves’ mother, Christy Neeves, called the case “personal” and praised the police for their “old-fashioned commitment” to arresting the perpetrator.

“We will not return our city to violence,” he said. “That’s the promise I made as a candidate and I’m going to be mayor.”

Byron-Nieves had been a cashier at Burger King for only three weeks and had already requested a day shift because his family was afraid to stay up all night.

Kristy Neeves told a New York Post translator in Spanish that the girl was worried about her safety because she was young and “she slept with more than 50 homeless people in front of the store.”

Nieves said she felt guilty because her daughter was scared but encouraged to go to work that day.

“She was not entitled to step down while working at Burger King,” a police source told The New York Post.
