“Today’s surrender of Jamir Thompson is the direct result of the hard work and dedication of the Yonkers Police Department,” stated Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano. “Their tireless efforts in tracking this individual gave him no other choice than to turn himself in for his heinous crime against a young woman with a bright future. Great job by our Yonkers’ finest. I look forward to seeing justice served for the sake of the family and friends of Marilyn and our Yonkers community.”

Police Commissioner Charles Gardner stated, “Jamir Thompson has been taken into custody and will now have to answer for his despicable actions. I applaud the dedication of our Police Officers and Detectives and their on-going, relentless pursuit of justice for the family of Marilyn Cotto Montanez.”

Thompson was booked on a single charge of Murder 2, a Class A-I Violent Felony in the New York State Penal Law. It is expected that Thompson will be remanded to a juvenile detention facility subsequent to his arraignment as a juvenile offender. The case is being prosecuted by the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office. Additional information may be released as it becomes available.

NOTE: Booking charges are merely accusations and the defendant(s) are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.

  1. The mayor correctly stated “we got him”. Yes he turned himself in but he was surrounded, the YPD hunted him down like a rat and had the block where he was staying surrounded. He knew he was caught so he called an attorney and asked for the attorney to contact the YPD to negotiate him surrendering on his own. So yes the mayor is right! We got him!!

  2. Hezi, the Mayor first posted “We got Him” , that was not the case.
    The Mayor starts his day at Manor Bagel and ends it off at Gianna’s. I hope the Mayor starts knocking on doors, maybe he’ll drop a few pounds.

      The posting is as stated received from Yonkers City Hall.

      When I read it, the press release advised that he turned himself in at 1 o’clock in the morning today.
