Two Kingston homicides remain unsolved six months after first killing

Daily Freeman-9 months before

City police continue to investigate that homicide and the shooting death of Myron T. Moye Jr. about a week later, Kingston Police Detective Lt. Thierry Croizer said Thursday.

He said detectives still are assigned to both cases, which authorities have referred to as unrelated.

"We are still actively working those investigations," Croizer said, though he declined to provide details.

Thomas, 27, of Kingston, was killed Oct. 24, 2019, near the intersection of Cedar and Prospect streets in Midtown. Moye, 36, also of Kingston, was fatally shot Nov. 1, 2019, in a house on O'Reilly Street in Midtown.

Police have made an arrest in the Feb. 11 fatal shooting of Kingston resident Ashley Stephan Dixon. In that case, Cory Q. Smith, 35, of St. Ann's Avenue in the Bronx, was charged with second-degree murder in an indictment handed up by an Ulster County grand jury on March 6. He had been in federal custody for a probation violation since the day after Dixon, 31, was killed outside a building at the Stuyvesant Charter apartment complex on Sheehan Court, authorities said. 

Three homicides in Kingston in a span of less than four months appears to be without precedent. In fact, it's been rare in recent decades for Kingston to have more than one homicide per year, and the city sometimes has gone several years in a row without a killing.
