‘She didn’t have to die like that’: Relatives mourn Brooklyn woman killed by backhoe

The home health aid who was killed by a backhoe driver in Brooklyn Friday was remembered as “generous and loving” by her distraught loved ones on Sunday. Heartbreaking video obtained by The Post showed a yellow construction vehicle striking 61-year-old Estelle Davis with its shovel before running her over and dragging her along the corner of New Lots and Van Sinderen Avenues in East New York. Two of Davis’s godchildren came by her East New York home to light four candles on the stoop Sunday. “This the hardest pill to swallow. I don’t get it. She was a pastor. She loved God,” Tiffany Bowen, 30 told the Post. “She lived like an angel, and when she died I know she

Smokin’ hot models get cheeky with Bravest in Midtown

Things are getting a little too hot at this Big Apple firehouse. A series of Instagram pics shows two smokin’ bikini-clad models getting separately cheeky with Bravest at Engine 8/Ladder 2 stationhouse on 51st Street in Midtown Manhattan last week. “I was on fire,” model Vera Smirnova wrote when posting her sexy photos — which include her donning a fire helmet and even getting a ride on the shoulders of a smoke-eater Friday. As if that weren’t enough, the same firefighters were also snapped with social-media model Anastasia Fields, who caused a stir last year when she showed some skin while posing with NYPD cops in December. The Siberian beauty has since butt-flashed her assets throughout the city — and

Shootings will keep rising until the politicians admit their disastrous mistakes

Despite the wintry chill last month, the anti-police policies of recent years kept things pretty hot on the streets of Brooklyn, The Bronx and other crime-ridden parts of the city that continue to experience an epidemic of gun violence. NYPD figures for February show a 26.5 percent drop in overall crime but a 75 percent jump in shootings for February 2021 over the same month last year. The NYPD made 400 gun arrests last month, up 63.9 percent from February 2020. Since Commissioner Dermot Shea last summer pulled the plug on the plainclothes anti-crime units that had been central to the NYPD’s anti-gun efforts, the increase in gun busts suggests there’s a lot more guns on the street now. Yes, the

Julius Randle needed 4-year-old son’s reality check to become All-Star

Julius Randle knew something was wrong with him last March when his young son Kyden began mimicking his anguished demeanor on the court. Kyden was playing basketball on his miniature hoop and scored while his father gave him, “a little love tap on the play.’’ “And y’all I swear: he turns around, he looks at his mom the ref, and he starts giving her The Look,’’ Randle wrote in his spectacular essay for the Players’ Tribune last week. “He gives his mom that ‘are you kidding me’ face, throws his arms up in the air, and then starts in on her — you know, like: No call?!? Where’s the call?!? “And we’re cracking up, of course — we’re like, ‘Oh

Is Andrew Cuomo too weakened to stop the left from destroying New York?

With state Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins now calling for his resignation, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s position just got even more untenable. He can claim it’s “all politics” and vow to keep governing, but he may well be unable to do his job without selling out the people who elected him. Over the weekend, fourth and fifth accusers came forward to finger him for off-color behavior in the workplace. New questions also arose about why his staff ignored the procedures for investigating such charges, as did claims that he sent a ringer to his mandatory training on harassment. And the bleeding will continue. More women may speak out, or more shoes may drop on his coverup of nursing-home fatalities in the wake of his March 25 order that sent COVID-contagious patients

NYPD cop knelt on teen’s back, fired gun — but is still on force: court docs

An NYPD officer lied for almost a decade about the circumstances of a 2009 Bronx shooting in which he straddled a teenager and fired into his lower back at “point-blank” range, according to newly unearthed court documents. Officer Danny Acosta allegedly peddled a phony story for years, lying under oath by claiming that the teen suspect had been holding a gun to his female partner’s head before he shot him from 10 feet away. Acosta, 41, finally admitted the tale was bogus five years ago to a city Law Department attorney while falsely believing the confession was privileged, according to court papers. Despite his stunning admission and the fact that he’s now battling perjury charges, Acosta remains on the NYPD

Another failed WHO whitewash of China’s COVID guilt

The World Health Organization basically just admitted to trying to get away with yet another whitewash on behalf of China’s rulers. The agency last week acknowledged that the report by a team of “investigators” supposedly looking into the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic in Wuhan isn’t worth anything — and the agency is scrapping it. The WHO team still plans to publish a summary along with a final report to be released later. But the simple fact is that it didn’t actually investigate anything. Kudos to the international group of more than two dozen top scientists who called out the fraud and demanded a real probe into the bug’s origins. They noted that the WHO team completed its “investigative mission”

Ali-Frazier I ‘was some show’ — and not just in the ring

The first time it occurred to Jim O’Brien that maybe this beat would be a little different was just past 8:15 on the evening of Dec. 7, 1970. O’Brien was 28 years old, about a year into a nine-year stint as a reporter and columnist for The Post. He’d covered the Knicks’ championship run seven months earlier. That was something. “But this,” he recalls, “was something else.” The beat was boxing — specifically, Muhammad Ali, who on this night would be fighting Oscar Bonavena in his second bout back after a 3 ½-year absence from the sport due to his refusal to submit to the draft. It was also presumed to be the final tuneup for what everyone knew would

Florida man arrested for murder after new wife found buried in backyard

A Florida man was busted after his newlywed wife’s remains were found buried in their backyard, authorities said. Roberto Colon, 66, of Boynton Beach was arrested Saturday on a charge of first-degree murder in the slaying of 45-year-old Mary Stella Gomez-Mullet, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported. The couple tied the knot in January just weeks after meeting each other, news station CBS12 reported. Colon allegedly told authorities that he wed Gomez-Mullet to give her US citizenship in exchange of taking care of his mother, the outlet reported. Gomez-Mullet was reported missing on Feb. 20 after a friend overheard a concerning encounter between her and Colon over the phone, police said. The pal told authorities that Gomez-Mullet was yelling, “No, no,

Where to Buy Stanley Tucci’s Glasses in ‘Searching for Italy’

Not only is Stanley Tucci the most fabulous personal tour guide in CNN’s Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy, but he also happens to be a style icon. Yes, the six-episode docuseries may have lovingly documented Tucci’s travels around Italy during COVID-19, showing off the local food, cocktails, wine and history—but many viewers couldn’t take their eyes off the round, black glasses he wore in the trailer. Want to add a pair of these simple frames to your repoirtoir? Here’s the bad news, not even Tucci knows who made his glasses. According to Jacqueline Hernandez at CNN PR, the glasses were a gift. “So, he’s not sure who makes them because there’s no branding on them,” she says. The good news?
