Daily News: Killing With A Smile

Philadelphia Daily News recounts sadistic murder.

Smiles don't come naturally to people who kill.

That's why it was such a shock when a man who had just shot and killed another man in a Port Richmond diner early Saturday flashed a smile at a cashier as he left.

Police identified the killer as Hector Maldonado, 20, a convicted felon, and issued a warrant for his arrest charging him with murder and related offenses in the slaying of Cesar Reyes. Reyes, a father of four and an entrepreneur, owned a hair salon and an after-hours club in his Kensington neighborhood.

The smile means evil, said Reyes' mother, Maria, after learning of her son's death. "He is with evil," she said.
