IN MEMORIAM

Arlene Nelson

Arlene Nelson

Does anyone remember Arlene Nelson shot in the head accidentally he said by her boyfriend name long forgotten and a good thing too. Stuffed in a closet in a walk-up apartment in a row house on a treeless block in Coney Island a long long time ago. O the sad thrill we girls got when we saw her name in the Daily News: someone we walked past in our high school hallways someone some of us actually spoke to. Does anyone remember a trial a sentence. You may have been a slightly slutty teenaged girl but stuffed in a closet to die—no.
