I read the recent obituary on Donald Shea with interest [“NYPD vet dead at 90,” News, July 29]. But it left out a key fact about the arrest of bank robber Willie Sutton.

Arnold Schuster, the man who pointed out Sutton to the cops, was gunned down on March 8, 1952, just three weeks after Sutton was nabbed. Police theorized that a Brooklyn mob boss ordered the hit to punish Schuster for being a snitch, but no proof was offered.
