Chanel Lewis

The 20-year-old Brooklyn man who raped and strangled Karina Vetrano once said he wanted to stab every girl at his high school.

Lewis was arrested on Saturday and charged with murdering Vetrano, 30, as she jogged in a park near Howard Beach, NY on Aug. 2.

Chanel Lewis was only 15 years old when he revealed his murderous fantasies to a teacher's aide at Martin De Porres High School, an alternative school for emotionally troubled youngsters.

"What happens if I bring a knife to school?" he reportedly told the teacher on May 17, 2011.

The school notified the police, who did not arrest Lewis, but documented him as an “emotionally disturbed person,” sources told the NY Post.

A school official said Lewis had no disciplinary record or made specific threats against any students.

Lewis lived with his single mother, his 2 sisters and their girl children. He was surrounded by women with no male figure to balance out the Estrogen-dominated household.

His father, Richard Lewis, a 70-year-old retired school principal, apparently didn't spend quality time with his son.

Lewis' half-sister, Theresa Forbes, 36, insists he didn't hate women. “He has nieces, and he played with them,” Forbes told reporters.

Lewis told police he was in a bad mood as he walked from his Brooklyn home to get something to eat in nearby Howard Beach.

He said he saw Vetrano running on a trail inside Spring Creek Park, and he snapped.

He punched her and dragged her off the path into tall weeds where he attacked her. Vetrano fought for her life, losing a tooth in the struggle.

Police say Vetrano may have bitten her attacker. Several of her teeth were cracked.

Investigators linked Lewis to DNA found under Vetrano's fingernails after he submitted a DNA sample on Feb. 2.

A judge ordered Lewis held without bail Sunday night at his arraignment hearing.

20 members of Vetrano's family crowded into the courtroom for the hearing.

    POLICE said They saw Vetrano running on a trail inside Spring Creek Park, and TOLD LEWIS he snapped.

  • Whatever

    Why was the hearing on a Sunday?

  • nick c

    No trial he confessed...

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    Don't we all know where this is going? They have a 'confession' from him. Troubled at risk youth being framed

  • NegraGata

    This means he has SEVERE MENTAL ISSUES if it is true.

  • klwbaby

    Just because he confessed doesn't mean a trial won't take place, it means the prosecution will use that against him during the trial.

  • nick c

    I don't know how they get these confessions so fast? I know one is to do your time at a "easy" prison we do have hard ones and cake ones to pull time in.

  • violet_skyz

    Honest to God when I first read the story and who he lived with I thought he lives with a whole bunch of women. I thought a young man like him has to have some sexual tension and if he is disturbed then his environment is hindering not helping. Then I saw his pic, I'm like yea dude ain't getting no @$$.....but he's been smiling in all these pics when he was questioned and arrested. Those women in the home would not be safe for too long. He is a demon and he does not belong in society. Any help he needed was obviously neglected by his family. He got lost in a world of women.

  • Di Ana

    Shame on him.

  • Lenina Just Lenina
  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    No, it doesn't, but it suggests that he should've had proper representation when being interrogated. It means that the manner in which he was handled by investigators may cost the victim's parents their case. If he is of diminished mental capacity, how does he understand Miranda rights? How can a likely coerced confession be used against him to try him for a murder he may not have committed?

    His DNA under her fingernails may be him having run and pounced on her because he recognized her or he thought she was pretty. It doesn't make him responsible for her death. If the investigators told him she is dead and he is of diminished mental capacity, he may be of the belief he killed her, even though he may not have.

    Folks need to function from a state of logic and propriety as it pertains to the judicial process, not from a state of emotion. That's the main reason it's hard to properly effectuate justice today, especially when it pertains to jury trials.

  • Man, I just don’t care™

    They have the potential to, but they are actually less likely to. Let's not forget that either.
    And no, it doesn't "exonerate" him, but we know the history of police, race and media on big cases like this. We should all keep a skeptical eye on things.

    And on a pro-Trump blog. I can't blame Trump for this derelict's actions because he has been getting arrested and released now for ages. You can see how he has aged progressively over the course of time, courtesy of each mugshot.

    I'm trying to figure out who thought it was a good idea to continue to release him from jail?!.

    That would kill him dead ??

  • MookieChu

    I do not believe that Mr. Lewis murdered Ms. Vetrano.
    Calls have been coming in to that police department regarding a stocky, white male who has been following and harassing women in the area.
    When one woman called to report being followed, with video to back it up, she was asked if the man in question was black or white. When she responded that the man was white, she was told that the department was not looking for a white man and that was the end of the conversation.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Did you read the other article? He confessed...

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    They went back to 2011 to find a comment he allegedly made? But if it was documented that he was disturbed then maybe they need to look into if he is competent enough to stand trial sane ppl don't kill ppl because they had a bad day. If they gone say that Roof boy who killed them church folks who prayed with him had issues when he plotted and planned then this guy sure has issues to do something impulsive like this. Period!!! Now all his family members need to come forward and say how crazy he been his entire life but they didn't have the resources to get him help

    It is not a bad thing to require banks to take their fiduciary duty seriously and make decisions that are in their customers best interest. That should be an obvious requirement when taking custody of people's money. Banks used Dodd frank as an excuse to not lend money like a kind of bankers protest against the government for passing the regulation.

  • Malcom Flex

    Read all the comments and was disgusting why is it primarily African american women riding hard like mammy to the rescue during instances like this?! The knee jerk and rabid defense of a probable murderer. Saying this punk is framed, etc.

    AA women are the least protected period. MOST of yall here aren't married never were married and never were protected by men period but still ...mammy to the rescue.

    Bring your tired memes tag your silly friends I don't give a f. Block me, no feels given.

    Somebody's gotta say it: ONE SIDED LOYALTY IS FOR SUCKAS and AA women are some of the biggest mammying unprotected suckas on earth.

  • kgirl33

    He does not look American ?

  • the guest

    I may not agree to your choice of words but I do agree that it is unfortunate that women of any race would defend an alleged rapist and murderer.

    There are real and legitimate dangers and vulnerabilities that women face and there are men who harm women for no other reason than a desire to harm women.

    This investigation didn't target and profile black men. There were no random traffic stops, false arrests, harassment. The months long investigation followed a direct link of DNA from the victim to the rapist-killer.

    Yes, mob hits do happen. Yes, everyone knows black men have been falsely convicted of crimes. But I believed from the start that this was a simple case of a woman raped and killed because she was vulnerable in jogging alone without male accompaniment.

    It's not racist nor racially disloyal for black women to stand with the victim Miss Vetrano and want the suspect brought to justice for her tragic death.

    I love walks on the beach or any outdoor exercise. It's sad that you could lose your life by innocently exercising. The DNA has spoken. He's a monster & I hope he dies in prison. For all of you in the comments making it about race, I bet you supported the Womens Rights marches about 2 weeks ago...hypocrites, all of you. She's a woman & did not deserve to be raped and killed. Period.

  • Simone

    Maybe I'm wasting my time but re-read the article. They did not attend high school together. He started sharing sick murderous fantasies in high school. Fast foward 5 years and he raped & murdered this innocent woman.

    His DNA was found under her finger nails. He confessed. He raped and killed an innocent woman. Race has nothing to do with it. That could've been you or me. He's evil and sick. The end.

  • sunni_daze

    I'm not reading the article but after following this on the news something is NOT right. This boy went to a special needs scool and does not have any criminal record. The town is 1% black where he lives and out of the blue after searching for 6 mos they find him at home 3 miles from where she was killed and he gave DNA willingly (a guilty person would not do this). I think they are just trying to close a case and pin it on anybody in this case a black child with special needs .

    Martin de porres is a school for children with mental health challenges n those kids usually have low iqs. He mostly did not know the consequences of submitting dna.

  • sunni_daze

    Yeah, but he had hate speech, video and pictures declaring his hate. He also told a friend he was gonna do it. This story doesn't sound right and the sketch of the perp looks nothing like that boy. Not to mention the news tried to link this to the jogger that was also assualted in NYC just a week before (they were that similar) and this is before a suspect was in custody. I think this boy is a scapegoat, he's mentaly slow and he's black. He meets the requirements to be set up and locked up.

  • the guest

    Howard Beach is beyond racist. It is more racist than most racist small rural towns in the south. It is inhabited by Italian Americans who aren't even mainstream white Americans. What the victim's parents are saying in public are mild in comparison to what they are calling the suspect among themselves in the neighborhood.

    Michael Griffith was murdered by a racist Italian American mob years ago in Howard Beach.

    It is understood that the level of ignorance and violent racist tendencies of Howard Beach residents is exceptional.

    The DNA links the suspect directly to the victim. But that does not condone nor excuse the historic and violent racism in Howard Beach.

    They say that rape is about power not attraction. I think that is true. However, I do think in some instances rape is about a sociopathic, socially awkward, and sexually frustrated rapist's attraction to a beautiful unobtainable victim.

    With that said, a beautiful petite young black woman vulnerable because jogging unaccompanied would have met the same tragic fate jogging past Chanel Lewis that Ms. Vetrano met. Chanel Lewis could've been a white sociopathic, socially awkward, sexually frustrated rapist and murderer.

    I do think very pretty young women need to have a heightened sense of self awareness and self protectiveness that would caution them from vulnerable activities. I'm not victim blaming, I pray for justice in the case, yet I'm a bit shocked she went jogging alone in a rural isolated location.

    Bullshyt on this whole story. This boy didn't kill that girl.
    1.The pigs here in were being pressured by the girl's family to nab someone for the murder of their daughter, who they told NOT to jog around that area.
    2.That girl could've easily defended herself against a skinny guy like him. Matter of fact, I believe the same person who committed this crime, killed Vanessa Marcotte who was from NY, visiting her mother in Massachusetts.
    3. This boy wasn't anywhere near "Howard Beach" queens, he probably DID however walk around the Canarsie pier which is located in brooklyn, Which connects long island/queens/Manhattan waters together.
    4. There was never any surveillance, or eyewitnesses stating they saw this boy at anytime. They would've chased him out had they did see him, or worse being that Howard Beach is a very racist ass community filled with Eyetalians.
    5. They are making this case out to be like the "Central Park Five" this boy being a diagnosed with austim couldn't have committed this crime, they (pigs) coerced him into saying that he did, so that the family can stop breathing down their sorry ass necks.
    6. I hope & pray the REAL culpit confesses cause it isn't this boy, plain & simple!

    Exactly. People forget about all the racist sh*t that happened in Howard Beach in the past 20 years like when a black man was beating to death by a bread delivery driver just for walking into the town. Another black man died at a diner just for ordering food. That guy would've been killed on-site if walking through that down and now I bet it's been magnified due to this story.

    And on top of it all, When I heard that she died. I was thinking who in the world was crazy enough to go into that town and rape someone.

  • Rob N. Lebron

    I'm surprise 1% of black people actually live there. I think the census is a lie. People not from NY don't really understand the history of Howard Beach that I don't even like to speak on the internet about.

  • Rob N. Lebron

    I guess you never watched "Making a Murderer"

  • sunni_daze

    I'm not familar with the town, but you are not the first to comment on the history. I just saw that the news reported 1% so the cencus maybe off.
