Former homeless man leaves pizza at scenes of Chinatown murders

CHINATOWN, Manhattan (WABC) -- Hakki Akdeniz wept as he left candles, flowers, and pizza at a crime scene in Chinatown where four people were killed early Saturday morning.

Akdeniz, who owns a pizza shop was once homeless himself, and never turns away the hungry.

Now, Akdeniz was feeding the victims posthumously.

"We should love them, we should care for them," Akdeniz says.

The victims were bludgeoned as they slept on the street. Their ages range from 48 to 83.
