Daniel Pazienza Port Jefferson NY
Daniel Pazienza of Port Jefferson, New York is accused of murdering Broadway vocal coach Barbara Maier Gustern during an attack that left her with severe head trauma. Police believe he pushed her from behind while she was walking outside her Chelsea apartment on March 10th; as a result she fell to the ground and later passed away at Bellevue Hospital in New York.
What is his background?
Daniel is a cesspool operator from Port Jefferson, Long Island. He works for a private firm that cleans sewers in residential neighborhoods and also belongs to the Holtsville Fire Department, according to local media outlets.
Are Daniel Pazienza active on social media?
Absolutely. With over 104,000 followers on Instagram, Daniel has amassed an impressive following. Additionally, he’s a proud member of the Long Island Firemen’s Association and has served his fire department for almost 50 years.
His parents are Daniel and Caroline Pazienza, a married couple who have been together for 28 years. Together they have four children – including daughter Lauren – whom they have raised as a single parent.
Daniel and Naveen M. Pereira have lived in New York since 2005, currently residing in Astoria, Queens where Daniel works for a company that cleans sewers. Documents show they recently purchased a condo together with their son Naveen M. Pereira as part of a property settlement.
On Friday, Karen Charrington, a former Bronx County assistant district attorney, advised The Post that Lauren Pazienza and her parents could face legal charges if prosecutors can establish they provided criminal assistance to their daughter after the alleged assault. To convict them, Charrington said, the state must show they “provided criminal assistance” after the alleged assault.
According to the legal expert, prosecutors could use Pazienza’s conscious of guilt as evidence in support of their case against her. They might claim she was scared after the incident and never intended to kill Gustern.
On Thursday in Manhattan, Pazienza’s parents left the courtroom without speaking to reporters after her bail was set at $500,000 cash or $1 million if it is secured or paid by an insurance company.
She has not posted bond yet, and her parents are reportedly making plans to secure it as soon as possible.
According to a legal expert, if both prosecution and defense experts concur that she was intoxicated at the time of her alleged assault, that could be beneficial in plea negotiations to settle without going to trial. Furthermore, if they both agree she suffered mental issues at the time of the attack, that could also be helpful during plea negotiations, according to prosecution and defense sources.

Daniel is 50 years old and from Port Jefferson NY. He owns a cesspool business that cleans sewers in residential areas, as well as having over 10,000 followers on Instagram.
