Not that there is ever a reason to murder somebody, but it looks like the Post left out some pieces of the story (that I found in the Daily News) and these two knew each other?

The victim, 34, and the suspect were engaging in sexual activity on a southbound No. 2 train and began feuding, said multiple law enforcement sources.

The train conductor ejected both men from the train at the W. 96th St. and Broadway station at about 2 a.m., and the train operator used his horn to alert police, said the sources.

As the fight heated up, Andre Boyce, 28, put the other man in a headlock and hurled him to the No. 1 train tracks, said law enforcement sources. The victim hit his head as he fell.

Police sources said Boyce and the victim were both homeless. Boyce has four prior arrests, and is on parole in a robbery case, said police sources and public records.

They did a heck of a supervision job.

All these posts about keeping away from the tracks are nice and all, but they're deflecting from the real issue... a man was murdered by someone who probably should not have been free to murder people.

I don’t understand why they put the name in the headline. Am I supposed to know Andre Boyce?

I remember when I worked on 3rd Avenue in the mid 80s and would catch the E/​F at 53rd St. Crowds of people quite literally packed until the edge of the platform as the train comes whizzing in.
