When former soldier and drug addict David Laffer walked into a Long Island pharmacy on Father’s Day 2011, prosecutors say he intended to rob the store for prescription painkillers to feed his addiction.
In the process, Laffer fatally shot the pharmacist, a 17-year-old clerk and two shoppers who tragically walked in on the hold-up – making it one of the worst mass killings in Long Island history.
Now for the first time, Crime Files speaks to Laffer about the pharmacy slayings in his first sit-down interview since the deadly incident.
