Mr. Figueroa placed a Statue of Mary and a keepsake box at the memorial for his son at 121 Second Avenue in the East Village, the site of the gas explosion and fire which killed his son. We helped him by passing materials through the fence. We were heartbroken as we spoke with Nicholas' mother who told us that she was glad that we were documenting the moment as she didn't want anyone to forget the tragedy. Their emotions of anger and loss are still understandably very raw and intense. She told us to this date, that no charges have yet been filed in her son's death.
