*if you knew Alex Henriquez please send me an email so that I can expand this list
Here is a story that was sent to me.
Hi, My Mother used to keep a horse at Van Cortland stable in Riverdale, NY. I knew Alex Henriquez briefly before he went to jail. While I had no idea who he really was, my brief encounter made me very wary of him. He owned a horse named Trouble, and I met him when he approached me to exercise his horse for him. I had been riding since i was very young, and also taught riding lessons. Trouble was a handful for Alex, so I agreed to help him out and ride Trouble occasionally.
He was always dressed neatly, and clean. But he owed my boyfriend money for work done on his horses stall. He always came to the stable with a different mode of transportation. One morning he approached my boyfriend and I with a yellow manila envelope with the handwritten word "confidential" on it. He claimed it contained his orders to go to Desert Storm.
He claimed he was in the special forces, and that he would be deployed on a mission in a couple of weeks. He wanted to show us his "confidential" orders, but we declined. When he left us, I expressed my disbelief to my boyfriend. I grew up with a military father. He had been in the Army, and was still in the reserves. Alex was not a military man, let alone special forces. He did not have the physique for special forces. And orders are not presented in a manila envelope with handwritten confidential on it. It seemed as if he wanted to prove something to us.
But he was absent for a couple of weeks, then reappeared. I was shocked to see him again. When I asked him what he was doing back home, he claimed that he was on a mission so dangerous, that they sent him home for a couple of weeks to say goodbye to his family. Yeah, right. I stayed away from him after that. Shortly after he was arrested for another crime and then it all came out. Some of the people from the stable were asked to testify in his trial. Just thought you'd be interested in some anecdotes supporting his "character." Best,
