07/16/2010 DeFarra Gaymon was shot to death in Newark’s Branch Brook Park on July 16, 2010.The killing occurred in Newark’s Branch Brook Park on July 16, 2010. In 2011, an Essex County grand jury declined to indict Esposito on any criminal charges. The Gaymon family sued Esposito, the county, the sheriff’s office, and two senior officers in that office in 2011. The amended complaint names additional sheriff’s officers. In a 2011 statement, the Essex County prosecutor’s office said the chase led to the pond, with Gaymon repeatedly threatening Esposito, and that Gaymon “then lunged at and attempted to disarm the officer while reaching into his own pocket. Fearing for his life, the officer discharged his service weapon, hitting Mr. Gaymon once.” Esposito and his partner were in plainclothes and conducting a public sex sting. Just prior to the shooting, they fought with another man and Esposito lost his handcuffs. After that first man was secured, Esposito went back into the park to retrieve his handcuffs when he encountered Gaymon, who was “who was engaged in a sex act at the time,” according to the prosecutor’s statement. Esposito is the sole witness to the killing. In 2009, Esposito was involved in three public sex arrests that also turned violent. Resisting arrest was charged in another two Esposito arrests that year. Gaymon was the head of an Atlanta credit union and was in Newark to attend his high school reunion. He was married with four children. These new facts make the circumstances of the killing murkier. None of the parties in the lawsuit responded to emails seeking an explanation or comment. The prosecutor’s office referred questions to the attorney representing the county.

As we turn over another year, I like to remember some positive things in my life. All the love, sharing, learning, teaching, and those who touched my life and helped me become a better person.
I’m not much of a writer, but I am a huge feeler. This project has moved me in so many ways this past year. What I mean, is that I got to know some of the murdered victims through my research. It is at times so depressing but I continue to record and search in hopes of some kinda end.
I’m trying to understand the human race. Can we ever?
