Text messages reveal what Nguyen knew
Rochester, N.Y. After news reports of a fatal ambush on December 24, prosecutors say Dawn Nguyen had a text message exchange with friend and fellow poker player, Scott Szatkowski.
Szatkowski reached out to her and she responded: I understand. Ive been doing bad alsowe were really close to the killer. He was at my house three weeks ago.
Did you know anything of why he shot his grandmother before? Did you think he could kill again? Szatkowski said in a text message to Nguyen.
He cant kill again because hes dead, but yes, we knew he was going to kill his sister, Nguyen said in a text message.
Nguyen is not charged with the Christmas Eve ambush that killed two firefighters and injured two others.
Prosecutors say the texts exchanged between Nguyen and Szatkowski show that she knew the shooter well, William Spengler, and that he had a felony record.
Prosecutors say Spangler paid Nguyen to purchase the guns he used in the deadly attack.
Judge Tom Moran ruled that three other text messages were not relevant and the jury would not be allowed to hear them.
