According to Newspapers.com archives, Albert Garland was shot and killed while closing his poultry market business. The business was located on New York's Lower East Side at the address of 207 Delancey Street. At the time of the murder, detectives were investigating whether this was a robbery gone bad.
Since then, no publicized leads have been developed in this case. The only article online I could find was from August 23, 1983, one day after the murder.
Based on crime location, it is advised to contact the NYPD Crime Stoppers Division at 800-577-TIPS if you have any information on Albert Garland's murder.

--- Thoughts? As of today, September 25, 2019, Albert Garland is still listed as one of Project: Cold Case's "Faces of Unsolved Homicides" victims. He is specifically case #616.
Since the only article I could find was one day after Albert was killed, it isn't clear if detectives ever identified a potential suspect or even a description of the killer. 36 years is a very long time after a murder, but hopefully someone with information is still alive that can help close this case.
As saddens as I am by the Abe Lebewohl case (the owner of the 2nd Ave Deli whose case is sadly still unsolved), Albert Garland deserves more publicity as well- similar case but hardly any press.
We’re not finished here and are still looking to solve with help anywhere we can get it-whatever it takes!
Hi dj, I saw you logged on the other day and it made me realized we haven't discussed your case in a while, so to make up for that, I'm making it case of the week on the main page of the forum (Nov. 19th-25th), so hopefully that will drum up a little more attention.

UPDATE: we will never close this case; suspected shooter is dead and accomplice can’t be positively identified. Special thanks to ADA Olivo and Det Hanna who dedicated time and energy to bring us closure this many years later. NYPD let us down 40 years ago and that’s it
Thanks for your thoughts; it was supposedly one of the staff that me and my brother worked with! He was fired for stealing weeks before and given another chance and re-hired. NYPD didn’t do us right and unfortunately, a very low profile hard working guy without fame or fortune killed without justice. It sucks and appreciate your holding on for us. Best to you and yours!
