Juan Fresnada was walking in the Bronx with his husband, Bayron Caceras, on Christmas Eve when six men approached and demanded money. When the pair refused, ABC News reports that the men attacked, knocking Fresnada to the ground and beating him badly before making off with all of one dollar. Caceras refused treatment at the scene, but Fresnada, 60, died of his injuries on Friday. Police have made no arrests in the attack. "They killed my husband and if they killed him they might kill someone else and I don't want anybody else to have the pain that I'm going through," Caceras tells PIX11. (Read more murder stories.)
