Alpo Martinez murder in NYC leaves son fearing for his safety

The grisly weekend rubout of a Harlem crime kingpin-turned-informant continued to reverberate Monday, with the victim’s grieving son searching for answers and fearing for his own safety.

No arrests have been made in the bloody shooting of Alberto “Alpo” Martinez, a notorious New York City drug lord, who went from ruling an East Coast empire to cooperating with federal authorities to save his own skin.

Martinez, 55, went into protective custody following his release from federal prison on murder charges thanks to serving as a government witness. But if federal authorities couldn’t keep Martinez from a killer’s clutches, his son, Randy Harvey, wonders what chance he has of staying safe.

“It was like a student and a teacher, you know?” Harvey told the Daily News of his relationship with his father. “The stuff that he wanted to teach me when I was little, but he wasn’t there. He told me how to be safe. It’s making me wonder, am I really safe? He’s a prime example of someone who went into protective custody, changed his name and everything and it still caught up with him. There’s still no way to really be safe. He was so big. I don’t even know who hates him.”

Harvey did not grow up knowing his father, and the two only began a relationship years later when a DNA test confirmed the connection. Harvey had long suspected Martinez was his father, especially when he was targeted by other inmates during his own prison stint, including a time he was cut by an inmate he didn’t even know.
