Last week I wrote about Miguel Ángel Salgado Pimentel, murdered the same day he won custody of his daughter. Miguel Ángel, sad is to say, has many brothers around the world. Brothers like Daniel Malakov.
Daniel, born in the former Soviet Republic of Uzbekistan, thirty-four years old, Ivy League-trained orthodontist, lived in Queens, New York.
Daniel, after a nasty divorce from the woman he was married for six years, Marina Borukhova, a doctor at North Shore University Hospital, and a brutal custody battle, won custody of his only child, his four years old daughter Michelleka.
Daniel, just before 11:00 AM of October 28 of 2007, was shot three times in the chest in front of his daughter, at the Annadale Playground, the Flushing Meadows Park, where he was meeting his ex-wife to hand the little girl off for a visit.
After Daniel was murdered, Michelleka was taken into custody by the Administration for Children's Services.
When Daniel won custody of his daughter, he was extremely happy; he made a big room for her, he bought new clothes and was committed to give her all the education she wanted.
When Daniel won custody of his daughter, Borukhova paid $20,000 to Mazoltov Borukhova and Mikhail Mallayev to shoot Daniel. On April 21 of 2009, the three of them were sentenced to life without parole for first-degree murder, with an additional 8 1/3 to 25 years for conspiracy in the second degree
Although Daniel always complained that Borukhova obstructed his visitation rights while she had the custody of the child, when he won custody he regretted that things happened the way they did. Always concerned for his daughter's well-being, he told his mother: “A daughter should have a father and a mother in her life. She (Michelleka) shouldn’t have to go through this.”
On the very day of his murder, Daniel invited Borukhova to spend time together as a family. They agreed to meet at the Queens’ park where he was murdered.
