Elvis fans will recognize Gabe from interviewing Elvis Presley. But for those of us in the NYC area, Gabe was part of our daily life. He was a journalist and today we don't have many of those. Gabe Pressman was someone I grew up watching, a name I trusted, and a person I respected. I last saw him cover the St. Patrick's Day Parade. He is a NY staple, a gem, a true journalist we will never see again. GODSPEED. Pressman died at Mount Sinai Hospital Manhattan on June 23, 2017, aged 93. Pressman amassed many awards for his work, including multiple Emmys and a Peabody Award. He won many of those awards for his coverage of the plight of New York City's homeless population. 11 Emmy Awards 1958: George Polk Award for Television Reporting 1981: Lincoln University's Unity award for "Blacks and the Mayor: How Far Apart?" 1982: New York Press Club's Feature Award for "The Homeless" 1982: New York State Associated Press Broadcasters As

LAS VEGAS - Friends and family of a well-known Elvis tribute artist are hoping detectives will finally be able to close a double homicide case from 1993 . So far, the murders of Dana Mackay and Mary Huffman haven't produced any arrests. The homicides of Mackay, an Elvis performer, and Huffman, a former beauty queen, made national headlines as police explored several possible motives for what looked like a professional hit. MacKay looked like Elvis, sang like Elvis and was widely regarded as the best Elvi of his era. He was the first Elvis tribute artist hired by the long-running "Legends in Concert" show on the Strip, and often took his act on the road, even to other countries. He also played Elvis at age 35 in the film, This Is Elvis. Have a tip? Contact 702-828-3521 Homicide@lvmpd.com
