Lorenzo “Fat Cat” Nichols was once a notorious New York City drug lord. In December 1987, he thought Horsham, his 20-year-old girlfriend, was stealing from him. She was thought to be taking cash out of a stash he had in her Queens apartment.
Back in the 80s, at the age of 29, Fat Cat Nichols had both the sway and the power to handle situations like these, without getting his hands dirty. When he thought it was time for Horsham to be murdered, he simply called on Brian “Glaze” Gibbs, his top lieutenant.
“He ordered up murders like Chinese takeout.”
Fast forward 30 years, now Brian “Glaze” Gibbs is seeking redemption for the decade’s worth of body trails he left throughout Queens and Brooklyn as a lieutenant to Fat Cat.
Gibbs, the former crack cocaine king pen is now attempting to make amends with the families of the victims he murdered. This comes after he plead guilty to various crimes, including murders and attempted murders.
The New York Daily News continues:
Gibbs — as the Daily News detailed Sunday — pleaded guilty to either arranging or committing five murders and two attempted murders between 1985 and 1988 during his time as a Brooklyn drug lord and a top lieutenant with Queens drug kingpin Lorenzo (Fat Cat) Nichols.
“I wish I could turn back the hands of time, and I know it’s going to be hard for a lot of people to understand, but I want to make amends and redeem myself,” said Gibbs, 53.
He’s living in the South under an assumed name after flipping on the murderous crew and spending time in prison and the witness protection program.
“I would like to meet with them,” he says of his victims’ relatives, “or tell them I am not the person now who I was then.”
But after 30 years, the wounds he and his crew inflicted on the relatives remain profoundly raw — as if the deaths just happened yesterday.
