From Steve Krauchick, Doing It Local:
DoingItLocal.com learned that the Keystone Club on Barnum Avenue was visited by the Bridgeport Police and Fire Department the night before the homicide of Nyair Nixon. What they found was smoking inside that set off the alarm in the establishment along with drinking and prostitution according to numerous witnesses. Neither the police, fire or health department acted upon their findings. Councilwoman Eneida Martinez manages the Keystone Club and was recently arrested for eleven counts of illegal liquor sales and reckless endangerment the night of Nylair’s homicide on September 27, 2020.
Today (Oct. 9) Nyair’s father Charles Nixon went to the Bridgeport Fire Department on Congress Street to obtain a copy of the report of the fire department’s visit to the club night before his son’s homicide. He waited over forty-five minutes and then called councilwoman Maria Pereria for assistance. She learned that the public record now requires a Freedom Of Information report at the city attorney’s office. Pereria armed with the statute which she read to Fire Chief Thode. Pereria said the report should be as easy as obtaining an accident report at the police department. Thode had been directed by the city attorney’s office that a Freedom of Information report needs to be filed at the city attorney’s office.
