Two Defendants In Eddie Polec Case Up For Parole This Month

prison_1Two of seven suburban youths convicted of killing a Northeast Philadelphia teenager in a baseball bat attack 16 years ago are up for parole this month. They are 33-year-old Anthony Rienzi, formerly of Warminster, and 32-year-old Nick Pinero, formerly of Abington.  They and five other teenagers were convicted of third degree murder for beating 16-year-old Eddie Polec to death in the Fox Chase section of the city.  Several carloads of suburban teens rolled into Fox Chase in November of 1994 and attacked another group of teens outside a McDonald’s on Oxford Avenue.  As Eddie split from the group and ran away, the other teens chased him and beat him to death on the front steps of Saint Cecelia’s Church on Rhawn Street, where he had once served as an altar boy.  Rienzi and Pinero will spend the next 15 years on parole.  During that time they are barred from having any contact with co-defendants or the Polec family.  They cannot live in Fox Chase or go there, and they must not possess or consume any alcohol.  Four of the other five defendants have already been released and the last one, 34-year-old Thomas Crook, formerly of Upper Moreland, is up for release in January.
