    Drifter Known for Menace Is Charged With Raping Woman, 73, in Central Park

    By WENDY RUDERMAN and NATE SCHWEBER

    A drifter who hailed from the South and spent most of his adult life in and out of prison on a grab bag of felonies, including kidnapping and abduction, was arrested on Thursday and charged with the rape, beating and robbery of a 73-year-old woman in Central Park.
    The suspect, David Albert Mitchell, 42, was nothing if not distinctive. His body was a canvas of dark, mythical tattoos: a grim reaper, dragons, Nordic warriors, castles and ?some kind of deadly insect,? said Paul J. Browne, the Police Department?s chief spokesman. Other tattoos included two teardrops under Mr. Mitchell?s left eye and one small teardrop below his right.
    Mr. Mitchell, a parolee from Virginia who arrived in New York City in July, found his way to Central Park, where he almost immediately inspired fear in park regulars, one of whom he threatened with a knife on Aug. 20, the authorities said.
    ?He?s a psycho,? said Ayrton dos Santos Jr., known as the mayor of Strawberry Fields, a section of the park where a memorial to John Lennon attracts throngs of tourists. ?He pulled a shank on me and said, ?I got no problem taking this knife and plugging it into you and spattering blood all over this circle in front of all these people.? ?
    Video surveillance images of the suspect were distributed by the police on Wednesday afternoon, hours after the attack on the woman, a bird-watcher who the police said had been brutalized just before noon Wednesday on a wood-chip path not far from Strawberry Fields. By nightfall, three rookie police officers patrolling the Upper West Side recognized the suspect from a grainy photograph and apprehended the man only blocks from the park.
    On Thursday, the victim, her face still swollen and bruised, picked out Mr. Mitchell in a lineup, Mr. Browne said. Prosecutors charged Mr. Mitchell with predatory sexual assault, rape, criminal sex act, robbery and criminal possession of stolen property. They also charged Mr. Mitchell, who went by Keith, with menacing in the knife-brandishing episode.
    As officers escorted Mr. Mitchell from a Special Victims Unit building on Thursday, he spit in the direction of an assemblage of news reporters.
    Early Friday morning, Mr. Mitchell was arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court and ordered held without bail.
    The heinous nature of the crime surprised New Yorkers, chilling even veteran members of law enforcement.
    ?Central Park is a well-policed precinct, with low crime,? Mr. Browne said. ?This attack, the viciousness of it, the fact that it was in broad daylight, stands out as an anomaly in many respects, including that it was the only rape in Central Park this year.?
    The police said the victim had been scanning the treetops for birds, carrying a professional camera with a zoom lens in her backpack, when Mr. Mitchell appeared. Mr. Mitchell, the woman told police, posed a calculating question: ?Do you remember me??
    The woman pretended that she did not, though she instantly recognized Mr. Mitchell as the man she photographed some nine days earlier in the forested Ramble when she caught him masturbating. In that first encounter, Mr. Mitchell ordered her to delete the image. She refused, and he tried unsuccessfully to wrest the camera away from her before she ran off. She did not report the encounter to the police, Mr. Browne said.
    On Wednesday, Mr. Mitchell threw the woman to the ground, battered her with his fists and raped her, the police said. He fled with her backpack, which contained her camera, they said.
    Mr. Browne said he did not know whether the camera that Mr. Mitchell stole was the same one she had used to photograph him. Investigators recovered the photo from the woman?s computer on Thursday, Mr. Browne said.
    The three officers, Enmanuel A. Rodriguez and Steven F. Ourelio, both 26, and Sicelin Ortiz, 23, had been on the force since January. The officers usually patrol the Washington Heights area, but on Thursday they were among those sent to the area near the park in search of the rape suspect, Mr. Browne said.
    They spotted Mr. Mitchell walking on Amsterdam Avenue, near 77th Street, where he was taken into custody.
    Mr. Mitchell had an extensive criminal history. The authorities in West Virginia charged Mr. Mitchell with murder and sexual assault in January 1989, though a year later he was found not guilty, Mr. Browne said. He spent about a decade in a West Virginia prison after he was convicted of robbery in July 1990. Soon after he was paroled in 2000, he was convicted of larceny and spent another 13 months in prison, according to the West Virginia Parole Board.
    In February 2004, he was sentenced to just over eight years in prison for abduction and kidnapping in Tazewell County, Va.

    Drug Makers Join Efforts in Research

    By Andrew Pollack
    September 19, 2012

    Ten of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies said on Wednesday that they would cooperate on research aimed at accelerating drug development, starting with streamlining clinical trials.

    Pharmaceutical companies have collaborated before on areas considered not directly competitive, like finding variants in the human genome and biomarkers to predict disease and the effectiveness of drugs. But the people behind the new effort said it would be the largest of its kind.

    "There?s never been anything like this to take on these big challenges," said Garry Neil, the interim chief executive of the new nonprofit organization, TransCelerate BioPharma, which has been formed to carry on the work.

    Mr. Neil, a former corporate vice president for science and technology at Johnson & Johnson, offered no details on the size of the effort, saying only that the budget would be in the millions of dollars.

    The pharmaceutical industry has been struggling to come up with new drugs, despite a vast increase in spending on research and development over the last decade. In the meantime, sales from many big-selling drugs are evaporating as patents expire and generic competition kicks in.

    Mr. Neil said that TransCelerate would initially take on five projects aimed at making clinical trials more efficient. Clinical trials are the most costly part of bringing a drug to market.

    One project would be to standardize the way data from clinical trials are recorded. That would make it easier for clinical trial investigators to enter data without having to remember each company?s format and to compare data from clinical trials.

    Similarly, TransCelerate will work on a common Internet portal that investigators can use to communicate with all drug companies, and also on standardizing efforts to qualify clinical trial sites and to train investigators. It will also work on a way for companies to easily procure one another?s already marketed drugs for use in comparative clinical trials.

    "We started with things we think are important and also doable," Mr. Neil said, saying the goal is to make significant progress on each project by the middle of next year. He said that TransCelerate might eventually expand to collaborations on drug discovery research.

    The 10 initial members are Abbott, AstraZeneca, Boehringer Ingelheim, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Eli Lilly, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Roche?s Genentech division, and Sanofi. The heads of research and development at these companies sit on the board of TransCelerate.

    Other companies, including smaller ones, will be able to join, Mr. Neil said.

    The companies will contribute money and personnel to work on the various projects. While TransCelerate will have a headquarters in Philadelphia, the employees from different companies will not all work together at that location, instead meeting as necessary, Mr. Neil said.

    TransCelerate said it would work with other organizations. At least two nonprofit organizations, each with pharmaceutical company participation, are already working on accelerating clinical trials and standardizing data. Just last week, those two organizations ? the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium and the Critical Path Institute ? announced that they would form the Coalition for Accelerating Standards and Therapies.

    Mr. Neil said TransCelerate had been in the formative stage for about a year and had been in discussions with regulators.

    "We applaud the companies in TransCelerate BioPharma for joining forces to address a series of longstanding challenges in new drug development," Dr. Janet Woodcock, the director of the drug division at the Food and Drug Administration, said in a statement issued by TransCelerate.
