Daniel Sikkema Was Bailed While Wanted for Murder of Noted Gallerist in Brazil Now Delay

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY EXCLUSIVE, March 27 – Daniel Sikkema is subject to an Interpol warrant for the murder of his estanged husband, art gallery owner Brent Sikkema, in Brazil. On March 20 Daniel Sikkema was brought by US Marshals into the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrates Court, with detention sought for passport fraud. Inner City Press was the only media there and live tweeted, thread:

 ...Defense: He hired counsel in Brazil - Judge: I don't want you to address something new. What about family members in the apartment - are they residents or citizens of the US? Defense: One is his cousin Myra. She's not a citizen.  Judge: She has a green card? No  

Defense: The others in the apartment came here with what's called humanitarian parole. 

 Judge: So I am releasing Mr. Sikeema on a $1 million personal recognizance bond, secured by the property in Queens subject to review by the government of the equity, if it is in the high 100s of 1000s of dollars. Owned by Maria L. Gomez

Judge: He can be released today on his own signature

Pre Trial: We can't put on the GPS bracelet.

Judge: So he will be held overnight, produced tomorrow

He was released - but on March 27 asked for a delay in putting up the Queens house: we have "identified a substitute property located in Manhattan to secure Mr. Sikkema’s bond, as the home we initially intended to post is unavailable." Letter on Patreon here.
