A homeless thug with a criminal record has been arrested in the cold-blooded murder of a 19-year-old cashier who was gunned down after handing him $100 during a robbery.

Winston Glynn, a 30-year-old Jamaican was charged with first-degree murder and robbery in the January 9 slaying of Kristal Bayron in a Burger King at East 116th Street and Lexington Avenue in Queens.

The monster shot her down as she crouched in terror by a second cash register which she tried to open to comply with his demand for more cash, but she didn’t have the key.

Glynn once worked at the same Burger King but did not know his victim. He lives at a Days Inn in Queens that has been turned into a homeless shelter.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, notoriously known for his soft-on-crime approach to law enforcement — including downgrading many felony charges and eliminating prison time for most crimes — was at Glynn’s arraignment, but made no comment.

NYPD detectives who nailed Glynn through painstaking police work hope he won’t go soft on this killer.

New York City’s new Mayor Eric Adams, who campaigned on a law-and-order platform, was moved when he visited Kristal’s mother after the slaying.

“When I visited her mother, I saw the pain on the face, how much this tore her apart,” he said, calling the suspect a “cold-blooded killer.”

Kristal worked the night shift at the East Harlem Burger King and told her mother before going to work that night that she was afraid because of all the homeless people who hang around the fast-food joint.

Beautiful teen cashier gunned down for a lousy $100



A 19-year-old night shift cashier who had just started working at a Manhattan Burger King was shot dead early Sunday for $100 in change.

Kristal Bayron had only been working at the fast food joint at 116th Street and Lexington Avenue in East Harlem for three weeks and already wanted off the late shift.

She told her mother she was scared to go to work that night because of all the homeless people sleeping in front of the shop.

“I don’t want to go. I’m scared,” her mother said Kristal told her.

“You have to go,” the mother said. “You have to be responsible. You have to get a better life.”

Kristal left for work at 10 p.m.

At 1 a.m., an armed robber dressed all in black entered the Burger King, pistol-whipped a male customer and punched the 60-year-old female manager in the face, police said.

A terrified Kristal gave him cash from the register and the thug turned to leave.

But suddenly and without reason, the monster turned around and shot her in the stomach. Kristal was rushed to Metropolitan Hospital.

Kristal died in hospital a short time later.

A young admirer who stopped by the restaurant every night and gave Kristal a flower was in the shop when she was killed. 

“She’d done everything that he say,” he told police. “She give him the money and everything.”

Teen cashier murdered for $100

Kristal’s mother now has to live with the guilt of insisting her daughter go to work that night “to get a better life.”

All Kristal got was death — and for a lousy 100 bucks.
