Ex-Con Suspects In Murder Of Gay Chelsea Man Arrested In Florida

The two men identified in the murder of gay Chelsea resident John Laubach were nabbed yesterday in Orlando, Florida, reports the New York Post.

Ex-cons Edwin Faulkner and Juan Carlos Martinez-Herrera are suspected of binding and gagging Laubach during a hookup that turned deadly.

Says the Post:

Laubach, 57, had known the duo for about a month before his murder, having met them at a sex-shop video parlor on Eighth Avenue, according to sources.

He had previously complained to a neighbor that one of the suspects had taken something the last time they rendezvoused, but he still let the pair into his apartment on March 2, the night he was killed…

Laubach was routinely seen bringing young men back to his pad, and there were no indications of forced entry into his home, which had been ransacked, sources said. Faulkner and Martinez-Herrera allegedly made off with the victim’s laptop and credit cards.

This story could make you think twice about your next NSA Grindr hookup. And, if you notice a hookup stealing from you—probably don’t hook up with them, ever again.

      You’re telling me that meeting up with strangers you only know through dick pics on a sleazy iPhone app can end badly?

      I think it is clear that he liked rough trade.

      That said, one needs to use common sense and be alert. Let it be a lesson to others.
      1. Never bring two guys back to your place at once, especially rough types.
      2. Never invite someone back into your home who steals from you.

      @evji108: i’d like to posit that if he was looking for someone around his own age, his “hook-up partner” would probably be less likely a criminal. Or, if he was looking for a relationship, again, there might be less likely a criminal encounter. But one never knows, I suppose.

      Stephanie Mills was quite poignant in her 1984 song, ” (Never mess around with)Rough Trade “
