8 Of 9 NYC Gay Bashing Suspects Apprehended, None Showing Remorse

Elmer Confresi, 23, turned himself into police becoming the eighth of nine suspects apprehended in New York City’s brutal gay bashing attack against two teens and one adult that involved sodomy with a broom handle, lit cigarettes to the nipple, and a box cutter. Ruddy Vargas-Perez, 22 (pictured), remains at large. Says NYPD Police Commissioner Ray Kelly: “The seven individuals that we have in custody initially, there’s an eighth one now, have made statements, video confessions or statements concerning their acts involving this case, but I wouldn’t characterize it as remorse.”
