Body of Leatherman Found


A reader sent us this story yesterday, but it was far too late to post it. So, we’re doing it now.

The body of a leather-loving man was found on Hudson Street here in NYC. The story describes the man as wearing “…a leather mask, leather clothing and two collars…”

For those of you who don’t know, Hudson Street runs perpendicular to the legendary Christopher Street, where dozens of homos of all varieties gather nightly.

While the coppers have no leads and an official cause of death has yet to be determined, it seems to us that this is a case of murder. Why? “Police said he was slumped over, with one of the collars hooked on the spike of a 4-foot fence.”

Not surprisingly, the article’s pretty short, and while it’s doubtful there’ll be much coverage of this in the mainstream news, we’ll certainly try to find out anything we can. We’ve always wanted to be Nancy Drew.
