CRIME OF PASSION

Gay Brooklyn Couple Die In Bizarre Murder-Suicide

A Brooklyn man shot his boyfriend and then himself on Tuesday, reports the Daily News, killing both.

Jason Lopez, 22, of East New York, found boyfriend Tony Curtis, 23, in their apartment with an unidentified man. And in what the News called “a love triangle turned fatal” (ya gotta love their way with words), Lopez killed Curtis while the third man hid in the closet. Then Lopez turned the gun on himself.

The terrified survivor then fled the apartment, witnesses said.

“He came out from the house screaming,” said a witness. “He said, ‘My best friend got shot and the guy killed himself.’

He said, ‘My boyfriend!’ Then he fainted.

We might never get to the bottom of this: Relatives of Curtis told the News he wasn’t gay or relationship with Lopez.
