The hunt’s over for gay architecture student and bartender Carlos Rivera’s alleged killer. Canadian coppers nabbed Jesse Norman Imeson last night.
Police caught up with Mr. Imeson after a 911 call from a homeowner in Portage du Fort, a small town across the Ottawa River from Renfrew, Ont., about 100 kilometres northwest of Ottawa.
“He had broken into a home and was surprised by the owner,” said Surete du Quebec Sergeant Michel Brunet.
Imeson’s apparently been on quite the crime spree since leaving Windsor Falls around July 19th, the day coppers found Rivera’s body in Imeson’s apartment.
In addition to allegedly strangling Rivera – whom Imeson met at Rivera’s workplace, Taps gay bar – Imeson reportedly went on to kill an older married couple and rob a number of homes. Quite the overachiever.
Imeson and Rivera met on July 17th at Taps, a gay bar in Windsor Falls. From what owner Eddie An says, Imeson came in looking to work as a stripper, but didn’t have the proper identification. Imeson then started chatting up Rivera and the men left together. While An suspects Imeson hasn’t yet accepted his homosexuality, Imeson’s backward buddy says otherwise:
Nick Cesljar, who took Mr. Imeson to The Tap that night, said the man thought he could make a lot of money stripping at The Tap.
“I tried to advise him against doin He was just looking at the money, I guess. He got the idea he can get more money dancing for guys rather than dancing for girls, because guys, being perverts, they’ll pay more.”
Wow, sounds like Imeson keeps great company. Hopefully he’ll make some new friends in prison…
“because guys, being perverts, theyâ€™ll pay more.”
Not to defend Mr. Cesljar, but I think he meant that men who frequent strip bars tend to be more free with their money than women. I use to work with a guy who dropped $200 a week at a straight strip club and I have a gay friend who drops $250 a week at Remington’s. Men just seem to like to throw money at naked bodies. Plus, since Canada uses coins for our $1 and $2 currencies–and quite possibly our $5 currency in the near future–strippers tend to make a good bit of money, since only bills are permitted in most clubs.
For anyone who’s curious, check out Remington’s dancers on their website:
You know, I love my country and it’s citizens, but those strippers are; shall we say, plain?
Wow, I checked out the web site for Remington’s and you are being very kind to say “plain”. I’d say plain ugly. I wouldn’t pick any of them up if they offered to pay me for sex. What a real dog and in at least one case, pony show! And almost all are “straight”? Thank goodness.
Please do SOME research before you post. There is no Windsor Falls in Ontario. The city is called Windsor. Also, the bar is not called Taps. It is called “The Tap in Windsor”. http://thetapwindsor.com
Last, Nick Cesljar actually said nothing about whether Imeson was gay, and nothing about whether Imeson had accepted it if he was.
