Weber Murderer John Katehis In It for the Fame, Cash


What do all briefly famous people want in exchange for their life stories? Cash. Even murderers.

Like John Katehis, the confessed killer of former WABC radio anchor George Weber. He’s willing to tell all to the right media outlet, so long as the price is right. Stashed away at the city’s psych ward Bellevue, the New York Post tried getting the 16-year-old to provide other sickening details to the grisly murder, but it was Katehis who “greedily” wanted to be paid. That Katehis has always been in it for the money, of course, is no surprise.

Wearing a light green jumpsuit and a menacing scowl on his face, Katehis again made clear there was only one way he’d spill the beans.

“Is this a cash offer?” snarled Katehis. “Cash offers only!”

Once it became clear no money would be exchanged, Katehis shot up and yelled again, “cash offers only!” and stormed out.

Sources have said the knife-loving Queens teen confessed to savagely stabbing Weber March 20 in the ABC News radioman’s Brooklyn apartment, where he went in response to a Craigslist ad offering $80 in exchange for kinky sex.

A few days later, Katehis’s dad lured him to an upstate rendezvous with detectives by promising to give him $300.

    Let me tell ALL of you ignorant people something. John did not kill this guy for fame or money, He was assaulted by this freak. given cocaine, & vodka. he is not selling his story to the highest bidder for the reason that you think. yes he will probably “sell” his side of the story. but its only to pay for his legal bills. his dad was let go from work due to the unwanted attention the business where he worked was getting. His father loves his son very much so no he was no a serial killer in the making. but has no other way to pay his son’s legal bills. I am not saying what should happen with johnny one way or anouther. But try not to forget he is only 16. he was given drugs & he has no history of drug use!. so he acts like a tuff guy on myspace. what 16 boy doesn’t? & his dad did not lure his son with money because that was the only thing the boy responds to. he knew his son was scared, & that the best thing to do was help bring him in safley.
