Forest Hills victim likely killed by internet date

From the Daily News:

Michael Pecora's nude body was found in his Forest Hills apartment late Wednesday, hours after his sister called his cell phone only to have a stranger answer, the sources said.

The man with Pecora's cell phone was a cab driver, who told the sister he was given the phone earlier in the week by a passenger who said he didn't have any money to pay the fare, sources said.

The passenger gave the cab driver the phone and a watch as payment when he was dropped off in the Bronx.

Pecora's laptop was missing and the cabbie remembered that the suspicious fare was carrying what resembled a computer. That fueled investigators' belief that the killer met Pecora on the Internet and was trying to cover his tracks, sources said.

Bit of a bad reflection on this blog that the comment above has been left up there for all to see and confirm certain suspicions about many commenters on here.

That comment was made at 3:59 and you commented at 4:15.

Do you think I am sitting here all day and night watching comments come in, moron?

The commenter above crappy posted that nonsense so he could then write about how bad the blog is for allowing it.

Go ahead, deny it. We know the tricks, pal. It's called trying to destroy credibility and it's a bogus attempt. Why?

Gothamist, Curbed, etc. allow all those types of comments without moderation. You need to write to the blog owner if you find a comment offensive in order to have it removed and then it may or may not happen. So why would you hold Crapper to a higher standard?

Oh, that's right, because you don't agree with this blog, yet can't resist coming here and commenting. Get a life.

I don't care what some sick creature said about Gays, but I am happy that this blog exists to post the latest moves of this weirdo killer.

I hope that the information keeps some people alive and thwarts his malevolent plans.
