New York Man Stabbed Roommate for Hogging the Bathroom
You ever has a roommate from hell? Many have shared their stories. Well, having a roommate who may be too loud, or perhaps has a cat that pisses all over your belongings, is nothing compared to this guy. Sadly, this story takes a very tragic turn. And according to authorities, one of the main issues that lead to all this were simple living arrangements that all roommates have to work out at some point.
The New York Daily News says that a 37-year-old suspect admitted to police that he stabbed his new roommate. What's even more gruesome about this was that the suspect even allegedly tried to make the fatal stabbing look like a suicide. The Daily News says that police found the victim Tuesday morning in the bathtub of their apartment, with a stab wound to his sternum and knife in hand. After a quick investigation, police knew the suicide has been staged, and soon the suspect confessed to the murder and botched coverup.
And this was the reason? Sources say the big issue between the two was that that suspect felt the victim spent too much time in the bathroom. There is no indication if the victim had some sort of medical issue, or if he simply spent too much time on the can playing games on his phone. The small apartment in Staten Island was used as a temporary shelter for the homeless.
