"Beat on the bat with a baseball bat?"
There's shock from the posh Upper East Side to the punk Lower East Side of Manhattan after the murder of former Ramones manager turned realtor-to-the-rock stars Linda Stein in her ritzy apartment on 78th Street. No sign of forced entry. No apparent robbery. And, according to the NY Post, she was clubbed to death. Random act of violence, act of passion-- or twisted clue? Whether the perpetrator was a building employee, part of a construction crew in the very secure building, stranger or acquaintance, the facts add a queasy link to the Ramones curse.
