Ramones curse murder: Latin lovers off the hook?
The New York Post reports that “cops apparently don’t have any suspects” in the Linda Stein murder case. The paper reports that police have apparently ruled out Stein's former lover, Francisco Arena, 65, and her fired 49-year-old office underling Raul Diaz-Bernal, because neither man appears on the security videotape of her building on the day she was killed.
The Post says that the former Ramones manager “was repeatedly smashed in the head and neck with a weapon with a jagged edge, suggesting… a crime of passion.”
It mentions that her body, “lying in a pool of blood, was found in the living room of her 18th-floor apartment by her filmmaker daughter, Mandy, 32.”
And the Post points out that “despite her grief, Mandy, who has climbed mountains and plays hockey, ran in yesterday's New York City marathon,” and “completed the 26.2-mile course in six hours, one minute and 17 seconds.”
