I was wondering what was going on for the last month or so. I *just* started seeing him and he was fun. He always had a minute to chat online with me.

 

I know you can't give us a link, but can you give us details of what happened? Was it an unfortunate series of events? An accident? An illness?

This story is in the Washington Blade this week. Ran in the Washington Post a week or so a go. And was in the New York Post just under two weeks ago. It was also covered by the local NBC and Fox newscasts.

 

In short, two mysterious deaths occurred in the same guy's apartment in DC one week apart. The DC cops are investigating in their usual ineffective manner. The individual in question was in the morgue for over a week before being identified. And that happened due to this insistence of his friends in NYC.

 

The occupant of the apartment is being questioned by the DC cops but has not revealed much as to why two people would die in his apartment one week apart. As usual the location is rumored to have been a hang out for sex and drug parties but that is unconfirmed speculation. A friend of one of the deceased claims he was not a drug user.

 

I am sure this will now stir controversy but since this story appears in two major newspapers and a major Gay publication, I don't think there's much left to protect from the public here.

So Sorry to hear of Big Red's death

 

I had just recently reccomended him to another poster. We never got

 

to meet due to scheduling conflicts. But I thought he was personable

 

and someone who was professional in his contacts and was

 

someone who seemed to care about his clients and had a sense of

 

humor.

 

A sad and senseless Loss

 

Peace Be With You Big Red

lucky...please don't distort my motives...i was one of his clients and just wanted to say something nice about him here ...where else can i acknowledge his loss?...i wasn't trying to be mysterious or play the 'insider'...to post a link to the articles mentioned above would reveal his identity...i really didn't think it would be okay to out him as an escort,... although i know he wasn't ashamed and he enjoyed his macho Big Red escort roleplay, ......i thought his other clients might want to know and light a verbal candle here

Your concern seems to have been misguided given what followed. The info was all over the news and your reticence unnnecessary. It has happened more than once that someone wants to post something but feels a need to hold back the real details for whatever reason.

Here you had the chance to post the Blade article, which would have removed the mysteriousness from the post, and then deleted the real name of the escort before you posted. That would have satisfied most people's curiosity.

 

Nonetheless, it was your choice how to do the post. But like any other post, if you leave questions open, people are going to want to know.

I would have to agree with Lucky. Dean's obit ran in all the NYC papers, as well as well as The NY Blade and Gay City News. HX magazine and Next magazine also had blurbs of his passing. He was a well-known party fixture here in the NY club scene, so there was absolutely no reason to create any mystery concerning his passing. If you did not want to be associated as a client, there was no need to mention it.

 

Anyway, rest in peace, Dean.

I hadn't heard/read this sad news. Another blow to New York gay nightlife (not that we ever really go out, but it was nice to know that people like Dean were out there making it all happen). On a lighter note, I just read his reviews and I want to say...I never suspected there was a 9" cock hiding between the mini-dress and stiletto heels. I'm going to have to start giving those drag queens another look...

Lucky! You forgot the link to the story in the Sunday Times Style section! I knew you'd be the first to post the story.

 

A very good article on Dean's life, the mystery surrounding his death and a fitting tribute to his contributions to the NY club scene.

I hope they soon solve the mysterious circumstances surrounding Dean's passing in Washington, DC.

I also at First was surprised that his Working Name "Big Red" was only starting to come up in Reviews, fairly recently.

 

Apparently he had been a "Working Guy" for a long time in NYC.

 

BUT then again like I have said in the past. There are many Working Guy's who for whatever reason, NEVER have their Service's mentioned on this or the Old Hooboy site.

 

A Sad end indeed. R.I.P. Big Red.

Here is an article on the investigation from the Washington Post. I certainly hope that the circumstances related to this situation can be solved. However, the DC police are....well...not exactly effective. There are several gay related deaths that still remain unsolved here.

It is a pretty fascinating case. Toxicology tests will take a while, and even then they won't be conclusive. You can't show whether the victims just took more than they could handle or whether they were poisoned. The circumstance of both dying certainly leans against accidental death, but beyond a reasonable doubt? I wonder if this Saleh guy has a record, or whether others who were drugged come forward.

 

Given the press attention, the DC police won't be able to shove it under a rug.

The circumstances are strange to say the least and worthy of a mystery novel. However, there are more than a few gay related cases in DC with heavy press attention that the DC police have not resolved. Here's one that's over a year old and rivals this current case for strange circumstances.
