16-Year Old Hired for ‘Violent Sex’ Confesses to Newsman George Weber Murder

March 25, 2009

(ChattahBox) — There has been a big break in what looks to be a scandalous case in the death of radio newsman George Weber whose half-naked body was found in his Brooklyn apartment on Sunday morning. Weber, whose ankles were bound with duct tape, was stabbed perhaps 50 times, in a gruesome attack. At the crime scene before the arrest, investigators said gay-porn pictures were scattered around the ransacked home, but there was no evidence of forced entry. According to NY Daily News sources said Wednesday, a 16-year-old confessed to stabbing the WABC newsman during a drug-fueled date with the older man.

Detectives found the suspect by tracing Weber’s cell phone and Internet activity, the Newspapers sources said. The unidentified teenager reportedly confessed to police that he had answered an ad Weber placed on craigslist, looking for a partner in rough sex, police and law enforcements sources said. Sources told the paper that Weber often hooked up with men he met on Craigslist.

Police believe Weber fought back as blood was found in the bedroom and bathtub drain believed to be the assailants. Weber, who would have turned 48 Monday, had previously been known to New Yorkers as the voice of a number of WABC-AM newscasts, including the now-defunct morning show hosted by Curtis Sliwa and Ron Kuby. Weber was laid off more than a year ago in a cost-cutting move, he wrote on his blog.
