A married former Washington Post vice president has been found dead in a gay bar in Manhattan with drug paraphernalia near his body.
Guyon Knight was found dead around 8am on Saturday in a bar called the Out in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of New York.
The New York Post reported the circumstances of the 64-year-old's death, saying that he was seen with a needle, a pipe and unspecified pills near his body.
The club where Knight was found describes itself as being gay-but-straight friendly, but a person familiar with the bar told MailOnline that it is mostly frequented by gay patrons.
'It would be pretty darn strange to see and old straight guy partying in there,' the source said.
The 42nd Street location, where Mr Knight was found at around 8am on Saturday, has a bar, a spa and hotel rooms.

A former vice president of The Washington Post was found dead on the floor at a Hells Kitchen hot spot, surrounded by a needle, a pipe and pills, sources said.
Guyon Knight, 64, who served as vice president for corporate communications, collapsed around 8 a.m., Saturday outside a room where a party was being held at the Out, according to the sources.
The venue, on West 42nd Street, boasts a gay-but-straight-friendly spa, hotel and clubs.
Cops and medics responded after a 911 caller reported a man unconscious, possibly due to drug use.
Sounds like a set-up. The medical examiner will no doubt wait 5-days to do an autopsy.
Meaning: we don't care what comes out of the glory-hole. Its all good!
Why does “married” lead the headline description? If he was married to a woman, are the presstitutes trying to denigrate natural marriage?
Just remember, NEWSPAPERS KILL!
Guyon and his wife, Linda, have a son who lives in Detroit.
I’m ignorant of the gay scene, but, this gay bar had hotel rooms? Is it common for a bar to have hotel rooms?
“Guyon and his wife, Linda, have a son...”
So did Rev. Gene Robinson.
Hell’s bacteria-frappe hot tub?
He’s ‘Out’ alright.
Some people wonder why the news media seems obsessed with homosexuality.
A certain type of bar and hotel rooms that charge by the hour, yes.
