They apparently met through a Craigslist ad for violent sex and the young man says he stabbed Weber in his Brooklyn apartment Friday night during a violent, drug-fueled assault. The Daily News says police got on the trail by looking through Webers home computer and cellphone records. Investigators believe George was killed Friday night, the victim of knife wounds all over his body. He had most recently been doing weekend anchor work for ABC News Radio, and before that had spent most of a decade at WABC, New York (770). WABC PD Laurie Cantillo says there may be a memorial service in the city. The family is planning services back in his native Pennsylvania, where he started in radio at age 16. The family says we are devastated by the loss of George Jordy, to us. He was truly a caring person who loved and was loved by all he met.
Sounds to me like he was into raping underage boys. I'm sure there are many places where 16 is below the consent age.
Those zany whacky sodomites - they sure are normal.
Wow! Will some thrillseekers learn a lesson from this?
Don’t pick up crazy strays from CraigsList or at your neighborhood bar!
Condolences to this poor man’s family.
Loneliness drives people to do weird and risky things.
I yahoo-ed “Allentown PA newspaper” and did find this article
>>NEW YORK - Police have arrested a teenager in the brutal slaying of veteran radio news reporter George Weber.
New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne says the 16-year-old from Queens was taken into custody late Tuesday night in Middletown, N.Y. He was arrested Wednesday and will be charged as an adult.
>>Weber worked at WAEB-AM in Allentown from 1983 to 1985.
>>Browne says the suspect “made statements implicating himself in the homicide.” The victim apparently allowed the teen into his Brooklyn home after they met through Craigslist.
Weber’s body was found Sunday. His ankles were bound, and he was stabbed about 50 times.
>>In addition to his work in Allentown, Weber worked at WABC in New York for 12 years as the on-air reporter for popular shows such as “Curtis and Kuby.” He also had worked at stations in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver and Pennsylvania
Such a weird story. I am not familiar with this man but read numerous good comments and positive remarks about him in the local New York articles. I guess you never know who has a dark side. When he found out the kid was 16, he should have bolted out of there — unless he knew and didn’t care, I guess.
Was it known that he had this “side” to him or is this a shock to local NYC’ers?
An obvious question.....where was the kid's parents....did they wonder about his 'knife' collection and plethora of Satanic paraphernalia and T-shirts?
any chance we can set this guy up with bawney fwank-they’d make a cute couple
Wonder if Hannity or Sliwa will mention the murder details on their shows today....
Yeah, he doesn’t look (or act) the way he sounds. He sounded like a genial old man.
Yeah, that was my first thought. Doesn’t this kid have parents? How easy is it for a 16-yr-old boy to hide his knife collection, absinthe, and S&M gay porn lifestyle from his folks? Scary...
Where’s the outrage? Let’s confiscate all the knives. So much less violence then.
I think it’s a perfect analogy.....along with getting reamed by the Marxists via higher taxes and trillion-dollar “”bailouts”” for their crooked compadres.
I visualize us, tax-payers and conservatives, getting screwed both ways and simultaneously from these commie criminals.
I think it’s time we give them a “thrill” for a change. Reciprocity, and all that.
Sheesh, life imitating art? “Is this as good as it gets?”
You mean the Rod Stewart song? Yeah, I think the lyrics had something like “a switchblade knife, he did not mean to take his life, he just pushed his luck a little too far”
I know it's wrong to laugh at that. I mean, a guy is dead after all....but, but, but that is freakin' hysterical.
Absinthe, Nothing like a little wormwood and fennel distilled to get you in the mood.
I wonder if his lawyers will try and use the old French myth to get him off on an insanity plea?
Does NY have a death penalty? We’ll see if this “Satanist”
16 yr old gets to meet his idol...
When I read the first story about his violet death I looked up his picture and immediately my gay radar went on.
