New and not-very-surprising developments in the gruesome case of a gay man found brutally stabbed to death in his New York City apartment by a man he met on the Internet. Alexys Fermaintt, the 30-year-old hustler accused of robbing and killing Michael Pecora, pleads self-defense and claims the victim attacked him with a knife in an argument over Fermaintt's escort fee.
Fermaintt tells police the victim "disagreed over the amount of money [he] was going to pay Fermaintt for sex and for spending the day with him."
Pecora was killed on June 17th in his Queens apartment. A stolen cell phone given to a cab driver to pay for a fare lead police to Fermaintt's Brionx apartment. Fermaintt was tracked to Massachusetts and authorities extradited him to New York City. He faces second degree murder charges.
Last week, Rod 2.0 posted an amateur sex video (NSFW) featuring Fermaintt and three other men—all of whom are engaging in risky sex and smoking what appears to be crystal meth. Joe.My.God's Joe Jervis located Fermaintt's MySpace and YouTube accounts under the screen name Rican2Crave.
