Teen Confesses to Murdering Newsman in Craigslist Hookup Gone Wrong

An "emotionally disturbed" 16 year-old has confessed to killing ABC radio newsman George Weber in his Brooklyn apartment last Friday, in what appears to be rough sex gone very wrong.

The teen's name isn't being released, but cops tracked him down via Weber's email and cell phone records, and he reportedly confessed to the crime early this morning. Weber had placed a Craigslist ad looking for rough sex:

"He saw the victim's ad looking for violent sex and said "I can smother somebody for $60" but it got out of hand," a source said.

The teen admitted he stabbed Weber, but couldn't remember how many times because he "blanked out" during the violent, drug-fuelled assault.

Details are still sketchy, but uniformly horrifying; the Post says that "The suspect told police that Weber pulled a knife on him, he took it and stabbed the former radio newscaster." Weber apparently fought back and wounded his killer, but ended up stabbed dozens of times, with his ankles bound with duct tape. [NYDN]
