Report: Confession in George Weber murder links slaying to "rough sex" ad

The murder of former Denver radio personality George Weber over the weekend in Brookyln appears to have been solved -- and the resolution is even more sordid than a March 24 article in the New York Post suggested. "'Violent Sex' Ad Led to Murder of WABC Newsman George Weber, Confesses Teen," from the New York Daily News, reports that sixteen-year-old John Katehis told authorities that he answered "an ad Weber placed on the Internet looking for a partner in 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 assault."

Katehis' MySpace page certainly paints a vivid picture of the teen. The landing page is filled with anarchist symbols, the single blog entry concerns Satanism, and his photo gallery includes a section devoted to shots of him posing with assorted swords and knives.
