Man Killed After Hurricane Group Sex Found Decomposing In Closet

Three men engaged in group sex during Irma, but when two of the three did their own thing, it turned deadly.

Police in Hollywood, Florida have arrested one of two men they are accusing of killing a man, before jammed his body into a closet. Ariel Gonzalez’s decomposing corpse was later discovered in his blood-and-feces spattered apartment.

According to the Miami Herald, 30-year-old Travis Watson was arrested in connection with the murder. Police are still searching Jacob Mitchell, who allegedly beat Gonzalez with a hanger and broomstick. Mitchell also allegedly poured hot grease on the victim’s head.

Watson told police that Mitchell was upset at Gonzalez for having anal sex with Watson. Earlier, the three men engaged in a threesome: Both Mitchell and Gonzalez gave oral sex to Watson, police claim according to the Miami Herald. Mitchell referred to Watson as his husband, and accused him of cheating. The sex and subsequent murder happened Sept. 10, as Hurricane Irma was drawing near the state.

A friend told the police she noticed a foul smell coming from Watson’s apartment.  Police found Gonzalez “wrapped in a comforter, with a small portion of the head visible.”

Watson recently released from prison, after spending 13 years behind bars for  burglary and grand theft. He was arrested for the murder after being stopped for a municipal ordinance violation on Sept. 27. Police described Mitchell as about five foot, six inches tall, wearing a long blond wig to hide his balding, according to Palm Beach Post.

Watson has been charged with failure to report a death to the medical examiner, amongst other charges.
