A 68-year-old Bronx, NY man is dead after a money dispute with a male prostitute led to his mutilation and death. Police say 32-year-old Jerry Pagan, cut off the man’s penis and left him to bleed to death because he thought the unnamed victim owed him money for sex. Pagan told authorities he used a pair of scissors to sever the man’s sexual organ, though police also found knives at the scene that they think were used.
Neighbors called 911 after seeing blood seeping out of the front door of the man’s apartment. Inside they found Pagan, who is homeless and lives in the area, and the dead man lying in his own bathtub, filled with blood. Pagan told police he had also intended to eat.
It is believed the man had paid Pagan several times in the past for sex. Pagan had been arrested and charged with second-degree murder.
