A New York City lawmaker is warning gay men that a killer may be targeting them. Council member Daniel Dromm says that two openly gay men have been murdered within a week of each other in his district, which encompasses Jackson Heights and Elmhurst, Queens. The first murder occurred at 32-23 91st Street on February 3, 2013 and the second murder occurred exactly one week later on February 10, 2013 at the Crown Motor Inn at 74-01 Queens Boulevard. Dromm says that in both cases, the men were strangled. In both cases, there was no forced entry into their rooms.
