Horror Hotel Claims Another

What's going on at the Gregory? You can check in, but you can't check out... Sounds like an actual horror movie.

Sometime yesterday afternoon the body of 52-year-old Bay Ridge restaurateur Paul Mento was found by a cleaning lady in Room 221. Mento's mouth had been covered with duct tape, and he was dead in the bathtub.

Paul lived on 71st street. He was an accountant and reportedly one of several partners, along with his son, in that new spot on 3rd avenue, Aura.

You may recall a few months ago, 27-year-old David Diaz was found beaten and stabbed to death in the hotel as well. Pamela Hanson, 20, of Bed-Stuy, was later arrested for his murder.
