Police: Nicaraguan diplomat found with throat slashed

A Nicaraguan diplomat based in New York was found dead Thursday with his throat slashed in his apartment in the Bronx, said NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne.

The body of the diplomat was found by his driver, said Police Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne. A knife was found at the scene, Browne said.

He said it is too early in the investigation to classify the death as a murder or a suicide.
