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 victim is not being identified pending family notification.

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.

    Nicaragua was recently added to the Central American Nations on Drug-Trafficking List – Business are better than ever thanks to this country's increasing demand, not to mention the birth of the Tea Party...

      It's also full of white ass users and non users in high places who are making tons of money off the trafficking; take away the demand and the source will cease to exist; jackwagon!

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it's NOT a suicide.

    A diplomat being murdered for what? Probably his wallet and the money it contained. What a waste. What we need to do as democracies is kill evil leaders of other countries. Why?
    Because God can't do it. It's against his implementation rules. If he did, he myswell just come here and run the place himself. I'm sure many are thinking God does not exist. Sure he does.
    New York was founded in 1788. Colorado was founded in 1851. It took over 60 years for our ancestors to travel the distance.
    Millions and billions of years of time passed before we came into existence. We are Colorado and our creator is New York but not with 60 years technological advancement time. He had millions or billions of years of technological advancement time before reaching the level of getting to another planet and settling one man and one woman.
    We are incapable of comprehending this because of our short lifespans. Plus our technological advancements have not had even a million years to develope.
