A New Lead In The Rashawn Brazell Case?

This looks promising, but sketchy. Not just because it's coming from the NY Post, but because one would think this would have surfaced some time ago. Let's hope the trail isn't too cold

Gay Beau Sought In Body-Chop Slay

The gruesome slaying of a gay Brooklyn teen whose dismembered body was found in a subway tunnel - once sparking fears of a transit-worker killer - had an older lover whom cops now want to grill.

Investigators recently discovered that tragic aspiring Web-site designer Rashawn Brazell, 19, had a boyfriend who rented a room around the corner from Brazell's Gates Avenue home in Bedford-Stuyvesant, law-enforcement sources told The Post.

The older man - described by cops only as in his 30s and living on welfare - hasn't been seen since the death of Brazell, who vanished on Valentine's Day 2004, the sources said. The man is believed to have moved somewhere down South.

Of course, leave it to the NY Post to twist it with that tacky-assed, tasteless headline.
