A young Manhattan designer was found dead – his hands cuffed behind his back – inside his luxury Financial District apartment Monday, police said.
Alejandro Bulaevsky, 26, a lighting designer who studied at Parsons the New School for Design, was found on the kitchen floor of his West St. apartment about 5:30 p.m., police sources said.
Crime scene investigators were poring over the studio apartment Monday night, but police sources said Bulaevsky’s body bore no apparent signs of trauma and there were no signs of a break-in.
Bulaevsky was last seen about 8 p.m. Sunday and failed to show for work Monday, the sources said. His body was found by the building super, who used a key to gain entry to the apartment’s locked door. There were no signs that anything had been stolen from the apartment.
