Lab Tech Murder Suspect Arrested
Police say they found the guy who killed, burned, and stuck a knife in young CSI lab tech Michelle Lee. We order the verbs that way because NYPD believes Gary McGurk, who was the lab tech's boyfriend, killed her with a blow to the head with an iron, then burned and stabbed her to make it look like a more exotic, intruder-related crime than the domestic dispute that it now appears to be. McGurk sounds like a real peach; an Irish immigrant, professional con man, and until last year a soccer player on the John Jay College squad (which has a fine forensics program; this may be how he met the criminologist Lee), he had allegedly conned Lee out of thousands of dollars with the story that he was dying of cancer (which appears to be false).
