Nicholas Brooks Indicted in Death of Ex-Girlfriend Sylvie Cachay
Nicholas Brooks, who the New York Post keeps reminding us is a hard-partying stoner and the "son of accused serial-raping Oscar-winning composer Joe Brooks" whenever they mention his name (why not also mention "questionable facial hair"?), has been indicted in the death of his ex-girlfriend, swimsuit designer Sylvie Cachay, who reportedly broke up with him a day before she was found dead in a bathtub at the Soho House.
Neck trauma and bleeding in Cachay's eyes indicate to investigators that she was strangled and her death due to asphyxiation. Brooks, believed to be the last person to have seen her alive, is now being held without bail on the charges until a court appearance on January 4, reports the Post.
