This Is, Er, Odd

But then I’m not a 3 am condom shopper

A motivational speaker from Long Island was found strangled and stabbed in his car in East Harlem Thursday, hours after he was seen buying condoms.

Jeffrey Locker, 52, had his hands tied behind his back and a cord wrapped around his neck and tied to the headrest. He had been stabbed in the chest and robbed, police sources said.

And if I were in that particular demographic, somehow I don’t think I’d drive from Valley Stream, Long Island to East Harlem to do it.

And of course he’s got a wife and three kids.

    Something about buying condoms at a deli bothers me but I can’t quite put my finger on it.

    Maybe because delis also sell salami, Rob?

    I guess y’all ain’t used to full service bodegas in your neck of the woods, Rob 🙂

  4. Rob says:

    Not how I’d protect the salami, Jeffs, but those New Yorkers are different, I suppose.

    We have full service bodegas, Mr B, but I never considered a New York deli a bodega. Maybe I’ve been mis-informed. Ask THS about the Central Grocery in New Orleans. THAT’S a bodega. Don’t think they sell condoms, though I’ve never asked.
