The son of an Oscar-winning songwriter was arrested Friday on charges of choking his Peruvian-born girlfriend, a fashion designer found dead and half-clothed in a bathtub overflowing with water in a posh hotel, police said.
Nicholas Brooks, 24, was arrested on charges of attempted murder and strangulation in the death of Sylvie Cachay, who was discovered around 3 a.m. Thursday at the Soho House hotel.

That is creepy. UGH! From your link:

The 72-year-old tunesmith was accused in 2009 of forcing himself on 11 women he lured to his home by promising them roles in films.
He faces an incredible 82 counts of rape, sexual abuse, criminal sexual act and assault.

ITA with you.
this is what he Mom said:

"He had a bad life," said Sylvia Cachay, the victim's mother, referring to Brooks.

"She liked to save people," said her mom, a painter who spoke adoringly about her daughter's upbringing in this wealthy suburban Washington enclave of the rich

I was thinking about what her mom said that "she liked to save people". How many women do that... think that somehow they can change someone? I've been guilty of that
myself. It wasn't until I was in my 40's that I realized what you see is what you get. You can't change other people. And you can't save them, either.

Wow. Just wow. I mean, I'd have him arrested just for "You Light Up My Life", but this is sickening.

I left the same way reading that he came into her life when her dog died. I'm sure she was especially vulnerable. I've lost pets, so I know what an emotional roller coaster you are on when your pet dies. I think he was a real lowlife. And all that info about the father makes me sick. These are the kind of people that just make your skin crawl. And he was unemployed and living in a $4000 a month place?? Doesn't seem like he was on the same level as her at all. She was a very talented and had her whole life in front of her. Very Sad.

Apparently Le has ruled her death a homicide. However, the medical examiner has ruled her death inconclusive. It is waiting for the results of toxicology tests which should take a few weeks.

According to CNN affiliate WABC, authorities are treating Cachay's death as a homicide. However, Brooks cannot be charged with murder until the medical examiner determines the death was the result of a homicide. Cachay's body was discovered early Thursday.

One of my best friends is a stylist, and he worked with Sylvie a couple of times over the last few years in styling her models for fashion shows. He told me she was incredibly sweet, completely approachable and flexible unlike many others he works with in the industry, and very talented yet humble. Also, Sylvie lived in my neighborhood prior to her death and she looks familiar to me, like I may have passed her on the street a few times. This one hits close to home, and it just makes me so sad and angry that this loser 'suffering' from testosterone poisoning, this trustafarian who has probably never worked a day in his life, was so easily able to snuff out the life of this beautiful soul. RIP Sylvie. Murder charges are definitely coming; hopefully this cretin and his father will both be in jail for a very long time, very soon. clearly the apple doesn't fall very far from the tree.

hmmm :waitasec: thanks for the new words: trustafarian; testosterone poisoning. Never heard those before. ;)

It is more than likely this guy, but we are not sure yet.
However, she was way too young to go and way too precious.
It is so sad when a special spirit is gone with no reason.
Such a senseless death. :(

How very sad. She had her whole life and this nut job had to take it away
for no reason at all. Just a waste.

I am moved to tears that such a talented young lady lost her life
again to her bf.

Rest in Peace

Wow Brooks is a real piece of work. He definitely lives in his own world that's for sure...which doesn't seem to include reality. That's what happens a lot with these trust fund baby stoner types. They have such a gigantic sense of entitlement...it's not surprising they turn sociopathic.

He's worried about getting beat up!

I think a bit of azz beating might do this chump a world of good. Sort of a wake up call to him to stay in line and not talk till someone addresses him.
I just can't express how I feel about men who abuse women and take their lives. His father was a notorious rapist and he just followed in his heinous footsteps.

Just a bit of azz beating is fine. So, maybe he can be a bit scared, Your Honor. :banghead: Nobody's complaining...

Hi Goz :blowkiss:

Sadly he is displaying a ME ME ME mentality.
Sadly, he maintains his innocence regardless to the fact that a video camera has caught him coming and going repeatedly that night.
Sadly, he does not seem to be effected by her death :(

But also sadly he was raised by a monster and has no boundaries, healthy reference points or a moral compass.
