New York lighting designer Alejandro Bulaevsky was found dead in his downtown apartment handcuffed, wearing a gas mask and latex suit. Police also found "several sadomasochistic contraptions" and steroids at the scene. Neighbors say he was a "party guy."

From the NY Post:

Alejandro Bulaevsky, 26, who graduated from Parsons The New School for Design and worked on several glitzy New York and Las Vegas projects, was found face down on the floor of his Financial District studio apartment at 90 West St. shortly before 5:30 p.m. Monday, cops said.

Investigators said there were no signs of forced entry, and say Bulaevsky may have been alone. Nothing had been stolen, and there were no obvious signs of trauma.
