    Default Woman Is Found Dead at Club Three Days After Party for Lil’ Kim

    The body of a 24-year-old woman who attended a birthday party for the rapper Lil’ Kim on Sunday was found Wednesday on the roof of the Midtown karaoke club where the party was held, the police said.

    The woman, identified by the police as Ingrid Rivera of Queens, was discovered shortly before 5 p.m. in a utility closet on the roof of Spotlight Live, a live-music venue, nightclub and karaoke bar at 1604 Broadway near 49th Street. An investigator said they believed Ms. Rivera, who worked for British Airways at Kennedy Airport, had left the party and was beaten with a blunt object — possibly a Champagne bottle — and left for dead.

    The police said that she was last seen on Sunday night and was reported missing on Tuesday.

    “She was pretty tipsy,” said a cousin, Lizbeth Estrada, 18, of Richmond Hill Queens, who noted that although she was not at the club she had spoken with friends of the dead girl.

    Ms. Estrada said that Ms. Rivera had been asked to leave because she went into the men’s bathroom instead of the ladies room. “The bouncer picked on her,” she said she was told.

    After getting thrown out, the cousin said, Ms. Rivera and a friend started to get in into a taxi to go Soel Club and Lounge in Long Island City, but then the two got out because her friend, whom she did not identify, “didn’t want to get into a taxi with three girls she did not know.”

    “Her friend was immediately admitted and went inside without seeing what happened to Ingrid,” Ms, Estrada said. “The last time Ingrid was seen she was talking to the bouncer.”

    The investigator said the party on Sunday night for Lil’ Kim, whose real name is Kimberly Jones, was attended by many musicians, actors and other entertainers.

    “Ingrid was so excited she even bought Kim Flowers,” Ms, Estrada said.

    The actress LisaRaye McCoy-Misick, who is married to the premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands and is a friend of Lil’ Kim’s, attended the party, and said in a telephone interview early Thursday morning: “When I was there, everything was cool. But we didn’t stay very long. Celebrities never do. And everything was fine then.”

    The investigator said that the killer was probably familiar with the layout of the building because of where the woman’s body was found. Emergency medical workers pronounced the victim dead at the scene, the police said.

    The official cause of death would be determined by the medical examiner’s office, the police said.

    Outside the nightclub on Wednesday night, under the bright lights of Times Square, tourists passed slowly and gawked. They pulled close to the police barricades that stretched halfway down the block.

    “We saw the police and the cameras and we were asking ourselves, ‘What is up?’ We thought maybe it was a premiere,” said Paolo Prono, 29, an engineer from Rome. “A dead body is not so exciting. It’s horrible. And it’s horrible that lots of people are so curious about it.”

    He added, “We were looking for somebody famous.”

    Late Wednesday night, Lilly Macmonhele, 21, from Kerry, Ireland, who said she had been at the club the previous night, remarked: “This is really crazy. Everything was perfectly normal. We were singing karaoke. It’s insane.”

    A note at the front door of the club read: “Spotlight Live will be closed 8-6-08 due to circumstances beyond our control. We apologize for the inconvenience.”

    Early Thursday, about 12:15 a.m., investigators emerged from the club carrying a white box with red letters spelling out “evidence.”

    Man Arrested Over Beating Death at Lil' Kim Party
    A death at Lil Kim's birthday celebration


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A New York City nightclub worker has confessed to beating a woman to death during a Sunday night birthday celebration for rapper Lil' Kim, the police commissioner said.

    Rahman Syed, 24, was arrested at his home on Thursday after the body of Ingrid Rivera, also 24, was found stuffed in a rooftop utility room on Wednesday afternoon.

    No charges have been laid but Syed, a bartender's assistant at the Spotlight Live club in Times Square, admitted killing Rivera, New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said. Rivera was last seen at Spotlight Live, where bouncers kicked her out because she was drunk.

    Police said that was when Rivera met Syed, who offered to take her to find a friend. Syed hit Rivera with a metal pipe in the building's elevator shed in the early hours of Monday after she refused his advances, police said.

    When Rivera did not come home, her family filed a missing persons report. Police were unable to find the woman, despite searching the club, until a maintenance man discovered her body in the rooftop room more than two days after her death.

    Spotlight Live representatives did not return calls for comment. "We will be taking a very focused look at that club," said Kelly. "These are advertised events. It was not a private party." Kelly estimated about 500 people were at the club at the time of Rivera's death.

    Lil' Kim, whose real name is Kimberly Jones, celebrated her 34th birthday with fellow celebrities including Missy Elliot, Busta Rhymes, Lamar Odom and Wyclef Jean, according to the New York Daily News.

    Kelly said the Grammy Award-winning rapper will not be interviewed in connection with the crime. Lil' Kim's publicist was not immediately available to comment on the woman's death. Lil' Kim served a year and a day in prison in 2005 when she was found guilty of conspiracy and perjury after lying to a grand jury about her friends' involvement in a 2001 shooting.
