Man Allegedly Dies During 'Extreme' Threesome, Case Ruled As Homicide

| by Emily Smith

The death of a 41-year-old man from New Jersey has been ruled a murder; his death is believed to be caused by extreme sex.

Paul Dawson was killed inside a Comfort Inn in New York City on June 9. Although his death was previously blamed on sadomasochism and “extreme sex” gone wrong while his head was wrapped in plastic, it is now being classified as a homicide.

Dawson also took methamphetamine and GHB, the date rape drug, just hours before he died. Detectives believe one of the men Dawson had sex with gave him the drugs to prolong their encounter.

Ruth Carpenter, Dawson’s sister-in-law, noted that she suspected foul play from the beginning.

“But the police all kept telling us, ‘No, no, no, it was because of his lifestyle.’ They kind of swept it under the rug,” Carpenter said.

Carpenter added that while Dawson was openly gay, he never took drugs.

“He was cheerful; he liked musicals,” Carpenter said. “He would always be singing. He collected Star Wars stuff, and figurines, like Godzilla. He was a big kid at heart.”

The identities of the other two men involved in the threesome have not been revealed.

Police continue to investigate.
