On a Sunday afternoon in May , a maintenance worker emptying garbage barrels on the Pennsylvania Turnpike made a grisly discovery: Wrapped inside eight knotted trash bags was the mutilated body of a year-old man, killed by stab wounds to the abdomen, his severed penis shoved in his mouth. A little over a year later, a second dismembered body was discovered wrapped in bags off a remote New Jersey highway. Both victims — older, white-collar professional men, with the heterosexual vestments of marriages and children — had last been seen at an upscale Midtown Manhattan gay piano bar called the Townhouse.
