Goldstein answered the door in high heels, makeup, lipstick — and a filthy pair of slacks. He initially told police he hadn't seen his roommate, but cops noticed a foul smell and found Sultan's body in a pool of blood on the living-room floor.You can read it all here, here and here.
The cause of death was listed as multiple blunt- and sharp-force injuries with a skull fracture and laceration of the brain.
Neighbors said Goldstein moved into Sultan's apartment a year ago, after the older man's wife died, and had been helping with the rent.
Inside Goldstein's locked bedroom, cops found walls plastered with pornographic pictures and portraits of Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, the Lubavitch sect leader.
Next to his bed stood a rubber sex doll dressed in black lace, with custom-made water-bottle-top nipples.
