Murder on Carroll Street

We write about the area around Carroll and Bond Street a lot, but usually in the context of development issues. Yesterday, around noon, a reader sent us a photo of a police investigation related to a death at 326 Carroll and said that foul play was being investigated. As it turns out, someone living in the basement apartment at that address was murdered. According to 7Online:
Police tell Eyewitness News a man was discovered dead, possibly fatally stabbed, in a basement apartment in the Carrol Gardens section of Brooklyn. The victim, a man in his 20s, was found inside 326 Carroll Street at around 11 a.m. this morning. The medical examiner will determine the cause of death. However, detectives believe he may have been fatally stabbed.
The Times provided this detail:
...Sanjeev Seekoomar, 34, was found on Tuesday morning stabbed to death in his basement apartment at 326 Carroll Street in Carroll Gardens, the police said. The door to the apartment was pushed in and the apartment ransacked, indicating a possible burglary or robbery, but motive was being investigated, the police said.
The Daily News adds the details that the victims throat was slashed and that he may have been killed by a possible sex partner. The Post opines that the victim may have known the killer.

Scary and sad.
