The body of 24 year old Ingrid Rivera was found dead inside a rooftop utility shed at the Spotlight Live Karaoke Club in Times Square on Wednesday. The location had hosted a birthday party for rapper Lil’ Kim over the weekend.
According to the official, a friend of Rivera’s who was with her at the club on Sunday, when the rapper’s party was held, says she last saw the victim being escorted out the door. It was unclear why she was kicked out and how she ended up back inside.
A second police official, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said Thursday that investigators believe the woman died from a blow to the head and that they were “near an arrest” in the case.
Lil’ Kim’s representatives have stated that she knows nothing of the matter and was not familiar with the Ms. Rivera.
