We recall DLA Piper law firm associate, David Messerschmitt, was murdered during his attempt to seek out paid recreational gay sex in D.C.. And, Manhattan skin doctor, Kristen Cerveney, died during what seems to have been a drug overdose. She collapsed in the doorway of a New York City building.
Currently Newman is on the hot seat in Manhattan for allegedly drugging a female ER patient and ejaculating in her face. In a hearing in Manhattan Supreme Court, the prosecution contends he gave the young woman the drug propofol. After administering that powerful sedative he allegedly engaged in that sexual act.

He had been arrested last January. Here is the coverage in the New York Post.
