A nightclub worker has confessed to the brutal murder of a 24-year-old woman during Lil’ Kim’s birthday party last weekend. Rahman Syed, also 24, worked as a bartender’s assistant at Spotlight Live nightclub in Times Square. He confessed to killing Ingrid Rivera on Sunday night and stuffing her body in a utility shed on the roof of the nightclub. Rivera’s body was found by a maintenance worker on Wednesday - 2 days after she had been reported missing by her mother.
The murdered woman was one of 500 guests at rapper Lil’ Kim’s birthday party held at Spotlight Live on Sunday night. Rivera was tossed out of the nightclub because she was drunk. She later crossed paths with Syed who told her he would take her to her friend inside the club.
Syed told police he lured Rivera to the rooftop shed where he beat Rivera in the head with a metal pipe after she refused his sexual advances. No charges have been filed in the case. Rivera had worked as a ticket agent for Delta Airlines at Kennedy airport.
