Diplomat found dead after throat was slashed with steak knife in New York apartment just hours before Obama's UN speech
A top Nicaraguan diplomat was found dead with his throat slashed and his stomach stabbed.
The bloody body of César Mercado, 34, was discovered yesterday inside his New York apartment by his horrified driver.
The driver had turned up there at 10.35am to pick Mercado up for the United Nations General Assembly's annual meeting, where U.S. President Barack Obama gave a speech.
He was last seen alive the day before.
