The body of a woman who was bludgeoned to death was found last night on the roof of the nightclub Spotlight Live, a popular Times Square karaoke spot. It's unknown what happened to Ingrid Rivera, 24, other than that she was initially kicked out of the bar three nights ago for being too drunk. The club was really rocking that Sunday night because it was formerly jailed rapper Lil' Kim's birthday party — the reason that Rivera had made the trek in from Richmond Hill, Queens. Police are still questioning partygoers, but at least one celebrity has weighed in on the events of the night: LisaRaye McCoy, who is a former CW star, half-sister to Da Brat, and the wife of Turks and Caicos premier Michael Misick. LisaRaye is a friend of Lil' Kim's and was at the birthday party. This was her insight, as told to the Times:

When I was there, everything was cool. But we didn’t stay very long. Celebrities never do. And everything was fine then.


Ah. Because only hoi polloi stay at a club long to get bludgeoned to death, clearly. We're sure the cops will be grateful for the help.
