Sylvie Cachay’s Death Ruled Homicide


The city Medical Examiner’s Office officially ruled Wednesday that thirty-three year-old swimsuit designer Sylvie Cachay was murdered by strangulation and drowning at the Soho House earlier this month. Her ex-boyfriend Nick Brooks has already been charged with attempted murder and strangulation in connection with her death. Twenty-four year-old Brooks told cops Cachay was alive when he left to get some dinner the night of her death. He was seen on video repeatedly entering and leaving her hotel room the same night.
