A detective, left, briefs New York City Council Member Fernando Cabrera, center, and Assemblyman Nelson Castro as they
arrive at the scene where Nicaraguan diplomat, Cesar Mercado, 34, was found dead with his throat slashed in his New York
apartment. He was found by his driver, who was picking him up for the United Nations General Assembly's annual meeting.
icaraguan official
found dead before
metin g at the U.N..

Diplomat discovered
with throat slashed,
knife in apartment
NEW YORK (AP) - A Nicara-
guan diplomat was found dead yes-
terday with his throat slashed in
his blood-spattered apartment and
a knife by his side, hours before he
was to attend the United Nations
General Assembly's annual meet-
ing, officials said.
Cesar Mercado, 34, who had
worked at the Nicaraguan consul-
ate as acting consul general, was
found at 10:35 a.m. in his apart-
ment in the Bronx by the driver
who came to pick him up to attend
the meeting, police said.
The driver found the door ajar
and Mercado's body lying just
inside, police said.
"The knife was found on the
floor next to him," said Paul
Browne, the NYPD's deputy com-
missioner for public information.
Police were investigating and no
suspects were immediately iden-
4i

tified. Investigators were looking
into Mercado's recent contacts, his
relationships and where he had
been during the days leading up
to the slaying. A motive remained
unclear.
"He had no enemies. He was
loved by everyone who knew him,"
a friend, Amparo Amador, said in
Spanish. "When I first heard of his
death, I thought he must've died
from natural causes because there
would be no way he could be killed."
Mercado came to the U.S. in
2001 to work as an assistant in the
office of Nicaragua's ambassador
to the United Nations, a friend
said. He was single and his family
was in Nicaragua.
He eventually took on the duties
of consul general, working with
passports and immigration visas.
Amador said he was like a son to
her. Recently, she'd urged him to
go to the doctor because he looked
thin, and he was diagnosed with
diabetes. The two danced at a wed-
ding of another friend in Brooklyn
last week, she said.
"He was the perfect guy. The

best person, just wonderful," she
said. "I feel as if one of my children
has died."
Leaders from 192 nations were
in town for the General Assembly,
including Nicaraguan President
Daniel Ortega, who is a fierce critic
of the United States and a defender
of North Korea and Iran. President
Barack Obama addressed the Gen-
eral Assembly on Thursday.
Nicaraguan Vice President
Jaime Morales said U.S. Ambassa-
dor Robert Callahan assured him
that the FBI would do everything
possible to investigate.
The assistant to the ambassa-
dor said the Nicaraguan mission
in New York couldn't immediately
release any information.
Mercado lived on the top floor
of a six-story apartment building
in a working-class section of the
Bronx. Police barred reporters
from entering the building yes-
terday. Residents said they didn't
hear anything out of the ordinary
Wednesday night, but some said
it's often noisy in the building at
night.
