In March 1996, “King of the Club Kids”, promoter Michael Alig, after appearing on TV’s Geraldo and on the cover of New York Magazine, bashed his friend and DJ, Angel Melendez in the head with a hammer, who died quickly. His body was then dismembered and stuffed into a duct taped cardboard box. Alig proceeded to tell any one of his friends from the raging 90s NYC club scene who would listen, what he had done, but the problem was, Alig’s well known, over the top depraved behavior was such that no one believed him.

“Has anyone seen Angel?”

“He’s dead. I cut him up and put him in that box over in the corner…”
