Fashion Designer Found Dead in New York Hotel

An increasingly popular swimsuit designer was found dead in an overflowing bathtub Thursday in her New York City hotel.
Sylvie Cachay, 33, was found dead with red marks on her neck, a bitemark on her hand, and bloodshot eyes in an overflowing bathroom at her hotel room in the SoHo House, the New York Daily News said.
Cachay, who created the high-end Syla swimwear collection, was discovered by hotel staff after occupants below her room reported water leaking through the ceiling, the Washington Post said.
Cachay had been staying at the exclusive SoHo House for the week because there was a small fire in her apartment bedroom, the Washington Post said.
Cachay's 24-year-old boyfriend of six months, Nicholas Brooks, has been charged with attempted murder and strangulation, the New York Daily News said.
There was not a sign of a struggle in the room and there were prescription bottles found, the Washington Post said.
