Dancer Murders His Boyfriend and Posts About It on Facebook: ‘I Give Life and Can Take it Away’
Marcus Bellamy, 32, has been charged with murder in connection with the death of his 27-year-old boyfriend Bernardo Almonte, who was found by police suffering from head trauma at about 4 p.m., a New York Police Department spokesperson said:
“Someone who lives in the building saw [Bellamy] walking out of the building with blood on his hands then inquired what happened and [Bellamy] made reference that he ‘hurt’ the victim,” the spokesperson says.
The neighbor called police and then entered the apartment to find Almonte unconscious, lying face down. After authorities responded to the scene, Almonte was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead and Bellamy was arrested, police say.
On a Facebook page appearing to belonging to a Bellamy, several cryptic messages seem to allude to the death.
“Forgive me. I did it because I love you. I love you all. I loved him also,” “He told me love and hate are the same emotion. Forgive me. I know not what I do. I did it for love.”
An earlier post reads: “I am god. I give life and can take it away. So let it be. #therapture.”
Listings on Playbill.com show that Bellamy was a dancer in Broadway’s Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark and Tarzan.
An IMDB page for the dancer shows that he danced in the 2007 film Across the Universe and the TV series Smash.
