UPDATE: Rosanna Scotto's son, Louis Ruggiero, has now testified:
TV anchor Rosanna Scotto’s son testified Monday that his ex-pal confessed to slicing the throat of a Connecticut man after a drug-fueled house party — then gobbled down pancakes like nothing ever happened, the New York Post reports.
“I slit his throat and I stabbed him and we wrapped the body up in a comforter and threw it out the window so the cameras wouldn’t see,” Louis Ruggiero, 24, recalled James Rackover saying.
Ruggiero, the son of the popular Fox 5 “Good Day NY” host, said Rackover made the heinous admission inside an Equinox gym locker room a day after the murder. The shocking testimony elicited gasps from the gallery.

ORIGINAL STORY: I've been following the case of brutally murdered club-goer Joseph Comunale from 2016 with great interest, in part because the details of the case are so out-there, and in part because the accused killer — James Rackover — is so obviously the kept boy of famous jeweler Jeffrey Rackover.
My First Post on Comunale's Murder
That gay element (the elder Rackover adopted the younger man, a hottie with a criminal record, and referred to him as his son even though it's quite clear this was a sugar-daddy sitch) is complicated by the odd murder itself, in which James Rackover seemingly killed a sexy young guy he and friends picked up at a bar along with some sexy young women, allegedly over something as stupid as cigarettes. The murder happened after the girls left the boys alone.
