Teen reportedly confesses to murder of ABC newsman

A teenager has reportedly confessed to murdering a popular radio newsman inside his Carroll Gardens apartment earlier this week.

The New York Daily News and other media outlets reported the 16-year-old boy confessed he murdered ABC News Radio anchor George Weber after the newsman reportedly placed an advertisement for rough sex on Craigslist. The teen reportedly stabbed Weber and attempted to cover up the crime.

Police found Weber dead inside his brownstone on Sunday. His ankles were bound with duct tape.

Weber's murder has stunned journalists and those who had known him or had listened to him on the radio over the years. His untimely death comes roughly two and a half years after four Brooklyn men lured Michael Sandy to a secluded beach along the Belt Parkway in Brooklyn to rob him. A car struck and killed him as he attempted to flee.

The teen who allegedly murdered Weber remains in NYPD custody.
