Idiot Strauss-Kahn Returns to the Scene of the Crime

Or at least the way it is done in the digital age.

IMF Chief Dominque Strauss-Kahn, who allegedly sexually attacked a hotel maid at the New York City Sofitel Hotel, left his cell phone behind in his hotel suite in his haste to leave the scene of the crime. He fled to JFK Airport to attempt to flee to France. Police hauled him off an Air France flight.

Police were able to locate him so quickly because he called the hotel about his cell phone.

According to WSJ:
 A key moment came, police said, when Mr. Strauss-Kahn called the hotel to ask if he had left his cellphone there. A hotel security official fibbed and said he did have the phone—then asked for Mr. Strauss-Kahn's location to meet him and return it. Police made the arrest at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, where Mr. Strauss-Kahn had boarded a flight for France.
In other developments,  Strauss-Kahn's arraignment has been delayed late Sunday becasue police sought a search warrant to examine the IMF chief's body for scratches or the accuser's DNA, a law-enforcement official told WSJ.

The official said detectives have recovered DNA evidence at the scene.

  1. I wonder how hard it was for the detectives to find DNA from the guy's hotel room.

    Unless by "at the scene" they mean "on the maid".
