Swimsuit Designer Sylvie Cachay

The beautiful swimsuit designer found dead in a bathtub at the swanky Soho House was strangled and drowned, the Medical Examiner's Office ruled yesterday. Sylvie Cachay, 33, was found partially clothed in the overflowing bathtub in her room at the ritzy hotel early on Dec. 9. She was killed by a combination of strangulation and drowning, said an ME spokeswoman. Cachay -- who had attended the Paris School of Art and Design and started the swimsuit line Syla -- had wounds on her neck, bleeding in her eyes and a bite mark on her hand. Her boyfriend, Nick Brooks, whose dad is Oscar-winning songwriter -- and accused rapist -- Joseph Brooks, will likely face upgraded charges of murder. - NY Post
