NYPD seeks man connected to 2 women found dead in Manhattan, Brooklyn hotels
Police want to talk to Brooklyn man Joseph Danclair, who they say spent time with both women before their deaths.
New York City cops are on the lookout for a man who spent time with two different women who were found dead in separate hotels.
Investigators said Jospeh Danclair, 36, is wanted for questioning in both cases.
Cops said they found the body of a 43-year-old woman at around 4:15 p.m. on Sept. 8 inside a room at the Manhattan Broadway Hotel on West 38th Street.
Police also discovered the body of a 35-year-old woman inside the Bushwick Hotel on Bushwick Avenue on the evening of July 23.
Authorities declined to identify the manner of death of either woman, pending an investigation by the medical examiner's office.
The New York Post reported on Tuesday morning that both women were found with trauma to their necks.
Danclair, who police said has more than 20 arrests to his name, is desribed as a black man with a medium complexion, black hair, brown eyes, 5-feet-6-inches tall and weighs about 170 pounds.
Police said Danclair also has two prominent tattoos on his arms: two praying hands on his right upper arm, and a rose on his left upper arm.
NYPD asks that anyone with information about the incidents or Danclair call the department's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS or text their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
