In a fatal turn of events late last night, a madman murdered a lawyer that had a secret penchant for S&M, then kidnapped his Ivy League dominatrix girlfriend, held the police at bay for hours, then shot himself. Anthony Ottaviano, an attorney for a top firm in New York was shot by David Kreig who was apparently obsessed with Ottaviano’s girlfriend, Edythe Maa aka Jade Vixen. Maa is a dominatrix who specializes in what the New York Post refers to as, “tickle torture, nipple play and ‘sissy slut training.’” After a nine hour stand off with the cops, Kreig shot himself in the head with the same gun he used to kill Ottaviano.
“It’s a terrible tragedy,” said Jack Baughman, a partner at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, where Ottaviano worked.
“He was a really nice guy. He was a hard worker. He was conscientious. He was careful.”
Ottaviano’s secret kinky life of parties at fetish club in New York turned out to be his downfall. Krieg, who had been a client of Maa’s, had been stalking her for moths and after Ottaviano and his girlfriend returned to her home in Philadelphia, Krieg was waiting for them nearby. Krieg then shot Ottaviano and forced Maa into his car. Krieg then drove around with Maa for hours
Maa, who dropped out of a Ph.D. engineering program at the University of Pennsylvania, convinced him to let her go, and he dropped her off at his relatives’ house in West Chester, Pa., shortly after 4 a.m. on Monday, police said.
She then called the cops, who began a search for the car. Krieg was quickly found by the authorities and in an ensuing stand off between him and the police, held a gun to his head and shot himself.
Krieg, a body builder, leaves behind an ex-wife and child.
Friends and colleagues of Ottaviano were stunned and saddenly by the sudden loss of the lawyer and the tragedy that unfolded.
“It’s a dark day. We lost a good person,” Donn Winn, a lifelong friend, told the Philadelphia Inquirer. Winn, who works as a New York state trooper, told the paper his pal grew up in Tonawanda, near Buffalo.
