Police have identified two suspects wanted in connection with the death of a Chelsea man.
Investigators are looking for Edwin Faulkner, 30, and Juan Carlos Martinez-Herrera, 26.
Sources say John Laubach, 57, paid the two men to have sex with him.
However, one friend tells NY1 he believes the men were "boyfriends, lovers" and that money was not involved.
Laubach's body was found inside his West 22nd Street apartment on March 2.
Sources say his hands, feet, and mouth were bound with duct tape, and he had a towel over his face.
Anyone with information about the case is being asked to contact Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS, by texting TIP577 to CRIMES, or by going to NYPDCrimeStoppers.com.
