Questionable Death at 14th and Corcoran

For those that missed this from the Rant or Revel section a reader wrote:

“Just saw a bodybag [presumably with a corpse inside] being brought out of that strange white brick building at the corner of 14th & Corcoran [northwest corner]. Anyone know what’s up?”

As others have noted the blog Borderstan had the scoop:

“The location of the death is the upstairs unit of 1618 14th Street, at the northwest corner of 14th and Corcoran Streets NW. According to published reports (MetroWeekly) and numerous online reviews, the building houses a sex club for gay and bisexual men. The club last made news when it experienced a fire in June of 2005.”

I guess I’m a bit naive as well. Are sex clubs legal? Anyway, I walked by this afternoon and there was a cop car sitting out front and police tape still covered the doorways.
