The tragic assassination of Benazir Bhutto has quite a number of conspiracy theorists lining up to offer their analysis, was it fate or destiny we may never know but some have gone to speculate it may have been the Bhutto curse where all members of the Bhutto dynasty are slowly eradicated, and in the recent surge of theories emerges another angle about an ill fated penthouse New York apartment which Benazir may have bought a year back.
The Wag Online published an article recently by Seema Boesky titled The Cursed Apartment, where she shares here experience in trying to sell her penthouse apartment in Manhattan New York (The Belaire Condominium, East 72nd street) Previous two attempts to the apartment lead to the sudden death of the prospective buyers.
… To recap, my first buyer dropped dead at the closing. The second, with contract in hand, bolted down 47 flights of stairs, never to be heard from again. Why? My building is the one New York Yankee pitcher Cory Lidle flew an airplane into, tragically crashing it five floors below my apartment—where my buyer was signing our contract.
This penthouse had now seemingly being cursed to sell, but shortly later the real estate agent had lined up another buyer, for the initial meetings came the husband who according to Seema was charming, attractive, in his 50s, and extremely chatty and a few days later she encountered ‘a stunning woman with an engaging smile’ who finalized the deal.
Our closing went quickly and easily, and while unpacking my belongings for the third and final time in Westchester, I remember thinking how silly my broker was for believing my apartment was jinxed. One year later, newspaper headlines proved her right after all, and the sale has left me feeling sad ever since. My buyer? Benazir Bhutto.
Whatever might be the case, fate or destiny we shall never know, it simply is a sinking feeling to have lost a Pakistani leader at the hands of ruthless terrorists may her soul rest in peace.
