Saudi Prince Strangles Servant in London Luxury Hotel
It's hard to get good help these days - especially if you keep killing them. A man claiming to be a member of the Saudi royal family has been arrested on suspicion of murder after one of his servants was found strangled at a palatial London luxury hotel, the London Daily Mail reports. Police were called to the five-star Landmark Hotel in Marylebone (above) after a maid found the body of a 32-year-old Saudi Arabian man in one of the poshest suites. The victim, believed to be part of the as-yet-unnamed royal's entourage, had been strangled and suffered severe head injuries in the attack. The 33-year-old prime suspect informed authorities that he is a prince of the Saudi royal family who had apparently been living the high life at the hotel for the past month. Rooms at the Landmark, built in 1899, cost up to £2,400 per night for the presidential suite. Rocker Liam Gallagher, Justin Timberlake and Formula One champ Lewis Hamilton are among its celebrity clientele. Michelle Obama also held a fundraising event for her husband there in 2007. Officials have said the prince does not have diplomatic immunity; the Saudi embassy has refused to comment.
