Manuel Baez, 27, is being charged with the murder of Dr. Howard Baker, 75, who was found killed inside his room at the Rodeway Inn on Monday afternoon, police said.
Baker, who was married with two adult sons, was found naked on the floor with a belt around his neck, the Associated Press reported.
Surveillance footage showed him leaving the room twice and returning with a different man each time. A man, believed to be Baez, was later seen leaving with Baker’s backpack and wallet.
Homicide captain James Clark told Philly.com on Thursday that Baez “gave a full confession.”
Apparently, Dr. Baker, who had an office nearby and specialized in “relationship problems” told his wife he was going to be in that area for the Eagles game.
