Gregory Michael Pisarcik was sentenced on Friday for the murder of Narciso Leggs Jr., a retired immigration agent whom investigators found dead in his apartment in 2002 after the man had been missing for several days.
They met by coincidence in Laguna Beach, on a bench. Pisarcik was intending to Rob someone but admitted that after meeting Leggs “knew right then and there” he was going to commit murder.
Leggs invited Pisarcik to his apartment for a drink, and took a shower. When he emerged from the shower, Pisarcik was waiting.
Pisarcik then smashed the 53-year-old Leggs’ head with a Champagne bottle, cut off his ears with scissors, and wrote an anti-gay slur on the victim’s back. “If Mr. Pisarcik had really known what kind of person my brother Narciso was, he could not have been able to murder my brother. Whether my brother was gay or straight, my brother projected a very useful, hardworking and positive life. He never judged others,” the victim’s sister said in court.
Pisarcik was silent during his sentence, which is life in prison without parole.
