On Monday shortly after 5 a.m., 23-year-old Christopher Adames was stabbed to death on West 21st Street between 11th and 12th Avenues outside the Juliet Supperclub (which you would recognize if you watch Mob Wives). Adames was rushed to Bellevue and pronounced dead on arrival. Police have identified the suspect, 41-year-old Manuel Pinero. He's described as 6'2", 260 pounds, and he drives a black 2010 Audi SUV, plate number ETU5963.

According to DNA Info, the stabbing happened a few hours after LeBron James and his entourage left the club. Adames was standing outside talking with two women when someone stabbed him four times and left the scene.

Adames lived in Washington Heights and had a five-year-old daughter. As of right now it's not clear what kind of connection Pinero had to Adames and police haven't revealed a motive for the killing.

The NYPD asks that anyone with information as to Pinero's whereabouts call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS or submit tips at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.

First and Foremost my condolences go out to Christopher Adames' family, this is a tragic loss. I know that there is nothing anyone can do to bring him back to you, and I cannot imagine the immense pain that you are going through.I haven't slept much since hearing about this, and I have spent countless hours crying to the point that I couldn't breath. When I saw that Manny was being accused of such a heinous act I could have sworn my heart was ripped out of my chest. I immediately thought to myself, Manny??? NO they have the wrong person. Manny is the sweetest, kindest person I know. He is funny and so mellow and easygoing.. Manny would never take the life of another human being. He takes care of so many people he would never put himself in a situation to ever jeopardize that.There are a lot of stories out there and that's all they are stories. I am confident that the real perpetrator will be apprehended and he will be exonerated. He didn't commit this crime and its horrible that anyone would even think that it was him. I spend my nights praying for him and for this family. I have gone through periods of sadness and rage but all along in my heart I know that he will be returned back to us. That is the only solace I have.

I know Manny & have known him for many yearsand he's not the type of guy to do something so horrible.  A cold-blooded murderer is not going toturn himself in the next day.  A cold-bloodedmurderer would of beat it out of town. If he's got the money to hire an attorney to help him prove his innocence,he's got the money to run. PLEASE, don't pass judgment on a such a great guybefore a jury does.  How many timeshas the NYPD screwed up and arrested the wrong person??? That is exactly whatthis is, NYPD rushing to close a case and not performing their due diligenceand arresting the real scumbag that actually did it.  Manny is a kind & loving man.  He loves life and values it too much to take anotherpersons.  Time will tell & onceagain the NYPD & the NYDA's office will have yet another public apology tomake and explanation to give to try to excuse their slandering another innocentperson.  Unfortunately by that timewhoever did kill this poor guy will be in the wind, never to be seen or heardfrom again.  And Manny, he just beleft to try to pick up the pieces of a great life he once had.

This is a horrible horrible crime. My deepest condolences go out to Chris’ family and friends, especially his daughter. My heart is absolutely broken for her. I can only pray that one day, Chris’ loved ones are able to find some sort of solace with his passing, although I have no idea how. I can imagine how badly his loved ones want to have justice served and have his killer put away, as well they should. However, Manny is not that person. I have know Manny for many years and if you know him as his friends do, you would know that this is absolutely 100% NOT in his character. Manny is a loving and caring man. He is a man’s man. He has worked hard throughout his life to be able to afford the things he has. And that hard work, determination and ambition has provided him the ability to take care of himself as well as his mom. Success is not a crime, nor should it be hated on. Driving a nice car does not make you a murderer. If that is case then Jay Z is motha fuckin Manson. Manny stood up like a man and turned himself in, the next day. He was smart enough to do it with an attorney as anyone of you would of done. I didn’t know Chris. I’m not one of those ignorant people out there asking “why was he out till 5 am without his girl?” “Why wasn’t he home with his baby girl?” That’s not my place as it’s not anyone’s place to judge Manny that doesn’t in fact know him. None of you were there, none of you saw what happened – nor did I. None of us should pass judgment on someone that you don’t know nor on a crime that you didn’t see happen. Your anger is understandable, however your hatred & unfounded negative comments are not. I wish Chris’ soul peace and light on this it’s next journey.

Hey Jen, I don't know you but it was written perfectly and that is why I had to re post.  I just got tired of watching this man get bashed  without facts.  It's anger and very understandable but it needed to be stopped.  I am very sure that Manny would be humbled by the fact many are with him.

Manny will never do that. He is innocent. This story is very sketchy, and dont judge somebody on what the media say. RIP Christopher Adames and I hope that they find the real murderer.
