Bassist Sid Vicious of the rock band 'The Sex Pistols' poses for his mugshot after being arrested by New York City police for allegedly murdering his girlfriend Nancy Spungen on December 8, 1978 in New York City, New York.
On October 12, 1978 a Hotel Chelsea bellboy discovered the body of Nancy Spungen, 20, on the floor of her Room 100 bathroom. She had been stabbed once in the abdomen. Spungen had been living at the Chelsea with her boyfriend, Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious. Vicious confessed to killing his girlfriend, then later changed his story. He was arrested, but released on bail. After a suicide attempt and rehab, Vicious died of a heroin overdose on February 2, 1979 before the case could go to trial.
On Oct. 12th 1978 Nancy was found dead from a stab wound in the bathroom (shown in gallery later) in panties and bra. The knife that killed her was Sid's and he was arrested for the murder. Whether he did it or not is debatable. Deborah Spungen thinks Sid did it, but on instructions from Nancy and that she in all intents and purposes killed herself. In the Record Mirror of April8yth 1978 Nancy said: "I'll kill myself as soon as the first wrinkle appears... I don't want to lose my looks."
