Goldman Sachs Analyst Vanishes From Brooklyn Mirage: NYPD, Friends

WILLIAMSBURG, NY — A Goldman Sachs analyst and a young psychologist both vanished from a popular Brooklyn venue this summer, officials say.

One was found dead in the Newtown Creek, according to reports. The other, according to a location-tracking app, disappeared on a bridge that crosses it.

Senior Analyst John Castic, 27, disappeared after a Zeds Dead show at The Brooklyn Mirage in East Williamsburg early Saturday morning about 3 a.m., according to police and his best friend, Eamon Stenson.

“He’s an amazing guy and he’s a better friend,” Stenson said. “We all just want John back.”

His disappearance comes just seven weeks after psychologist Karl Clemente, also 27, vanished from the Stewart Avenue venue on June 11 about 10 p.m., police said.

Castic’s phone went dark soon after he left the venue, but the Find My app puts him on the Metropolitan Avenue Bridge at 3:50 a.m., Stenson said.

His friends have since searched the area near the Newtown Creek bridge and the venue sent videos of Castic leaving the Brooklyn Mirage to police, who Stenson says have been slow to respond.

But Castic — who stands 6 foot 3 inches tall and weighs about 180 pounds — remained missing as of Monday, according to the NYPD.

“I’m tired,” Stenson said. “I just want my friend back.”

Police have yet to release details about Clemente’s case, but family have told other news outlets and followers on GoFundMe that his body was pulled from Newtown Creek on June 16, five days after he disappeared from Brooklyn Mirage.

Police confirm a body was found in the creek that day, but did not provide a name.

According to GMA News Online, security footage captured Clemente running inside a lumber warehouse between Brooklyn Mirage and Newtown Creek.

Clemente was remembered by friends and family for his warmth and good spirit.

“I’ll forever remember how Karl brought the party wherever he went and how he could make anyone smile,” Kaitlin Jaeger wrote on the crowd funding site. “Karl was truly an amazing soul and he will definitely be missed.”

According to Stenson, Castic, originally from Chicago, is a hugely smart sports fan who’s always ready to be there for his friends. Another friend told Patch Castic is supposed to be a groomsman in a friend’s upcoming wedding.

“I’m in” is a very common phrase for Castic, Stenson said. “He tries his best to make sure everything and everybody has a good time.”

Many loved ones took to social media for help finding Castic, including Council Member Jen Gutiérrez, who posted about Castic’s case Monday afternoon.
