Paula Sladewski's Boyfriend Says Sketch Looks Like Club Space Bouncer



Kevin Klym, the boyfriend of murdered tourist Paula Sladewski, went on the Today show this morning and said the recently released sketch of the man supposedly last seen with her looks like a bouncer from Club Space.

In his first TV interview, he placed blame on Club Space. He said the bouncer in question double-ID'd Sladewski when they first entered the club even though she didn't look underage.

He then said the same bouncer escorted him out of the club. Klym says, despite previous reports, he never had an argument with his girlfriend.

He said Sladewski might have been slightly intoxicated but was capable of making good decisions and had her ID and debit card on her.
