Philly-area dominatrix has second boyfriend die under strange circumstances

For the second time in three years Edythe Maa, a renowned dominatrix known as Jade Vixen who was also once a Ph.D. student at Penn, has had a close male companion die under unusual circumstances in the Philadelphia area.

In 2008, her Manhattan lawyer boyfriend with an S&M fetish, Anthony Ottaviano, 40, was shot to death in North Philadelphia by one of Maa's obsessed fans, David Krieg, 42, who then kidnapped Maa. He held her for 4 hours before letting her go and shooting himself to death.

Last month on Aug. 18, Peter Stelzenmuller, a 49-year-old Drexel Hill avionics specialist, and Maa's "close companion," died in his house while "testing scuba equipment," according to his obituary.

Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood confirmed that Stelzenmuller was wearing a "rubber swimming suit" when he was found dead in the attic of his home. While no foul play is immediately suspected, Chitwood said he believes there is "more to it" than Stelzenmuller just trying on scuba equipment.

According to a source, Stelzenmuller had a rubber fetish.

The Delaware County Medical Examiner's Office conducted an autopsy on Stelzenmuller but a representative said the results of that autopsy are pending toxicological reports.
