Dress resembling Lupita Nyong'o's missing dress found in same hotel

A white dress that strongly resembles the custom gown stolen from Lupita Nyong’o’s hotel room earlier this week was found Friday under a bathroom sink in the same hotel, a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s official said.
The dress found at a West Hollywood hotel “greatly resembles” the pearl-adorned Calvin Klein Collection by Francisco Costa dress the actress wore to Sunday’s Academy Awards, sheriff’s spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said.
The gown is valued at $150,000 but some reports suggest ‘pearls’ may be fake, causing the thief to abandon the dress.
Detectives were trying to verify whether the recovered dress is the same one Nyong’o wore, she said.

In a statement to Women’s Wear Daily, Costa said everyone at Calvin Klein was thrilled to learn that the dress may have been found.
“Once it’s returned to us, we will be able to have the dress restored and archived, as it now represents an important moment for the brand,” Costa said in his statement.

Detectives found it in a black garment bag stashed underneath the bathroom counter.

73 year old Turgut Oymen, a farmer from Sivas Suşehri in Turkey, received a heart-breaking phone call from his 70 year old wife, Nese who had been staying in Istanbul for the past year for treatment for an injury to her foot.

Nese told her husband that she was leaving him for a  55-year-old doctor who she had met and fallen in love and was not returning home.
According to Haber 3, Turgut then went to a nearby river, Derebağ creek and chopped his penis himself, flinging it into the water before calling an ambulance.
He told doctors he castrated himself because “he felt it (his penis) was useless and he felt like he was no longer a man."
He  is currently being treated for depression.
