Punk Rock Romeo and Juliet: Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen

At about 11 a.m. on October 12, 1978, the desk clerk at the Chelsea Hotel in New York City received a call from outside the hotel: “There’s trouble in Room 100.” A bellboy entered the room and found the scantily clad, blood-smeared body of 20-year-old Nancy Spungen in the bathroom. Her boyfriend, punk rocker Sid Vicious, was pacing the halls, high on heroin, his face smeared with tears.
