    The medical examiner will determine a cause of death.

    A young lighting designer was found dead on the floor of his Manhattan apartment, dressed in a latex outfit with his hands bound, but there appeared to be no sign of a break-in, police said.
           
    Alejandro Bulaevsky, 26, was last seen Sunday. Worried relatives summoned the building superintendent, who entered the apartment and discovered the gruesome scene.

    Bulaevsky was found wearing a black suit, apparently latex or some type of plastic, and a mask, his hands bound, a law enforcement official said. The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.

    Police said it didn't appear anything was stolen and the apartment was not in disarray.
           
    Bulaevsky's profile on a company Web site says he was a graduate of Parsons The New School For Design and worked on many restaurants and hotels in the city, including the Jumeirah Essex House on Central Park South.
