Bean-Viega Split
Accompanied by Tragedy

After 13 years, out former Major League Baseball player Billy Bean and his partner, Efrain Veiga, have ended their relationship, according to The Miami Herald.

After 13 years, out former Major League Baseball player Billy Bean and his partner, Efrain Veiga, have ended their relationship, according to The Miami Herald. The two have been living separately, and the home they shared is up for sale. They insist that the split, while difficult, has been amicable. "Sometimes things don't work out," Viega told the Herald. "There's still love."

Bean has moved on from baseball to become a real estate agent, and Viega is a well-known restaurateur. He also recently opened a personal chef and hospitality training business.

Adding to the tragedy of the situation, a man Viega invited to his own place one evening in May was discovered dead the next morning. Frederico Schostak, 26, went home with Viega "for a sexual encounter," but the next morning Viega was unable to wake him. The death appears to have been caused by an overdose of GHB, an illegal date-rape drug, which Schostak had claimed to have in his bottle of Propel water the night before. Police, called by Viega, found Schostak in the bedroom "on the bed, completely undressed."

The death has not yet been classified as the Miami-Dade medical examiner's office is still working on the toxicology report. (The Advocate)
