Couple Jumps to Death in NYC Over Financial Troubles

"A pair of Manhattan parents claiming financial woes jumped to their deaths early Friday — leaving double suicide notes pleading that their two kids be cared for, law enforcement sources told The Post.

The bodies of 53-year-old chiropractor Glenn Scarpelli and his wife, 50-year-old Patricia Colant, were found in the middle of the street on 33rd Street between Park and Madison avenues in Murray Hill after the pair jumped from the ninth-floor window of a 17-story corner office building on Madison Avenue at about 5:45 a.m., police said.

Glenn, whose office was on the same floor of the building where the couple jumped, titled the suicide note found in his pocket, “WE HAD A WONDERFUL LIFE.” It was typed on a piece of white paper.

His wife also had a suicide note in her pocket that read, “in sum and substance,” according to a source, “‘Our kids are upstairs, please take care of them.’”

“Patricia and I had everything in life,” the man’s note read. But it also touched on the couple’s “financial spiral” and how “we can not live with” the “financial reality,” sources said.

A law enforcement source at the scene told The Post that authorities at first believed that the couple struggled with health care costs. But an NYPD spokesman said later that there was no mention of medical-cost struggles in the notes.

The couple was in debt, another source said.

Area workers who witnessed the aftermath of the tragic incident were stunned.

“When I got here at 6:05 a.m., I walked by dead bodies on the ground,” said a woman who would only identify herself as Kazi, and who works at the nearby 7-Eleven store.

“I was scared. I’ve never seen dead bodies before,” she said.

Another man who works at the building next door said that when he heard police sirens, he looked out the window and saw the two bodies.

“Insane,” said the man, who identified himself as Harry."

Given that people saw them on their way to work, there's gotta be some pics floating around...

Sometimes things just...come to an untidy end.

Re: Couple Jumps to Death in NYC Over Financial Troubles

They had a debt of over a quarter of a million, mostly back taxes. all since the last 19 years. They're kids were in private schools and his chiropractor business, where his wife also worked, closed recently.

Seems to me they were living the look at us, we're rich but don't pay (enough) taxes life and now when they were forced to do so all the money was already spent and they choose the easy way out.

The dark side of a society where everything is about money.
