A prominent 47-year-old hedge fund trader was killed when he jumped from a luxury apartment building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, in an apparent suicide, authorities told the NY Post.
Kevin Bell, most recently head of Credit Risk at Arrowgrass Capital, jumped from a ninth-floor kitchen window at the Apthorp building on West End Avenue near West 79th Street around 7:20 a.m. He landed on scaffolding that was set up in front of the building and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Bell left a note indicating he had been depressed, the source said. He had a history of depression, the source added.
According to the NY Post, Bell left behind a wife and two daughters. His family was at home when he jumped, according to the source. “The family is hysterical. He was under a lot of meds. He did not give a specific reason why he jumped, but he was depressed,” the source said.
