What led to Gina Mari O’Brien a visiting Utah woman jumping to her suicide death from a luxury high rise Manhattan apartment Saturday night?
NYC authorities have identified Gina Mari O’Brien a visiting 36 year old Utah resident as the individual who late Saturday night jumped to her suicide death from a luxury high rise Manhattan apartment.
Cops said the woman had gone up to the roof of the 26 story Symphony House on West 56th st near Broadway before plunging to her death below circa 11pm.
The nypost reported the forlorn woman being found lying face down after a resident saw ‘something’ fall past his window, where they heard a ‘loud noise’.
Responding officials told of O’Brien’s body landing on the building 9th story terrace.
Police found O’Brien’s backpack on the roof, containing her passport, money, and other personal belongings.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the woman was staying at the Symphony House, how she managed to get to the roof and what may have compelled her jump the moment she did.
Also not clear is how long O’Brien had been in NYC and what brought the Utah woman to the east cost big city.
Police said the ‘incident’ is being investigated as a suicide, though no note was found.
Eerily, a regard of O’Brien’s Facebook wall postings showed a fascination with high rise Manhattan buildings. Three to four high rise buildings were pictured on the woman’s wall as recently in the month of October.
It wasn’t immediately clear if relatives or family and friends the woman may have had stepped forward….
