Manhattan Socialite Gigi Jordan Kills Son, 8, in Failed Murder-Suicide

gigi-jordan-mirra-kills-son-suicide-peninsula-hotelGigi Jordon, a prominent Manhattan socialite and frequent contributor to the Republican party, killed her 8-year-old son in a botched murder-suicide at New York’s Peninsula hotel.

Jordan, who was reportedly distraught over her failing marriage, was “babbling incoherently” when police found her on the floor of her hotel room inside the posh hotel on Fifth Ave. shortly before noon, sources say.

Sources say that her son – who was dead about a day – was face-up on the floor with prescription pills scattered around the pricey room. Several notes were also found inside the room, although at this time it’s unclear if they were suicide notes.

The socialite, who lives in the Trump International Hotel & Towers, checked into the five-star hotel with son Jude on Wednesday night, paid the bill in cash, ordered room service and never left the room, sources said.

Jordan had emailed an aunt in Belgium threatening to kill herself and the boy. The aunt contacted the NYPD who eventually traced Jordan to the Peninsula hotel where she was found with her dead son.
