Ghastly Murder – Attempted Suicide at posh NYC Peninsula hotel.
Gigi Jordan, a multi-million pharmaceutical executive and socialite, was found in her Peninsula hotel suite “babbling incoherently” after trying to commit suicide, and having killed her 8 year old Autistic son Jude by providing a fatal dose of pills.
A multimillionaire mom fed her 8-year-old son a fatal dose of pills, then spent the night with his body inside a ritzy midtown hotel before a failed suicide try, police said.
Gigi Jordan was “babbling incoherently” after police kicked in the door of her $2,300-a-night suite at The Peninsula hotel to find her son Jude faceup on the bed and foaming at the mouth, police sources said.
Jordan, 49, was surrounded Friday by hundreds of prescription drug pills and a rambling note expressing her love for the small boy who police say died at his mother’s hands.
“I can tell you the only true happy moment in my life was when Jude was born,” she wrote. “He was all the love I ever had in my life.
“He was the only thing that made me feel life was something of beauty, ever.”
A police source said Jordan used a sofa to block the suite’s bathroom door.

In the suicide note, she wrote that her son Jude was in “constant pain” and that she’d hoped “Jude [was in] a better place.” She also “mentioned speaking with a Wyoming child porn investigator about the sexual abuse of kids,” and cited the assistance of an ex-FBI agent. In an already bizarre and tragic case, this part sticks out:
- Ex-FBI agent Flint Waters “told me many rich people are involved,” Jordan wrote. “Many wealthy guys trade child porn like a hobby.” Waters did not return a call Friday night.
