    Socialite Gigi Jordan slays son, 8, in failed murder-suicide at Manhattan's Peninsula

    This one immediately reminded me of something from The Shining. Really disturbing.



    _____________________

    A Manhattan socialite, distraught over her failing marriage, killed her 8-year-old son in a botched murder-suicide at a luxury Midtown hotel, police sources said Friday.
    Gigi Jordan, 49, was "babbling incoherently" when police found her on the floor of Room 1154 inside the Peninsula hotel on Fifth Ave. shortly before noon, the sources said.
    Her son - who was dead about a day - was face-up on the floor near his mom, with prescription pills scattered around the pricey room, the sources said.
    The dead child was "foaming at the mouth" from an apparent overdose, a police source said.
    There were also several notes left inside the room, although it was unclear if they were suicide notes, the sources said.
    "She lawyers up right away," one police source said. "She won't answer any questions."
    Jordan, who lives in the Trump International Hotel & Towers on Columbus Circle, was apparently upset over the end of her marriage when she checked into the five-star hotel with son Jude on Wednesday night, sources said.
    She paid the bill in cash, ordered room service and never left the room after arriving, police said.
    Jordan kept in e-mail contact with an aunt in Belgium, threatening to kill herself and the boy, sources said. The terrified aunt contacted the NYPD, which sent officers to the woman's West Side home.
    Jordan was eventually traced to the Peninsula, where she was found with her dead son.
    The woman was taken to Bellevue Hospital at about 12:45 p.m., police said. She had ingested some of the pills, but survived the suicide attempt.
    The luxury hotel at 55th St. caters to upscale tourists with its spacious $600-a-night rooms.
    The 1905 Beaux Arts building features amenities from a glass-enclosed rooftop pool to its renowned three-level health club and spa.

    You can't "nu uh" death. That's bad debating.

    They don't have the death penalty in NY I don't think. How come they always "want to kill themselves" but they kill the kid and then end up alive. such a crock of shit. I hope being rich doesn't get her out of this.

    This is just sad, so unfair to her young son.

    She was a mulit-millionaire, a former president of a pharmecutical company. Big bucks here.

    Presumably, she had access to mental health therapy.

    This is so tragic, why kill the son, if she was tired of it all, off herself but leave the boy to live his life. I hate Socialites, the word just irritates the hell outta me.

    I can't even imagine hurting my child. He's 8 and I swear it makes me a nervous wreck just making sure I get the right dosage of children s Tylenol. What a wicked woman?

    Crimes like this against children should automatically carry the death sentence, no matter where they're committed.
    Send 'em somewhere where the sentence can be carried out and just give it to 'em. They deserve nothing less.

    It's a Farmers Union Iced Coffee, or it's nothing.

    She'll probably just plead insanity and get out it.

    I've smoked a lot of pot and I've yet to die from it.
    And yet I can go and get deadly drugs in a legal way.
    Go figure.

    You can at least share LOL. I've never tried pot, but been tempted to for these damn migraines.

    It just amazes me how alcohol and prescription drugs can be obtained legally and look at the damage they can do but yet there is not one shred of evidence that pot is dangerous and deadly.

    What does access to prescription drugs and legalization of pot have to do with this? She couldve strangled her kid to death with her bare hands or shot him with a gun.
    Should we ban hands (I already know your stance on gun control)?
    Im not sure where you are going with this.
    Suck it.

    Thanks! Those are my son's furbabies. They were both abandoned on our street and are the best dogs we have ever had. They went from running loose, never fed, never loved to spoiled rotten indoor-loving, car ride-loving little guys in no time flat! Go figure

    Damn the scumbags who abandoned them! Thank goodness they found you

    I love animals very much, I have 3 cats (all girls) and they are the queens of the house.

    Entirely too easy. I would stick her in a cell plastered with pics of the victim and a rolling video feed fo the rest of her miserable life, she wouldn't be able to get away from what she's done. She would probably end up managing to rectify the siuation herself before too long.

    I like your idea of punishment for this poor excuse selfish bitch of a mother.

    Isn't 49 a little old to be called a socialite? I always pictured them like Paris Hilton.

    If the child was mute and non-responsive, how'd she know he was sexually tortured by his father? Also, I read that as he lay dying, she transferred $125,000 from his trust fund, into her account. Not good.
