The woman found dead with her young son at a hotel in midtown Manhattan reportedly pushed her son from a 25th-floor window before taking a suicide leap.
The New York Daily News reports that Stephanie Adams, 46, leapt from her penthouse suite at the Gotham hotel after she pushed her 7-year-old son Vincent out the window. The medical examiner’s office told the newspaper that Adams’ death was ruled a suicide while Vincent’s death was ruled a homicide.
Both Adams and her son reportedly died of blunt force trauma.
Adams was a former Playboy model who was the magazine’s “Miss November” in 1992, and was reportedly going through a messy divorce. She had been married to Dr. Charles Nicolai of Wall Street Chiropractic and Wellness.
The Daily News reports that Adams had requested a judge to allow her to take Vincent to Spain, but the judge denied her request.
No suicide note was found in the hotel room.
