A New York man jumped to his death from atop a 17-story hotel on Saturday after his young daughter was found dead at the home of his estranged wife.
According to the New York Post, Mohammad Torabi was found dead at about 1:20 p.m. on the ground near the Renaissance New York Hotel 57 in Midtown.
His estranged wife, 30-year-old Tina Torabi, was arrested on suspicion of felony assault after Kian, their son, was found with extensive and serious injuries and Elaina, their daughter, was killed in a beating on Wednesday.
The family reportedly moved to New York from Texas.
She is expected to face additional charges when authorities receive the results of an autopsy performed on the girl, Kian’s twin sister.
The girl suffered injuries to her pelvis, abdomen and skull. Police say she had multiple other wounds on various parts of her body.
Her brother was hospitalized with a fractured tibia, pelvis and ribs as well as lung contusions, adrenal hemorrhage and wounds including a bite mark.
As of the latest reports available, he remained in critical but stable condition at the Cohen Children’s Medical Center intensive-care unit.
The Post cites sources close to the situation who indicate the suspect’s deceased husband had been abusive toward Tina Torabi in the past.
He had allegedly introduced narcotics into the relationship.
