NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: According to the city’s medical examiner’s office, multimillionaire pharmaceutical executive Gigi Jordan, who was found guilty of manslaughter in the death of her 8-year-old son, allegedly killed herself by placing a plastic bag filled with nitrogen gas over her head.

On December 30, just hours after US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor issued a decision that was anticipated to send Jordan back to prison, the 62-year-old was discovered dead inside her Brooklyn home at around 12.30 am. The Chief Medical Examiner for NYC determined the death to be a suicide on Wednesday. According to the report, the cause of the death was “asphyxia caused by the displacement of oxygen by nitrogen gas and the covering of the head with a plastic bag.” Norman Siegel, Jordan’s attorney, said of her passing, “It’s incredibly sad. Gigi Jordan contributed a lot to society. She ultimately lost out on the chance to make a contribution to society.

Who are the ex-husbands of Gigi Jordan? A wealthy pharmaceutical executive claimed her first husband had intended to kill her.
