Former Jersey Shore mayor's son, daughter-in-law jump to their deaths in NYC

The suicide note recovered

The son and daughter-in-law of former Mayor Joseph C. Scarpelli committed suicide early Friday morning by jumping from a Manhattan office building, according to the New York Post and Brick Shorebeat.

The man had a typed note in his pocket that began with "WE HAD A WONDERFUL LIFE.Patricia and I had everything in life ... we can not live with the financial reality".

The couple had two kids, ages 19 and 20.

Fifty-three-year-old chiropractor Glenn Scarpelli and his better half Patricia Colant, 50, were discovered Friday morning.

"He said "mark my words, I'm going to be back here, and I'm not going to be alive", said the man's step-daughter, Ashley Gallagher.

The NY Post claimed the pair left suicide notes pleading for their kids to be cared for, citing an unnamed law enforcement source.

How gut-wrenchingly sad that a seemingly loving family, with a bright, albeit at times, a challenging future, has succumbed to a real American made tragedy.

Some rides reopening at OH fair after death
The Ohio Department of Agriculture said that 71 of the rides at the fair have been re-inspected and cleared to reopen after Gov. Bruce said fewer than half of the rides at the state fair are expected to begin running again Friday afternoon.

In the suicide note, the couple speaks of being in "financial peril" but begged that their children be taken care of.

Define financial reality? Define mental illness? The note was titled "We had a wonderful life".

Public records showed that Glenn owed about $213,000 to the federal government and almost $42,000 to the state in unpaid taxes dating back to 2003. Yet the couple still afforded to send their two children to elite private schools.

It happened on 33rd Street in Midtown Manhattan between Park and Madison Avenues.

A neighbor of the Scarpellis, who did not wish to be named, said she occasionally passed the couple, who lived on the third floor, in the hallway and said they seemed like nice people, who were quiet and kept to themselves.

The tragic incident took place as the GOP's efforts to repeal Obamacare fell apart on the floor of the Senate.
