Ex-Pharma Exec Who Killed Son with Autism, Then Was Sprung from Prison Is Found Dead

Gigi Jordan, the mogul mother who killed her child in a Manhattan lodging in 2010, was found dead Friday morning in a Brooklyn home that she was leasing. She was 62.

She was found dead in a bath not long after 12:05 a.m. on Saturday, NBC New York reports. There was a note close by.

Jordan, a pharma chief, had confessed to allowing her 8-year-old child, Jude, a deadly portion of meds with a needle in a lodging in 2010.

She then took different meds herself and messaged an overall who cautioned specialists.

During her 2015 preliminary, she said she killed her child out of “a mother’s adoration,” in the trepidation that her most memorable spouse could kill her.

She likewise said that she was saving the kid from being gone over to his natural dad, her subsequent spouse, whom she associated with kid misuse.

“I believed that him should be protected and settled at any expense,” Jordan told CBS New York in 2014, adding that she endeavored to end her own life in the wake of taking her child’s.

Both of the men denied her claims and were never accused of any wrongdoing.

After she was condemned in 2015 to serve 18 years, Jordan started her allure. She served almost five years prior to being set free from prison in 2020 after her conviction was upset on procedural details. Her lawyers had contended that one of the appointed authority’s decisions had disregarded Jordan’s 6th Amendment right to a “expedient and public preliminary.”

Jordan confronted another preliminary. She was free on bail. Yet, after a meeting on Thursday — a day prior to her demise — her bail was repudiated by High Court Equity Sonia Sotomayor.

She was booked to get back to care while looking for her new preliminary. Specialists have not uncovered a reason for death. A post-mortem will be performed.
