According to TMZ, 55-year-old fashion designer Kate Spade was found dead inside her New York apartment from what is being classified as a suicide by hanging.
A housekeeper found Spade’s body around 10:20 AM and says that she had a scarf tied around her neck and the bedroom door handle. It is reported that there was a note left.
Kate Spade launched her line of handbags in 1993 which eventually exploded into a full clothing and accessories line.
According to the NYTimes, Spade sold her company in 2006 to Neiman Marcus for an undisclosed amount and was bought last year by Coach for $2.4 billion says the BBC.
Sounds like there will be something in the note to explain what was going in her head.
