Investment banker who jumped to his death from Times Square bar had run-ins with police over money
A Connecticut financier who jumped to his death from the roof of a Times Square bar on Wednesday evening had filed for divorce the day before, and had explosive rows about money several years ago, it has emerged.
Dale Cheney, 46, threw himself from the 54th floor bar above the Hyatt hotel – the second person to take their own life from the bar in three months.
But on Thursday it emerged that he had filed for divorce the day before his suicide, and had such significant money problems police were called to the house amid rows.
A NYPD source told The New York Post that they were called twice in 2008 to the Upper East Side apartment where he was living at the time.
They were called for domestic disturbances, which they noted were about money.
Cheney moved out of Manhattan, to Connecticut, in 2010, property records show.
They bought their home in 2018 for $1.6 million.
Lauren Cheney was not at the property on Thursday, the paper reported.
