Couple Jump To Their Deaths From 17-story Building Over $213k Debt To Govt (Photos)

A New York couple took a rare decision on Friday morning to jump to their deaths from a 17-story office building after battling for years to pay their debts.

53-year old Chiropractor Glenn Scarpelli and his wife Patricia, 50, jumped from a window of the ninth-floor office around 5:45 am, and landed in the East 33rd Street, near Madison Avenue, Police said.

According to Police, the office was the Chiropractor’s former place of work, which had recently been permanently closed.

A note found inside a Ziploc bag in the woman’s pocket read: “Our kids are upstairs, please take care of them.”

The Ziploc bag also contained a letter from the Chiropractor along with their ID cards.

The man’s letter read: “WE HAD A WONDERFUL LIFE,” before touching on their spiraling debt.

The note continued: “Patricia and I had everything in life” but “we can not live with” the “financial reality,” sources said.

It was learned that the Scarpellis had a history of financial problems and had been pursued for dozens of outstanding tax liens by federal and city authorities since at least 1998.

Public records showed that Glenn owed about $213,000 to the federal government and nearly $42,000 to the state in unpaid taxes dating back to 2003.

The couple left behind their two children, Isabella, 20, and Joseph, 19.
