Citigroup MD death - foul play now thought unlikely

Black

Shawn D. Miller, a Citigroup executive found dead in his apartment bathtub in New York City earlier this week, probably killed himself, police said.

Miller, 42, global head of environmental and social risk management for New York-based Citigroup, was found at his home at 120 Greenwich Street in lower Manhattan on November 18 with a neck laceration, the New York City Police Department said in a statement Wednesday. Medics responded to the scene and pronounced him dead on arrival.

The building’s doorman had gone to the apartment to check on Miller after his partner had been unable to reach him, police said Wednesday.

While the cause of death is pending toxicology reports, investigators suspect Miller killed himself, Detective Martin Speechley, an NYPD spokesman, said in a phone interview Thursday.
