JPMorgan employee said murders wife, turns knife on himself


A tragic story.

A JPMorgan Chase employee strangled and stabbed his wife to death before turning the knife on himself, according to police who are treating the couple’s death in Bergen County, New Jersey as a murder-suicide.

Bloomberg News reports that Michael A. Tabacchi, 27, and his wife, Iran Pars Tabacchi, 41, were found dead Friday about 11:30 p.m. in the bedroom of their Closter, Manhattan, home after a 911 call placed by the husband’s father, Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said in an interview.

Autopsy results on Sunday showed the wife died of strangulation and a stab wound to the chest while Michael Tabacchi died from a single self-inflicted stab to the chest, he said.

Tabacchi is said to have been an associate for JPMorgan in its global custody product unit.
