Banker falls to death from 26th floor window

Carnation

Sad to report.

A Merrill Lynch analyst is said to have ate a handful of magic mushrooms in his Manhattan apartment on Sunday - and then plunged to his death out of his 26th floor window.

The New York Post reports that Alex Lagowitz, 23, landed on a third floor, outdoor patio around 10 a.m. - straight down from his bedroom at Windsor Court on East 31st Street and Lexington Avenue in Murray Hill, according to police.

“He was really high on mushrooms,” a police source said, explaining that Lagowitz had “jumped out the window.”

The newspaper's sources said that Lagowitz, who is from Livingston, NJ, and was a star golfer on the Colgate University team, took four grams of the drug - which is enough to cause hallucinations.
