Sad news – Peabody suicide

I’m reading reports on Twitter that someone jumped off the rooftop of the Peabody Hotel today and committed suicide.  A good friend of mine walked through the hotel about an hour ago and happened upon the crime scene.  The official @PeabodyMemphis account has said the person was not a guest or employee, and is asking for all questions to be directed to the police rather than the hotel at this time.  As far as I know this is not a joke.
