    Huffington Post has a ton of comments. So, this woman wrote or called her aunt in Belgium and told her she was going to kill her son and herself and aunt called NYC police.

    Looks like dad is in Pharmaceuticals and lives in Pennsylvania.

    Sad. Sad. Sad. Poor little guy had autism. Now mom if she survives lives with this? Lord only knows what was going through her mind. Sad.

    Ms. Jordan’s ex-husband, Raymond A. Mirra Jr., was notified about the boy’s death by the police in Pennsylvania, where he lives, said Patrick J. Egan, a lawyer in Philadelphia for Mr. Mirra. He was not the boy’s father.

    Mr. Mirra and Ms. Jordan were married in December 1998 and divorced in November 2001, according to public records in Nevada. Shortly after their divorce, Ms. Jordan married a man investigators believe was Jude’s father, according to the public records.

    Murdering her own innocent son was quite a selfish act.

    Thank you so much Fifth. My bad assumption.

    I wonder who this poor boy's father is?

    Thank you again. Sorry for the mix-up. It's weird how so many times we see a parent in this act of desperation murder/suicide, but they end up living. How's that work. One has to wonder. The poor boy is foaming at the mouth dead, but mom is overdosed. In bad shape no doubt, but still very much alive.

    Oh boy. I'm not sure how reliable this source is, but they have an intended suicide note.

    On Page 2 of the note Ms. Jordan said her son, Jude was in constant pain. Then she goes into believing he was the victim of rape. She says many wealthy men trade child pornography like it's no big deal.

    At the end of the note she does try and make some sort of absolution saying it's a sin to kill, and stuff about Jesus.

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/ny_c...nt_letter.html

    O.K. M.s Jordan says in the letter she discussed this issue with Flint Waters who is an ex-FBI agent who now is the head of Wyomings internet child pornography investigative team. He's developed software to track child pornographers online. He's been on Oprah. Calls to Agent Waters have not been returned.

    Whoa!

    I feel terrible for the aunt in Belgium. Can you imagine her panic, and her feelings of complete helplessness getting that kind of phone call, and then trying to reach the authorities in the United States before it was too late?

    And then, having it be too late?

    My heart goes out to the aunt. How tragically sad.

    I'm sorry, but I'd take anything this woman claims with a grain of salt. She very well may have been delusional.

    I'm not saying her allegations shouldn't be checked out, but in my mind, she lost all credibility when she murdered an innocent child. Her own innocent child.

    The same thing I thought, SB.

    O.K. it gets weirder. She marries Emil Tzekov only six days after the divorce from Mirra. Emil Tzekov has been notified of his son's death. He has not seen his son or his son's mother (they divorced) in about a year. He resides in California.

    I look this guy up, and here ya go.

    Trust me I'm all about Yoga. Never got as far as getting into the Tantra and such, but this guy is well have a look. Again, he is the father of an innocent murdered child. I just wonder how she met this guy. A search of names doesn't list him as Emil. I'm sure it's a long ethnic name he shortened.

    Maybe he taught her Yoga? He belongs to a group called Valentino Brothers. They have a .com. They're flexibility seems to be a huge factor in their success. Again his child has been murdered. It's just so sad for this little boy. Meanwhile who knows what's going on in this woman's head?

    This happened across the street from my office. I heard the sirens all day and there were about 8 police cars, 1 ambulance and 1 fire truck. Then later on, the place was inundated with media trucks. It breaks my heart, that poor, poor child.

    What could drive someone to such a desperate and cruel act?

    An 8-year-old boy has been found dead at the Peninsula Hotel at 55th Street and Fifth Avenue. His mother, allegedly a "socialite" named Gigi Jordan, 49, who lives at the Trump International on the West Side, checked into the hotel with the boy on Wednesday and left "alarming e-mail messages" with a relative in Belgium, who contacted hotel management.

    February 5, 2010, 2:21 pm Boy Found Dead in Midtown Hotel

    Police detectives are investigating the suspected killing of a 9-year-old boy who was discovered dead in the Peninsula Hotel in Midtown Manhattan on Friday afternoon along with a severely incapacitated woman relative, the authorities said.

    Officers responded to the hotel, at 700 Fifth Avenue, off 55th Street, after relatives of the woman called the police to report that she had contacted them and that they were worried some harm might have come to the child, the police said.

    Officers were redirected to the hotel after going to her apartment, on Central Park West, said Paul J. Browne, the Police Department’s chief spokesman. The boy was dead when they arrived, possibly after being given some type of prescription drugs, Mr. Browne said

    Autistic Boy, 8, Found Murdered in the Peninsula Hotel, Mom Next to Him February 5, 2010 2:25pm



    An 8-year-old autistic boy was found dead in a five-star hotel room on Fifth Avenue Friday, police said, possibly murdered at the hands of his mother who was discovered unconscious on the floor next to him.

    Authorities found the lifeless body of the boy — identified by friends as Jude — lying on the bed of a room at the Hotel Peninsula about noon Friday. His mother, identified by police sources as Gigi Jordan, 49, was found unconscious beside him.

    Prescription pills and papers were found littered around the hotel room, according to police sources.

    "That poor baby, poor Jude," said a distraught Lisa Battaglia, whose husband Victor used to work for Jordan at one of her many pharmaceutical companies.

    "He was autistic. He was her life. She did everything for him. Everything was around this child, she was doing research constantly, she was a nurse by trade and she had doctor contacts all over."

    A relative in Belgium apparently called the police after the mother sent a terrifying email threatening to kill herself and the child, which led the NYPD to track him to the hotel room after first looking for the pair at their apartment at the Trump International Towers, on Central Park South.

    Authorities had to force their way into the hotel room through a double-locked door and a chair that had been propped against it, police sources said.

    "This is not the Gigi I knew," said Battaglia, who said she had not spoken to Jordan in years.

    "She was so devoted to her son. Somehow she must have been overwhelmed. All I can think of is that she couldn't take it anymore and she thought no one could take care of her child. Knowing Gigi, I don't think that it was over a man or a divorce. I think this was over her child."

    Jordan, a Belgium native who had lived all over the U.S., went to great lengths to become pregnant, succeeding in 2001 at age 40, friends said
