47-year-old hedge manager who killed himself by leaping from his ninth-floor luxury apartment in the historic Apthorp Building was “under a lot of meds,” a police source told the NY Post.

Kevin Bell, head of credit risk at Arrowgrass Capital, leaped from the window while his family was in the apartment. He left a suicide note saying that he had been depressed.

“The family is hysterical,” the source said. He was under a lot of meds. He did not give a specific reason why he jumped, but he was depressed.”

Bell had previously worked for prominent banks and hedge funds including Citadel, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank and Saba Capital.

Bell landed on scaffolding that had been set up in front of the building.

“A couple of our residents reported hearing a thud,” one building worker said. “The daughter of a tenant looked out the window and she told her mother there was a man lying down on the scaffolding.”

“He was bleeding. Some of the residents are pretty shaken up.”

Bell was pronounced dead on the scene.
