Pharma Exec Convicted of Killing Her own Son Found Dead Hours After Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor Revokes Her Bail

Gigi Jordan

A multimillionaire pharma executive who killed her own autistic son nearly 13 years ago was found dead after the Supreme Court ordered her back to prison.

Gigi Jordan, 62, likely took her own life just hours after Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor revoked her bail.

The 62-year-old NYC socialite was convicted of manslaughter in 2014 after killing her own son in an upscale New York hotel room in 2010.

According to reports, Jordan was sentenced to 18 years in prison but a judge in 2020 granted her bail as she appealed for a new trial.

Jordan was reportedly found in a bathtub Friday morning with a note left next to the body.

A medical examiner will determine whether Jordan committed suicide.

Fox News reported:

Gigi Jordan, the multimillionaire pharmaceutical executive convicted of killing her 8-year-old autistic son inside an upscale New York City hotel room, was found dead at home on Friday morning, reports say.

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor had issued an order hours earlier revoking Jordan’s bail.

The 62-year-old was convicted of manslaughter in 2014 in connection to the death of her son, Jude Mirra.

The socialite from Belgium allegedly admitted to using a syringe to plunge a lethal cocktail of painkillers, tranquilizers and sleeping pills mixed with alcohol and orange juice down the boy’s throat inside their $2,300-a-night suite at the luxury Peninsula Hotel in Manhattan in February 2010.

Part of her defense was that she intended a murder-suicide, as Jordan also ingested several medications herself and emailed a relative, who reportedly alerted authorities. But prosecutors argued that as her autistic son was dying, she used her laptop to pull $125,000 from his trust fund, N.Y. Daily News reported.

Jordan was sentenced to 18 years in prison on the manslaughter charge, but a Manhattan federal judge in 2020 granted bail amid her ongoing appeals for a new trial.

Her appeals centered on 15 minutes, during which the courtroom was briefly closed to the public during her trial.
