Designer Kate Spade found Dead!

Fashion icon Kate Spade has been found dead of an apparent suicide in her Manhattan home, law enforcement sources tell News 4. She was 55 years old.

A housekeeper found Spade hanged from a red scarf on a bedroom door at her Park Avenue residence Tuesday morning, law enforcement sources and officials say.

he NYPD confirmed Spade was found unresponsive at her Park Avenue address on the Upper East Side shortly after 10 a.m. There was a note left at the scene, NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said, but he declined to elaborate on it.

According to the Associated Press, the note had a message for Spade’s 13-year-old daughter, who was at school at the time — it wasn’t her fault. Spade’s longtime husband Andy was in the house, the AP said.

It’s not clear how long Spade had been dead before housekeeping found her body. Officials caution the investigation is in its preliminary stages and the medical examiner will determine the exact cause and manner of death.

A call to Spade’s representatives was not immediately returned.
