New York City police say the 8-year-old autistic son of socialite Gigi Jordan was found dead and his mother near death in a room at the Peninsula, a five-star Manhattan hotel. Police said they're investigating the death as a possible murder and attempted suicide.
A police official has told the New York Post that Jordan's son -- identified by cops as Michael Jude -- was lying in bed wearing his pajamas and surrounded by thousands of prescription pills scattered on the floor and bed. The boy appeared to have been dead "for a while" and is believed to have overdosed on the pills sometime Thursday. Police found Jordan, 49, conscious and sitting on the floor alongside the bed. The official said she had a faint pulse and was "babbling incoherently."
