Tragic: Kenneth Bellando, 28, was found dead in an apparent suicide on March 12

 

An investment banker has been found dead in an apparent suicide in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

Kenneth Bellando’s death is the latest in a spate of suicides by finance professionals both around the globe and in New York.

He was found dead in a neighboring backyard after jumping off his six-story building at around 10.20pm on Wednesday March 12.

Police investigators told MailOnline that the case is still technically under investigation but there was no immediate suspicion of foul play and he was dead on arrival.

Bellando, 28, worked at Levy Capital Partners and was previously an investment bank analyst at JP Morgan and Paragon Capital Partners.

He was raised in Long Island before attending and graduating from Georgetown University in D.C.

He returned to New York after graduation and launched his career in finance.

Kenneth was not the only one in the family to work in the business world.
