Hedge fund manager with Greenwich ties dies in NY

Charles Murphy, 56, who joined John Paulson's firm in 2009, fell from a room in the luxury Sofitel New York Hotel in midtown on Monday afternoon. Murphy's Fairfield Greenwich fund had invested more than $7 billion with Madoff before it became known in 2008 that Madoff was running a Ponzi scheme.

Charles Murphy was pronounced dead after 5 p.m.at the Sofitel building in what authorities are calling an apparent suicide. Most hedge funders have a sizable annual bonus largely dependent on the fund's market profits, which means managers' compensation can be significantly reduced when the fund loses money. He reportedly owned a home on East 67th Street in Manhattan with eight bedrooms, 11 fireplaces, a gym and wine cellar.

Authorities are now considering the death a suicide, according to multiple media reports of the incident.
