On Tuesday, at 2:38 p.m., a naked Nicolas DeMeyer, 41, flashed one last smile at the security guards at the Carlyle Hotel before jumping from his 33rd floor window.

He leaped eight minutes after he was scheduled to appear before a Manhattan federal judge for stealing $1.2 million worth of rare wines from Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Post reported that DeMeyer’s body struck a 17th-floor balcony with such force that half of his body landed on a terrace two floors below. DeMeyer’s suicide was a tragic end to a years-long saga of deception, during which he spent 14-months globe-trotting and evading arrest.

From 2014 to 2016, DeMeyer, while working as a personal assistant for the Solomon family, pilfered more than 500 bottles of rare wine from his boss’ vast collection, including seven precious bottles of Domaine de le Romanée-Conti, which Solomon purchased for $133,650, according to court papers.

DeMeyer sold them to a North Carolina-based wine broker, Ryan Chaland, whom he found online. By November 2016, Solomon had been alerted that his vintage assets were on the market.
