NEW YORK – A former assistant to Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon apparently committed suicide Tuesday, dying around the time he was expected to plead guilty to charges of stealing $1.2 million of pricey wine from his ex-boss.

Nicolas De-Meyer jumped to his death from a window on the 33rd floor of the Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan, at approximately 2:38 p.m. the New York Police Department said.

He died after sending text messages to his sister that “indicated he wanted to commit suicide,” the NYPD said early Wednesday.

The worried sister, whom police declined to identify, phoned managers at the hotel on E. 76th St. and asked them to check on her brother. 

Hotel security officials got into De-Meyer’s room and saw him sitting on a window ledge. He pushed himself off the ledge before the officials could stop him from jumping, police said.

    Praxair (NYSE:PX) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Praxair is expected to gain from strong backlog, new order wins and recovery in the energy and industrial end markets. Notably, Praxair’s pending merger with Linde has received conditional EU antitrust approval, antitrust clearance in China and India. Praxair and Linde also agreed to sell additional assets to a consortium of Messer Group GmbH and CVC Capital Partners in order to obtain the U.S. antitrust approval.  The companies continue to work diligently to close the merger in second-half 2018. The stock has also outperformed its industry over the past year. However, its results will be hurt by weaker volumes and political uncertainties prevalent in Brazil and currency headwinds. Further, inflation and rising freight and logistics costs will hurt margins. Praxair’s stretched valuation is also a concern.”
