NYC Groom Kills Himself Just Hours After Marriage

A Bronx groom hurled himself into the Harlem River over the weekend — just hours after exchanging marriage vows with his longtime love.

Fernando Brazier, 28, took the fatal leap after leaving a suicide note for his bride, Trudian Hay, at the front desk of the Radisson Hotel in New Rochelle, where the couple and family members spent the night after celebrating their wedding.

“He said [in the note] he couldn’t take it anymore, and to take care of the kids,” Brazier’s sister, Shawna Weeks, told The Post.

“He left his ring in the envelope.”

Police sources said Brazier’s note told Hay that he could be found at the bottom of the river, not far from a Pathmark supermarket and Dyckman Street on the Manhattan side.

Witnesses said the just-married groom walked out of the Radisson and into a cab sometime before 9 a.m. Sunday.

He made his way to 55 Richman Plaza about 15 minutes away in The Bronx, where he jumped either from a building or the promenade behind it, police sources said.

An FDNY Marine unit found Brazier’s body in the waters near Roberto Clemente State Park, slightly upstream from where he’s believed to have jumped, around 3 p.m., the sources added.

That is fucked up. What's also fucked up is my very first thought was how ugly the bride must be.

Man, that's cold. Why would you go through with the wedding if you're going to kill yourself?

Life insurance? Pension or retirement perhaps?

Should the bride return the presents?

Re: NYC Groom Kills Himself Just Hours After Marriage

Does insurance even pay out in the event of suicide?

Depends on how the policy is written and what inclusions/exclusions there are.

Or maybe he wasn't attracted to the bride after all.

And it's hard to tell for sure, but from this pic, the bride looks very not guilty

Agreed, speaking from personal experience.

Maybe he did the calculations on how much college would cost.

In that picture the dude looks like he'd rather be doing anything (including jumping off a bridge to his death) rather than getting married.
