Bed Bath & Beyond CFO identified as man who jumped from NYC tower to his death

The NYPD said in a statement Sunday that Arnal, 52, was found unconscious and unresponsive in front of his 57-story luxury skyscraper in the Tribeca neighborhood around 12:30 p.m. Friday. Police said the man “appeared to be suffering from injuries indicative of a fall from a high position”. EMS responded and pronounced the man dead, police said.

The police source told CNN on Sunday that Arnal’s wife saw him jump. The source said that while no suicide note was found, no criminality is suspected.

The NYPD said the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the cause of death and the investigation is continuing. CNN contacted the medical examiner’s office but did not receive an immediate response.

CNN has also reached out to Bed Bath & Beyond for comment.

CNN reported this week that Bed Bath & Beyond is in deep turmoil. The company is trying to save itself and avoid bankruptcy by shrinking. The chain announced on Wednesday that it would lay off about 20% of the company’s employees, close about 150 stores and cut several of its homeware brands. The company also said it secured more than $500 million in funding to shore up its difficult financial situation.
