Sam Roweis, NYU Professor and Math Star, Leaps to Death
Roweis and his wife recently had twins. The twins' care seems to have been an object of a dispute between Roweis and his wife last night, in the course of which he went out the 16th-story window of their Washington Square Village, school-sponsored apartment. He was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.
As is customary in these cases, no one saw it coming.
