Missing Clinton Hill Woman Reportedly Jumped Off George Washington Bridge


The body of a Clinton Hill woman who was reported missing last week was found floating in Spuyten Duyvil Creek near West 218 Street in Manhattan, the New York Daily News reports.

Twenty-four-year-old Lael Feldman was last seen at her Clinton Hill home shortly after 2am on Thursday, July 27, the NYPD reported. Police believe Feldman’s death was a suicide and that she jumped off the George Washington Bridge, according to the New York Post.

The NYPD Harbor Unit recovered her body from the water near West 218 Street and Indian Road in Inwood at approximately 2:40pm on Monday, July 31, the newspapers report.

Her purse was found by police on the George Washington Bridge last week, the Daily News states. Feldman’s mother, Marla Mase, told the paper that her daughter suffered from depression and had attempted suicide multiple times.

Feldman was a singer and released two jazz albums using the name Lael Summer.

“I think she’s at peace,” her mother told the Daily News. “She really wanted this. I’ve been preparing for this for a long time.”

  1. What a terrible shame and how sad. A permanent solution to a temporary situation…although knowing serious depression from personal experience, I know how hopeless and helpless one can feel; how it can feel like anything BUT temporary.

  2. They really have to do something about this we don’t hear it in the news but it happens too often a fence must be put in place so this will stop happening. I also would like to add I am a spiritual medium and those who commit suicide are never at peace they stay in a state of limbo until the time comes when they where meant to live this earth, those who commit suicide has to come back and live again the experience and make better choices this i received from my spiritual guides.msy God have mercy on her soul
