Anne Morell Petrillo, 38 year-old heiress to the Scripps newspaper fortune, jumped to her death off the Tappan Zee bridge last week. Trauma from a bad marriage and her mom's brutal murder? Perhaps. But the NYT has an additional theory:
The two-story house she had occupied since roughly 2003 was attached and not particularly grand. That may be because the estate Anne Scripps Douglas left behind for her three daughters - the youngest sister, a daughter with Mr. Douglas, is named Victoria - was not strikingly large. It was $1.3 million.
Also the fact that her stepdad murdered her mom 15 years ago and then leapt to his death from the very same bridge. Could be a mix of those things.
