Kirk Wright, the hedge fund manager convicted of 47 counts of fraud and money laundering, whose clients included pro football players and his mother, and who faced as much as 710 years in prison plus a fine of up to $16 million, committed suicide in his jail cell on Saturday. Betty Honey, an investigator with the Fulton County Medical Examiner's office, said Wright hanged himself, and that no foul play is suspected. Obviously, this is extremely sad for all involved, even those of us just reading/writing about the event. Moving forward, so we (family, friends, strangers with candy) don't have to experience this sort of pain again, anyone awaiting sentencing (Moz?) should take his/her cue from convicted tax evader, Wesley Snipes.
On Sunday, convicted tax cheat Wesley Snipes dropped in on a private party at a Water Mill mansion [in the Hamptons] where he danced and drank until the wee hours. "He had no concerns," said our spy. "He was laughing and telling jokes and was loving life. Everyone said 'hi' and no one brought up the fact that he faces up to three years in the slammer." Michael Lohan was there, too.
