Gigi Jordan, a pharmaceutical millionaire who had her eight-year-old autistic son killed in 2014 was discovered dead in her house just hours after the Supreme Court had revoked her bail.

The cops are currently investigating the incident as a possible suicide, The New York Post reported.

According to sources, her death was discovered at her Stuyvesant Heights apartment around 12:30 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 30, only hours after US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor issued a ruling that was anticipated to send Jordan, 62, back to prison.

Although the cause of death has not yet been established, some claim that a note was discovered at the scene.

It represents what could be the end of a protracted story that has taken many strange turns.

In February 2010, while in a lavish suite at the Peninsula Hotel, Jordan was charged with giving her autistic son Jude Mirra a fatal quantity of pills, said reports.

Jordan's defense attorneys claimed she killed the boy while suffering from significant emotional disturbance and thinking her ex-husband was going to murder him during a bizarre, six-week trial.

A Manhattan jury acquitted her of the top murder count but found Jordan guilty of manslaughter in 2014.

She was sentenced to 18 years in jail in 2015. However, her conviction for manslaughter charges was overturned in 2020 due to a procedural misstep.

Jordan's attorneys objected to the trial judge briefly sealing the courtroom, but US Magistrate Judge Sarah Cave determined that even while the mistake hadn't hurt Jordan's case, her Sixth Amendment right to a fair trial had been infringed.

On Dec. 9, 2020, Jordan was released from prison after completing more than ten years of her sentence. When her case was still pending, Cave ruled that she be released to home confinement on a $250,000 bail.

On Thursday, Dec. 29, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor issued an order that would have required Jordan to return to prison. The justice overturned a previous order from Dec. 20 that allowed her to remain free on bail as the high court was considering her appeal.
