A man was found dead in a luxury condo building in Midtown with a headshot wound that seemed to be self-inflicted. His wife told police that he was stressed about a “work incident.”
At 11:07 a.m. on Sunday, Steven Lord, 58, was found “unconscious and unresponsive” at 310 E. 53rd St., police said. At the scene, he was said to be dead.
