- 1 min(CNN) -- Kate Spade, the fashion designer and businesswoman, hanged herself with a scarf in an apparent suicide at a New York City apartment Tuesday, according to a NYPD source. A second NYPD source said the call came in at 10:30 a.m. this morning and a suicide note was found. In 1999, Spade and her husband sold a 56 percent stake to Neiman Marcus for $34 million. Then, in 2006, Spade and her two partners sold the remaining 44 percent to Neiman for a reported $59 million. Following the buyout, Neiman Marcus inked a deal to offload the entire Kate Spade company to fashion retailer Liz Claiborne for a reported $124 million, including debt, according to Forbes.
