Judge Judy neighbor jumps to his death

A 59-year-old man jumped to his death early Saturday from a posh Sutton Place building where TV’s Judge Judy shelled out $8.5 for a duplex penthouse, police said.

The unidentified man plunged from the fourth floor of the building on Sutton Place South near East 56th Street around 8:20 a.m., according to police.

“I thought that he was cleaning the window because he dropped a screen,” said Edwin Suarez, a doorman who witnessed the incident. “I saw him standing there. He’s looking….I called my guys and I went running over there…I called on the walkie-talkie that somebody jumped and then I went to check him and he wasn’t moving.”

“Blood was coming out of his head,” said Suarez who said the man fell headfirst from the window.

A woman ran screaming down the block after the man jumped, said Artan Veli, 33, from Staten Island, a handyman who Suarez called to the scene.

“We just saw the lady,” Veli said. “She was screaming, ‘My brother. My brother. He’s my brother.’

Judge Judith Scheindlin bought an $8.5 million penthouse in the same building back in 2013, The Real Deal reported. The four-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom apartment boasts a library, two dining rooms, and a wine cellar that holds up to 900 bottles, the site reported.
