[BREAKING] Designer Kate Spade found dead in NY apartment

Designer Kate Spade reportedly found dead from apparent suicide

Police sources say, among other things, the fashion legend's note told her teenage daughter that the suicide was not her fault.

When Kate Spade began her company in 1993 with six different handbags, one stood out above the rest: Sam. "The contents of that note, as well as the physical state of the apartment and the comments of the witness, lend to the credibility that it is an apparent suicide".

The family said through a spokesman that they loved Kate dearly and will miss her terribly. "We would ask that our privacy be respected as we grieve during this very hard time". Spade is survived by her husband and her daughter, born in 2005.

The company says in a statement that while Spade had not been affiliated with its "beloved brand" for more than a decade, she and her husband were its founders, and the news of her death is "incredibly sad".
