Privileged and 6’3” tall, Princeton graduate Thomas Gilbert Jr. stands accused of the January 2015 slaying of his hedge fund manager father Thomas Gilbert Sr., founder of Wainscott Capital. Described by Vanity Fair as “gym-bodied and catalogue-model-handsome, with a man-bun-worthy sweep of blond hair and piercing blue eyes”, Gilbert Jr. is also suspected of burning down the Hamptons home of his former roommate Peter Smith’s family and appeared as an extra in the 2013 short film And After All. Here, indeed, is a true Gatsby-esque example that shows wealth and happiness do not always go together.
Was the hedge fund doing so badly, the poor man was slain! I think this is a true case of a wasted life, or should I say a monied life that is wasted..
A proper nutter!!!!!!!!
How very sad, the poor father.
