Manhattan, NY - Upper West Side Jewish Mother Found Dead in the Bathtub By 9yr Old Daughter
Manhattan, NY - A 9-year-old girl found her mother dead Thursday in their upper West Side apartment, apparently killed when she fell in the bathtub and struck her head.
Shele Covlin, 47, a financial adviser for UBS Wealth Management, was found in the W. 68th St. condo about 7 a.m., but police sources said the accident may have happened earlier while her daughter was sleeping.
Detectives suspect the victim grabbed a handle to lift herself out of the tub, and the handle gave way.
Last January, Colvin, her brother Philip Danishefsky and father, Joel Danishefsky, were hired away from Merrill Lynch by UBS.
The family are members of LINCOLN Square Synagogue
