A little bit of sad news found its way to my inbox today. Brooklyn Tech High School just lost one of their own…

Convicted Hedge Fund Scammer Commits Suicide In Jail

KIRK WRIGHT, recently convicted of bilking investors in his International Management Associate hedge fund out of millions, and facing a prison sentence of up to 710 years, hung himself in his prison cell on Saturday.

The 37-year-old Marietta resident was found dead in the cell where he was being held while awaiting sentencing; his prison term was expected to be lengthy. No foul play by another person is suspected, and the man’s death was listed as a suicide, said Betty Honey of the Fulton medical examiner’s office.

A federal jury convicted WRIGHT on Wednesday of all 47 counts of mail fraud, securities fraud and money laundering stemming from a scam run through his firm, International Management Associates.

Michael O’Leary, one of Wright’s two attorneys, said Sunday night that he was “shocked and saddened” by the news. WRIGHT was upset about his conviction, “as any other defendant would be,” O’Leary said. “It’s a very sad state of affairs and I feel very sad for his family.”

KIRK was one of my lil’ homeys back in Brooklyn Tech H.S. He was a good dude. No rah-rah bullshit or anything like that, just a good, quiet dude. I’m sorrry that the journey turned out this way for him. Please say a kind word for his mother and the rest of his family.

  5. the_dallas says:

    Sonn went to Morehouse after Tech.

    DameStatus,
    What is the deal with MC? I know several cats that went there and they all are on the come up. Fools be acting like everyone owes them forty acres. Everyone.

    Are those the ethics being preached up in that piece?

  6. damn…i read this article in the AJC the other day and automatically assumed dude was an old white guy…

    shit’s ill b…

    RIP Kirk. A little before my time at 29 Fort Greene Place. A damn shame.

  8. Anthony says:

    The dude didn’t go to Morehouse … Get your story correct

  9. the_dallas says:

    Get a late pass fool.

    Can’t you read the comments above?

    Or are you too busy letting MC balls bounce off your chin?

    SUNY Binghamton…1993!

  11. the_dallas says:

    Oh.

    My badd on that comment killer.

  12. Anthony says:

    im not from the MC … but you owe some Morehouse men … It’s not what they teach … it’s what you learn. Kirk did grad at Harvard … got any comments on where the basketball his them?

  13. Amadeo says:

    Damn….You don’t even get that much for torturing people. I guess when you mess with people with money…

  14. the_dallas says:

    Harvard cats are the dudes that place their penises on the foreheads of Morehouse men.

  15. dameSTATUS says:

    damn, I don’t know if that’s hate or love above.

    I bet maybe a third of the black men that get advanced degrees at hahvard went to morehouse, it’s kind of an unofficial feeder (pause) system. Same things with all the big I Banks in NYC.

    I will be right back with the Morehouse guy that did a similar thing, provided it’s not the same guy.

    Most importantly, rest in peace Kirk, the reason we are all here.

    dameSTATUS,
    Not you brother, you are the coolest MC grad since Spizzike.

    Thanks for bringing me back into focus. R.I.P. Kirk Wright

    WOW.

    Kirk used to date one of my girls at Tech and he married a friend of mine. He went to Binghampton. I had lost touch with them over the years. This is really sad.

    DP.com, I second your thoughts as a Technite in the same class as KW. He was just a chill quiet dude. Sad to see it go down like that. I feel for his children and wife.

    DP, as soon as I heard the news, I checked your site and no doubt you had it on and poppin’ I need to get your blasts again so I can stay in the loop.
