TRIBECA, Manhattan (PIX11) — Bed Bath & Beyond CFO Gustavo Arnal’s Friday death was ruled a suicide, the medical examiner’s office said.

The 52-year-old CFO’s body was found near Leonard Street and West Broadway with injuries “indicative from a fall from an elevated position,” police said. Arnal started at Bed Bath & Beyond in May of 2020, according to the company. Before that, he worked in finance at Avon, Walgreens Boots Alliance, and Procter & Gamble.

He was facing a lawsuit accusing him of taking part in a scheme to inflate the company’s stock price to sell shares for a huge profit.

The news of Arnal’s death came just days after Bed Bath & Beyond said that it would close stores and lay off workers in a bid to turn around its beleaguered business.
