A pair of guests committed suicide in a Manhattan hotel room, but not before leaving a thank you note and the gratuity on Friday.
A 33-year-old Queens man and 30-year-old Brooklyn woman, who have not been named, were found dead at 7pm Thursday night by the cleaning woman, according to the New York Post.
The two were staying in a room on the 18th floor of the Yotel Hotel on 10th Avenue in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan.
They left behind a note saying ‘Don’t look behind the curtain. We’re dead. This is for you,’ along with several $20 bills for the hotel staffer who was to find their bodies.

The two were found with nitrous oxide canisters near the bed
The book by Geo Stone, is described on Amazon as a ‘brave, compassionate, and ethical study examines the methods, unforeseen results, and other alternatives to suicide’
The cleaning woman reportedly found that the doorway was blocked by a plastic sheet upon entering the room on Thursday.
She could not see beyond the sheet hunt by the entrance into the room but found the grim note and cash tip taped to the sheet.
Despite the instruction not to look, she found the guests dead, lying in bed with a plastic bag over both of their heads.
The bag had plastic tubes leading to two nitrous oxide canisters, according to the report.
Also found in the room were a signed suicide note explaining the the pair’s intent to kill themselves and with the last will and testament of the man and woman.
The book ‘Suicide and Attempted Suicide: Methods and Consequences’ by Geo Stone, was found under the bed, according to the Post, with the section on suffocation bookmarked.
