Ex-Playboy Centerfold Pushed 7-Year-Old Son From Hotel Before Jumping Herself: Police

The former Playboy centerfold who fell to her death from a New York City hotel on Friday along with her 7-year-old son pushed the boy from the building first before leaping herself, police confirm to PEOPLE.

Officials determined the deaths of Stephanie Adams and her young son, Vincent, to be a murder-suicide after the pair fell from the 25th floor of the Gotham Hotel in Manhattan around 8:15 a.m. local time. Police found their bodies on the second-floor landing of the hotel’s courtyard.

Although initial reports suggested that Stephanie jumped with the child, police tell PEOPLE she pushed the little boy from the building first.

“I’m not wrapping my head around this,” Raoul Felder, Stephanie’s former attorney and longtime friend, previously told PEOPLE. “Her whole life was wrapped up in the child. Something must’ve happened in her life, and went haywire.”

Evil Genius: The pizza delivery bomber delivers a shocking slice of …

IT’S hard to overestimate how much self-control I am currently exercising to restrain myself from diving straight in with the final five minutes of Evil Genius (Netflix).

It’s rather a lot, because those last five minutes. Oh boy. 

To even hint at what’s to come would entirely give the game away (as would, in fact, looking at the title for the second episode), suffice to say that it makes it utterly, deliciously worth sitting through the preceding 40 minutes of sometimes slightly laboured scene- setting, and you might as well cancel the rest of your evening plans, because you won’t be getting up from the sofa any time soon. 

This documentary series (yep, another one) is the latest in the “if you liked Making a Murder then you’ll love this” canon and, by this point, the Netflix

The true story behind Netflix’s The Staircase – your new crime obsession


The true story behind Netflix's The Staircase - your new crime obsession
Michael Peterson was charged with his wife Kathleen’s murder (Picture: Netflix)

We’ve all just managed to get over Evil Genius, but Netflix is already serving up our next true crime bingewatch.

The trailer for new documentary The Staircase has dropped, and will follow the case of Michael Peterson, whose wife Kathleen died in 2001 after allegedly falling down the stairs.

The Staircase is the sequel to Jean-Xavier de Lestrade’s 2004 French mini-series The Staircase (also known as Soupcons, or Suspicions), which followed Peterson’s story from his arrest for his wife’s murder to the verdict.

And this new documentary will take a look at Peterson after he was freed from jail when it was revealed that the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation gave misleading information during

Evil Genius on Netflix explained – addressing all the HUGE questions we’re left with

And really, who’s to say how any of us would act if we had been forced into robbing a bank with a bomb around our neck?

After the 2007 indictments that concluded that Wells was part of the heist, the US Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania said Wells was involved in a “limited role”. “It may be that his role transitioned from that of the planning stages to being an unwilling participant in the scheme,” they added.

2. Was Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong the mastermind?

Despite being indicted as the mastermind of the whole scheme, Diehl-Armstrong maintained her innocence until her death in 2015, although throughout Evil Genius, she insists that Wells had an active part in it, which stands out as a bit odd if she wasn’t involved.

It’s alleged that she plotted the bank heist to get the funds to pay

Ryan Murphy and Janet Mock on ‘Pose,’ Diversity and Netflix

GALANES There’s a great line in the show: “We all need someone to look down on.”

MURPHY Look, if you’re powerless, if you’re told from birth: You’re the lowest of the low, you’re sinful and evil and going to hell, you’ll never be loved or have a family — that stirs great pain in you. And sometimes it comes out as aggression and anger, and you strike out, usually at someone who’s weaker than you. That’s true of anyone in society.

GALANES Sure, but Janet, your affect, sitting here and in your books, is not rage. Your family, your government, the medical establishment turned its back on you and the trans community. Sex work was the only way you could afford to transition.

MOCK Why am I not enraged? But I am! It’s underneath everything I do.
