He said detectives were still in the early stages of the investigation but that all evidence pointed to "a tragic suicide". A suicide note was found at the scene, he added. Shea wouldn't discuss what was in the note, but law enforcement officials told The Associated Press that, among other things, it contained a message to the teenage girl telling her it was not her fault.

Kate Spade has reportedly passed away.

Designer Kate Spade has died in what police are calling an apparent suicide. They said through a spokesman that they loved Kate dearly and will miss her terribly. They asked for privacy during "this very hard time".

The Spade family released a statement on Tuesday: "We are all devastated by today's tragedy".

Spade was found at around 10 a.m.by her housekeeper, and had hanged herself in her bedroom from a red scarf wrapped around a doorknob, reports The New York Times.

Fashionista Molly Pickett said: "Kate Spade is a prime example you can have all the success and money in the world but you don't know what emotional battles people are fighting".

Spade, who was 55, found fame for her handbag and purse designs popular throughout the 1990s and 2000s, and her company, Kate Spade New York, has hundreds of retail stores worldwide.

She sold the company in 2007 to take care of her daughter Frances Beatrix Spade, who was born in 2005. She was also instrumental in reigniting NY as a fashion centre; in the '90s it had waned, and everyone was looking to London for the latest trends.
