‘The sad fact is that Jeffrey Corzine had been suffering from severe depression for several years and recently had been receiving treatment for what is a very painful and debilitating physical and mental ailment,’ Goldberg said.
‘On Tuesday morning, he succumbed to his disease and made the tragic decision to take his own life.’
The family is planning a small, private memorial for Jeffrey, Goldberg said.
Corzine, who was described by family friends as a ‘lost’ soul, was discovered dead in Mexico City ‘several days’ ago after failing to reply to messages from loved ones.
His friends and family tracked down his whereabouts to his hotel by following his credit card trail.
