The couple who jumped to their deaths from a 17-story New York City office building Friday morning, after struggling with debt, have been identified.

Chiropractor Glenn Scarpelli and his wife Patricia, ages 53 and 50, are the victims in the early morning suicide.

They lived close to Wall Street with their two children, Isabella, 20, and Joseph, 19.

But they traveled uptown, to Glenn's recently closed chiropractic practice, just a block from the Empire State building, to commit suicide.

They jumped from a window of the ninth-floor office around 5:45am, dying as they fell on the hard asphalt of East 33rd Street, near Madison Avenue.

Police covered their bodies with white sheets when they arrived on the scene, shutting down the entire block to investigate.
