A gifted art student who attended NYU is dead. Rowen Altenburger was found at the Bryant Park Hotel, where authorities say she committed suicide by swallowing pills and putting a bag over her head. The 18-year-old reportedly suffered from depression.

Look below to see 9 pictures of Rowen Altenburger, who was originally from Short Hills, New Jersey in the township of Millburn.

Although a lot of her art was dark and some of it was violent, friends and family are shocked by her death. At a young age, she had already gotten recognized in the world of art and she appeared to be poised for big things in the future. We send our sincere condolences to her loved ones.

    This story about Rowen Altenburger is absolutely tragic. If I’m not mistaken the Gindi family, who own Century 21 Department Stores, who are the money behind EMM who own Tenjune, SL, Greenhouse, Abe & Arthurs, PM, Markato, Bijoux, The Oak Room, Smith & Mills, Super Linda, Tiiny’s and the bar Upstairs, 77 Warren, and WiP nightclub who had the “bar brawl” with Chris Brown and Drake own the Bryant Park Hotel.

    The thing is there was a similar death when Ambassador Eric John’s daughter Nicole fell to her death after they failed to card this beautiful young girl Nicole John at Tenjune with her whole life ahead of her. The Gindi family are the money behind EMM. Their entire business model is “models and bottles”. They use young beautiful girls to get the banker boys to buy tables at their clubs.

    I just can’t help but wonder if there is more to this story. I sincerely hope Rowen Altenburger’s family hires one heck of a lawyer. This is one too many girls hurt by his family. There is way more to this story the press hasn’t told.
