Jay Fahy, an attorney in private practice who was also an MSNBC legal analyst, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound tonight near his office in Rutherford, New Jersey. From the CliffviewPilot.com:

Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli confirmed Fahy’s death, which he said was “the result of a single gunshot wound to the head, fired with a handgun.” Two men walking under a railroad trestle near the Castle Billiards Lounge found Fahy’s body around 5 o’clock tonight, barely 1,000 feet from his Route 17 office and down the street from his Ridge Road home, Molinelli said.

Fahy, a former prosecutor, specialized in white collar crime. Fahy was a longtime legal analyst for MSNBC. He appeared on the network in June discussing the George Zimmerman trial. He’s also contributed to CNBC and, as recently as three weeks ago, was on the news program “NJ Today.”
