CHAPPAQUA, N.Y.-- Susan Kramer Feinberg, the 59-year old Chappaqua resident who was found dead in a midtown New York hotel after being reported missing, was a married attorney with two children.

According to her LinkedIn page, Feinberg, an Oak Hill Road resident, listed herself as a pro bono attorney. She worked at Cohanzik Management L.L.C., a hedge fund, in Pleasantville as a high yield analyst until 2008, according to her LinkedIn.

She was admitted to the bar in New York in 2005 and was also licensed to practice in Georgia and Florida.  

Feinberg was married to Edward, who runs an energy consulting firm.  She had a son, Sam, and daughter, Abigail.

When reached at their home, Edward Feinberg declined comment.

A neighbor, Ilse Stone, said Feinberg was often seen walking around the neighborhood with a crutch. The family was considering leaving Chappaqua after Feinberg lost her job at Cohanzik, Stone said.

Feinberg is originally from Yardley, PA and attended the University of Pennsylvania, according to her Facebook page.

Feinberg's body was discovered lying face-up at the Times Square Hilton hotel at 2:37 p.m., according to a representative with the New York Police Department Press Office. No foul play was suspected and the medical examiner is set to determine the cause of death, the New York Police Department Press Office said.

New Castle Police and the Metropolitan Transit Authority Police assisted the NYPD in the investigation according to New Castle Police.

Feinberg was last seen in Grand Central Terminal at 12 p.m.  New Castle Police said she was en-route to New York City for a doctor's appointment, which she never made.

Feinberg suffered from an unknown physical ailment.
