Not just Sunnyvale – Other Google suicides

There have been other suicides at Google much like other companies.

In 2023, Desirae Andersen plunged to her death from a hotel near Times Square following an argument with her boyfriend on May 2.

Its followed a vicious argument with her 24 year boyfriend Tyler Griffen. Andersen and her daughter were staying in a room in the Oyo Hotel when an argument broke out and spilled into the hallway.

Griffen, who was arrested and charged with assault and reckless endangerment, admitted at his arraignment that he remembered punching his girlfriend but was not arrested for her death.

Prosecutors said during the fight he also pushed the eight-month old daughter down a flight of stairs, but she was saved by other hotel guests and not injured.

By the time police had responded to 911 calls about the vicious argument, Andersen had climbed out of the tenth floor window of the hotel and leaped to her death.

Her body was found on scaffolding on the second floor and she was pronounced dead at the scene by EMS.

A Go FundMe page was started by her Anderson’s mother Cheryl Valenzuela to pay for a funeral and to bring the eight month old baby home.

“It is with a heavy heart that I come to you all today to ask for your help to provide a funeral and memorial service that my beautiful daughter deserves,” she wrote.

“She was only 20 years old and died after a physical altercation with her boyfriend in New York. I need to bring her body home to have a proper burial for her. She leaves behind an 8 month old baby girl who also needs to be brought home to Colorado from New York and I need to get to her asap. I am just at a loss and anything that anyone can contribute will be greatly appreciated.”

Two days after Andersen’s death, a 31 year-old software engineer at Google fell to his death from the 14th floor of the tech giant’s Manhattan HQ in Chelsea at 111 Eighth Ave. in another apparent suicide.

He was later identified by police as Kevin Rawlings.

Rawlings’ death followed that of another Google employee in New York, a 33-year-old advertising partnerships lead named Jacob Pratt, who also died by apparent suicide in February at a hotel near Google’s office in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.
