New Canaan Police Lt. Jason Ferraro said there were no signs of foul play. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is conducting an investigation, Ferraro said.

Stamford attorney, Mark Sherman, a family spokesman, released the following statement: “Mitchell Vazquez was an accomplished businessman and pioneer in the global foreign exchange market. He was also a loving father, step-father, and life partner to his fiancée.”
