Two people staying at a popular hotel in New York City left the housekeeper a thank-you note and a tip before their joint suicide.

A 33-year-old man from Queens and a 30-year-old woman from Brooklyn were found dead by the housekeeper around 7 p.m. on Thursday, according to the New York Post. The 48-year-old housekeeper entered room No. 1830 and found a sheet hanging in the doorway, blocking the view of the room. Attached to the sheet was a thank-you note and a cash tip.

The housekeeper moved beyond the sheet and found the double suicide, caused by alleged suffocation. A book depicting a number of suicide methods and consequences was found underneath the hotel bed.

Also found at the scene were a signed suicide note and two envelopes that included the couple’s last will and testament.

Suicide pacts account for less than 1 percent of the total number of suicides. In 2017, 47,173 Americans died by suicide. In the same year, there were an estimated 1,300,000 suicide attempts.
