NEW LONDON, Conn. — Naomi Rachleff, the wife of Edwin F. Rachleff, told Credit Union Times she didn't see any signs that her husband was depressed or worried about New London Security Federal Credit Union's financial status.

Rachleff, an A.G. Edwards broker who handled investments for New London, committed suicide by jumping from an apartment building on July 28, the same day NCUA liquidated the $12 million credit union for insolvency. There is still no reported direct tie to New London's shutdown and members' investments.

"We've been married for 60 years. 60 years," Rachleff said from her home. "We were unbelievably close. I wish I had seen a sign. I wish I was smart enough to see a sign. I'm heartbroken. I'm sad."
