Cryptocurrency Mathematician Found Dead Floating in Hudson River

Shuvro Biswas

The man whose body was found floating in the Hudson River Monday has been identified as a mathematician working with cryptocurrency, reports The New York Post.

Shuvro Biswas was self-employed and most recently working on a cryptocurrency security program.

His brother said the family started to see changes in Biswas’ demeanor over the past year, but that he largely kept his struggles to himself.

According to the Post, in February, the management of  Biswas’ West 37th Street apartment building took him to Manhattan Supreme Court, seeking to evict him over a slew of alleged bizarre acts inside the building, including setting fires, openly brandishing a knife and smearing blood inside the elevator, court filings show.

“Defendant is a ticking time bomb who, just months into the Lease, has engaged in numerous incidents of escalating, offensive nuisance-type conduct that threatens the lives, health, safety and well-being of Building staff, Building residents and Building property,” lawyers for the building wrote in one filing.



  1. Sounds like textbook schizophrenic behavior.

      Biswas’ brother told The Post that he and his family were gutted by the news, noting that they’d tried in vain to get Biswas help as he battled apparent mental illness.
