The 58-year-old committed suicide, his family said in a separate statement released by the school Monday, New York Post reports.

“It is with tremendous sadness we share that Professor Alan B. Krueger, beloved husband, father, son, brother, and Princeton professor of economics took his own life over the weekend,” the statement said. “The family requests the time and space to grieve and remember him.”
