Billionaire financier Thomas H. Lee left no note when he apparently shot himself to death in his Manhattan office earlier this week, The Wall Street Journal reports. Investigators are still trying to determine what led the private equity pioneer and philanthropist to take his own life. Lee was best known for selling Snapple to Quaker Oats for $1.7 billion, 32 times what he bought it for just two years earlier.
