Default Wife of freed (BLACK) cop-killer Herman Bell kills herself

Wife of freed cop-killer Herman Bell kills herself

The “jailhouse” wife of paroled three-time cop killer Herman Bell committed suicide — by leaping from the roof patio of her California nursing home, The Post has learned.

Nancy Jacot-Bell, 71, had married the notorious cop hater 20 years into his 47-year state prison sentence for the ambush assassination of NYPD Officers Joseph Piagentini and Waverly Jones.

They have two now-adult children together.

In a parole board decision that sparked widespread outrage, Bell was sprung from state prison on April 27.

He has been paroled to Brooklyn, according to officials with the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.

But he had told the parole board that he wanted to transfer his parole to California, explaining, “which is where my family resides,” according to a transcript of his March 1 parole board hearing.

Bell even had a full-time archivist job lined up there, and planned to be “speaking at schools,” according to the transcript.

Instead, his wife — a longtime Bay Area resident according to public records — was admitted about a week later to the Bayside Park assisted living and rehab center in Emeryville, California.

On May 12, three days into her stay there, Jacot-Bell plunged from the fifth-floor roof patio, according to the Mercury News.

Her fall occurred at 10:04 a.m. and has been ruled a suicide, according to the Alameda County Coroner’s Office.

Jacot-Bell had been admitted to the facility for only a short stay, as a temporary resident, a staffer told the Mercury News.

She fell from the roof to the sidewalk below, the newspaper reported; it made no mention of Jacot-Bell’s relation to her infamous husband.

The website for Bayside Park says it houses 99 assisted living residents.

The news of Jacot-Bell’s death — and of Bell losing a spouse — came as a shock to Joseph Piagentini’s widow, Diane.

“I really don’t know what to say,” she said in a phone interview Thursday night.

“Anybody who commits suicide, that’s a terrible thing for any family.

“That is a shock,” she said.

Diane said that state parole officials have told her only that Bell remains in Brooklyn.

Bell’s lawyer, Robert Boyle, hung up on a Post reporter and did not return a voicemail message asking for comment.

The Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association fought hard to keep Bell in a cage, and is continuing to appeal his release.

Bell had killed Piagentini using his own service weapon — and as the dying officer lay on a sidewalk, begging for his life on behalf of Diane and their two children.

In his March parole hearing, he assured officers that now, “you would want me to be your friend.”

In an Oct, 24, 2008, story in the San Francisco BayView, Bell’s wife spoke warmly of her close relationship with her husband, and of their son, Kamel, and their two grade-school-aged granddaughters, Simone and Sage.

She spoke on the occasion of Bell being temporarily moved to a San Francisco jail for an ultimately failed prosecution on a cold-case 1971 cop killing.

“My husband and I speak on the phone every night,” she told the paper.
