Icon81 Suicide of Victoria's Secret founder

Comment: As told in the movie "The Social Network": the original creator
of the "Victoria's Secret" stores sold the company for $4 million. That
company sold the "Victoria's Secret" company to another company a few
years later for $500 million. After that, the original creator of
"Victoria's Secret" committed suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate

Seaching the internet I found the name of the original creator - Roy
Raymond - and he did commit suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate bridge,
but I couldn't find anything mentioning that the company he sold it to -
The Limited - sold "Victoria's Secret" to another company. The only thing
I found said that "Limited Brands sold 75% of the Limited clothing chain
to firm Sun Capital Partners". No mention of the "Victoria's Secret"
chain ever being sold.
