Darien police in an e-mail confirmed McKeon’s death and said the incident isn’t considered suspicious. He was 58.
McKeon, a founding partner of Wasserstein Perella & Co., started Veritas in 1992, building it into a $2.2 billion firm. He was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, and was appointed in 1993 to chairman of the Connecticut Health and Educational Facilities Authority.
