DARIEN, Conn. (AP) _ Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials say it could take months to finish investigating the death of an investment banker who was struck by a Metro-North train in Darien this week.

Fifty-five-year-old Kevin Murphy of Darien was hit by a Manhattan-bound train just after 6:30 a.m. Monday at the Noroton Heights station. The married father of five worked at the merchant banking firm Brooks, Houghton & Co. in Manhattan.

MTA spokesman Aaron Donovan told the Hearst Connecticut Media Group that the investigation could take months and officials are still asking for the public’s help in determining why Murphy was on the tracks.

Murphy had a bachelor’s degree from Yale University and a master’s degree in finance and accounting from Northwestern University. He had three decades of experience in the financial sector.
