At Krishnamurthy's home, a woman answering the phone yesterday said the family had no comment.
Doylestown lawyer William Goldman Jr. met with Krishnamurthy's wife, Paige, late yesterday afternoon. Goldman said the family was "not questioning the accuracy of the report."
He said he was retained to get information about the Coast Guard investigation and to make contact with Carnival Cruise Lines. He would not say whether Paige Krishnamurthy planned to file a lawsuit.
"It's a very vulnerable time for a person," Goldman said. "This is a woman who suffered a tragedy and witnessed a tragedy."
Neighbors on the 4500 block of Deep Glen Way, where the family has lived since 2001, said that Paige and Ramesh Krishnamurthy were private and that their sons were not yet of school age.
Evanson said he did not know what the couple argued about before Krishnamurthy jumped. He said witnesses told Coast Guard investigators that Krishnamurthy had four alcoholic beverages in the hours before he jumped.
The Carnival Legend had left the Caribbean island of Tortola and was on its way back to New York when the man leaped overboard. The ship remained at the scene for 12 hours before the Coast Guard allowed it to proceed to New York, according to a news release from Carnival.
"The company's thoughts and prayers are with the family and loved ones of the missing guest," the news release said.
According to an investigative report by the Miami Herald, six passengers have gone missing from Carnival lines since 2004.
