When you imagine someone deciding that they are going to take their own life rather than face another day, you probably don’t envision the wealthiest of the wealthy. You probably envision someone with some money woes, some relationship woes, some family woes, some work woes. You get the picture. Since the year 2014 began just a few short months ago, 12 elite bankers have now committed suicide, some in fairly mysterious circumstances. These are very wealthy and powerful individuals. During one two week period it happened four times. Let’s take a look at the list:
Karl Slym, 51 year old Tata Motors managing director Karl Slym, was found dead on the fourth floor of the Shangri-La hotel in Bangkok on January 27th.
Gabriel Magee, a 39-year-old JP Morgan employee, died after falling from the roof of the JP Morgan European headquarters in London on January 27th.
Mike Dueker, 50-year-old chief economist of a US investment bank was found dead close to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington State.
Richard Talley, the 57 year old founder of American Title Services in Centennial, Colorado, was found dead earlier this month after apparently shooting himself with a nail gun.
Tim Dickenson, a U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG, also died last month, however the circumstances surrounding his death are still unknown.
Ryan Henry Crane, a 37 year old executive at JP Morgan died in an alleged suicide just a few weeks ago. No details have been released about his death aside from this small obituary announcement at the Stamford Daily Voice.
Li Junjie, 33-year-old banker in Hong Kong jumped from the JP Morgan HQ in Hong Kong this week.
James Stuart Jr, Former National Bank of Commerce CEO, found dead in Scottsdale, Ariz., the morning of Feb. 19. A family spokesman did not say what caused the death
Edmund (Eddie) Reilly, 47, a trader at Midtown’s Vertical Group, commited suicide by jumping in front of LIRR train
Kenneth Bellando, 28, a trader at Levy Capital, formerly investment banking analyst at JPMorgan, jumped to his death from his 6th floor East Side apartment.
12 – Jan Peter Schmittmann, 57, the former CEO of Dutch bank ABN Amro found dead at home near Amsterdam with wife and daughter.
This is not a coincidence. There is no way that this many people in this social class would choose this fate in such a small amount of time. Notice a couple of things. Way too many of those names are left with either unknown circumstances around their deaths or having used very unusual means to commit the supposed act. I mean, who jumps in front of a train to kill themselves?
What do these people know that is making them leave this Earth in a mass exodus? Could it be another financial implosion? Criminal investigations on the horizon? All out war crashing the global economy?
They know something, clearly. Of course, there is always option B. It’s not hard to figure out where we’re going from here.
How many of these people can we believe actually committed suicide? Are we witnessing a mass cleansing at the top of the banking industry by some group in the shadows?
You won’t hear about this in the mainstream media, at least not more than a passing blurb. No one is asking any questions.
So, Common Sense Conspiracy is. What do you think is the reason behind this, and what does it mean for the rest of 2014?
