Is this a new one? If it is that brings the count up to 5 now.

This is the 8th one I believe. Last week my own business banker who was only 39 years old committed suicide here in the UK. Only heard about it yesterday when I called his office. I don't think he had anything to do with what's going on at JPM but a bit close to home ;(

I think that was something to do with the ultimate battle in Eve Online, where somebody failed to make a payment in the game for a star system lease. Many bankers did play this game and took the day off:

The Australian newspaper Herald-Sun actually interviewed the person who missed the payment, and I'm sure his name was McGee, but that article seems to have been taken down.

Junjie becomes the 7th banker to suddenly die in recent weeks. Questions as to whether the deaths are merely a coincidence or are linked to some as yet unknown factor continue to swirl.
- On January 26, former Deutsche Bank executive Broeksmit was found dead at his South Kensington home after police responded to reports of a man found hanging at a house. According to reports, Broeksmit had “close ties to co-chief executive Anshu Jain.”
- Gabriel Magee, a 39-year-old senior manager at JP Morgan’s European headquarters, jumped 500ft from the top of the bank’s headquarters in central London on January 27, landing on an adjacent 9 story roof.
- Mike Dueker, the chief economist at Russell Investments, fell down a 50 foot embankment in what police are describing as a suicide. He was reported missing on January 29 by friends, who said he had been “having problems at work.”
- Richard Talley, 57, founder of American Title Services in Centennial, Colorado, was also found dead earlier this month after apparentlyshooting himself with a nail gun.
- 37-year-old JP Morgan executive director Ryan Henry Crane died last week.
- Tim Dickenson, a U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG, also died last month, although the circumstances surrounding his death are still unknown.

Well, I mean -- he was an investment banker. Investment bankers have been killing themselves since there have been investment bankers.

Why? Usually because they lost the equivalent of millions of dollars on bad investment, maybe it belonged to them, maybe it didn't.

I do however believe there is a connection, and that connection is the crumbling of the exchange. As it gets worse and worse in terms of faith, more and more people are going to be losing. Some of them, will be losing everything. Those are the ones that tend to jump off buildings...

The nail gun story though, that just makes no sense, that HAD to be some kind of murder.

Maybe it has to be related to the potential coming market crash next month.
Its keeps being brought up in the tight comparisons to the 1929 crash

Maybe...but if I were an investment banker I think I would at least wait for the crash before "cashing in" lol

I mean, really...wont they feel kinda stupid if the crash doesn't happen?

JP Morgan trying to stall while they come up with an explanation (or hope the story goes away) ?

Press reporting on the third unexplained death at JPMorgan in three weeks has now entered the twilight zone of “news” reporting thanks to obfuscation by JPMorgan. Major media have characterized the worker as an “investment banker,” a “foreign exchange trader,” and a low level employee who worked in “operations.” These are job functions that are highly remote from one another; they are decidedly not interchangeable job titles.

Yesterday, JPMorgan explained away its information lockout as follows: “Out of respect for those involved, we cannot comment further.” We can understand that a responsible human relations department would want to notify the family before releasing the individual’s name to the press but it is now more than 24 hours later and the press is still in the dark.

At 5:13 a.m. this morning, February 19, reporter Charles Riley assisted by Vivian Kam of CNN released an update to the scant information reported yesterday. The report shows that JPMorgan is still refusing to release the man’s name.

CNN reports that: “A source at the bank said the man — identified by police only by his surname, Li — was a junior employee.” We now have a fourth characterization of what this individual did at JPMorgan and we are no closer to any credible information than yesterday. There are tens of thousands of people with the surname Li.

The JPMorgan spokesperson who gave the information to CNN is directly contradicting the information a JPMorgan spokesperson gave to the New York Post yesterday. New York Post reporter Michael Gray reported at 10:25 a.m. yesterday: “A 33-year-old JPMorgan investment banker leaped to his death Tuesday from the roof of the bank’s 30-story Hong Kong office, according to a bank spokesperson.” Gray reports further that the “identify is being withheld pending notification of next of kin…”

My real question is what does Jamie Dimon knows that we, the people don't ? What could be so dangerous that it's worthing the shot to kill 7 employees of JP Morgan Chase ?

That he's no different than Bernie Madoff but on a much much bigger scale?

Could be, could be not, we all know though that bankers robbed a lot of money using the laws to their advantage. What is funny though is the fact that even in the bible it is written not to charge interest rates to fellow people.

If there is a judgment after his death, then Jamie Dimon might go to hell.

One more that people tend to not realize is Roger Rodas... The guy driving the car who also died with Paul Walker. Roger Rodas was a top banking executive with Merrill Lynch/Bank of America for years and was constantly on the top bankers in the nations lists. With all of the unexplained issues and unanswered questions about that accident, it wouldn't surprise me if he was the target of some kind of hit and Paul Walker ended up as collateral damage...

Major world banks are under regulatory scrutiny over their so called “pre-crisis cheating” and multi-billion dollar rigging of benchmark and commodity rates.

JP Morgan and Deutsche Bank have been hit the hardest, with JPM being fined a record $4 billion and Deutsche Bank facing a $1.93 billion bill.

In January, JP Morgan also admitted it had aided the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme by turning it a blind eye, but the US Department of Justice decided then not to send anyone from the firm to jail under a deferred prosecution agreement.

In March 2013 the US Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigation published a 307 page report that described in detail JP Morgan’s financial irregularities and deliberate masking of some critical financial information.

More recently, JP Morgan was fined $614 million for concealing the full risk associated with the mortgage securities it sold Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae ahead of the crisis.

In September last year JP Morgan Chase agreed to pay $920 million in fines to settle probes related to the “London Whale” financial debacle of 2012. Bank employee Bruno Iksil, nicknamed “London Whale” for the size of his operations, was notorious for his “casino bets” of other people’s money, which caused the bank about $6.2 billion in losses.

Overall, eight world banking giants were fined a record combined total of €1.71bn by the European Commission for manipulating with the benchmark Libor and Euribor rates.

According to the EU investigation, Deutsche Bank, Barclays, Société Générale, RBS, UBS, JPMorgan, Citigroup and RP Martin were part of two separate illegal cartels which conspired to manipulate Euribor and Libor to benefit their own positions in euro and Japanese yen-denominated interest rate derivatives markets.

Deutsche bank is now running internal probes into whether its traders manipulated interbank and foreign exchange rates.


Perhaps JP Morgan is also "running internal probes" of a different sort.

Not clear how the missing WSJ energy writer is related to the string of bankers 'suicides'. But this article seems to suggest that his writings on OPEC didn't sit well with someone and that his credit card was used in Mexico. Or, he is just hiding himself.

Another one just took a leap off the same building. What that bring the count up to 7 or 8? I'm losing count.

I think that makes 9 now.
Something very nasty is afoot.
Either way, if they are actually killing themselves or if they are being offed... something is up.

For this time period to come up so long ago is really interesting.

By Grady Means Thursday, October 25, 2012

MEANS: U.S. economy on schedule to crash March 4, 2014

David Walker, former U.S. comptroller, i.e., the former chief accountant of the U.S. government, has suggested similar time frames for economic catastrophe.
