Third prominent banker found dead in six days < UPDATED

1 02 2014

UPDATE, Sept. 18O.K. – We give up. These dead bankers won’t quit.

We were going to look around for some new items and there are just too many to properly update this post. So we refer our readers to this DEAD BANKERS blog.

It will get added to the blogroll on the sidebar.


Bloomberg is reporting this morning that former Federal Reserve economist Mike Dueker was found dead in an apparent suicide near Tacoma, Washington.

Dueker, 50, a chief economist at Russell Investments, had been missing since Jan. 29 and was reportedly having troubles at work.

Normally HousingWire wouldn’t cover deaths in the industry, but what’s strange is that Dueker is the third prominent banker found dead since Sunday.

On Sunday, William Broeksmit, 58, former senior manager for Deutsche Bank, was found hanging in his home, also an apparent suicide.

On Tuesday, Gabriel Magee, 39, vice president at JPMorgan Chase & Co’s (JPM) London headquarters, apparently jumped to his death from a building in the Canary Wharf area.

We missed this one – “Last week, a U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG died last week. The cause of death has not been made public.” from – Why Are Banking Executives In London Killing Themselves?

London Stunned By Spate Of Financial Worker Deaths

Chief economist’s apparent suicide is the latest in a series of bizarre deaths in the financial world this week  –  We missed this one too – “Monday, Jan. 27: Tata Motors managing director Karl Slym died after falling from a hotel room in Bangkok in what police said could be possible suicide.
Slym, 51, had attended a board meeting of Tata Motors’ Thailand unit in the Thai capital and was staying with his wife in a room on the 22nd floor of the Shangri-La hotel. Hotel staff found his body on Sunday on the fourth floor, which juts out above lower floors.”

Aug. 29 (story April 17) – Liechtenstein on edge after banker’s murder

” . . . . a murder that rocked the country earlier this year. On April 7, Jürgen Hermann, a Liechtenstein national, shot dead Jürgen Frick, the CEO of a private bank of the same name in Balzers, a municipality to the south of the capital Vaduz.
Hermann, 58, lay in wait in the underground car park of the bank headquarters and shortly after 7am shot Frick several times. In so doing, he committed an act he had threatened for some years. Hermann blamed the 48-year-old banker for the collapse of his 56 million Swiss franc fortune (£37 million), made from his successful invention of a technical device that warns divers about the bends. . . . “

A fitting end to those who have played a part in corruption.

Doesn’t this seem a little suspect? The ways these 3 died sounds a whole lot like maybe one was pushed or thrown from the window; another out for a morning run and maybe jumped or climbed over a 4 foot fence then rolled down a hill; another hanging himself? Like Jessica Upshaw shooting herself? And all this is just accepted as suicide with no investigations or serious questions as to whether something else might be happening? What did those 3 know in common? Just my suspicious mind at work…

I was thinking of the bankers who died in the Vatican Bank scandal written about here –
In God’s Name: An Investigation Into the Murder of Pope John Paul (6 million copies sold).
Has to do with P2 and the mafia etc. etc. and Vatican money laundering (without many in the Vatican even knowing).

Maybe that’ll be our next Bookclub selection.

I was late to read it but it’s a great yarn.
The scandal involved a banker hung from Tower Bridge (a Masonic ritual) and another dead in a pool with a manhole cover tied to his neck etc.
Series of ritual murders.
I think the new scandal has meaning (math) of what floor people ‘jumped’ from.
33 a magic no. to Masons.
