4 bankers die in one week in apparent suicides

Why are bankers suddenly dying under suspicious circumstances?

By John Vibes

WASHINGTON STATE (INTELLIHUB) — This week 50-year-old Mike Dueker,  the chief economist of a US investment bank was found dead close to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington State.

Dueker is the fourth banker to be reported dead this week under suspicious circumstances, with all four of the deaths resulting from apparent suicides.

This string of deaths is leading many to wonder what has been going on behind the scenes in the world of finance.

Were these bankers killed for knowing too much?  Were they involved in something so unethical that they killed themselves out of shame?  These are the speculations that are rising in the wake of these apparent suicides.


Jennifer Tice, a company spokeswoman declined to comment, however said, that Dueker was in good standing at Russell Investment, the company he worked for.

We were deeply saddened to learn today of the death,” Tice said in an e-mail on Friday. “He made a valuable contributions that helped our clients and many of his fellow associates.

The string of deaths began on January 26 when a 58-year-old former senior executive at Deutsche Bank AG, William Broeksmit, was found dead in his home after an apparent suicide in South Kensington in central London.


The very next day Tata Motors managing director Karl Slym, 51, was found dead on the fourth floor of the Shangri-La hotel in Bangkok.

Then on January 28, 39-year-old Gabriel Magee, a JP Morgan employee, died after falling from the roof of the JP Morgan European headquarters in London.

Now with the fourth death in one week being reported, many are beginning to suspect foul play, or that these men were running from some sort of deep conspiracy.

    Dear Investigative Journalist, INVESTIGATE BEFORE YOU REPORT, DUMBASS.

    it would be nothing if it were just four random bank employees. These four were all directors and executives. You don’t find that a bit strange?

    I don’t see any connection. Even Bankers committing suicide is sad. I think I would take a second look at the woman who fell off the roof though.

    Correlation does not imply causation, in other words because they were
    all banking executives that died, that doesn’t emphasize that a
    correlation between the four deaths necessarily implies that those
    deaths causes/lead to some nefarious conspiracy theory.
