COLUMBUS, OHIO (INTELLIHUB) — A high level JP Morgan bankruptcy attorney has been killed in an incident involving a man who has not been charged with a crime.  The incident was initially reported as a hit and run, but days later the local police claimed that a suspect had immediately turned himself in.

JP Morgan lawyer Joseph Giampapa, age 56, was reportedly hit by a minivan and thrown 150 ft, he was later pronounced dead at the scene. Giampapa was biking north on Troy-Sidney Road, near Loy Road, outside of Piqua, in Ohio, just after 11 a.m. on Saturday, when the minivan struck him from behind, Miami County Deputy Todd Tennant said.

The alleged minivan driver, 78 year old Thomas G. Davis, was at fault, but charges haven’t been filed, Tennant said.

Originally this story was reported as a hit and run, but then days later news sources began reporting that the 78 year old man immediately called police after running him over.

“It wasn’t a blind turn,” said David Roderick, a fellow cyclist who was friends with Giampapa.

“It wasn’t on a hill,” Roderick said. “You could see riders for a very long distance.”

“Joe was an extremely accomplished cyclist a responsible cyclist and that’s what makes this tragedy so mind numbing,said Jeff Stephens, another friend of Giampapa. “That road that Joe was on was flat. No trees. It was just wide open visibility.”

Mainstream media sources are only mentioning his close affiliation with JP Morgan in passing, giving it only a sentence or two of coverage.  Meanwhile, they are dedicating paragraphs and entire articles to his involvement in cycling and windsurfing.

The fact that he was worked for JP Morgan was listed in:

  • Trace Smith

    Wtf…why is this mans death being portrayed as the other suspicious “Suicides” according to the very article above..a 78 yr old man called police right away!!!!! Apparently…this was just a tragic accident. ?? So why continue to perpetrate a conspiracy? Until the full story comes out on the 78yr old..evidence collected..ect…people should stfu until we know for sure. I 100% agree that there is a hit list going on…! But..concerning this…again…maybe nothing to it.

  • Consider Biking

    The death is tragic, but to lump it in with these other non-biking deaths in the financial industry is a stretch. The driver will be charged, the authorities are awaiting toxicology tests and then it will go to the Grand Jury. A crime was committed, there will be charges. – Jody

    This is ‘intellihub’ after all. It’s no different than any other media source. They have a narrative they want to portray and everything they report has to be colored in a way that compliments the story they are trying to tell.
