A Manhattan trader was killed when he jumped in front of a moving train this Tuesday

NEW YORK CITY (INTELLIHUB) — Edmund (Eddie) Reilly, 47, a trader at Midtown’s Vertical Group, jumped in front of an LIRR train at 6 a.m. Tuesday near the Syosset train station.
Passengers on the west-bound express train told MTA investigators they saw a man standing by the tracks before he jumped in front of the train.
“Eddie was a great guy,” Rob Schaffer, a managing director at Vertical, told The New York Post in an email. “We are very upset and he will be deeply missed.”
Many reports have indicated that Reilly had been depressed about a recent divorce, but his suicide, in light of the dozens of others to take place globally this past month, is raising the suspicion of many researchers.
For those of you who have not been following this developing story, all month we have been reporting on the suspicious string of deaths that have hit the financial industry. To make matters even more suspicious, the vast majority of these deaths have been ruled a suicide, or the details have been swept under the rug entirely.
Those who had high profile deaths, like the man who jumped from the top of the JP Morgan HQ building in Europe are highly publicized, but overall, very few details about any of these deaths have been made public.
All of the details on each story can be found below, and we will continue to keep a running tally in the coming weeks. Please feel free to comment below, or use our contact information to send us leads and tips on this situation.
