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.
“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.
