Although the fellow mentioned below was in my earlier post on this matter, the count is now up to four.
Dueker’s apparent suicide [on January 29 in Tacoma, WA] was the fourth among financial experts in a week.
A 58-year-old former senior executive at Deutsche Bank AG, William Broeksmit, was found dead on January 26 in his home after an apparent suicide in South Kensington in central London.
The next day, January 27, Tata Motors managing director Karl Slym, 51, was found dead on the fourth floor of the Shangri-La hotel in Bangkok. Police said he could have committed suicide. Mr. Slym was staying on the 22nd floor with his wife, and was attending a board meeting in the Thai capital.
Another tragic incident occurred on January 28, when a 39-year-old Gabriel Magee, a JP Morgan employee, died after falling from the roof of its European headquarters in London.
I am well aware that this could just be a reporting bias, but the timing and the circumstances do seem odd.
