November 19, 2014


There was talk about an epidemic of Suicides within the financial industry and I decided to investigate.  Some of the information was never made public, but much of it was.

There is no definitive proof that any of these deaths were orchestrated and no evidence for a conspiracy, however you could say that 2014 was a bad year for the Financial industry.  It saw 17 suicides, 4 murders, 1 assassination attempt and 17 other deaths including a freak accident that crushed a mother of four to death.

5 Deaths in total, spanning from 2008-2014, were related to vehicular accidents or hit and run's.  Of the total deaths, 12 of the financial workers had ties to JP Morgan.  3 people drowned and some causes of death were unknown.

I'm not sure that this is evidence of an epidemic or indicative of some hidden plot but, it surely doesn't look pleasant.  Most of the causes of death have been finalized so any information that could be gained from an investigation has likely been put to rest.

There are however many stories and explanations as to the ultimate motive for these deaths.  People draw conclusions based on the amount of individuals thtat worked for JP Morgan.  Some people say that individuals were about to expose trading scams and were deceased shortly after.  As far as I've been able to find, no evidence for such claims exists.

  1. Suicide by nail gun... shot himself 8 Times! Guess he decided to torture himself along the way? Yeah... No sign of foul play there.

    All those folks found jumping from their work buildings... its almost an epidemic of copy cats. Read the declassified CIA KUBARK manual about how to make an assassination look like an accident... #1 method: a fall from a minimum height from a low window or ledge.

    Yup. No foul play there, just a truckload of bankers falling from a minimum height of 50ft up to the dramatic swan dives off Corp HQ in the middle of the day.

    You forgot the one 50's age banker who got home to the faimy and went for an afternoon run with fido and was NEVER SEEN AGAIN.
