Another “suicide” at JP Morgan, with another clampdown on the facts

A Third Death at JPMorgan and Another Press Lockout on Information
JPMorgan’s Hong Kong Headquarters
By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: February 19, 2014

Since January 28 of this year, one tragic death per week has occurred at JPMorgan among men in their 30s, the latest occurring yesterday — a statistically improbable random occurrence. Each JPMorgan employee worked at a headquarters’ building in a key financial market for JPMorgan – London, New York, and Hong Kong. And in each and every case, the press has been blocked from obtaining vital information to properly do its job.

The deaths started on January 28 when Gabriel Magee, a 39-year old technology Vice President, was found dead on the 9th level rooftop of JPMorgan’s European headquarters at 25 Bank Street in the Canary Wharf section of London. After much prodding by Wall Street On Parade, the Metropolitan Police in London could not confirm that one eyewitness to the fall existed despite London newspapers widely circulating the story that commuters and colleagues observed Magee leap from the building. After more prodding, the Metropolitan Police now state that no further details will be released until a Coroner’s Inquest is held on May 15. That’s more than 100 days from the date of death when mainstream media will have likely lost interest.

According to friends and family, Magee was a vibrant, happy individual with a great sense of humor. He had emailed his girlfriend the evening before his body was discovered that he would be home shortly. When he did not arrive, his girlfriend reported his disappearance to police. Magee’s body was spotted on the 9th level rooftop by co-workers looking out windows on higher floors of the building who then called police at around 8:02 a.m. the next morning.

  1. A Facebook friend asked if I could calculate the odds that at least 8 bank executives would commit suicide in one month. Having no idea how many bank execs there are world-wide, I did a sensitivity analysis. I assumed 5,000 to 1 million execs, applying the U.S. 2011 suicide rate (12 per 100,000).

    For example, assuming 50,000 bank execs. the probability of at least 8 suicides is 6.22E-08 or
    1 in 16,077,970.
