COMMENT: “Participo” alerts us to an article from The New York Post  updating the mortality rate  in the financial industry. Although the Post–once a very good newspaper, now a Murdoch sheet–spins the story in a snide sort of way, it is more than a little interesting to see the stunning casualty rate in the financial industry.
These deaths are occurring as numerous investigations are underway into various kinds of malfeasance in the global financial sector, manipulation of the foreign exchange rate, in particular.
We notice that Richard Talley  was omitted from the list. Talley, you will recall, allegedly killed himself with seven or eight shots from a nail gun in the head and torso.
Perhaps the editors felt that not even “Murdochians” would buy that one. Or, perhaps, the investigation into Talley’s death was reclassified as a homicide case.
Long live the Republic!
UPDATE: “Pterrafractyl” contributes the death of yet another JP Morgan executive .
EXCERPT: The financial world has been rattled by a rash of apparent suicides, with some of the best and brightest among the finance workers who have taken their lives since the start of the year.
A majority of the eight suicides of 2014 have been very public demonstrations, which has suicide-prevention experts puzzled.
“Jumping is much less common as a method for suicide in general, so I am struck by the number that have occurred in recent months in this industry,” said Dr. Christine Moutier, chief medical officer of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Moutier also discounts the location of the act as being the driver behind the reason for the suicide.
“The suicide-research literature doesn’t help very much with the question of why the method of these suicides is so out in the open,” she added.
MARCH 12: Kenneth Bellando, 28, an investment banker at Levy Capital, was found dead on the sidewalk outside his building on Manhattan’s East Side, after allegedly jumping from the sixth-story roof, sources said.

EXCERPT: About a decade ago, Jeff Stephens was bicycling shoulder-to-shoulder with Joseph A. Giampapa when the two witnessed another cyclist get fatally struck by a car right in front of them.
“It was sort of a bond that we had, and I would say it’s a burden that we carried,” Stephens said yesterday. “We were in very close contact for months after that situation.”
On Saturday, Stephens, of Worthington, got a phone call from the scene of another accident — this time, it was Giampapa who had been struck by a minivan and killed while bicycling  north of Troy.
Giampapa, 56, of the Northwest Side, was an accomplished long-distance cyclist and corporate attorney for JPMorgan Chase in Columbus. He was a longtime resident of Victorian Village who had moved with his wife, Thelma, into a condominium near Dublin about two years ago.
He was able to ride his bike thousands of miles in short periods of time and covered some of the most difficult terrain in biking, including the same Alpine routes used in the Tour de France, his friends said yesterday.
“He rode many of the famous climbs in the Alps” in both France and Italy, said Greg DuBois, 59, of Worthington, who had traveled with Giampapa on his excursions.
“He could just ride phenomenal distances without stopping and without getting tired.”
Giampapa was biking north on Troy-Sidney Road, near Loy Road, outside of Piqua just after 11 a.m. Saturday when a minivan struck him from behind, Miami County Deputy Todd Tennant said. Giampapa was pronounced dead at the scene.
The minivan driver, Thomas G. Davis, 78, was at fault, Tennant said, but charges haven’t been filed.
Tennant said charges are pending the outcome of a blood toxicology test. But it didn’t appear as though Davis was intoxicated, he added. All of the evidence eventually will be given to a grand jury, Tennant said, but possibly not until May, depending on how long it takes for the blood samples to be processed.
Giampapa’s friends were at a loss about why he was hit.
“It wasn’t a blind turn,” said David Roderick of Athens, who helped organize the 200-kilometer (124.3‑mile) event from Springfield to Quincy to Troy and back that Giampapa was participating in.
“It wasn’t on a hill,” Roderick said. “You could see riders for a very long distance.”
