So check this out.

Mike DuekerBloomberg reported on Friday that Mike Dueker, chief economist at Russell Investments, was found dead on the side of a Tacoma highway in Washington state. Police have stated that it appears he took his own life.

“He may have jumped over a 4-foot fence before falling down a 40- to 50-foot embankment… the death appeared to be a suicide.”

A statement released by Russell Investments read, in part:

“Mike was highly respected and regarded at Russell Investments and in the broader financial services industry. In the five years that he worked at Russell, he made valuable contributions that helped our clients and many of his fellow associates.”

But wait – there’s more. Last Sunday, William Broeksmit – a former senior manager for Deutsche Bank – was found hanging in his South Kensington, London home. He was 58 years old. The Daily Mail reports that the death was “non suspicious.”

Creeped out yet? If not, this should do it.

Completing the macabre hat-trick, consider that last Tuesday, Gabriel Magee, a vice president of JPMorgan Chase & Co in London, apparently jumped to his death from a building in the Canary Wharf financial district plunging 500 feet to his death after hurling himself off the roof of the JPMorgan Chase and Co.’s European headquarters. Again, police ruled the death a suicide.

So, by my count, that’s three suicides by three prominent bankers over the course of 7 days. Does this portend something big?

Discuss.
