This one is tricky

It should be absolutely fascinating to hear how this latest banker “suicide” is explained away.

The dust has barely settled on the latest high profile banker suicide in which Deutsche Bank’s associate general counsel, and former SEC regulator, Charlie Gambino was found dead, having hung himself by the neck from a stairway banister, and here comes the latest sad entrant in the dead chronicles of 2014 when earlier today, the Post reports, a Citigroup banker was found dead with his throat slashed in the bathtub “of his swanky downtown apartment, authorities said Wednesday.”

Unlike previous “clearcut” suicides, this time there may have been foul play: the Post adds that “there was no knife recovered at the scene, leading officials to suspect the death was not a suicide, and they were trying to determine who had access to his apartment.”

I like how the absence of a knife leads officials “to suspect the death was not a suicide”. After all, perhaps his fingernails were excessively long and sharp? Or maybe his rubber ducky known to be unusually aggressive? Considering that they got the press to bite on the “suicide” of the banker who shot himself “seven or eight times” with a nailgun as well as that of the scientist who managed to stuff himself in a duffel bag, don’t count them out here.
