Recently, I started doing research on
dead bankers, and was amazed at what I found. My
research led to some interesting results:
David Bird, 55, long-time reporter for the Wall Street
Journal working at the Dow Jones news room, went for a
walk on Saturday, January 11, 2014 near his New Jersey
home and disappeared without a trace. Mr. Bird was a
reporter of the oil and commodity markets which happened
to be under investigation by the U.S. Senate Permanent
Subcommittee on Investigations for price manipulation.
Andrei Kozlov-CENTRAL BANKER
Andrei Andreyevich Kozlov (Russian: Андре́й Андре́евич
Козло́в; January 6, 1965 – September 14, 2006) was the
first deputy chairman of the Central Bank of the Russian
Federation from 1997 to 1999 and again in 2002 to 2006.
Kozlov was fluent in Russian, German, and English.He was
married, and had three children.Kozlov died on September
14, 2006, in Hospital No. 33 in Moscow from gunshot
wounds.Kozlov was born in Moscow and served in the
Soviet Army from 1983 to 1985. He then attended the
faculty of international economics at Moscow Institute
of Finance, where he graduated in 1989. He began
working at the Soviet Union's central bank in the same
year as a senior economist. He left the Bank of Russia
in 1999 to work in the private sector, before returning
to the Bank of Russia in April 2002.
Kozlov introduced a deposit insurance system and founded
the Deposit Insurance Agency to restore public faith in
the banking system after the 1998 Russian financial
crisis. Kozlov prevented other banks from continuing
operation by denying them access to the deposit
insurance system. As head of bank supervision, Kozlov
withdrew licences from banks suspected of money
laundering and other crimes. In 2004, Kozlov took
control of Sodbiznesbank, accusing the bank of engaging
in laundering ransom money from hostage-taking. In
2006 he revoked the license of Neftyanoi Bank.
In 2005, Kommersant reported that Kozlov is "valued as a
top-of-the-line professional. He is also given due
credit as one of those who started the formation of the
stock market in Russia." After his death, Kommersant
credited Kozlov with combating "gray schemes," illegal
importing practices that minimize customs duties and
value-added tax payments.
On September 8, 2006, the Friday before his murder,
Kozlov gave a speech at a banking conference in Sochi,
saying, "Those who have been found out laundering
criminal money should probably be barred from staying in
the banking profession for life. Such people disgrace
the banking system."
Raiffeisen Zentralbank in Austria and Diskont Bank in
Russia have been accused of money laundering. In
September 2006, Andrey Kozlov revoked Diskont's license.
Just days later Kozlov was murdered.
According to Svetlana Petrenko, spokeswoman for the
Moscow prosecutor's office, two gunmen shot Kozlov in
the head and neck at 8:50 PM, but other law
enforcement officials claim Kozlov was shot at 8:30 PM.
Inna Sergeyeva, deputy head doctor at the Hospital No.
33 in Moscow, said Kozlov later died of his injuries.
Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov ordered Prosecutor
General Yury Chaika, who is personally prosecuting the
case,to provide regular reports on the investigation.
Kozlov was near the Spartak sports center with his
driver, Alexander Semyonov, when they were shot.
Semyonov died at the scene and Kozlov died after doctors
unsuccessfully performed emergency surgery.
The police later found weapons they suspect were used in
the attacks: a "handmade pistol and a modified Baikal
pistol... in tall grass near the Spartak sports center,
250-300 meters away from the site of the incident,
during the investigation of the crime scene."
Boris Gryzlov, speaker of the State Duma, the lower
chamber of parliament, said, "The central bank revoked
licenses of a number of banks, and it's quite possible
that the gangsters linked to them might have put out a
contract on him."

and 2 children)
William Michael Parente was born in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn
to Willie and Roccolyn Parente; the elder Parente was a
New York State Police trooper. The younger William
Parente grew up in Bay Ridge as an only child, summering
his family in Long Beach. Parente graduated Brooklyn
College and Brooklyn Law School, assisted by Anthony J.
Russo, an uncle who paid his tuition to both
Parente married Betty Mazzarella in 1977. After becoming
a member of the New York bar, Parente joined a Wall
Street law partnership, moving into a private practice
in 1988 after discovering his wife was pregnant with
their first child. After moving to Garden City, New
York, Parente and family returned frequently to his old
Brooklyn neighborhood for local delicacies, staying in
touch with old friends, visiting his mother, and
remembering his childhood Halloweens by returning to the
same neighborhood with his two daughters each year for
trick or treat.
Late in his legal career, Parente was involved in making
what he called "bridge loans."
"He essentially worked as a bank," reported a friend,
making comparatively high-risk loans to projects pending
In order to fund those loans, he allegedly drew on
assets from investments for which he had responsibility.
at least one investor called asking for money back,
Parente could neither immediately return the funds, nor
successfully explain his inability to do so.
On April 20, 2009, the bodies of four people were found
by staff in room 1029 of the Sheraton hotel in Towson,
Maryland. Police were called. The bodies were identified
as those of William Parente, 59, of Garden City, Long
Island, his wife Betty Mazzarella Parente (born February
6, 1951), and their daughters Stephanie, 19, and
Catherine, 11. Stephanie was a student at Loyola
College. The cause of death was found to be
It was later found that Parente had purchased a knife
after killing his family.
Police believe that each of the murders took place at a
different time. Betty was believed to be the first
victim, having been killed some time during the day on
April 19. Catherine was believed to have been killed
after. Both victims were laid on a bed in the room.
Stephanie, a speech-language pathology major, was
believed to have been killed later on Sunday after she
had left the Loyola campus for a visit from her family
that had surprised her. Her roommates were also
surprised because she had been studying for a chemistry
be taken the following day.
Around midnight, after the murders of Betty and their
daughters, Stephanie's roommate had called the room at
Sheraton to check on her. Parente answered the phone,
and replied that Stephanie had been staying there. He
believed at the time by Stephanie's roommate, who was
unaware that Stephanie was already dead. That roommate
later reported that Parente sounded "odd" over the
phone, and did not sound like himself. Parente is
believed to have killed himself some time on Monday
morning. Hotel staff noticed that the Parentes did not
out on Monday, and there was concern from Loyola College
about Stephanie not showing up that day.
The motive was believed to be Parente's financial
difficulties and a pending investigation against him. It
learned by Baltimore County Police while they were
investigating the crime that Parente was also being
investigated by the FBI for a scheme in which investors
were potentially defrauded out of $20 million. In
particular, a complaint had been made against Parente
for the alleged loss of $450,000.
According to the information learned in the financial
investigation, $245,000 in checks Parente had written to

New York attorney general's office. Some investors
reported following his death that they had "lost

On a day when members of Holy Family Catholic Community
parish ordinarily would have seen Francie Billotti-Wood
volunteering in the church nursery, people in Middletown
were left with agonizing questions about what could
have gone so wrong in a family with such outward
The Rev. Kevin Farmer opened the 9 a.m. service
yesterday by telling more than 400 somber parishioners
had "no words" to describe the "unspeakable act" that
Billotti-Wood, 33, and her three young children had
suffered at the hands of their husband and father.
Frederick County authorities say Christopher A. Wood,
34, killed his wife and children, cutting and shooting
them, before he took his own life.
Some church members hugged and cried. Others looked
stoic, disbelief written on their faces. A few blocks
neighbors added to the memorial of stuffed animals,
flowers and notes on the front porch of the house where
unthinkable became reality Saturday morning when the
bodies were found by Billotti-Wood's father.
Billotti-Wood and the children -- Chandler, 5, Gavin, 4,
and Fiona, 2, who were in their pajamas -- had each
been shot once, and they had been shot in the beds where
they were found, officials said. Wood's body was on the
floor of the couple's bedroom. Authorities said the
victims also suffered "severe lacerations and cut
but they would not detail those injuries. A handgun and
shotgun were found in the home.
Cpl. Jennifer Bailey, a spokeswoman for the Frederick
County Sheriff's Office, said yesterday that
were awaiting autopsy results and sorting through 50
interviews with friends, relatives and neighbors of the
family. Authorities have not established a motive or a
timeline for the killings.
Authorities said Chris Wood left five suicide notes in
the house, one of which suggested that he had
psychological problems and was taking medication. In at
least one note, Wood apologized for what he did,
authorities said. Investigators were exploring whether
financial problems or a possibly stressful move last
from Florida to Maryland might have contributed to what
happened, Bailey said.
"There's still a lot to do yet," Bailey said.
At Holy Family, Billotti-Wood was known as an avid
volunteer. She had signed up to teach children's liturgy
Sundays and religious education for second-graders
during the week. She also was on the parent advisory
Deacon George Sisson's homily was largely devoted to the
family. "We read about them in other places," he said
of such events. "Now it's not other places. It's a
couple blocks from this church."
Sheriff's deputies had never before been called to the
family's two-story house on Washington Street, and there
was no known history of domestic violence, authorities
As details of the couple's history emerged yesterday, a
picture formed of a young family brimming with
potential. Billotti-Wood's friends described her as
having a "servant's heart," a talented, compassionate
organizer with a résumé full of social service work and
volunteerism. Wood, who worked in railroad marketing and
sales, seemed on a solid career path when the two
married in Florida in 2003.
"He had a good job with CSX, a nice car and everything
going for him, from what I could tell," said Gary
a warehouse manager at Second Harvest Food Bank of
Northeast Florida, where Billotti-Wood worked as an
planner from 2001 to 2003.Porter said he and Billotti-Wood were roommates when she
first met Wood at a charitable event she had organized.
She soon left work to start a family, he said.
"She got married, she got pregnant and decided to be a
stay-at-home mom," Porter said. "She was an amazing,
caring person. In the industry we're in, you have
compassion for people, and she was above and beyond
In a blog maintained by Billotti-Wood, she described in
May 2008 plans to move from Jacksonville, Fla., to
Maryland. The posting indicated that Wood would be
working during the week in New Jersey but gave no
summer, Billotti-Wood was referring to their home in
Middletown, a small community 10 miles outside the city
Frederick, which they apparently were renting.
The couple had relatives in the Maryland area, including
Billotti-Wood's brother, who at one time was a deputy
in the Frederick County sheriff's office. Billotti-Wood's
parents were founding members of the Holy Family
Catholic Community parish.
CSX confirmed that Wood was an employee but offered no
details. He still has a voice-mail account as a senior
account manager in chemical sales in the company's
Baltimore office; his message had not been updated since
noted that he would be out of the office for a few days
last week. It was unclear how long he had the position
or whether he moved to that office after working for a
while in New Jersey.
Billotti-Wood hinted on her blog that Wood was not
satisfied with the recent shifts in his life, saying in
posting last month that he did not "do change well" and
describing difficulties with new job responsibilities
that called for him to act more like a "mover and
In interviews, most neighbors and church members seemed
to know little about Wood. Mary Beachley, 54, said he
and Billotti-Wood coached their sons' soccer team
together. "He just seemed to be so soft-spoken, and he
great with the kids," she said.
Jane Durant, director of the preschool at Middletown
United Methodist Church, said she last saw Billotti-Wood
Thursday, when the mother dropped off Gavin. Neither
showed up Friday, she said, and no one called ahead to
report the absence. Durant said Gavin went to preschool
five days a week and his sister, Fiona, once a week.
Their mother, she said, volunteered in Gavin's classroom
and was a member of the moms club.
Heather Heimes McCubbin said in a Facebook message that
she met Billotti-Wood nearly 25 years ago, when they
would wait for rides home together at Middletown
Elementary School. Billotti-Wood graduated from
School in 1994, McCubbin said.
McCubbin, who started a Facebook group in Billotti-Wood's
memory, said her former classmate was active in the

children's names under the heading "employer" and her

INVESTORS: WE LOST MILLIONS TO LI MAN WHO KILLED FAMILY
By Associated PressApril 23, 2009 | 6:27am
TOWSON, Md. — At least three investors claim they lost
millions of dollars working with a New York tax attorney
who police say killed himself after fatally beating and
asphyxiating his wife and two daughters, a lawyer said
Attorney Steven B. Drelich said Thursday that at least
three people have called his office to say they lost
about $4 million to William Parente, who was found dead
Monday in a Maryland hotel room along with his family.“We’ve been contacted by others who have lost millions
of dollars,” Drelich said. “What he did to his family is
unforgivable. The face of evil can be pretty ordinary.”Drelich’s partner, Bruce Montague, told authorities on
Tuesday after learning of the deaths that he lost at least $450,000 to Parente.Drelich said firm officials contacted Baltimore County
police, who referred them to the FBI and New York
Attorney General’s office. The FBI has since begun
investigating the losses.Authorities have said Parente did not leave any notes
that might show he was driven by investment business
troubles, and detectives say they don’t have a motive
for the slayings.“We have not reached that determination and we may never
reach that determination,” Baltimore County police
spokesman Cpl. Mike Hill said.

A Long Island lawyer who fatally beat and suffocated his
wife and two daughters in a hotel room -- then remained
with the bodies for nearly half a day before killing
himself -- was under investigation for allegedly running
$20 million Ponzi scheme, sources said yesterday.

was vice president at JPMorgan Chase & Co’s (JPM) London
Gabriel Magee, a Vice President at JPMorgan in London,
plunged to his death from the roof of the 33-story
European headquarters of JPMorgan in Canary Wharf. Magee
was involved in “Technical architecture oversight for
planning, development, and operation of systems for
fixed income securities and interest rate derivatives”
on his online Linkedin profile.
It’s important to note that JPMorgan, like Deutsche
Bank, is under investigation for its potential
in rigging foreign exchange rates. JPMorgan is also
reportedly under investigation by the same U.S. Senate
Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations for its alleged
involvement in rigging the physical commodities markets
in the U.S. and London.
Regarding the initial reports of his death, journalist
Pam Martens of Wall Street on Paradeastutely exposed the
controlled, scripted details of the media accounts
surrounding Magee’s death in an article written on
9, 2014. Ms. Martens writes:
“According to numerous sources close to the
investigation of Gabriel Magee’s death, almost nothing
reported about his death has been accurate. This appears
to stem from an initial poorly worded press release
issued by the Metropolitan Police in London which may
have been a result of bad communications between it and
JPMorgan or something more deliberate on someone’s
part.” [Emphasis added].
Ms. Martens also notes:
No solid evidence exists currently to suggest that the
death was a suicide. In fact, there is a strong piece of
evidence pointing in the opposite direction. Magee had
emailed his girlfriend, Veronica, on the evening of
January 27 to say that he was about to leave the office
and would see her shortly. [Emphasis added].
Based on information she developed, it appears likely
that Magee did not meet his fate on the morning his body
was discovered, but hours earlier. Considering the
possibility that Magee might now have died in the manner
publicized, Ms. Martens offers speculation, and notes it
If Magee became aware that incriminating emails, instant
messages, or video teleconferences were not turned over
in their entirety to Senate investigators or Justice
Department prosecutors, that might be reason enough for
Looking at the death of Magee in the context of a larger
conspiracy, it is difficult not to suspect foul play
and media manipulation.
30)Richard Talley, 57, was the founder and CEO of
American Title, a company he founded in 2001. Talley and
company were under investigation by state insurance
regulators at the time of his death. He was found in the
garage of his Colorado home by a family member who
called authorities. Talley reportedly died from seven or
eight “self-inflicted” wounds from a nail gun fired into
his torso and head.
31)Mike Dueker, 50, who had worked for Russell
Investment for five years, was found dead close to the
Narrows Bridge in Washington State. Dueker was reported
missing on January 29, 2014. Police stated that he
“could have” jumped over a fence and fallen 15 meters to
his death, and are treating the case as a suicide.
Before joining Russell Investments, Dueker was an
assistant vice president and research economist at the
Reserve Bank of St. Louis from 1991 to 2008. There he
served as an associate editor of the Journal of Business
and Economic Statistics and was editor ofMonetary
