London Authorities Probe Two Mysterious Banker Deaths

Police and coroner officials in London have launched probes into the mysterious deaths of two bankers.

Investigators began Monday investigating the death of William Broeksmit, 58, a retired Deutsche Bank executive found hanged in his London home on Jan. 26, reports NyPo.

At the time of his death, a company memo said, “He was considered by many of his peers to be among the finest minds in the fields of risk and capital management,” Deutsche Bank co-CEO Anshu Jain wrote.

The other banker inquest — set to begin in late May — is looking into the mysterious death of Gabriel Magee, the 39-year-old vice president of technology at JPMorgan, whose body was discovered on the ninth-floor roof of a building connected to the firm’s 33-story London headquarters.

Magee — an American banker working in the European headquarters of JPMorgan in the Canary Wharf section of London — reportedly emailed his girlfriend the night before his body was found to say he was on his way home from the office.

According to NyPo, when he did not return, his girlfriend contacted police to make a missing person report.

Meanwhile, detectives in Stamford, Conn., are still awaiting toxicology reports in the death of Ryan Crane, the JPMorgan executive director.

Crane, 37, was found dead in his Stamford home on Feb. 3.
