This Week in Banker Murders

For the record.

A former senior executive at Dutch bank ABN Amro was found dead in his home on Saturday along with his wife and daughter, reports WSJ.

The bodies of Jan Peter Schmittmann, 57 years old, his wife, 57, and daughter, 22, were discovered by police in their villa in Laren, a town close to Amsterdam. Police said they hadn't yet determined the cause of the deaths. They said they suspect it was a "family tragedy" but didn't provide further details. The investigation was still under way Sunday.

Juergen Frick, CEO of Bank Frick & Co. AG,  was shot dead in the underground garage of a financial institution in Balzers, Liechtenstein  at 7:30 a.m. local time, reports Bloomberg.

 The suspect, Juergen Hermann, fled the scene in a Smart car with Liechtenstein license plates. According to Bloomberg, Hermann is a fund manager who has been embroiled in a dispute with the Liechtenstein government and Bank Frick for many years, Switzerland’s Radio 1 said.

This is the first homicide in Lichtenstein since 2011.
