Swiss Central Banker Goes On Murder-Suicide Rampage

Swiss National Bank building
For the record.

A risk manager at the globally important central bank of Switzerland, the Swiss National Bank, murdered his neighbor, a high profile lawyer Micahel Wagner, and then himself on Sunday,

The banker, who has only been identified as Marin G, was part of a team of around 15 specialists, who take care of the huge positions on the balance sheet of the SNB.  Only, the ECB, BOJ and the Fed have larger balance sheets.

Police believe the neighbor suspected Wagner of having an affair with his wife and that the murder-suicide is not connected to G's work at SNB.

  1. Imagine if, instead of working at a central bank, he had worked at Uber, or a Bitcoin-related company. There would be seismic calls for governmental inquiries into the gig economy or the "dark" side of crypto-currencies.
