Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another banker jumping off the top of buildings, it has happened again, and in a strange context, for there has been a death of a bio-terrorism expert as well. Let’s take the banker death first, then the bioterrorism expert’s death, and then my “high octane speculation of the day.
The article states that Mr. Kevin Bell, a 47 year old investment banker, had been depressed, on medications, and of course, jumped to his death. Implication: suicide because of “depression.” Nothing to see here, move along. My heart certainly goes out to his family.
This said, there is a disturbing pattern here, for the unfortunate Mr. Bell does fit a pattern we’ve seen elsewhere, of bankers in London, Paris, and Hong Kong walking off the rooftops or high balconies of buildings, or walking in front of trains, and so on. In one case, of course, we’ve seen the death of a banker in the mortgage business dying of several nails from a nail gun to the head. And in one instance, death by gunshot – ruled a suicide – even though the victim-shooter managed to put the gun that did the deed into the glovebox of his car, after the deed.
In Mr. Bell’s case, after the article manages to mention his depression and that he was “taking medications”, with the clear implication of Mr. Bell’s death being a suicide, the Post article then mentions this little tidbit, a “tidbit” I cannot help but qualify as “greasy and suspicious”:
Bell, a graduate of Duke University, worked at Arrowgrass Capital Partners, where he was head of credit risk, according to his LinkedIn page.
He previously worked at Saba Capital Management, Citadel Investment group, Citigroup and Deutsche Bank, according to his page.
And, incidentally, the building in which Mr. Bell and his family lived, was apparently the site of another suicide:
A man who works in a nearby doctor’s office was stunned about the suicide.
“Oh my God, another one?” he said in disbelief. “Somebody committed suicide a few months ago … on the other side of the building. I can’t believe it, it’s almost exactly the same thing, but just around the side.”
Obviously, if you’ve been following the Deutsche Bank saga as I’ve outlined it on this website and as other researchers have been following it, you’ll know that that bank is up to its earlobes in financial practices of a “dubious” nature. Consider only the strange scam involving Europe’s oldest bank, the Banca dei Paschi di Sienna (see
Then, of course, there is Deutsche Bank’s strange appearance in the events of 9/11 via one of its offshoots placing trades that would tend to indicate prior knowledge of the event (not surprising, given it’s connections to the (out)House of Saud as I outlined in my book Hidden Finance, Rogue Networks, and Secret Sorcery). And Mr. Bell is not the only banker with a connection to the big German bank who has turned up dead by suicide. Additionally, Mr. Bell fits another pattern embedded within some of the banker deaths, namely, he was involved in credit risk assessment.
Turning from this death to another recent one requires a bit of background introduction. During the Reagan years and on into the Bush-Clinton years, another pattern of strange deaths emerged: physicists – and particularly those working on some aspect of Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative – were similarly jumping off bridges, or jogging when they inadvertently ran in between two oncoming cars and were literally smashed to death, or dying in a variety of other strange – and of course, “suicidal” – ways. These deaths were, at that time, a topic of major focus on what was then the early “alternative media”, and of course, the conspiracy theories about them abounded, the most popular being that the KGB was behind them, in an effort to sabotage Mr. Reagan’s pet “Star Wars” project.
Then the pattern shifted away from the deaths of physicists and scientists whose expertise could make or break the Strategic Defense Initiative, to biophysicists, geneticists, and “experts in bioterrorism.” Again, similar types of bizarre “death by suicide” were reported: people jumped off bridges and buildings (or were thrown off), took a jog between cars, and so on. Which brings us to this unusual story from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and shared by Mr. V.T.:
A man killed Friday while riding his bike in the 10600 block of Riverview Drive has been identified as a St. Louis University professor and bioterrorism expert Robert Mark Buller.
Buller, 67, was a professor in the department of molecular microbiology and immunology at SLU. The university posted an obituary that said he was “one of the nation’s foremost poxvirus researchers.”
“He was a member of multiple national committees and governmental advisory groups, some that advised the intelligence community on biodefense,” SLU said in its obituary.
See you on the flip side…
