    Partner At Paulson & Company Jumps To His Death In Midtown Manhattan

    A 56-year-old partner at Paulson & Co., who was best known for losing billions of his clients' money to Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme when he ran the Fairfield Greenwich fund of funds, leaped to his death from the luxury Sofitel hotel in midtown Manhattan. Charles W. Murphy was wearing a dark business suit when he plunged to his death from the 24th floor of the 45 W. 44th St. building at around 4:42pm on Monday.

    Murphy was working at the Fairfield Greenwich Group when Madoff was arrested in December 2008; as a result of the fraud Fairfield Greenwich lost $7.5 billion of its customers’ cash. In December 2013, Fairfield Greenwich settled a class action suit for $80. 2million, according to a website for Madoff's victims. They were sued for failing to protect investor assets. Almost 3,000 investors claimed a portion of the settlement. Murphy was a Partner and Member of the Executive Committee.

    The group's Fairfield Sentry Fund was the disgraced financier's biggest feeder fund. Up until the scandal, the fund had been paid more than 11 percent interest each year following a 15-year relationship with Madoff.


    At the time of his death, Murpthy was working with Paulson & Company.

    Founder John Paulson released a statement on Monday night saying 'We are extremely saddened by this news. Charles was an extremely gifted and brilliant man, a great partner and a true friend.'


    The father-of-two financier, who was married to his second wife, plummeted 20 floors before hitting a fourth floor terrace, according to the NYPD, and died at the scene according to the Mail.

    The Sofitel hotel where Murphy killed himself made headlines in 2011, when French politician and head of the IMF, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was accused of raping a maid in one of the hotel's suites. Three months later, all charges were dismissed. In 2012, he settled a lawsuit with the maid.

    Murphy was renting a room at the time, even though he owns a $36 million townhouse just 20 blocks away on the Upper East Side.

    Murphy's limestone townhouse on 67th street is still on the market for $36MM

    On the day Madoff was taken into federal custody in 2008, Murphy was working with Fairfield to set up a new fund. The Koch brothers, Charles and David, moved $2 billion overseas that they managed to make from Madoff before his scheme collapsed. Most of that involved transfers from funds that were operated by Fairfield Greenwich Group.

    Murphy is now the fourth person connected to Madoff to commit suicide in the years following the Ponzi scheme scandal. French aristocrat Rene Thierry Magon De La Villehuchet was found dead in 2008 just after the news broke. His AIA Group lost $1.5 billion. Ex-U.S. Army major William Foxton, 65, killed himself in 2009. A year later, Madoff's son Mark was found dead after he hanged himself in his New York apartment.

    Murphy was previously a research analyst at Morgan Stanley, and was cohead of the European financial institutions group at Credit Suisse. He graduated from Harvard Law School and MIT Sloan School of Management according to the Mail.

    In 2007, before the Madoff collapse, Murphy bought the East 67th Street townhouse of Matthew Bronfman for $33 million. Murphy reportedly tried to off-load the limestone gem, built in 1899, during the Madoff crisis but found no takers. He listed it again in 2016 for $50million, according to The Real Deal. The house is now for sale at an asking price of $36 million, listed with Corcoran

    It appears that at least part of Murphy's troubles have been financial: a parking attendant at a nearby garage told the New York Post that Murphy's wife, Annabella , crashed their Honda Odyssey last summer but could not afford to fix it. 'She didn't even have enough money to pay for the damage,' the attendant said.

    Murphy's first wife, former Heather Kerzner, got married to hotel billionaire Sol Kerzner after the pair split. They were married for 11 years before their marriage ended in divorce.

    According to the Daily News, Murphy was being treated for depression before his suicide.

    Mystery death of tycoon banker Michael Treichl
    IT is a tragic end to what had been a seemingly enviable life.
    By Dominic Utton
    PUBLISHED: 09:24, Wed, Jun 21, 2017 | UPDATED: 09:53, Wed, Jun 21, 2017

    [​IMG]SWNS

    Michael Treichl was found dead at his home on Friday, reported as suicide
    On Friday Michael Treichl, the 68-year-old multi-millionaire owner of 500-year-old Parnham House in Dorset, was found dead in what has been reported as a suicide.

    His death comes just two months after a blaze tore through the £15million mansion, leaving only the exterior walls intact.

    Related articles
    Police confirmed they were treating the fire as suspicious and arrested Mr Treichl as part of their enquiries.

    He was later released without charge or any bail conditions being imposed, “pending further investigation”.

    He leaves behind wife Emma, 54, and two teenage children, as well as Emma’s children from her first marriage.

    A spokesman for the family said: “Michael Treichl sadly passed away on Friday June 16 having suffered from severe depression.

    [​IMG]SWNS

    Michael was arrested for arson when a blaze started at his £15million mansion but was later released
    The horrific news leaves so many question marks. Who really knows what was going through his head?

    Chris Turner, chairman of the local council

    Michael enjoyed a long and distinguished career in finance. He was a devoted family man and husband to his wife Emma, their two children and his two step-children.”

    Treichl had bought Parnham House in 2001 two years after he married former Vogue model Emma – the pair are said to have met when an artist friend of hers was commissioned to paint his portrait.

    After paying £4million for the Grade I-listed house they lavished a further £10million updating it, including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, stables, a gym and a cinema.

    It also housed the banker’s collection of medieval armour as well as furniture, paintings and other heirlooms described as “irreplaceable items of historic and cultural value”.

    The walls were covered in trophies from Treichl’s hunting expeditions. When asked what he shot he once told a magazine interviewer: “In England, everything that flies. In Scotland, deer.”

    The same magazine described the interior of Parnham House: “In front of the fireplace is a magnificent polar bear, only head and fur.

    In one of the guest rooms you stumble over the head of a lioness. All Treichl victims.”

    Born into a family of Austrian financiers and founder of his own hedge fund Audley Capital Advisors, Treichl had been described by a German business magazine as “a global player of our time”.

    [​IMG]NC

    Michael suffered with severe depression amid his death
    He himself said: “Money is not an end goal but you can make a beautiful life with it.”

    It seems that at Parnham House he set about doing just that. As well as the hunting trophies, the suits of armour, the swimming pools and other luxuries, Treichl is said to have run the house “like Downton Abbey”.

    There was a butler – with a second as backup for the weekends, a chef, a secretary, two cleaners, a housekeeper and groundsmen.

    Treichl would fly to and from the house by helicopter. But after fire wrecked the mansion in April questions were asked as to how and why the blaze had started.

    There were suggestions that silver antiques had been mysteriously piled outside an entrance and a jerry can capable of holding 25 litres of fuel was said to have been found on the lawn.

    On the night of the fire Treichl had been in London while Emma and the children were in the South of France.

    After his arrest Treichl released a statement saying: “I am devastated at the loss of our home.

    The restoration of Parnham has been my life’s work and it is insane to think I could have destroyed it.”

    [​IMG]SWNS

    Michael owned a 500-year-old Parnham House in Dorset worth millions


    The destruction of the mansion was not only devastating for Treichl, however. Parnham House is known as one of our most beautiful stately homes.

    Built in 1522 it was remodelled in the 19th century by John Nash and during the war Allied commanders drew up D-Day plans there.

    But if the fire was shocking, Treichl’s sudden death has now left the whole community reeling.

    Chris Turner, chairman of the local council, said: “The horrific news leaves so many question marks. Who really knows what was going through his head? It comes as such a surprise as I thought that Mr Treichl was intent on rebuilding the house.”

    And former chauffeur Michael Lomax, who now runs a guesthouse in nearby Beaminster, said: “I can’t believe it. His death and the fire must surely be connected but quite how it’s impossible to say.

    “On first impressions he was a very abrupt man but in the end he was one of the nicest people I ever knew. He was a man that had everything – lots of money and a great family. But who knows what’s really going on?”

    Notorious Spanish Banker Found Dead With Shotgun Blast To The Chest

    The former chairman of one of Spain's largest banks has been found dead with a shotgun blast to the chest in a private hunting estate in southern Spain, the country's Civil Guard said Wednesday.

    [​IMG]

    According to AP, Miguel Blesa, the former head of the now defunct Caja Madrid savings bank - whose brushes with the law and extravagant hunting trips came to symbolize the excesses of the country's economic boom - was awaiting the result of an appeal to a six-year prison sentence for misusing corporate credit cards (if not Spiderman towels) issued by the infamous Bankia, another defunct bank.

    Witnesses who were with Blesa in the private property near the southern city of Cordoba told police that the former banker left the group early Wednesday morning saying he was going to take his car. They described hearing one gunshot moments later, the Civil Guard spokeswoman said cited by AP adding that an autopsy would be required to determine the exact cause of the death.

    The unpopular Blesa chaired Caja Madrid from 1996 to 2010, a period which coincided with Spain's economic boom, which however was followed by devastating bust.

    As Reuters adds, the former chairman and other top Spanish bankers such as former IMF chief Rodrigo Rato, "came to symbolize the disconnection of Spain's elite from ordinary citizens during the financial crisis, which was marred by one of the highest unemployment rates in Europe."

    Leaked pictures to the press of Blesa on exotic hunting trips in 2013, at the height of Spain's recession, caused uproar as they showed him posing with a rifle next to the corpses of various recently-shot animals, including a bear, a lion, an oryx, a hippopotamus and the heads of two water buffalo.

    Blesa and Rato, who chaired Bankia between 2010 and 2012, appealed a March ruling by Spain's National Court that sentenced them to 6 and 4 1/2 years in prison respectively for misusing the saving bank's corporate credit cards. At the time, Blesa received the highest punishment among 65 defendants found guilty of hiding irregular and undeclared expenses with the cards. The two former bankers were released on bail while the appeal is resolved.

    Under Blesa, Caja Madrid, along with other savings banks, moved from the traditional role of providing deposit accounts and small business loans to huge mortgage lending and marketing complex financial instruments during a property boom. It was also the source of its downfall. Caja Madrid was merged with six other savings banks in 2010 to form the ill-fated lender Bankia, which as regular readers are all too aware, also did not last long: as a resul tof massive holes in the merged entity's balance sheet, Bankia was also bailed out in 2012 in Spain's biggest ever bank rescue.

    The former banker was also in the midst of a lawsuit involving irregular bonuses during his time at Caja Madrid. In 2013, he was briefly jailed for irregularities in the purchase of shares in the City National Bank of Florida, but a court later acquitted him.

    Adding tax evasion to injury - now terminal - Blesa also appeared in leaked documents of the Mossack Fonseca law firm, which was investigated in 2016 for managing offshore accounts globally. According to media reports he used the Panamanian firm in 1989 to create a company in the British Virgin Islands in order to invest in Spain-based companies.

    A spokeswoman with the police force said initial inquiries into the death of the 69 year-old Miguel Blesa had ruled out a homicide.

    The dike is leaking but they can't kill them all. Eventually one of them will successfully expose the underbelly of what's happened in America and across Europe. I hope that day comes soon!

    Wall Street Journal Editorial Writer Is Found Dead

    Joseph Rago, a 34-year-old Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial writer for The Wall Street Journal, was found dead at his home on Thursday evening. Police officers discovered Mr. Rago’s body at his apartment in Manhattan at around 8 p.m. after a request to check on him, a spokeswoman for the New York Police Department said.

    “It is with a heavy heart that we confirm the death of Joseph Rago, a splendid journalist and beloved friend,” Paul Gigot, the editor of The Journal’s editorial page, said in a statement. “Joe and his family are in our thoughts and prayers, and we will be celebrating his work in Saturday’s paper.”

    Mr. Gigot had notified the newspaper’s security officials after Mr. Rago did not appear at work on Thursday, according to an article published on The Journal’s website on Friday. The officials then contacted the police.

    Foul play is not suspected, the police spokeswoman said.

    Asked about Mr. Rago, a spokeswoman for the New York City medical examiner’s office said, “The cause and manner of death are pending further studies following today’s examination.”

    Another Elite Banker Jumps to Their Death with a Disturbing Warning

    August 29 2017

    An Elite Wall Street banker has leaped to her death from the roof of her luxury New York City home leaving a bone-chilling message behind.

    Lindsay Jacoby, a former JP Morgan and CitiGroup trader and CEO or her own firm, jumped from the roof on the 4th floor of her Upper East Side home screaming "there are demons everywhere".

    The 40-year-old mother of two committed suicide at around 10:30 a.m. at her historic brick home located on an enclave between East 86th and 87th streets, according to sources.

    It's unclear whether she left her note, neighbors stated that she led a "dream life" and "always seemed happy".

    This is the second time this month that a top banker has killed them selves in such a way, after a high-level senior executive of an investment firm, described as "one of the big-wigs" jumped from the London Stock Exchange.

    According to one of the witnesses, he "ran along the walkway shouting and put one hand on the glass wall and jumped over it with both feet." "He didn't even hesitate. He was shouting, 'the end is coming! Get out while you still can!'"

    According to NYP, a man who said Lindsay was his daughter screamed in “agony” after finding out she had jumped, according to passersby.“

    It was really harrowing. He screamed and screamed. We thought he was having a heart attack. He came out of the building and said to call 911. But he was clutching his heart,” said Jeffrey B. “It wasn’t until the police showed up that we realized it was a suicide.”

    This is a nice neighborhood, another passerby added.The woman and her husband Seth Jacoby purchased the one-family home in 2014 for $3.6 million, taking out a $2.5 million mortgage, according to public records.The couple has two young children.

    She previously held high-ranking positions at Oppenheimer and Co., JPMorgan and Citigroup, and served as the CEO and president at her own firm, Jacoby Staffing.

    She graduated cum laude from Union College in Schenectady and studied for a year in Osaka, Japan, according to her LinkedIn page. Henderson Place was closed off Monday pending an investigation.

    Two women showed up crying hysterically at the corner of Henderson and East 86th Street on Monday afternoon.

    “Why would she do this?” one pal wailed.Lindsay and Seth Jacoby were married in 2005, according to a New York Times announcement.

    The jet-setting mom frequently posted on Facebook about her travels and how proud she was of her son and daughter.

    “This is Istanbul!!! Loving this city, the people and spending quality time with my family!!” she wrote in 2015 along with photos of the family’s trip to Turkey.

    Lindsay’s suicide comes seven months after Margaret Fagenson jumped to her death from a 14th-floor terrace at 535 East 86th St., across the street from 12 Henderson.

    Fagenson, 68, who was married to wealthy investment-banking CEO Robert Fagenson, suffered from depression.

    A neighbor reported seeing the usually "happy and confident" Lindsay becoming increasingly edgy over the last few days.

    “I think there was something going on with them,” he said.

    “It seems like there was something amiss.”
